and the work of
Greetings and thank you for visiting this website to learn more about my work!
Many of you who find your way here arrive so at the recommendation of a friend or family member. And in many ways, their experience and stories of how the work of Vox Topography has served to assist in their unfolding is the best way to begin to understand what it is I teach and how I go about doing so.
As a songwriter, and a lover of prose and poetry, words and their flow, frequency and its vibrational medicine moves me to do what I do. Generating expanded consciousness and awakening the human heart, opening our perception and taking action become the pathway to manifesting a life of purpose, dignity and grace.
The 'Whole is greater than the sum of its parts'...indeed.
To be humane is to enter into the alchemical process of becoming human. To become humane we must be willing to have our hearts break open again and again, and in turn live to practice "the how" to remerge into expanding perception of a world with willingness.
A willingness to feel what we once thought as having been broken, irreparable, and instead choose to love it all with the all of what we
truly are, with profound dignity and an evolving and ever-growing sense of what it means to be whole.
To transform our suffering is to enter into it with the eyes and ears as an awakening heart, and to be willing to witness and perceive and experience beyond the veil of what was separate, personal.
Our journey to wholeness begins and ends with radical empathy for all that is within the ancestral, cultural and planetary realms for the sake of all sentient beings.
This is healing. This is prayer made visible.
This is holding on for dear life and loving this precious world with everything we have to give and everything we are willing to receive. This is breathing in and filling our lungs with an overwhelming awareness that we are a collective living expression of immeasurable inhales and exhales, atomic, sub, quark, and quantum particles and waves within the visible and invisible realms of all that was, is, and can be. The task then is to awaken for the sake of the whole, as all is alive within every single moment of our exquisite, floundering, flailing, fledging, and only by the grace of all which has come before, precious life we call our own.
One of the greatest environmental activist authors of our time,
Terry Tempest Williams writes it best.
"Perhaps the wilderness we fear is the pause between our own heartbeats, the silent space that says we live only by grace.
Wilderness lives by this same grace.
Wild mercy is in our hands."
Looking forward to listening with you...
With waterblessings and gratitude,
"To put a world right in order,
we must first put a nation in order,
to put a nation in order,
we must first put a family in order,
we must first cultivate our personal life;
we must first set our heart right"-
"Waking up is not a selfish pursuit of happiness, it is a revolutionary stance,
from the inside out,
for the benefit of all beings in existence."-
"To know who we are,
we must know the people who came before us.
Not just their dates of birth and death,
but how they lived."
