The Heart-to-Heart Songbook

An immersive concert of soul nourishing  songs, poetry, conversations and communal singing.

We invite you to gather and revel in the power of connection, togetherness and love in these dark times.

We humbly offer a sanctuary—a place where grief, joy, and resilience intertwine. 
Let Susan, spiritual counselor and author of the book
“A Heart's Landscape” and Shira fairy folk singer-songwriter, named “golden-voiced singer ” by The New York Times embrace you with an evening created to hold space for deep feelings. 

"The Heart to Heart Songbook" is more than just a concert; it's a testament to the power of music and storytelling to navigate the depths of our humanity. Join us as we hold each other tenderly and find strength in our shared experiences.
