The Dream Brothers' songs are passionate, fearlessly open-hearted, contemporary anthems and art songs with a unique visionary focus. We are singer/songwriters proud to be part of the ancient troubadour traditions integrating heart, sexuality, spirituality, and art. We are also, as a team, practitioners of a healing art Thomas Moore and many Jungians call “care of the soul.” In our case, in addition to private counseling practices, we train and facilitate group work as relational somatic practitioners. We see our music, our writing, our service to others, our retreats, our friendships, our home, all as opportunities to practice the art of life, grounded in caring for the Earth and All Our Relations, treating others with the reverence of soul to soul.
If you've heard of the Dream Brothers' you know about their settings of the poems of Walt Whitman to their unique music. Listen to these as you read his marvelous words, and hear his message come alive. Written around 1859, these visionary poems are amazingly relevant today, expressing Whitman’s honoring of the physical body as indistinguishable from spiritual joy. These are --still and again!-- anthems for a new, hopeful century.
AND ! They've just released a new album called "Songs of The Scrolls of Nef" which is their settings of the poetry from the novel "The Scrolls of Nef" by Gary Glickman. The music is available on this website, the book is available in Kindle as well as in iBooks format and in good ol' print, too! Check out www.scrollsofnef.com.
