Global Kindness Revolution - Judith Trustone, FounderRising from the ashes after a terrible auto accident, we’re getting “back on the horse,” so to speak.

Stay tuned for some upcoming creations! My new training video, “Train Your Mind To Be Kind All The Time: the Global Kindness Revolution,” will be available in September on YouTube (and CD and MP4), for those of you interested in creating Kindness Circles with your organization, church, synagogue or mosque, or just with some family or friends.

The DVD will provide a basic structure that has been working well for the past six years since I started this endeavor with people in prison, Lifers, Inc. You may use your own words for this organizing structure.

Sagewriters’ Music Director is in Spirit

Byard Lancaster, a Warrior with a Horn
August 6, 1942 – August 23, 2012

Sagewriters is sad at the passing of our dedicated Music Director and Jazz legend, Byard Lancaster.

Byard’s dedication to our work, his commitment to encouraging young musicians and writers – especially those “at risk” – and his ability to connect people around the world, leaves a hole that can never be filled.

A talent recognized globally, Byard entertained from Philly to Chicago to Jamaica to Paris, Mexico, Brazil, Nigeria, Guinea Montreal, and anywhere that jazz was performed. Continue reading
