Today I was ruffled awake by a sunbeam. She fluffed my eyelids and tousled my hair. I felt her energy and I added to it with music from the Fabulous Rickie Byars Beckwith
and the Agape International Choir.
Rickie and the choir are an inspiration. With the choir topping out at over 160 members they are true rainbow of talent and passion. Over the years they have performed at homeless shelters on skid row, Oprah, the democratic national convention, and countless other venues. They go where ever they can get people moving and share their message of harmony among all people.
As I listened, danced and snapped a finger or two, a memory wiggled loose. It was about four years ago and I had talked my way into photographing the Celebration of Oneness in Pasadena. A three day event that was chock full of inspirational healers and leaders. It was an exhausting but fantastic three days in which I had gotten to sit in on lectures from Dr John Gray, Rev Michael Bernard Beckwith, Jack Canfield, Arianna Huffington, Lisa Nichols and many many more.
At the end of the event was a concert with the Choir. I can remember being at the foot of the stage and feeling the amazing energy radiating from the performers. The best seat in the house.
These are just a few images from that event so long ago...my tribute to the Fire in the Choir!
