Shy-Anne The Awakening – Vision to Speech to Song
[sws_pullquote_right]We are witnessing an awakening that is being influenced by the Spirit and by Nature itself. Nature has been waiting for this moment, for us to come together and become unified, in our unique and distinctive ways, which represent the whole of the human family. When we put ourselves in order, then the universe and the Earth will naturally set things in order. The people are demanding a change. We must seize on this great opportunity for change and for peace, which will be supported by the Spirit and the forces of Nature working in alliance with us. [/sws_pullquote_right]
The message in the vision, the speech and the song is one of coming together. It’s time.
Elder Dave Courchene is a mentor to Shy-Anne. The singer has brought her mentor to Thunder Bay to share with youth at “For the Love of Life”.
