Dowsing For Enlightenment!

Here is the recording of the talk I gave on Dowsing for Enlightenment (details below).

And I have a REQUEST: please scroll down to bottom of page and leave your comments/feedback below on your experience of the sounds/singing that I shared live that day, and/or the talk itself – I’d love to include your feedback on my site. Thank you! And have a beautiful day! … Clare

(remember, scroll down for comments box or click on ‘leave a comment’ above!… A good question to ask yourself if wondering what to write “what did I experience when Clare sang? What did I learn, or revisit, when I listened to Clare talk?”)

Wells Cathedral – mixing environment with spirit

I lived in UK for about three years – a return home – and was living in Somerset amongst many sacred sites; natural and man-made. On this occasion I had the opportunity to sing in the Chapter House of Wells Cathedral. The ambience is much like that of Grace Cathedral – tall echoes… spirit reaching up towards the sacred.
