Send Chelsea to Sound Healing School!

Chelsea MacMillan embodies what it means to be of service on this planet. She is constantly giving of her time, talents, and treasures with optimism and unbridled joy, and she asks for little in return. For her birthday this year, I'm hoping to raise enough money to fund her next step, taking part in The Sound and Music Institute: Integrative Sound & Music Practitioner Training through The Open Center in New York City. (

Chelsea is currently bravely living the life of an activist for peace in NYC. Here are a few of the amazing things she is doing right now:
-studying at One Spirit, an interfaith seminary program, to become an ordained Reverand and scholar of all religions
-vounteering at the Reciprocity Foundation teaching kids about meditation, reiki, and holistic health
-hosting compliment and meditation stations throughout the city
-creating and hosting grassroots interfaith celebrations
-planning a program for Kids4Peace, bringing together youth of the Middle East and the US
-planning a workshop on Vocal Expression to teach at The Omega Institute this August
-singing on the subways of NYC to spread joy and love
-she even composts regularly (which, for anyone living in the city, you know how much extra effort that takes)!  
All the while she is waiting tables in the middle of Times Square to sustain the high cost of city life. 

Chelsea's life is a prayer for love, for consciousness, for authenticity, and for the healing and transfomration of the universe into oneness. Let's give her another tool for her toolbox of healing by sending her to The Open Center this year! 

Anything you can contribute would be amazingly appreciated :)
