Expanded Heart Full Moon World Healing Ceremony.

Spiritual Unity Movement -- "Saving Our Planet From The Inside." We meditate Locally to Transform Globally and we invite you to join us. For the Chinese, this is the year of the Fire Rooster. For SUM this is the year of the Grateful Heart. 

To begin this amazing year of change, we have invited back our dear friend Freebo-whose loving kindness demonstrates magnificently, that he is the perfect speaker for February, the month of love. 

"Listening to Freebo is like riding on a cumulus cloud of peaceful awareness, a cosmic blend of folk/country/rock/soul ear-pleasing genre-defying music." (Walt Falconer, Cool Album Of The Day)

award winning singer/songwriter, Freebo’s music touches your heart with songs of life, love, dogs, and the human condition. He is well regarded for his high level of musicality coupled with his thoughtful and powerful use of words in song lyrics as well as in prose and narrative.

"Freebo's intimate and go-down-easy personable vocals tie in light-hearted fare, social commentary and spiritual quest with love-sweet-love, and make it sound seamless." (Janet Goodman, Music News Nashville)

"Listening to Freebo is like riding on a cumulus cloud of peaceful awareness, a cosmic blend of folk/country/rock/soul ear-pleasing genre-defying music." (Walt Falconer, Cool Album Of The Day)

"'Freebo sounds as if he's not really singing to you; he's talking to you. One of the best albums of the year." (John Shelton Ivany, jsitop21.com)

As a teacher, his message goes straight to the heart.

Paul Zollo, of Songwriters On Songwriting, writes: "Freebo is more than one of LA's best players, he's also a richly gifted and distinctive songwriter; as expressive in his writing as on a bass".

A world-renowned bassist and tuba player (Bonnie Raitt, 10 years, CSN, John Mayall, Maria Muldaur, Ringo Starr, Dr. John, Neil Young, Loudon Wainwright), he has appeared on Saturday Night Live, Midnight Special, Muppets Tonight, in concert with the legendary Spinal Tap, and in recent years has evolved into an award winning singer/songwriter, teacher, producer, and keynote speaker.

 In his own words…

“I framed myself as a bass player and it seemed like it was enough until I realized and felt there was a certain sense of frustration going on in me,” Freebo said. “It’s what I call my personal GPS—I have song about it. It’s my intuition, and that deepest part of me was screaming out to be heard. It wasn’t about face time or stage time—I had plenty of that. It was really my creative child screaming to get out.”

He’s been touring as a singer-songwriter for the past 15 years and has also developed a career as an inspirational speaker, tying in songs from his record “Something to Believe” (which includes the song “Personal GPS”) with his own story, hoping to connect with audiences and help them reach their own goals.

“I no longer have that sense of frustration because I am speaking my voice fully. I’m being seen and heard for the person I think I am,” he said. “When I go back and play the bass, I love it more than ever and I’m probably a better player than ever because I’m not attached to it.”
