Fraser: Storyteller hopes to be catalyst for change
Sky-Hi Daily News
Who knows how big the ripples will be that spread out as India Alar Moon creates an enlightening wave through an adult storytelling event at the Fraser Valley Library this upcoming Thursday, Dec. 6.
Her story is the gift she offers everyone this holiday season, and whether you are religious or not, there is a little bit of something for everyone to take home after hearing it. On that day, Moon will share many insights as the featured storyteller for her debut performance at the library. In addition to an overview of her vast talents, Moon will be presenting her creation story “And God So Loved the World” during the program.
“And God so loved the world, that he said let there be light. And then he said let there be laughter and the laughter washed over Mother Earth and created the rivers.”
“And so the story goes,” Moon said with a smile, adding that it’s not the story of the creation of man. “It’s a story of the creation of the beginning, and man is just part of that.”
Her warmth and gentle approach are somewhat misleading because she is full of a passion. She admits that she went through “a gnarly learning curve” to get where she is today. When faced with one of life’s many obstacles years ago, Moon had opened up herself and let God know she was ready to accept his plan for her.
“Little did I know what I was ready for,” she said.
But God moved her and touched her heart and now she is a catalyst for change. She is a “woman of movement, a woman who brings magic into the lives of the people she touches,” according to her Web site. It continues to say that this “movement” is about “initiating a change in the direction of the movement that the world is going, beginning one person at a time, beginning with one’s self. This is achieved through a variety of media through which (she) communicates: Words, images, sounds, music, dance and more.”
Moon, who has been a Grand County resident since 1995, is a licensed contractor, an artist, published writer, extreme athlete, personal trainer, herbalist and has been an ordained minister for almost two decades. Her talents also expand into Spiritual Response Therapy and spiritual restructuring.
Along with “other surprises” that await audiences at the library, Moon is planning to share these two newest healing techniques.
Spiritual Response Therapy is a healing method that works at the level of one’s soul, Moon said. Developed by Robert E. Detzler, it releases “discordant programs within your subconscious mind and your soul’s records which cover thousands of lifetimes.” Spiritual restructuring works with all the systems of the body “to adjust and heal, and to bring into balance the vibrations of the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual aspects of your being.” Moon said the two healing techniques work hand-in-hand with each other, providing the clients with “a comprehensive clearing and rejuvenation on all levels.”
Her first published book, “She Who Remembers,” will be also available at the library program.
As for her story on Thursday night, Moon said she’s a little nervous, but she knows that “God’s hands will be on me because I’m not doing this for myself.”
The Thursday event will also feature music accompaniment with “Slava” on percussion and expert flutist, Miguel Medina, who joined Native American Amaurante Montez during his children’s storytelling performance at the library just a couple weeks ago.
“It’s going to be interesting,” she promises.
