Spirituality, Wellness, Peacebuilding

The voice of an angel . . . 

Kaia shares songs that support wellness, spiritual growth, and oneness of community with a voice that resonates with comfort and encouragement. Her own songs include pieces like “Where the Water Meets the Land” written in response to the grief of losing her husband to cancer and “All the Way” about loving and caring for someone living with a terminal disease. Other songs like, “Will I Grow” and “Life Is So Beautiful” speak to the universal struggles of human existence with hope and wonder. She also shares songs by other artists including “Up to the Mountain (the MLK Jr. Song)” by Patty Griffin, celebrating the enduring promise of the “peaceful valley” and the certainty that we are not alone as we labor to further goodness in this world. Contact Kaia for references and to inquire about scheduling her to provide music for your community.

Testimonials

Kaia was the featured musical guest at a women’s retreat that I hosted this past Spring. She gave an hour-long concert in the living room of a cabin we had rented on the river. The fireplace blazed, the wine circulated, and the intimacy flowed throughout the room. Kaia’s ethereal voice and her tender heart infuse her songs. She evoked laughter and tears and infused the cabin with the rhythm of healing. She was, indeed, the highlight of the weekend. ~ Mandy Raether, CFLE www.askmsmia.com

Kaia Fowler has been a musical guest at the Unity Spiritual Center of Woodstock and has been warmly received. Her voice is clear and beautiful with her guitar playing providing very nice support. Her original songs are immediately accessible and memorable. We look forward to hearing her again at USCW. ~ Ken Johnson, Music Leader Unity Spiritual Center of Woodstock

Kaia Fowler offered an insightful and inspiring workshop for the parents and later the entire families at both St. Joan of Arc, in Nashotah and St. Catherine of Alexandria parishes in Oconomowoc, WI.  Many commented on Kaia’s ability to weave her own life experiences into stories that invited all to rethink the ordinary and see the extraordinary! Joy and sadness are truly spiritual journeys that Kaia brought to life through her music. As one parishoner said to me, “Her music reminded me God is alive and well in our world.” ~ Mary Sue Reutebuch, Director of Christian Formation: Family and Youth Programs
