Tuesday October 25 - Michelle Adam
The famous poet Federico Garcia Lorca once gave an unforgettable speech on the word "duende," describing it as the "spirit of the earth" that "one must awaken in the remotest mansions of the blood."
This word also means "ghost, goblin, or nature spirit" -- Latin American parents warn their children that duendes may be kidnap them and take them to another world below the river!
Duende is the premise of Michelle Adam's recent novel, Child of Duende: A Journey of the Spirit. She will join us in 'spooky' October to share this spirit of duende, in addition to passages of her novel, her personal journey with duende, and possibilities of embodying this spirit/energy/essence in our own creative journey.
Raised in Switzerland, Spain, and the United States, Michelle Adam is a writer, teacher, and healer. A magazine writer for more than 20 years, she has taught Spanish in schools for 12 years, and has led healing and teaching circles of song and sound in New Mexico. Throughout her work, she is committed to helping others awaken the spirit of the earth, duende, within them, while creating a space for the celebration of life.
