Spirit Found Us

Words by David Schiffman, music by Lisa G.

David wrote these words as a poem during my first month at Esalen in 2005, inspired by our month-long workscholar group there. I set them to music one afternoon soaking in the hot springs at Tassajara Zen Center.

Spirit Found Us Lyrics

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