The stories shared throughout this book and in Chapter 9 are from everyday people; some are "musicians" and most are not. Most are average people who would not consider themselves "musicians" in the formal sense of the word; they don't study chords, theory or practice an instrument. Their experiences will show what possibilities exist for transformation and human connection and community in very real ways thru the eyes of real everyday common people. These beings have experienced a greater sense of community, a deeper feeling of "belonging," and an ability to overcome depression, anxiety and deep seated fears thru the experiences of playing music, dancing, drumming and participatory music making.

I hope to inspire more community sharing in each reader, thru music making, drumming, and dancing together. It is my experience that being together in these ancient and familiar ways strengthens a community and the individuals in it in ways that are indescribable but very real. It has transformed my life deeply to participate, witness and observe the subtle and powerful ways that music can work thru us.

I sincerely hope that this book touches something in you and entices you to play, dance, sing and share more with others thru the Magic and Mystery of the Muse within you!
