Salvador, Bahia, Is a Land of Joy Bringers

All my Brazilian friends told me that if I had not been to Bahia, Brazil, I had not seen the true Brazil. They went on to describe the joyful vibrancy of the art, music, dance, food and people that make Bahia so special. I had to get to Bahia!

So, four invitations later I finally made it to Salvador, Bahia with my friend Lara and her family. It turned my world inside out. The chapter in Joy Bringers entitled: I Hear a Symphony describes my transformational experience.

Enjoy some of my favorite moments in Bahia.

In honor of Sao Joao Batista (St. John the Baptist) pray for a new love in your life.

It's festival time in Chapada!

This Tree of Life inspires you to move beyond your past pains and live the beauty and joy of your present.

Bahian Fishing Boats...

People travel from all over the world to come to Igreja de Bonfim to offer healing prayers for their loved ones.

Me inside the cavern where I heard the transforming sounds of Divine Music...

On the way to my Last Supper in Bahia. The food was amazing!
