SOUL SESSION COLUMBUS, OH 08.16.17
SOUL SESSION COLUMBUS, OH 08.16.17
Emerging from the fire, transformed and deepened by the journey, we are humbled and overjoyed to participate in the 2017 Circle of Love Gathering New Mexico. The wisdom of the heart is calling and we are listening. Join us and the inspired music team, teachers, and fellow participants at the 5 day retreat. Held at the historic Ghost Ranch in Abiquiu, NM, home to Georgia O'Keefe and legions of artists, seekers, and adventurers. Come for the connection and inspiration. Leave with a heart full of joy!
We received the call yesterday.
The oncologist's office rang with news that the CT scan was clear. No Evidence of Disease. We listened with smiles and tears, hung up the phone, and gave each other a fierce hug. We had held the vision that this would be the outcome, that we would emerge from the tumult and find our way back to vibrant and perfect health. And...the deep sense of relief uncorked the flow of feelings we had held at bay- the unexpressed doubts, the low hum of worry, the what ifs..
What we know is that we made it through with the powerful love and embrace of so many; the astounding support, the silly cards and inspiring letters, the steady stream of love that took as many shapes as the hearts that served it. We are so deeply grateful, and our words stumble trying to describe the measureless expanse of feeling. Gratitude.
Thank you for being with us on this journey, for walking with us through the fire. We have been healed and transformed by the process.
May our music transmit the feeling when our words fall short.
We hope to see you soon. xoxo Lisa and Erika
We give great thanks for so many miracles and blessings this season. Erika is now half way through the chemo rounds and all things are looking very good. She continues to eat well, meditate and make music as we navigate through this journey. Her appetite is good and spirits are elevated.
Acupuncture is still a key component to the healing process. The incorporation of Ayurvedic medicine has proven to be an extremely beneficial addition as well. Choosing the foods which support Erika's body as she goes through chemo are having a very positive effect on minimizing side effects. Her energy level is excellent! We raked leaves the other day...Fun to be out in the yard smelling the leaves and air which are unique to this time of the year. Many of you know what I mean...It's that late autumn fragrance which we both agree is comorting even though we know it's about to get pretty darn cold! ;-)
As autumn begins to shift to winter, we are enjoying the colors of the trees, the sky and the mystery of forces which are calling us to retreat within.
New music is coming through as well! We are making the best of the time we are in one place and are creating some new expressions...I'm getting to play more piano which I haven't done in many years. Erika is playing more cello and together, we're writing, reading and meditating. Counting down the days and being as present as we can be in each moment to give and receive the many gifts of this healing journey.
We KNOW we are surrounded by the light of your love and kindness.
Your prayers, thoughtful cards, books, tithes and donations, laughter, calls, food and numerous expressions of love have been overwhelming. We have many things to be grateful for this season and always.
If you wish to send a tithe of support for Erika's healing or to our music ministry, please click the yellow DONATE button on the left column. Thank YOU.
Have a very Happy Thanksgiving and many blessings throughout this holiday season. Be the LIGHT.
With Infinite love and deep gratitude,
Lisa and Erika
Stronger Every Day
Greetings dear friends.
It's been a couple of weeks since I last updated you all. Happy to report that all is going very well.
Your prayers, cards, gifts, childrens art, tithes, grown up art, music, food, flowers, books, affirmations and continued healing love have been lifting Erika and getting the energy back into the body. She's been doing really well and getting stronger every day. We both love and appreciate you all so much. We know we're on this journey with so many who are surrounding her/us with love.
Having spent the better part of the last several years touring and meeting all of you, this shift has us sitting in what we feel is the sacred center. This experience brings the realization and awarness that you all have turned toward us at once...We are being beamed with love and light from all directions! No words to describe this but the gratitude is overflowing.
Yesterday was chemo number 3 of 12. We met with the oncologist and he is pleased with all the results. Blood work confirms the chemo is doing its job. He expressed that even more than the blood work, Erika's appetite, strength and the overall good vibe were the best markers of outcome and superior health. The treatments will continue on track every two weeks through mid-February.
Generally, the week of chemo is the week she can experience fatigue. She's doing the acupuncture the day before and the day after chemo along with one time the following week. We THANK YOU for pitching into the acupuncture/wellness fund. This has made a tremendous difference and Erika has not experienced nausea since we started implementing this order of care. SO grateful.
Next week, she will get to meet with the OSU Dr. of Ayurveda. (Word from India and translates to The science of Life) How cool that OSU makes this available. It's a complete overview of lifestyle, food, stress management, herbs and supplements,yoga...The whole body approach. She will include this in the treatment as well. Many of you know Erika is an incredibly healthy eater, meditator and yogini. This will simply assist in tweaking all the good and perhaps uncover a few areas which could benefit from some modifications.
Last week, we walked nearly every day. Two of those days we walked close to 2 and a half miles. Last Friday was 6 weeks post big surgery which explains the strength and improved stamina. All is going well and we know prayer works!
Last week we got to do two short performances. We did one of our Music meditations, we call them "Soul Sessions." We do them once a month with Rev. Molly hosting us at CSL Columbus. We are loving it here and the enjoying the wonderful autumn weather. Simply gorgeous.
We also got to play a few songs for the wedding of our friends, Laurel and Tim. Fortunately both events were within minutes of our home. This brought good spirits as it's the most normal thing we've done in weeks! Make music. ;-)
Thank you for your continued support. We feel you all with us.
