This book is for everyone!I invite you to listen to my interview with author Shawne Mitchell to hear an in-depth preview of her book, Transcendental Leadership.

At any given time you can be on either side…

beauty of ReMembering … of feeling 
the power that is Keeping Watch ….
”resonating the musical calm inside
the chaos of the world”.

“… tidings from the heart of the universal Great Spirit of all things.”Clever and intelligent raven has come with his prophecy and insight encouraging us to remember. Remember this. We are guests on this planet and we are called to be the guardians, the protectors, of our precious life gifting Mother Earth.We are connected heart to heart to one another in love by the very heart beat of our Mother planet. In our connectedness there is no such thing as a single action.

“the holy land of water”.

Classical Music and Cartoons Part 2 this Weekend Sept 4th and 5th

Countless people have written to me telling me that, as children, they learned Classical Music while watching cartoons. I truly believe the brilliant combination was no coincidence. Add laughter to the mix and what we’ve got is mystically magical.


Jill Rothman: Surprises Can Be Counted 

Surprises Can Be Counted. Borrowing from the library worlds and bundles, hearts and triumphs, characters for company, facts that pull try this, try that.  But today, reading a poem about home, a polished maple leaf, extending its stem like an arm, falls from the pages where it had been placed to dry by another poetry fan. A forgotten leaf left or purposely so a guest could receive the unexpected. 

I delight in the dilemma of
let it hitchhike back in the book
or is it my gift to sit in my kitchen
on the large maroon plate
where it will remind
how poems arrive.

Classical Music and Cartoons this Weekend August 28th and 29th

Jill Rothman: We Four Generations

I love and identify with Jill’s true and continuing story of the gift of We Four Generations. In my very large family I have “marveled at the majesty” of the enchanting experience of being in the presence of four generations.


Jill Rothman: Accessories and Posture

Jill enjoys creating characters, and, in
Accessories and Posture she introduces us
to two, very colorful, and unique personalities.

It is the future of Basil and Dandelion that has me 
curious and excited. No hat? Really?

You may sense a bit of a grin on Jill’s face as she recites 
Accessories and Posture.


Jill Rothman: Custom Tailoring

I am excited to introduce talented artist, poet and singer songwriter, Jill Rothman, to the Global Heart Community.

Jill describes herself as a person of few words who “loves to create snapshots of what goes on in peoples lives” and delights in conjuring her own interesting characters.

“Everything I Want To Say About Love” is Jill’s greeting card line
that expresses how she has embraced and taken pleasure in life.


Jasmin Holley: Gather

Gather is a poem that I refer to as a
prayer, a soulful prayer, and a call to action in
these times of great change on our
planet.

Denise Kester: Forest Spirit

She walks through the doorways
that feel like barriers
to those -
who are not fine-tuned in the art
of seeing the multi-dimensional quality
of life teeming with offerings of assistance
and filled -
with the helpful assurance of alignment
that reinforces the connected bonds between living things -
allowing access to the sacred source
of all things -
adding to the overall strength and fortitude of the Forest Spirit’s ability to steadfastly protect the birds and other small essential beings
of the forest -
with a little help from her friends.

Denise Kester: Crow’s Magic Jar

Crow’s Magic Jar

Crow has been gathering and storing magic that the people have thrown away, not knowing or recognizing what they were doing. Crow has been keeping the magic jar hidden and safe until the time is right to release the magic again.

Fox knows that Crow is keeping the magic. Fox tries to convince Crow that we all need the magic right now. 

Fox says:

“We can’t wait any longer. Not all people are ready, but, lots of them are, and if you release the magic back into the world they will see it and be encouraged.” 

“They will see the truth of it.” 

“They will see the beauty of it.  

“Maybe.” says Crow

“It’s worth a try.” says Fox

“Maybe.” Says Crow


Denise Kester: Fire Fox and The Alchemy of Release

The fire burned hot
Everything gone
Nothing left
Nothing to hold on to
She had to let go
A bitter longing release
Yet
Out of the devastation
comes the alchemical
chain of events
that allows the
unexpected to take root
and rise, when it could not
rise before 


International Music Weekdays on Global Heart 2 Heart Radio

International Music is a mix of melodies from the neighboring cultures of South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and beyond. The diverse instrumental styles and vocal complexities are colorful and spirited. If you’re adventuresome you will be captivated by the polyrhythmic exuberant international vibes.


