Ernest Song asks if it possible to recognize how hardened we have become to the sacred quality of all things – and how this has affected our ideas about love and life. Can an earnest song, through the channel of breath, reveal the thread of spiritual essence that connects us to everything? We are petrified – hardened and afraid – of this connection. In seeking his own journey back, Ernest Song offers an invitation to a deeper definition of love, joy and longing.
