Shining Night, telling the story of a man, an island, and music that moves the world. ('a heartening rarity', Wall Street Journal; Winner, Best Documentary, DC Indie Film Festival, Eugene Film Festival, Asheville Cinema Festival; Audience Choice Award, Friday Harbor Film Festival).

In Search of the Great Song- Fifty voices. Twelve countries. One question.
From the Australian Outback to the San Juan Archipelago, from South India to the Swiss Alps, the question is asked of artists, scientists, and traditional elders: "What is the Great Song for you?"

Embrace your relationship with mortality through our landmark audio resource, Graceful Passages: A Companion for Living and Dying, offering messages of inspiration, insight and comfort scored with original music by film composer Gary Malkin. Featuring the spoken voices of Ram Dass, Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, Thich Naht Hahn and others, Graceful Passages helps alleviate fear and supports meaningful conversations.

Reconnect with your inner creative life through our innovative Song Sanctuary seminar. As one-day, weekend, or six-day retreat in an Italian monastery, the program features several methods for reconnecting, including ChantWave (a community singing event), SongSourcing (a creative songmaking method), The Honoring (a musical healing ceremony) and our film series.

Learn to play and share this music through a collection of 108 of Michael's original songs and chants in two volumes: A Treasury of Song and A Treasury of Chant.

Venture further with Michael through one-on-one Skype mentoring sessions exploring guitar, songwriting and bringing your unique gifts to the world as an integral dimension of your spiritual growth. (contact Michael here)

May these programs and resources help you rediscover and enjoy the power of your own, unique song. - Michael
