    Fabrizio Pigliucci – Tales of Clay and Other Soulful Stories
    OMTimes Radio VOICE RISING with Host Kara Johnstad
    FREE ARCHIVE 

     

    Music is a universal healing force. Join Voice Visionary Kara Johnstad and film composer, multi-instrumentalist, storyteller, peace activist, and dream catcher Fabrizio Pigliucci in a heartfelt conversation exploring the healing power of music. On his newest album release, “Tales of Clay,” a collection of soulful stories, Fabrizio invites us to reflect on humanity’s importance in returning to the central values of the essence of life. Principles such as simplicity, nurturing friendships, living more from the heart, and taking time to discover the extraordinary in the ordinary. Simple things such as singing together around a fire, sharing meals with each other, creating beauty, taking more quality time for expression and love. Do we carry as a collective a unified vision of what we wish for our mother earth? What life do we wish for our children? In a world facing a global pandemic, struggling with division, and on the verge of a massive climate crisis, Fabrizio Pigliucci explores with Kara how we can use music as a healing force and how by shifting our consciousness and making small changes in our life, we can experience a more peaceful life.