Denise Kester: Kin

I am the sister of the moon and
kin to the silent owl in the night
that seeks the sleeping bear.

Quiet and reverent in the exquisite wonder of life,
with its cycles of death and birth.

Traveling through time, again and again,
With splendor and grace,
stumbling, again and again

I am here, recycled and transmuted for the glory
of the earth and the earthbound things,
that the Universal God Mind chooses to experience.
Ah, the beauty and depth of the dance that never ends.

So it is. And so, may it always be.

Celebrate your Independence Day with Music to Heal the World

I invite you to enjoy a Heart 2 Heart journey as we celebrate Music to Heal the World on this 4th of July Weekend.


Denise Kester: Ganesh’s Daughter

One day Ganesh's daughter is having a talk with her friend Raven Crow. She wonders aloud "what if those obstacles hold unforeseen treasures? What if the obstacles are not obstacles after all; maybe, they are really opportunities or perhaps a portal to higher consciousness? Maybe the obstacles are not as solid or substantial as people think they are. They need to figure this out for themselves. Because, if they don't figure it out, the obstacle always comes back. It may look different but it is the same obstacle." 

Raven Crow says, "Yes, perception is a tricky thing. What you are seeing may not be what you are looking at. In fact, I can see in two directions at once, which makes it possible to see in between things, where nothing, is, as it appears to be. Moving in between things is a great way to get around obstacles.”

"Exactly Right!" exclaims Ganesh's daughter. "What seems impenetrable is really an illusion. See this green wall of chaos blocking my way? I can step in it and through it, like this." She pulls Raven Crow along with her. After a few minutes Raven Crow is able to catch his breath and says, "Well, that was a bit of a squeeze,.. but,.. I feel pretty good, now." Ganesh's daughter says "Yeah, but, wasn’t it worth it? Think of all the time we just saved by going through, rather than around.”


Denise Kester: Medicine Woman Protecting The Wild Heart

Protect the wild and precious heart Hold the duality of life and death tenderly In open hands It is the wild unfolding presence of what is Be ready to lift and let her fly.

Denise Kester  drawingonthedream.com


Denise Kester: Mother Natura

She listens intently to the cycles of the natural world. She holds the lotus of creation and leans into the tree of life. She sees with soul eyes and hears the pulse of life in the in-between places. Here is where the quiet hum of life is always present. For her, the hum is teeming with the amplified sound of life in all its forms. She is fully engaged with the verdant communion and reunion with all life.  
She is always present.

Denise Kester drawingonthedream.com


Denise Kester: Thunderbird’s Gift

“Do you trust me”? She asks Yes and yes again, What ever comes, I trust you. Out of the great wide open of not knowing and uncertainty the Thunderbird appears opening her heart allowing her prayers to  fall upon my open mind
into my hands, creating.

Her prayers merge with my prayers and they land where the cranes of peace rest in the meadow of my heart near the lake of still waters where the quiet imaginings create ripples of light that catch my attention.

A soft lapping as the ripples 
reach the shore, murmuring,
Everything’s going to be okay
Everything’s going to be okay
Everything’s going to be okay

Denise Kester: Bear and Raven in Mind

Bear came into Mind while the universe was arranging and rearranging its self.
A spark of inspiration, a fleeting thought from the great spirit of time out of mind.
The Great Dreaming has begun.

While the universe is in motion, in the dance of becoming, dancing to the music of the spheres, bouncing and bounding among and off of themselves, cause and effect in the chaos, bursting with the energy of stars exploding, flash and boom. 

In this cacophony, 

...there is a stillness......

Jasmin Holley: My Gifts

We all have certain gifts that are ours alone yet their purpose is for serving the whole.  It certainly is an interesting paradox how one persons unique gifts are designed to serve the whole of humanity.  Understand the purpose of your gifts as service and  you will realize truth.

Make space, open your mind and your heart, center yourself  because as Jasmin tells us “The time is coming. The test is now”. Hear how Jasmin’s purpose becomes clear as she recites My Gifts

Jasmin Holley: The Bubble

I did an exercise once where I drew a big circle and inside my inner “bubble” was what I would allow into my life. I believe  it opened me to “receive all that is possible”.
Jasmin’s poem has reminded me of that exercise. It was an exercise in responsibility. What we allow ourselves to receive with conscious understanding is something we do, not only for ourselves, but for the highest good of all.

