“The Together We Can Change The World” Interactive School Assembly and Family Concert
Award winning songwriter and storyteller and Peak Performance Coach, Mark Shepard uses Drums, Songs and Stories to celebrate the power we all have as individuals to make a positive difference in the world.
This interactive, multicultural school assembly is all about honoring and respecting our differences, accepting each other as we are, building bridges of tolerance, kindness, respect and empathy through music and story as well as discovering the small things we can do every single day to significantly impact the world in a positive, transformational way.
We start with how we interpret the world and what we make things mean in our own internal worlds. Then we explore ways we can appreciate and accept they others may be interpreting our words and actions.
Ultimately we challenge each other to “Change your Mind and Change your life, set said the fear and strife… together we can change the world…”
As a Master Practitioner and Trainer of Neuro Linguistics since 2003, Mark has assisted thousands of people to get relief from anxiety, eliminate negative habits and addictions as well as increase the peak performance of athletes, executives, artists and performers in a wide range of disciplines.
The program features songs as sell as humorous and inspiring stories about real people making a real difference in the lives of their local communities as well as around the globe.
Together We Can Change The World
Originally inspired by the work of an “social entrepreneur” Ginny Dye who went into business specifically to support the HIV orphans in Uganda, and then included in the musical, “Letters To Daddy”, this song was honored with a “Posi Award” in 2014 and is being sung all over the world by school choruses, girl scouts and other organizations working to make the world a better place.
Be The Change
This song was inspired by the “crazy dream” of single mom Bethany Gonyea to create a 10 year long “peace project” that would statistically prove the power of minds united in focused meditation or mindfulness for the purpose of lowering crime in downtown Albany NY.
One of the guiding thoughts of the Albany Peace Project is Mahatma Gandhi’s famous statement “Be the change you want to see in the world”. Perhaps NOT so “crazy” after all!
Schools all over the country are incorporating “mindfulness” and “meditation moments” with the school day and are discovering significant improvements in behavior and learning.
The beauty and wonder of this program is that it is always changing and evolving, which keeps it fresh and innovative as well as something that many schools may want to have return from year to year…
