On the 8th of March, the One Heart Community supported, through love and solidarity, those affected by the Thomas Fire and Montecito Landslide at the beautiful Soho Restaurant & Music Club in Santa Barbara. The enchanting venue was also transformed into a beautiful candlelit and flower-filled garden. Providing a safe haven for all to come together as one. They also shared their heartfelt stories and experiences – through music, meditation and spoken word. It was a true display of the essence and significance of community. And how it allows for a climate of love, peace, connection, hope, and then forward movement.
ONE HEART COMMUNITY GATHERING SUPPORTING THOSE AFFECTED BY THE THOMAS FIRE AND MONTECITO LANDSLIDE
The night was hosted by the majestic Spiritual Owl, who recently appeared as a Mindfulness Guest Speaker at the Los Angeles Women in Music Wellness Summit, Teresa Taylor (owner of Paradise Found in Santa Barbara), and Gail Hansen (owner of Soho Restaurant & Music Club) – who kindly offered her space for the evening.
The room was sonically lit by musical performances by singer-songwriter Johnny Irion, US Elevator and award winning songwriter/composer, Adam Zelkind. Spoken word offerings were also delivered by various members of the community, including Patrick Braid of Village Cheese and Wine, Montecito, who tirelessly supported the first responders — and who continuously supports his beloved community.
This March evening was a pure exhibition of how the simplicity of a kind heart can heal all.
Focus on the light.
