If I cannot fly, let me sing. —Stephen Sondheim Singing is one of the most accessible pathways to an unlimited, joyful life force. Lisa G.

Through gentle, exploratory invitations and a repertoire of more than 500 oral-tradition songs to choose from, she invites singers to expand and delight in the full potential of their voices. Her style is shaped by 30 years of vocal training and rooted in compassionate awareness practices.
