From Darkness Comes Light


On a crisp sunny December day here in CT, 2012, the unthinkable happened to my friends, neighbors and coworkers in the neighboring town of Newtown CT,  specifically, the little village of Sandy Hook.

My Circles Of Love and the Hand Drums & Hula-Hoops initiative was conceived and established in direct response to that tragic event and my need – OUR need – to help and move from darkness to the light.


Hand Drums & Hula-Hoops For Sandy Hook ElementaryThrough the intrinsic power and exhilarating fun of percussion music, drum circles, rhythmic dancing and hooping, our gift to this school will  help heal the wounds and bring new found light and love to this wonderful community.

The goal is to donate the items to the school in the early spring and facilitate circles of love through a kick-off special event.  I’ll be working with local friends and school personnel to plan a celebration of spring that’s inclusive and fun for all.

If this is something that interests you, please send me a message using the form below or call me and we’ll talk. 

Music and dance heal. If you haven’t had a chance to reach out to this community yet, please consider doing it now.

CLICK IN AND DONATE what you can – no amount is too small and any amount is greatly appreciated.
