Top Ten

This past year we had the great fortune to work with so many beautiful people who created an amazingly electic body of work. There were so many good stories it was almost impossible to narrow it down. But as we begin a new year, we want to share ten of our 2014 favorites with you. These stories -- and many others -- are available for viewing on our YouTube channel. Many can be downloaded as Podcasts from our new SoundCloud channel. Subscribe to both and don't miss a thing. Enjoy!

Click HERE to buy tickets to The Portland Blind Cafe

The Portland Blind Cafe, is a ‘pop-up event’, a mind bending / heart opening experience where the audience indulges in a vegetarian ‘Sensory Tasting Experience' prepared by a local Chef,  participates in a Q & A with their blind wait staff and enjoys a concert of original music…all in the pitch dark. This is NOT just another dinner in the dark…it’s a community experience where people connect, learn and grow from working together to participate in something greater than themselves. The Portland Blind Cafe is designed to help you feel more alive, awake, present and connected to your world. We partner with the local blind organizations to raise awareness and benefit the local blind community.
