Join Me and Soundings of the Planet in Seattle for an Uplifting Community Gathering

Soundings of the Planet's Dudley and Dean Evenson have been creating healing music for decades. I was fortunate to meet them in Boulder recently (that's us in the picture to the right at my Boulder Book Store signing).

When I heard that their musical compositions are used at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, I invited them to share that with the others.

Ah, but I was the lucky dog who got to leave with samples! [Check out their Flash Galley for your own sampling...] After listening to Eagle River by Dean and the Soundings Ensemble, I can see clearly how this music must go a long way in bringing a bit of beauty and comfort to our service members and their family supporters when they need that soothing the most.

As fortunate as I was to have had a chance to meet them, my greater fortune is that the Evensons were only visiting Boulder; their home base is in Bellingham, Wash, and they've confirmed that they will join us tomorrow night at University Bookstore! Yeah.

Join me this Thursday@University Bookstore, 7 pm.

Oh, we are going to have a great gathering. In addition to my short presentation, we've convened quite a group of hard-working hearts out in the Seattle area.

  • Dean and Dudley Evenson will be my special guests. Owners of Soundings of the Planet in Bellingham, their most recent 'peace through relaxation' DVDs and booklets are being used at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. Visit soundings' Partners in Healing page for more.
In addition, my incredible sponsors, Soldier's Heart-Seattle, have invited these guests for an informal panel:

  • Gordon (Gordy) Graham, a Vietnam veteran with PTSD who runs a state program to get veterans involved in environmental projects;
  • John Roth, a wounded Iraq vet currently writing a book about his experiences;
  • Sally Jo Gilbert de Vargas, a member of the Soldier’s Heart Seattle steering committee who recently attended one of Dr. Edward Tick’s retreats for veterans with PTSD and their caregivers (upcoming events).

See you in Seattle!
