Welcome to Guiding Song!
Guiding Song is the creative work of Marieke Slovin Lewis. Marieke is a folk musician, writer, yogi, and editor. She uses a method of songwriting called Story-to-Song (STS) to guide people from around the world through the process of shaping their stories into songs. STS has its roots in the oral folk music tradition of writing songs from stories. It is a collaborative process, which creates opportunities for empathy, connection, and empowerment.
