God’s Power, Healing Through the Arts in the Time of COVID-19 (coronavirus)

I’m editing a book called Ananda Seva — The Happiness of Living for God: Conversations with Fifty-Four Founding Members of the Ananda Communities.

The final section of the book deals with music as a service. And, well — the proof is in the singing. Here’s a video that, I believe, attests to the healing power of song.

The album “God’s Power: Healing Songs & Affirmations” was a collaboration 30 years ago between Angelika Schafer (https://angelikahealingmusic.com), who produced and published it, and Carol Padget.

Here are the residents of Ananda Europa, the Ananda center in Assisi, Italy, singing “God’s Power.” Many of the singers have sung and performed together for years, even decades, hence the unity of harmony and power in their song. (P.S. “God’s Power” is a favorite of the children in the Living Wisdom Schools.)
