(IncLuding ourselves!)

The documentary film "Alive Inside" changed how we see elders living with Alzheimer's Dementia.
Now, in them, we see a profound emotional "Aliveness."  We learned how Music and Human connection can awaken and transform lives! 

Sharing Music, Art, and Human Connection is part of our hard-wiring and is designed to bring us together.  In our culture, we need their wisdom more than ever.  Loneliness is epidemic and empathy is decreasing.  This must be reversed- we can heal this 'hole' in our hearts,
Help us ignite an "Empathy Revolution," transform eldercare, youth education, and our future.  


Join the Movement!
