In a fragmented culture it’s not always apparent how to nurture our children’s relationship to spirit, all that is unknown, unseen, or beyond our understanding.
We may not know ourselves what it means for us to be spiritual beings.
We may not have an intact practice that feels grounded in our being.
Or if we’re fortunate enough to have a deep, consistent and rewarding relationship with spirit, we may not know how to convey this to our child.
Wherever we may find ourselves on this spectrum, we can always rely on music to nurture our relationship to spirit.
Not any song, not any kind of music. It must be something that lifts you, that touches you, that moves you. A surprising rhythm. A sweet melody. A profound baseline. A familiar verse that comes to you when everything feels hopeless.
Fill your home with music, start the day with a funky rhythm, offer your child a daily dose of Bach or bluegrass, country or congas, funk or fado.
