Humor and dialogue that embrace the irreverent and the reverent as one and the same * Beagles, basset hounds and the unique sentience of various life forms * Aha moments and conversations that bring a glimmer of light to the eyes of those engaged in them * Being softened and broken open by witnessing the most tender acts of kindness * Being swept into the sheer delight of possibly even committing one myself * Being blown away by ideas about IT that dash to stone all previous conceptions * Dark chocolate, toasted walnuts, goat cheese and strikingly succulent food * Creating organizational systems that actually work for me * Authenticity and endeavoring to live unapologetically... and learning to apologize * Teaching voice in a way that transforms people's connection with their bodies and their utilization of internal power (How beautiful to see someone smiling uncontrollably 20 minutes into a first lesson) * Singing harmony with Jan Garrett and JD Martin * Studio harmony work * Supporting others' excellence * Wellness * Shedding layers * The human body * The human spirit * The Divine emergence, infusion, and interplay * The view from an airplane * Walking and living with more courage * Creating in my work and in my life something beautiful, something honest, something of wholeness that is ultimately kind, in the way that is mine to do, for the sake of all

Who is Marcy Baruch? Many have experienced her as a musical artist who infuses live concert spaces and human-yearning places with a "make you want to weep, pray, and make love" voice.
Her song "This Inner Space" won the emPower Music & Arts 2009 Posi Award for the Best Healing Song. In 2008, her bagpipe-driven march, "The Strength Of Love," was a nominee in the Group Chant category. After the release of her 2nd CD, "Clearly," in 2001, she was named among the nation's Top Ten independent female singer/songwriters by Femmusic Magazine.
As someone who delights in touching open worlds within worlds, hers is one where the reverent and the irreverent get along just fine, where soft expanse and the drive for more comprehensive clarity wrestle and commune so that something deeper and higher might evolve. Of her spirit and music, one critic mused, "Marcy Baruch strides confidently through her kick-up-the-dirt songs with steel-toed vocals and a carefree, reckless zest for life. She is more fun than spiked punch at a barn dance... offering many show-stopping, breath-taking, goosebump-raising moments."
It is in service to the moments that take our breath away that Marcy finds her music and life unfolding. For in these moments, something of the Spirit is recognized again. And in the breath that returns, our deeper gifts of love and grace are more clearly revealed.
Marcy is currently celebrating the release of her third CD, "The Strength Of Love."
