18 Feb Spirit Found Us

Upon my first month spent as a work scholar at Esalen Institute in 2005, our gifted group leader David Schiffman was inspired to write and share this short poem with us. A few years later I put it to music and began sharing it in groups. I shared the song with David before he passed away and sang it at his memorial. Since that time this song has been traveling far and wide, a healing song of potent simplicity. ~Lisa

This song is versitile – hymn-like, march-like and easy to learn.

Lyrics

In desperation we found freedom,
In freedom we found love,
In love we found devotion,
In devotion, spirit found us.
