Music & Other Gems Nov 20-23, 2017 – Gratitude Guides, Decides & Abides

 

Gratitude is a powerful force. I can let gratitude guide my choices, help me make decisions and abide by them. I can also use gratitude to transform a situation that I’m resisting into one that I appreciate. Thank you to every-body who came out to dance this holiday week – in person and virtually! I am lucky to get to play with you all. For those celebrating it…Happy Thanksgiving!

The playlists from the week are below. If you’d like to listen to them, you can find almost all the music on Spotify where you can listen for free! Put the music we dance together with other pieces that lift you up, calm you, and challenge you!

But first, here are a couple of things you want to know about:
