SongpodsTo Peace in a Pod! Profits From The Sales of SongPods To Benefit Native and Nature Projects

Las Vegas, NV (RushPRnews) 02/26/09-When the Native American Inventor of SongPods first turned her torch to metal, she had no idea she was making history. For the past quarter century these small hand-held self-playing musical instruments have carried her vision of “Peace with Earth” to all seven continents.

The SongPods website lists the little metal miracles’ journeys – from clinics founded by Mother Theresa, to Walk-Abouts in Australia, urban Hospitals and numerous Hospices.

SongPods recently “stirred the peace” at the Sundance Film Festival (Image to the right: Click to enlarge -Stars enjoying their songspod at Sundance Film Festival 2009) in Park City Utah. For their second consecutive year, a “Treasure Hunt” to find the hidden SongPod was held complete with pictures and clues posted around town and on the official website www.SongPods.com.

Earlier, SongPods took the American Music Therapy Association (AMTA) Conference by peaceful storm, as 

thousands of Music Therapists, Private Practitioners, Music Educators and Students shared the mysterious instruments’ melodious enchantment.
One veteran public school therapist commented, “It’s exciting to have a musical instrument no one can break! The more the most energetic child throws it around – the more the SongPod just keeps singing!”

The Spiritual Care Collaborative (SCC), an international group of professional organizations representing well over 10,000 spiritual care providers, Chaplains, Pastors, Educators and Researchers gathered this February where SongPods remained their perennial hit! “SongPods are used in Critical Care and Pediatric Units of major hospitals,” commented a SongPod fan at the Spiritual Care Collaborative Summit. “SongPods illicit positive responses from everyone we serve, including children with Autism, burn victims, seriously ill infants, Alzheimer patients…I’ve never met a person who refused the quiet pleasure and comfort offered by a SongPod!”

Support groups for families with Autistic children and young adults are quick converts to SongPods. One mother and support group organizer summed it up, “Using SongPods every day guarantees my family twenty minutes of connection, communication, smiles and cooperation…I wouldn’t trade them for any other tool or technique! They are a godsend!”

Galleries and Catalogs offer SongPods to savvy art and craft collectors. SongPods also appear on more than one recording artist’s CD. Flordemayo, one of the respected “traveling 13 Indigenous Grandmothers,” has gifted SongPods to dignitaries around the world. Her recent CD features a showering rush of SongPod music!

Massage Therapists in private practice and at spas delight their clients with a “SongPod bath” by shaking the tear-drop shaped instruments over the prone body, then clacking two of the crystal-filled metal music makers together and placing them along the “meridian points” or in the waiting palms of their happy clients.

SongPods are unbreakable and their inventor offers two promises with each custom made instrument: SongPods come with a “three-count’em-three lifetime warranty to not stop singing! And, of course, your bliss is guaranteed!” In 25 years of welding SongPods, less than 6 have been returned, and then, it was for an exchange not a refund. “Apparently I missed on their bliss the first try,” the torch-carrying welder smiled. “Second try was the charm!”Earth Cinema Circle

Each SongPod is custom made which also allows for a fragment or shard or ashes meaningful to the person to be included along with the three hours of intricate welding inside every Pod. Members of the National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA) have referred clients to www.SongPods.com as a means of preserving cremated remains in SongPods. “One of the most heart-touching was the peace SongPods brought to a family of five adult siblings, each wanting to take their Mom’s ashes home with them. By placing just a whisper of their beloved Mother’s ashes in each SongPod, they each not only got their wish, but the music emanating from their SongPods reminds them to this day that their Mother’s enduring wish was for them to all get along in harmony and respect.”

Profits from the sales of SongPods benefit Native and Nature Projects including the preservation and protection of endangered plants and animals. The SongPods’ Motto reflects their ongoing vision: “Peace on Earth must include Peace with Earth. SongPods provide a universal pause for an unexpected smile, a moment of delight, a reminder that peace is possible, and is in your own hands.”
