    [Voice Rising Radio Show] Marla Leigh Goldstein

    There is a 500-year-old Otomi prophecy that says When 8000 sacred drums sound together, an intense healing of Mother Earth will commence.” Join Voice Visionary Kara Johnstad and grammy-nominated frame drum specialist, flutist, and composer Marla Leigh Goldstein is a heartfelt conversation on the art of Frame Drumming. How can we stay positive through challenging times by using the language of rhythm? A mystical instrument used by Priestesses and Shamans in cultures worldwide for rituals, celebrations, and rites of passage, drumming is powerful medicine. The drum is a voice of great power, alive and feeling. When it speaks, we must listen. Drumming increases our Alpha brainwaves, those feelings of well-being and euphoria, strengthens our immune systems, heals stress, and helps us express our feelings when words fail. Most of all, drumming can put us into a deep state of calmness and well-being. Can the universal language of rhythm help us rediscover our genuine connections and heal our bodies and communities? Yes, it can, and Marla Leigh is right there with us, cheering us on as we seek to nourish our creative nature and deepen our connection with ourselves and mother earth.

    [Enjoy our latest eZine] The Beauty Of Soaking In A Language Bath

    We feel it in our heartbeat, our footsteps, and our breath. We are rhythmic and cyclical beings. We have our own inner "drum" going on all the time. Well, at least I do. There is a pulse even when I am sitting for my daily meditation or deep-diving into my morning songwriting sessions with Mr. Steinway. On some days, my heart is moving quicker than usual, and on other days, there is a slowness, a "hey, take it easy, it's a rainy fall day. There's no need to rush, only a need for deep hush" as you tune in [ continue reading ... ]

    [Enjoy our latest eZine] Jump Start Your Day With Singing

    Many people have asked me, when is the best time to sing? My answer is always the same. Anytime. 

    I'm not sure why so many people believe that their voice doesn't work well in the morning hours. Me, I love having a morning singing practice. Tuning into my voice when I am fresh and rested connects me deeply with my intuition. How is it for you?

    You'll find this and many more topics in our latest eZine. [Continue exploring our latest eZine]
