I am very grateful that my creative channel continues to be fertile.  This past month, I wrote my newest song, "Moments," which will be the title song for my 2018 album.

I never know what will emerge from my heart and soul musically.   I do know that when something touches me deeply, and I allow myself to lean into the void, music is often the most authentic voice I can find.

Life is indeed comprised of a string of moments, and being fully present to each moment: joyful, sad, connected, alone allows us to experience life most authentically.  

More on that in this month's featured article:   "Moments:  The True Currency of Life"

Life is made of moments,
A tapestry of moments,
Of every color and hue."

Music Notes

Artful Pianos
Playing at the Newton Center Artful Piano

Music is such a source of great joy, and is a universal language to connect people heart-to-heart. In addition to my own musical gigs,   I also participate in many of the wonderful open mics and other musical events available to local singers:

Amazing Things Arts Center organized by Leslie Holmes
Many BACA (Boston Association of Cabaret Artists) singers perform in a monthly open mic.  This month, it is June 14 at 7 pm.

BACA (Boston Association of Cabaret Artists) Open Mics in Watertown (next one is Wednesday, June 28 at 7 pm at UU Church in Watertown)
Club Café in Boston has many open mics hosted by a wonderful variety of singers and pianists in its Napoleon Room.
The Winiker Band  brings their unique joyous musical flavor to Brothers Restaurant in Brookline, MA on Saturday and Sunday nights.  Singers are welcome.

And here in Waltham at my home, I host special house concerts through the Music Salon.   Jazz pianist   Harvey Diamond  and bassist Jon Dreyer  will join us on June 17.

What is EKP?
EKP is Emotional-Kinesthetic Psychotherapy, a heart-centered, body-centered psychotherapy method Linda Marks developed and has taught and practiced for nearly twenty years. Working with the heart, touch with permission, the wisdom of the body and the intuitive guidance of the spirit, EKP creates a special sense of intimacy that deeply touches and transforms most all who participate.

Participants can be "client," witness or helper as an individual group member has a "turn" to do deeper heart-centered, body-centered psychospiritual work in the center. Since the electromagnetic field of the heart extends out 10 - 12 feet from our bodies, as we go deeper and open our hearts, we are all touched.

EKP helps restore our capacity as organs of perception. The skin is our largest organ, and a source of soul deep knowing, perception and expression. When our hearts and hands can work as one, we move beyond defenses safely and respectfully and find freedom, connection and expression.



Emotional safety is the foundation of EKP.  When we are emotionally safe, we are more aware of feelings, sensations and deeper thoughts in our bodies and hearts.  You will have a chance to listen to and care for your heart as you help create and hold a safe healing space for everyone's heart.  Experience what we mean when we say that in EKP, "when anyone has a turn, everyone has a turn."
