Singer-songwriter Gabrielle Louise believes that there are 2 types of stories that make us who we are: “the stories we are told about ourselves and the world” (archetype) and “the stories we tell about ourselves and the world” (autobiography). The problem is that many of us tend to let the stories we are told by others define us and are afraid to reflect upon and express our own unique, original stories of ourselves. In this way, we are losing sight of ourselves and our potential. Gabrielle proposes that it is critical to make time to both “inhale” what others tell us and mindfully “exhale” our own creative impressions of those stories for a “full breath of experience” and wholeness in life.
Gabrielle Louise is a nationally touring troubadour noted for her poignant lyrics and lush voice. The daughter of two vagabond musicians, Gabrielle inherited the genetic predisposition to wanderlust and song. Gabrielle Louise’s music is anchored deeply in folk, but undeniably drawn to rich harmonies and melodic adventurism. http://www.gabriellelouise.com/
