Well, we've made it to the end of this cycle! Tomorrow's Solstice, the great Jupiter/Saturn conjunction, along with recent meteor showers, and world-wide cultural celebrations of light and new cycles ... all conspiring to give us help and support for beginning again, for renewal, for rebirth, just as the sun is thought to be reborn on the day after Winter Solstice. Has this past year been a gift or a nightmare? Has it given you perspective? Has it asked you to slow down? Become more purposeful? Have you experienced sadness, loss, and suffering? Have you experienced joy and connection within your family in unexpected ways? Has it called forth even more flexibility and adaptability? A sense of confusion or doubt? No matter what our experience, we are connected! Your loss is my loss, your joy my joy ...
Can we harness the energies of this time when people all over the world are acknowledging a new cycle, rebirth, renewal? May we move as a human family towards harmony, towards deep cleansing breaths, towards ease, respect, joy and more togetherness as we begin, again.
With appreciation for our connection ...
Below is a Solstice Gift for you, and for the benefit of all ...

Thanks so much for subscribing. I hope you are thriving and well in these challenging and changing times ... times with so much possibility and opportunity if we are willing to see our lives and connections in new ways, and are willing to give up those ways that no longer serve life on Mother Earth! I am working on new ways to share my love for music, sound and healing on line, through schools as well through other pathways. Please feel free to go to my website to listen to lots of free recordings / videos of recent offerings. (expired link)
Also, if you would like to purchase a digital Healing Sound Journey recording, please send $30 through paypal friends and family through my email judypiazza@(expired link). Make sure to note what it is for. The recording is a high quality sound journey based on my development of a medicine wheel of sound to activate and nurture us on all levels, through all our elemental qualities ... including drums, voice, bowls, didjeridu, dulsitar TM, rattles, flute, mantra, and more. This is a way of sharing in these pandemic times! in the comfort of your home, and available for ongoing use. (Best listened to with headphones)
Be WELL in every way, and keep to your pulse and purpose!
Best, Judith Piazza

Dear Keepers of Earth and Lovers of Gaia,
Wow, what a ride! 50 years ago in 1970, Harvard grad student Denis Hayes organized the modern environmental movement that focused attention on protecting our Earth. Climate change was not even in the national discussion at that time. Today, as Earth Day gatherings and activities have moved indoors, Denis Hayes urges us to reimagine Election Day as yet another Earth Day, and encourages us to "vote for the Earth".
Today is also the first day of the new moon, in Taurus, a great time to align with the positive aspect of the "stubborness of a bull" energy, to take action and persist in the ways we choose to, to make necessary changes in the very roots of our foundational being. On this first day of a waxing moon, I welcome the descent of Śakti energy, in the form of Devi Śailaputri, stepping down the mountain as we call on Gaia to help us, to forgive us, to receive our gratitude, and to renew herself as she renews us. It is said that she takes 1,000 steps toward us if we take just a single step towards her. She is connected to the root çakra, the Earth or muladhāra çakra ... what a perfect alignment for this time! Step, even one step, on Earth! What values do we want to hold onto with the persistence of a bull? What values / opinions / beliefs can be discarded as no longer holding true or relevant to today's world?
I write to you hoping that you are well and safe as possible. If you are one of the many who have lost a loved one or are concerned about loved ones, I hope that you find peace along the way. I pray that we know how to shoulder our world's hardships and suffering collectively, and truly become a united community for the good of all our relations. May we never go "back to normal!"
From my heart to yours,
Below is a gift of
Earth Rhythms and Songs,
recorded April 19, 2020, for any time of the year!

As you most likely know, drumming and singing are good for our health! On every level ... emotional, physical, spiritual, mental! Science has proven (as if we needed proof!) over and over again the health-giving benefits of using our voice, of drumming, whether on our own or in circle with others. Online gives us the best of both ; ). Is there a better time than now??
