Bio short CV



As a Minstrel of Healing & Sacred Storyteller, Jim’s music is his way of touching gently the Heart longing for itself. He believes that the underlying truth within all Mythic cultures is contained in their music, dance & storytelling and that a return to these traditional values will help create a ‘New Mythology’ leading to the healing necessary to prepare mankind for the challenging times ahead. Inspiration for his presentations are inspired from many Ancient Wisdom cultures who infused their stories with an indwelling Spirit gleaned from direct experience. With Music in his Soul, Jim endeavors to touch the Heart of Humanity through Loving service.
