with ZENPROV, Michael Cosentino (Spoken Word) and Gioia
Gioia (JOY-ah) is a dynamic vocalist and budding musician, charming audiences on ukulele and guitar. Since her move from New Jersey to Sedona almost four years ago, she has entertained at open mics, opened for desert band Sister and the Sun, and plays locally in the multi-instrumentalist duo, Sugar Moon. As a passionate early childhood educator and ukulele enthusiast, she plans on sharing these joys with the verde valley community. Delighting in songs from musical influences such as Aretha Franklin, Bonnie Raitt and Bill Withers, audiences can't help but dance along to the retro, 90's and present day hits she also includes.
Local writer Mike Cosentino has been around a long time and resurfaces from time to time with fresh sets of poems and humorous story telling. His Red Earth Theater productions have included the reading of Angels in America: Millennium Approaches and Interiors production featuring Sorry, Wrong Number. Mike has run workshops and performed poetry all over the Verde Valley for decades.
This unique performance will challenge and inspire Zenprov to new heights of imagination and creativity, as they jump in to connect notable bits of story and musical themes into a one-of-kind, long-form improvised theatrical performance.

Please call/text John Kilis: 719-244-6796.
A classically trained musician and with years of study and research, John has created ‘Energy in Motion’. The program was designed to intuitively bridge the connection from the heart to the mind. When we open our heart and connect it with our mind, we are able to dismantle any blocked energy and let go of what doesn't serve us anymore, allowing peace to flow within.
Energy in Motion includes music from all over the world and rare, therapeutic crystal singing bowls, complimenting each other. John intuitively changes the music as he plays the singing bowls, bringing you into an inner journey while on your healing adventure. During his concerts, John also sends Reiki to each participant. Between the healing bowls, music, and Reiki, you will feel a complete peace of mind, body, heart, and soul.
John's crystal bowls and music stimulate the nerve bundles along the spine, up into the brain stem, and then through the limbic system. The sound from the crystal bowls stimulates the medulla in the brain stem and activates the auditory nerve that connects all the muscles of the body. These signals then flood the brain with mood-lifting chemicals. In addition, the low frequencies cause a relaxation of the tissues and a dilation of blood vessels, as well as an opening of the lymphatic pathways which, in turn, increases the body's ability to heal. Add in Reiki and the healing is quite profound!
