“We cannot do all the good that the world needs, but the world needs all the good that we can do.” -Jana Stanfield
Health is “tuned up” and that you can “play in tune” with others is not just a skillset but a necessity for a lifelong musician who is also the cofounder, with Scott Friedman, of Together We Can Change The World.
Being able to teach these skills, and practice them daily, is essential when Together We Can Change brings teams of volunteers to Cambodia, Thailand, Myanmar, Malaysia, or the Philippines.
Jana’s international presentations are filled with hope, humor and music that is best described as “Heavy MEN-tal” or “psychotherapy you can dance to.”