I invite you to hear what happens around us and within us as Jasmin recites The Bubble

Jasmin Holley: Father Healing

I believe we all share a universal bond in our longing and desire for love. Father Healing, if you allow it, will touch you in that distant unguarded place in your heart where Love resides. There is profound complexity to Jasmin’s story that, yes, is literal yet simultaneously symbolic in the “wanting of my father’s love”. Feel the fortitude in the depth of her feeling as Jasmin Holley recitesFather Healing

Jasmin Holley: Faith

Faith is a complex concept.It is powered by Grace. We are assured by a faith that builds confidence in what we hope for. Trusting in faith delivers us to a sense of certainty that all will be well.Jasmin tells us of a place that transforms us and“a way of faith that is soft and kind, fun and joyous, fast and sure”.Listen to Jasmin Holley speak of learning with joy and love as she recites Faith.


Jasmin Holley: The Laws of the Universe

I love this poem. Jasmin’s authentic vulnerability gives you permission to share those things which have hurt you as she humbly asks questions that warrant careful consideration.

From the depth of her being an answer arrives,
“Make the best of what your heart tells you…
The path of your heart may be all there is, all that is known.”

You will discover the essence of this narrative substantial 
when you hear the compassionate heart of Jasmin Holley recite
The Laws of the Universe


Jasmin Holley: The Grenfell Tower

I celebrate the return of the all-encompassing heart-mind of Jasmin Holley to the Poet’s Corner as she immediately invites us to open ourselves to consider “What kind of world are we living in?”

The Grenfell Tower is a public-spirited call to honor diversity, to honor our sameness …our oneness. This Golden Rule is for all people everywhere.
All are children of the universe.
Please, please, please is Jasmin’s request and prayer.
I read somewhere that sometime in history “please”
replaced the word for pray.

Hear the passion in Jasmin’s heart as she recites
The Grenfell Tower


Elin Babcock: Bear Creek Bridge

The inevitable bridge we are destined to cross. The water is wide and even the most powerful among us hesitate at the start. And while you wonder if you will make it to the other side “the wind is telling jokes to the trees… ” Will she make it? Yet, without hesitation, the venturesome Elin Babcock endeavors on-word to the other side. Listen to happy carefree Elin tell of her feat overThe Bear Creek Bridge


Elin Babcock Rust Delicate Unwanted Beauty

Along the Way of her Camino pilgrimage Elin Babcock gained an insight into rust
from rust’s point of view. Interesting that two of the most important life
giving elements, Oxygen and Water, are the
very same ingredients that cause iron to rust.
And, intriguing, that iron, universally perceived
as the symbol of human strength, in time will
change entirely into rust and disintegrate in
the presence of oxygen and water.

Listen now to Elin’s insightful wisdom as she recites
Rust: Delicate Unwanted Beauty


Here Comes the Sun

Here comes the Sun .. It is officially Spring! A new day is dawning …more Light Light Light.The Byrds are singing the sweet music of springtimeDaffodils emerging and yearning to be free means it’s time for dancin’ in the streets to sweet sweet music.  Arise and awaken to good good good vibrations from the 60’s, 70’s,80’s  Rock-n-roll, Motown and so much more…We’re turning it on again and taking it to the limit with bloomin’ music all weekend longGive it up and keep on dancin’ onGlobal Heart 2 Heart Radio.


Elin Babcock Forgiving Myself

Forgiveness is a concept
likely to have graced you
at some time in your life.

Whether you needed to forgive or were hoping to be forgiven
or…  most challenging…. wanted to forgive yourself.
What I call freeing myself from myself.
It is a potent gift of grace and love always and in all ways.

Forgiveness is certainly Divine, healing and a way of loving
as Elin Babcock tells us as she recites Forgiving Myself.


Spring Has Sprung

Set your clocks to Spring ahead!Here comes the sun… I’m all revved up and so excited I just can’t hide it.Spring has sprung.

Santiago de Compostela.

journey with Elin Babcock as she recites

Classical Music and Cartoons this Weekend February 27th and 28th

Countless people have written to me telling me that, as children, they learned Classical Music while watching cartoons.
I truly believe the brilliant combination was no coincidence. Add laughter to the mix and what we’ve got is mystically magical.

