Dear Viriditas Community,
It’s the month of Thanksgiving. This year there’s a lot to be grateful for in the Land Of Viriditas. The decision David and I made to split our participation in the NoBo 1st Friday event and our Tap Into Transformation event was a good one. We hosted our first NoBo 1st Friday on Nov. 4th. Six people visited the studio. While it took a little convincing on the part of yours truly, four of the visitors put on tap shoes and joined David and me on the dance floor. We put on some Michael Jackson and had a great time. I do believe we’ll be seeing some of these folks at our next Tap Into Transformation on Nov. 18th. It was wonderful for David and me to focus 100% on our visitors and to tell them all about the adventures that happen at the Viriditas Studio.
It’s clear to me that the artistic community in North Boulder is alive and well. I’m looking forward to hosting the NoBo Art District Mixer on Dec. 7th in the studio. This will give me a chance to share the beautiful Viriditas Studio with other artists in the district and to begin to get to know them more deeply.
Perhaps the thing I’m most grateful for is the never-ending creativity that flows through David and me. We will be launching our fifth year of Tap Into Transformation this month. Click on the image below to view the promo video for our November 18th event. I’ve always loved the Kung Fu Panda movies as well as the theme song. David has two black belts, and one is in Kung Fu. We had a total blast creating this dance, and we can hardly wait to share it with you! Rest assured, I will have headbands for each of you!

Gratitude fills my heart when I contemplate the launching of my Doctor Of The Soul events last Saturday. The event launched the first of a seven-part series using the music of St. Hildegard in our soul healing process. We were ten amazing souls in the studio on Saturday. What a blessing!
David accompanied many of our activities on the keyboard. One of the greatest compliments I received after the event was David saying, “Jeannine, in some ways this felt like a black church.” He was referring to how the music opened up people’s hearts and souls. I always marvel at the capacity of St. Hildegard’s music to open the door to the soul and how people of all the spiritual traditions find ways to connect to her work. So much sweetness and peace happened for myself and the participants. I hope you will join us for one of the upcoming Doctor Of The Soul group events. If you are unable to attend the group events, know that I am developing online programs with the content of these soul healing workshops so everyone will have access to them going forward.
The next group event will be on Sat. Dec. 3rd, 3:30-5 pm. This will be the first of a series of seven on Healing with Mantra. I have been studying Mantra for many years, and I’m very eager to share the healing power of this tradition. This mantra practice is ancient, we will be using the Sanskrit language. Like St. Hildegard’s Music it is also based on spiritual vibration for healing. I am so grateful for Russil & Asha Paul and their Yogic Mystery School. I have been a student in the school since 2011 and their teachings have become a huge part of my life. Click here to purchase tickets online for $29. (Tickets will be $45 at the door on the day of the event.)
Finally, I’m grateful for you! I hope to connect with each of you in person during the upcoming months and in the interim, keep enjoying these newsletters. To show my appreciation for you I would like to share a meditation audio recording David and I recently created. It is a full body relaxation with a Bach arrangement. I love this piece by Bach and have been playing it since I was twelve years old. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll email you a copy to enjoy.
May Viriditas be ours!
