8:00 Pauline LeBel - Science Wisdom for the Future

Phone: 604-947-0907

Bio: Pauline Le Bel is an award-winning novelist, screenwriter and singer. She was described as “a musical instrument linked to a soul” for her electrifying portrayal of French singer, Edith Piaf, in a play she co-wrote and toured. She received an Emmy-nomination and a Cable ACE Award for The Song Spinner, her family drama about the transformative power of music, and has released five CDs of original songs.

Her newest CD, Deep Fun: Songs about Science, Food and Sex is her first album of amusing songs. After 4 CDs of mostly heartbreaking songs, it was time to burst out laughing. And laugh she does with a torch song about friendly bacteria; a sexy song about Darwin’s theory of evolution; as well as songs inspired by garlic, spices, Carl Jung, Marlene Dietrich, and a tender song about kissing.

Pauline lives on a small island off Canada’s west coast. She believes in the power of music and story to transform our lives. Her blog focuses on the integration of music, science, nature and spirit.

Topic: Science, Wisdom, and the Future: Humanity's Quest for a Flourishing Earth

Pauline Le Bel has contributed 2 presentations and 3 chapters to two of CFP’s three Humanity’s Conference and Book Series:

The Evolutionary Epic: Science’s Story and Humanity’s Response (2009)
“Bringing the Universe Story Home: Engaged Cosmology and the Role of the Artist”
Quote: “ I envisioned a deeper role for the theatre, one that echoed back to its ancient roots as a vehicle for catharsis and discovery. Each story I wrote was its own vivid world, with its own intelligence and wisdom.”

Science, Wisdom, and the Future: Humanity’s Quest for a Flourishing Earth (2012)
“The Science of Song”
Quote: “One of the great mysteries about music is that it does not exist outside the brain. The brain itself creates the sounds we think we hear as music.

“Sing Two Songs and Call Me in the Morning: Science and the Healing Power of Music”
Quote: Song has been used throughout the ages to unite people, to teach the young, to give strength, to offer hope and create zest and stamina during difficult times. Singing is the one art that is transportable, sustainable, and absolutely free.

Pauline and Cheryl Genet, the Managing Editor of the Collins Foundation Press, are working on a book to be published by CFP in 2013 called Becoming Intimate with the Earth.

PS: Pauline would be delighted to email mp3s of her songs to David. Regular mail would not get there in time. However, if David would like any of her CDs, just let her know and she would be happy to send them along. email address: songspinner@shaw.ca
