Heart Warrior Project, the service branch of ONEspace Productions:
Inside everything, there is a story. ...
I am... My name is Candace Mareck Younghans. They have begun to call me CanDance I am on a journey to the Heart Warrior - my own and yours. As a living creature, heart warrior, daughter of Mother Earth, human being, performance artist, friend, lover, teacher, student, and soon to be documentary filmmaker, I challenge myself to journey into the heart of the matter, to ask questions directly of the heart, to explore my story, our story - I wonder why we still choose war, but more importantly, why we don't take good care of the men and women and their families - members of our village -who fight those wars for us. I request that we, the people, grow stronger - realize, in practice, that we all are not so different, turn and face those returning from war, embrace them -as they are ourselves- and offer them some respite, a retreat, a safe place and an invitation to lighten their load. I wonder what it will take for our heart warrior selves, for your heart warrior self, for my heart warrior self, to lead the way. And how we, the people, you and me, will create a village that is stronger than war.
I have some ideas. But I'd like to hear yours. What is the story you want to tell about LOVE? about LIFE? about WAR? about PEACE? about VILLAGE?
