"I walked into the Sisters Singing opening
event, unfamiliar with Carolyn Brigit Flynn
and the incredible creativity her teaching evokes.
I was blown away by the magic and power
that vibrated through every bit of that evening.
I cried, I laughed, I was touched at my core.
I'd been in a writing doldrums and I walked
away full of words, inspired to write. I am
thrilled that this amazing event is available
on DVD. Now, you too, can be deeply moved
by the artwork, the music, the poetry, the
stories and the singing. This film will touch

Speak Again and co-author of The Courage to Heal
"It was a truly magical evening. Music and
poetry seemed to rain down from the heavens
and fill the room. Alysia Tromblay’s music
was exquisite. The art, the poetry, the singing...
no one in the huge crowd wanted to leave!
It is a real treasure that this beautiful evening
has been preserved on film.”