I’ll be mixing up the music this weekend to the tune of a barber in the south of Spain being taunted by a rabbit in drag, a viking hunting that very same rabbit who also shows up in drag,(the girl gets around!), a crazy red-headed cowboy and a rabbit chasing each other on horseback, followed by a wolf and a few pigs doing a polka. Talk about laughter. Well, Beep Beep to that.
Do you  really want to miss it? Join me and the whole gang of zany characters on

         On Global Heart 2 Heart Radio

Classical Music and Cartoons this Weekend February 13 and 14th

Classical Music and Cartoons. The ultimate in complementary art forms. Two things I cherish in life are music and laughter and I have recently learned that it is fashionable to acknowledge the influence cartoon music has had on society.There are a multitude of masterful classically infused cartoon scores all punctuated with great gags, whacky sound effects and the exquisite synchronization of music with the micro movement of slapstick action. Hundreds of millions of people the world over first experienced classical music watching ducks, cats and rabbits playing piano, swans swimming down river and magic flutes floating in air. We feasted our senses on a crew of crazy animals prancing, dancing, running and fighting to some of the most famous pieces of classical music ever written.  I invite you to join me for a looney few hours of Hungarian Dances, Overtures, Rhapsodies and Waltzes On Global Heart 2 Heart Radio

Denise Kester: A Creation Story The Birth of Gaia

Well here we are at the Beginning of Something New!

Having officially entered the Age of Aquarius we are at 

the precipice of a world changing for the better.

The dynamic saturation of color combined with the natural 

free-flowing movement seen in the New Beginnings print 

is certainly a statement for this very moment.

A Creation Story - the Birth of Gaia and the Beginning of Something New 

is potent, compelling and evocative. It says it all.

Allow yourself time to slowly take it all in a few times at least.

Denise Kester: She Arrives

The time has come. We have arrived to the age of ordained change.
We meet this moment with internal awakening as the worldly facade morphs anew.

Here is the magic, the mythic, or as Denise puts it Jaguar strength and instincts.
Hold steady now we must as we arise from the waters that hold us in grace.
We are emerging restored and hopeful. Hold steady now.

This weeks featured poem, She Arrives, carries what I sense is a vital message
for this time of divine refinement we are living through ….heed the call and fiercely love…..
stretch ourselves beyond and outside of ourselves to fiercely love……

Listen to the sweet sound of awakening as Denise Kester narrates
She Arrives

Denise Kester: Strong Heart

Welcome to the Poets Corner and our last posting for 2020.

This year has shown us our fragile life force and it has also shown us our strength. Living from our heart space, the space that radiates Love, is what matters the most if life is to matter at all. Here again is Denise’s soul work, heart work, her vision in action holding our world together. Strong Heart, featured poem of the week, is befitting for this last week of 2020. As Denise’s poem states; “It takes a strong heart to rebuild, reseed and replant….” We can move out of 2020 and into 2021 knowing that we  have whatever strength it may take for us to rebuild our lives as we move forward from our hearts. Hear the strength of Denise’s vision as she narrates Strong Heart

The title alone of this weeks featured poem, A Renaissance of Heart, oozes now.  And, Denise’s imaginative artistry and succinct verse carries us gently yet deliberately nearer to these newly emerging, shifting and expansive times. It is surely a delight to hear Denise narrate for us A Renaissance of Heart

Poet’s Corner Features Jasmin Holley

"At this time of gathering, of thought and thankfulness,
Take a moment of time to thank our Mother Earth,
her waters, her trees, and her life giving breeze.
We forget that all things living, need thought and attention;
Our Mother Earth is no different.
In this time of strife and world change, it is more important,
than ever before, to be thank-full to all that gives us life.
Take a moment to send light and love, to those who wish us harm,
those who teach us the value of who we are."

They breathe through me,

and the earth grows green.

Dr. Wangari Maathai and the Green Belt Movement

It has been influenced and nurtured by the formal education I was privileged to receive in Kenya, the United States and Germany. As I was growing up, I witnessed forests being cleared and replaced by commercial plantations, which destroyed local biodiversity and the capacity of the forests to conserve water”…… In 1977 when we started the Green Belt Movement, I was partly responding to the needs identified by rural women, namely lack of firewood, clean drinking water, balanced diets, shelter and income.”
