CIRCLE of LOVE

Descanso y Consuelo / Music for Palliative Care

Many Rivers, One Ocean

Circle of Love produced Many Rivers, One Ocean in 2000 to offer a multicultural presentation about the variety of traditions regarding death, dying, grief and loss in northern New Mexico.  Six storytellers and musicians shared their personal experiences in an hour-long performance that was presented at six venues throughout northern and central New Mexico. The performers were:  Paulette Atencio, Peter Garcia, Donna House, Gerdy Sanchez, Judith Shotwell, and Cipriano Vigil.

This project was funded in part by The Los Alamos Medical Center, The Los Alamos National Laboratory Foundation, The McCune Charitable Foundation, New Mexico Arts, a division of the Office of Cultural Affairs, Brewer Larkin and Lee Funeral Homes, and the generous donations of many individuals.
