Singer/songwriter Pam Gerrand, has performed across Canada and the U.S. and in Europe. One of her personal highlights was singing More Grace, a song she penned about her sister Grace’s journey through cancer, at the National Arts Center in Canada’s capital.
Pam now has several CDs, and in the last two years she has opened and performed with the likes of Deepak Chopra, Barbara Marx Hubbard, and Byron Katie, But it wasn’t always that way…
Pam spent four years as a member of the Acting Company at the Stratford Festival – unquestionably one of the finest Shakespearian companies in the world. The prestige of being a part of it is immense, and it also provides the one thing performers everywhere long for – some degree of financial security. One of the reasons Pam inspires me so much is that she walked away from all this. Even though she knew the risks involved in launching a career in music – let alone spiritual music – were huge, Pam had the courage to follow the deep spiritual yearning she felt to write her own music, and to sing her own songs.
Pam’s Creative Advice for You….
Creative inspiration, says Pam, comes from surrendering to the vast ocean of the infinite and opening yourself to the “passionate, warming fire of the Holy Spirit”. To find the courage to do this, Pam recommends reading the words of the great creative mystics like Hildegard of Bingen and Rumi. Hildegard refers to the Holy Spirit as a “burning spirit…that resurrects and awakens everything that is”. Rumi cries out, “I want burning!”
Don’t be afraid, Pam says to enter the radiant fire and light of creativity that exists within you. It is the source of resurrection and awakening; it will help you bypass ego and envy and anchor you in the clarity and compassion that is the source of creative inspiration.
