Song of the Soul: How Song Can Connect Us To Our Life Purpose and to Mother Earth - with Songwriter, Ceremonial Singer and Song Carrier Ayla Schafer

published on

An interview with singer-songwriter, ceremonial musician and song carrier Ayla Schafer. Ayla shares her musical journey and life learnings from the moment she received her first guitar, through her early years as a singer-songwriter, to her 'Hero's Journey' as she fell out of love with music only to remember her true voice, passion and purpose, her very own Song of the Soul, during her time of 're-birth' among the native peoples of Mexico and Peru.

Ayla's journey has taken her around the world and into the heart of many cultures. In this open, heartfelt conversation she shares the ancient wisdom she has learned from the traditions of those cultures, and explains her deep understanding of our connection to the Earth, to each other, to all life and to song. Ayla discusses the Song of the Soul that resides in us all, how we can connect with it, how it connects us to our life purpose, how we can reconnect with the Earth and the elements, how we can live more harmoniously with the planet and each other, and the importance of living each day as a living prayer. Throughout the interview, Ayla's strong belief in the healing power of song shines through, as does her respect for the ancient wisdom of native traditions and her strong connection to Mother Earth.
