Valarie Budayr: Sound Therapy Practitioner and Impassioned Teacher
Interview with Mitchel Clute from Sounds True
“It brings together work from eight female practitioners whose creative and philanthropic work extends beyond the boundaries of culture, gender, politics, and economics. These women are playing key roles in defining the new era, focusing on community, ecology, and the well-being of future generations in creative and inspiring ways. The exhibition offers an understanding of ‘difference’ and ‘trauma’, social or environmental, and attempts to turn them into empathy and respect – a contrast to the presiding divisive – and fearful – the sentiment of these contemporary times.” Event Founder, Kate Mieczkowsk
It was an honor to be among so many talented women! Here’s the replay link. Hope it inspires you as much as it did me!! Many thanks to Kate Mieczkowska for organizing this!!!Posted by Valarie Budayr on Thursday, September 3, 2020
