Come and Experience the Medicine Song

(Canada chronicles continued ...)

One day in July I met with aboriginal healer and singer - MedicinesongWoman (Brenda MacIntyre). We had communicated before via Myspace in connection with music, but this was our first time meeting in person. We sat and chatted for quite a while over tea at Ellington's Music & Café. One of the things we spoke about was a listening party Brenda wanted to have for her new CD "Medicine Song". Feeling moved by her sincerity and the passion she has for getting her work out as a healing offering for self & other (which is also how I see my work), I offered to help her promote her listening party by creating an e-flyer and a simple video (using Supernova's video function). See video above.

One of the things that Brenda/Medicinesong Woman does is long distance energy healing and channeling. So, in return for what I created for her, she offered to give me a session. Of course I said yes. We did it about 2 Fridays ago from our separate locations and it was fantastic. The experience includes the energy healing, channeling and a special chant which she brings down especially for the person receiving the energy healing. I won't go into all the details of what happened, what was said, etc, but if you are interested in finding out more and/or experiencing a session for yourself, you can contact Brenda directly.

Those who are in Toronto, please consider attending the listening party this Thursday 27 August, 7:30 p.m., Ellington's Music & Café, 805 St. Clair West Avenue. By Donation. I'm sure it will be one of those experiences that makes you say "I'm really glad I came to this."

The e-flyer I designed

I wish I could be at the Listening.
Lovely video (sounds of songs lovely to hear) and very attractive flyer you created too! You are such the artist in so many ways. Glad you are having so many wonderful experiences in Toranto. When do you return home?
Oscar must miss you terribly. I wonder if you are thinking of moving to Canada? Hummm?

Very beautiful e-flyer. The art is so suited to the essence of medicine song.

Thanks so much for posting this. The video is so nice...I had to visit her and buy her cd which I shared with a group at my house today. Lovely.

You rock, Elspeth! Thank you so much for coming out to the party and for the beautiful video and e-flyer, but also for sharing your creative ideas. The party was very meaningful and I could see people really enjoyed the atmosphere.

So glad to have you as a friend.

Love & Light,
Brenda, Medicine Song Woman
