Soul Power

While in Medellin, Colombia, I was fortunate enough to be guided by Jontre Romaropocol, Founder and Executive Director of Raiz Felis, (Happy Roots in English) a nonprofit organization in Medellin that expands human potential by cultivating creativity, compassion, self-awareness, social awareness through the arts. Here is what Jontre has to say about the power of the arts:

“The power of art is that it can communicate with others in different ways; not only by words, but through melodies, through body language. When someone dances, you can really imagine something different. That’s what other professions cannot do. Those professions, other than arts are important, but arts are more sensible. You can connect with people on another level, like a soul level.”
