Music and Spirituality

music and spirituality
Music has the ability to convey messages of greater meaning that can unify and allow us to recognize one another’s humanity.

For example, women may hold a formal job or career (that brings home an income) in addition to informal, often unnoticed “behind the scenes” work that is unpaid. Many of us are raising children or caring for aging parents, both of which involve spending earned income!

Coping with COVID: Can Spirituality Help?

The pandemic is stressful (that may be the understatement of the year). We have more to worry about and less support to help us cope.

Healthy spirituality is something that can make us feel good AND be good for us. It can help reduce the likelihood of turning to alcohol, drugs, and…
