Michael Franti and Spearhead
Once A Day’ is about unexpected moments in life. Some days we have unexpectedly beautiful moments and others that are unexpectedly challenging. Last year I had a really challenging moment when my son was diagnosed with a kidney disease called FSGS (Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis). We thought it would break our family apart, but moving through the initial tears, made us realize life is precious and that we need to hug, kiss and be close to each other every day and through that we could ‘rise up’ and face his illness together. I hope that Once A Day brings inspiration to anyone in this world who is going through challenging times. Through music, dance and gratitude for this life we can all ‘Rise Up’!”

"There's a billion miles of wilderness between the head and the feet of any given person. That's why I dance.... to explore the wilderness."

Moving for the joy of movement is principle #1 in the Nia White Belt practice. I have loved to move and dance all of my life—only recently has this passionate part of me awoken. I remember grooving in the grocery store line with my Mom, and she said to me quietly, “Stop that.” Acts of pure joy were not well embraced in my family.
But I couldn’t forget about that love, a deep love inside me. When I first danced Nia, I was struck by the joy of movement, sensations in my body that the little girl Mary Lee knew long ago. It had so much depth. This music was so much fun. I felt so good when I did it. And some of the key phrases lit me up: through movement we find health. Nia is a dynamic practice that helps me live more fully who I am.
