Making the Heart Whole Again: Stories for a Wounde
2007 GRAMMY Nomination Best Spoken Word Album for Children 'These stories of tolerance, conflict resolution, justice and reconciliation are meant to be sown in households, neighborhoods and communities. Let us nurture the fallow field of peace and grow a lush and diverse garden of interdependence together.' - Milbre Burch. Aimed at listeners six and up, 'Making the Heart Whole Again: Stories for a Wounded World' features both international folktales and personal stories promoting peace, justice, and reconciliation. Several of the stories on the CD are adapted from Peace Tales: World Folktales to Talk About and Earth Care: World Folktales to Talk About, both edited by Margaret Read MacDonald and published by August House Publishers. One is based on a folktale in Tales of Afghanistan by Amina Shah, published by Octagon Press. The CD debuted at Burch's all-day pre-conference for the Healing Stories Alliance at the 2007 National Storytelling Conference in St. Louis. This GRAMMY-nominated album of peace tales is Burch's thirteenth solo recording released on her own Kind Crone Productions label. 'The whole recording is full of grace and filled me with tears and hope. As always your telling is perfect! Thank you. I can't wait for my kids to return from camp so they can hear it too! They've been raised on your voice...' - Noa Baum.
