Song of Sofia Concert and Soundbath with Pamela Jane Gerrard

Join musician and muse Pamela Jane Gerrand as she takes you on a journey to your undefended heart, weaving her heart opening original songs and poems. Pamela’s live performances are an activation of the living power of word and sound, described as a blend between ‘shamanic and bardic’. Voicing the Divine Feminine as a channel for the Radiant Heart that is the essence of unconditional love, Pamela invites you to embrace your holy wholeness with pure JOY!

This soothing, uplifting evening will be a blend of deep listening, sharing your voice in sounding/chant, and receiving deeply in the closing sound bath. Be transported to a place of deep peace and infinite love as she weaves the seraphic tones of crystal singing bowls, koshi chimes, buffalo drum, shruti and healing soul song.

“Pamela Gerrand has the rare gift of being able to embody with her voice a deep connection to the kind of beauty and spirit that feeds our souls.” ~ Oriah Mountain Dreamer, author of ‘The Invitation’
