Songlines: Tracking the footprints & heartbeats of your souls calling into a life of memory and belonging through ceremony & ritual.
From the interview...
"Song has always been connected with ritual, connected with ceremony, it holds it together. Without the song, the container of the ceremony, the ritual may fall apart. And so song and sound become this way of holding the sacred space.
We have a particular musician or artist or singer-songwriter or just songs in general that we really gravitate towards and like, it's because they mirror something to us about a part of ourselves that we're longing to connect more deeply with.
The original source of healing was stories, but the original source of stories was sound from the landscape."

"I have known Kedar for a long time as a man of spirit with remarkable devotion to healing. He tends to this duty with royalty and ferocious commitment. As a man who hears the call of Earth and Nature, Kedar extends his hand to those in quest of change and transformation, and is always willing to lead them into and guide them through, a deep sense of communion with themselves. Having worked with him in a number of rituals and ceremonies, and watched carefully the way he gives of himself to spirit, I have come to respect his priestly devotion to the sacred in Nature and in every human. His work deserves respect and reverence." ~Malidoma Some` PhD., World renown author, teacher, initiated elder & West African Shaman
