ICARO

MUSIC VIDEO

Blessings from the Catskill Mountains, the Lenape Nations’ ancestral lands, and home to the annual Hunter Mountain Film Festival.  

Sound healing is an ancient practice that uses different musical instruments, including the voice, to create subtle vibrations around the body. Sound induces relaxed states of mind, relieves stress, tension, and activates deep cellular and soul healing.

The earth and her inhabitants have all been greatly affected by the tumultuous events of these times.   Movies are a powerful media, a vehicle that helps us expand our notion of the human journey, inspire us, challenge us, teach us, and touch our hearts. 

Icaro is a medicine song given by the plants to induce a state of healing awareness. This Icaro I received in my garden many years ago.  I am honored to open this festival with a healing Icaro song, a call, and invocation for all sentient beings on this sacred land to rise and persevere.
