More about the poet
Risa Kaparo, poet, dancer, and the grand prizewinner of the prestigious John Lennon Songwriting Contest will read and perform her poetry from Awaken, her debut poetry and music CD. "There is power in Risa Kaparo's sensual voice, an allure, a beckoning. The voice plays like reflection, like flame on the varied musical deeps laid down by a brilliant ensemble of musicians. "Everyone I touch is god / play us as one instrument / I have yet little experience being all I am / Reveal me to myself." Awaken, her debut CD, calls us to this larger whole, this shimmer and oscillation where bodies and souls become one." —Poetry Flash. She is also the author of Embrace, a book of poetry. As Dr. Risa Kaparo, she created Somatic Learning, a methodology of wellness integrating psychology, neurology, biology, and meditative disciplines.
