"Meet DreamingBear: Consciousness Is The New Cool"

It is with joy that I introduce you to the voice of The Lovevolution and author of Wild Love: Kissed Into Consciousness, a volume of "songlines" by DreamingBear Baraka Kanaan, this generations poet laureate of the heart. I first experienced his transmission when going to hear Ram Dass speak at his annual Thanksgiving satsang on Maui. On stage DreamingBear is backed by Spirit Moves, an eight-piece ensemble of musicians and vocalists who conjure impromptu world-fusion soundscapes. The music is completely unrehearsed, and each musician intuitively plays in paralleled union.
The traveling concert experience called Lovevolution is a captivation synthesis of interactive audience singing, group dance, spoken-word artistry, and a variety of multimedia environments that invite the participants into internal states of ecstasy and play. Part social experiment, the Lovevolution's focus is on inspiring individual re-enchantment through the celebratory marriage of metamusic and new-paradigm language delivered with extraordinary verbal dexterity. DreamingBear's verse articulates that being conscious is the new cool. What better message for a generation seeking expansion through experience? This is not poetry as usual. Each concert with a brief ceremonial honoring of the women who are present, in which DreamingBear invites the men to verbally aknowledge the feminine energy in a kind of apology for the past and proposal for the future.
The roles are the reversed, and statements of appreciation, empowerment, and respect are sung back and fourth. Later in the concert, there's even a musical interlude dedicated to "intespecies communication", as DreamingBear calls it, involving an emotionally evocative event known as "heart-storming", wherein audience members are encouraged to reconnect with music as the soul of the universe. They are guided in a feeling of connection with nature and personal empathy with our extended earth family. "Your heart is this world's best natural resource for clean renewable energy", says DreamingBear, and if you'd like to experince a combination of Spaulding Gray, Rumi, Jack Kerouac, Robin Williams, Shel Silverstein, Jim Morrison, and Thich Nhat Hanh, the you owe it to yourself to see DreamingBear.
His vision is fully worthy of our cosmic status as spiritual beings in human form. DreamingBear can uplift the human race into human grace, or as the band's song can attest, "The sky is not the limit, and if we can dream, it we can be it!" - Common Ground Magazine

DreamingBear has traveled the world extensively, speaking before audiences as diverse as international dignitaries, corporate groups, and third world refugees as well as the popular music festivals such as The Harmony Festival, Bhakti Fest, Raw Spirit Festival and alike. He has shared the stage with Lauren Hill, Reverend Michael Beckwith, Dr. Masaru Emoto, Don Miguel Ruiz, Ram Dass, Here II Here and other luminaries committed to inspire the world. DreamingBear is a frequent guest in the media and was recently featured in Common Ground Magazine as well as on the cover of Awareness Magazine. In addition to being recognized as one of the top artists of 2010 by The Artists Forum, he was also featured in Without Walls, a documentary on peace in the Middle East.



A true spoken word genius, DreamingBear is this generation's poet laureate of the heart. DreamingBear is a master of metaphor; "each molecule-mantra" tenderly kissing the soul's "supernova of senses.” When you hear his words, be prepared to be awakened and transported to the "naked tenderness of truth” and the laughter and playfulness of "holy amorous mischief."

DreamingBear's spiritual DNA is powerful. A prodigy of Native American and Middle Eastern (Lebanese) decent, his ancestry illustrates a similar lineage with some of the worlds most profound poets: Gibran, Rumi, and Hafiz. Reminiscent of
these poetic greats, DreamingBear's understanding of science and spirit as well as his deep attunement to the whispers of nature allow you to see yourself as Lover and Beloved, in universal Oneness.

Through his words we become enlightened, separation becomes an illusion, and a spiritual awakening unfolds. Our layers of identity, stories, victories, and laments to the Self that transcend personality disappear and we discover or our ultimate
identity that is everyone and everything. Far from a state of self-delusion or escapism, this awakening represents the ultimate development of the most valuable qualities of human life: kindness, compassion, freedom, intelligence, and creativity.

Under DreamingBear's love spell, you will be ravished by "subatomic particles having a party" and will be moved to "undress your soul inside our heart's hallway." Together with DreamingBear we can end the emotional ignorance of the past and learn to treat each other and ourselves with greater dignity and understanding. His work deserves a wide and universal audience of not only poetry lovers, but also of life lovers everywhere. His vision is fully worthy of our cosmic status as spiritual beings in human form. DreamingBear will most certainly uplift the human race into human grace, where we can live "the light of a billion suns" and "surrender everything to love" for "tonight we dance!"
