Music Ministry

Welcome to Universal Spirit Center 

Music  fills our souls, inspires us to fly and creates a world  that  works for all. I am glad to share incredible music from our music team and a loving choir. As music director I have the pleasure of working with talented musicians, artist and singers. It is our joy to explore Divine connection through energy and sound. I have been blessed to travel and tour sharing my gifts with all. 

I am now Home, join us as we expand. Come dine in music with us two Sunday Gatherings and once on Wednesday.

 

Feel the power of our choir and experience the musical consciousness of our guest artist. We welcome new singers/speakers  & facilitators to contact us.

Linda Ele, piano

Over the years that Linda has played piano at Universal Spirit Center, she has heard many, many people say that when they first came through the door, they knew Universal Spirit Center was special and they had found their spiritual home. Linda says she feels that same way, starting on her first Sunday playing piano here and all the Sundays since!  Although Linda has “tickled the ivories” for many years playing solo piano and with other bands, playing at Universal Spirit Center has been the most meaningful for her.  She says, “It’s an honor for my music to be part of the process for the spiritual experiences that people have at Universal Spirit Center.”
