I AM SO grateful that you would join me here for a moment of your precious time! Thank you for taking the time to stop by.
I AM Heather Grace Powers. I AM a mother, a wife, a musical mystic, a transformational coach, and a purpose-driven community builder. The music I share is often referred to as "medicine music". I am a passionate student of many traditions and philosophies from across the east and west. My husband, Jason Michael Powers and I are co-founders of "The Powers Of Love"... a global movement awakening the powers of divine love. (www.thepowersoflove.com)
I've been singing professionally for 30 years and have written, performed and recorded with many Grammy-winning artists and am currently working on my third album. My work has been on radio, TV, and in feature films. In the last several years, I've had the joy of supporting people in finding their own authentic voice and empowering songwriting and performance through integrative vocal empowerment coaching. "Sing Your Soul Awake" lights me up to witness this process as my students come alive through the power of song and developing a powerful relationship with their own unique sound and life message. This teaching goes far beyond standard voice work as we dive deeply into the beliefs and emotions that can be blocking you from true self-expression, both through song and in everyday life!
In early 2011, my life as I knew it was shattering into what felt like a million pieces. I was clinging to little more than flickering embers of faith amid a shadowy forest of grief and shame from the loss of both my parents (whom I love so dearly), my grandmother, and my marriage, which ended as a result of a messy affair. The relationship I had always known with God, my spiritual community and culture, and having grown up in a pastor's home with an extremely conservative worldview was shaken to its foundations and I began to question everything I knew about God, myself, and the world around me.
For a good portion of my adult life, I struggled with depression, addiction and a deep sense of hopelessness as I didn't feel I truly belonged anywhere, even though I was on stage leading worship and inspiring people through music. Music was truly the only place I ever really felt like I could express what was truly going on in my heart, where it otherwise felt numb and disconnected. Writing and singing were the medicine that soothed my mind and ultimately led to awakening my soul.
By grace, I was brought to a place in my life where I really had to dive deep into my shadows and face the disowned parts of me that were creating experiences that led to such pain and destruction. That turning point in my life, which was really just the beginning of a transformation, led to walking the path of the mystic serving on the path of love and I'm so grateful to walk it with my beloved Jason Michael.
Each day brings a little more awareness of the gift life truly is with ALL its ups and downs. Where the heart is cracked open the sweeter the song that flows freely from that place...
I AM love's voice. A feather upon the breath of God. This is why I came.
