There is a spirit that pervades everything, that is capable of powerful song and radiant movement, and that moves in and out of the mind. The colors of this spirit are multitudinous, a glowing, pulsing rainbow.
PAULA GUNN ALLEN

Snack or dine, sip coffee or wine, and join in the exploration of rhythm and poetry as we gather together around This Stage.
This Stage is an Embassy, and we are all Strangers in a Strange Land. Each of us walked a different road to get here, and now, we are safe.
This Stage is a Youth Hostel and we are all Travelers. We speak different languages, know different customs and tell many different tales. This Stage is a Mountaintop. No body owns This Stage.
