Welcome

I'm a Scottish sacred musician, interspiritual minister and singer songwriter now living in rural Vermont.  These songs & reflections are my soul's way of making sense of the beauty, vulnerability and endless richness of this human life. It's a gift and a pleasure to share them with you.

Guest musician for All Souls Interfaith Gathering

Zoom event

Topic: Surrounding into Stillness.

In the spiritual journey and awakening process there are often many periods of turmoil, but we also learn eventually to trust and have faith in something beyond ourselves , letting go of our own ego and self to be still in whatever storm that comes. Rev. Kim Marie alongside Rev Simon de Voil & Rev Don Chatfiled will explore the concept of surrender to this kind of stillness with prayers, readings. meditation and music. Please bring a candle, piece of paper and a dark marker to this zoom service. https://www.allsoulsinterfaith.org/musicspirit 5pm Eastern time zone.
