Puretone Resonate, Spain –

This was a launch party like no other!

I arrived at Space Mountain in the sleepy village of Albuñuelas, Spain on a hot, arid day in September. The home recording studio belonging to Youth sits atop the side of a massive breathtaking gorge that runs through the center of this region, reminding us of the power of nature.

I settled in for the week and awaited the arrival of Youth’s guests for our launching of Puretone Resonate Festival. As each guest arrived, the house awoke to the music of old friends reconnecting and eager excitement for the upcoming weekend. The energy grew each day until it literally exploded in a flurry of creativity from dawn to dusk and beyond. The boundaries of night and day melted into one as the music played ceaselessly flowing from indoors to outdoors and back again. Workshops set up in the living room, recording sessions in the studio, healers in the ‘hobbit’ rooms, chefs in the kitchen, gongs by the pool, stages below olive groves, chill spaces overlooking the canyon, the full moon peaked and the new moon rose, as the giant sized Lillu flags blew in the breeze!

I saw so many old friends from my days in London and made some wonderful new ones throughout the weekend. I even met the only other Sooz I know. Quite extraordinary, really to meet my namesake and similar kinda lady! Feels like a twin, and we had fun playing on that one!  I believe we will all be connected on a very special level because of this gathering. Our bond is now sealed in a way I can’t quite describe!

Thank you, Youth et al for a fabulous journey. I look forward to the next ~

Post OCF & Wanderlust!

After 10 days on the road in my Eurovan, I’m glad to be back home, doing laundry and catching up with email and friends. Oregon was beautiful and green. Tahoe was stormy and dramatic!

I felt blessed to stop for at least 2 swims a day in the many clean and clear rivers along the way.

In Tahoe, I agreed to bless and drop a crystal into my nearest waterway on September 21st, as part of a massive global water healing event. You can learn more about this event at: http://www.aqualuz.org
