About the event

Update: Due to illness, The Half-White Band will not be able to attend. Cynthia Sylvester will read an excerpt from her rich and heart-felt collection of Albuquerque based stories, well worth experiencing! Tifani Vincent will also bless us with a Sound Bath.

We at TogetherSource have  committed to cultivating community in balance (aka,while getting plenty of rest) as our 2024 New Year’s resolution.

In keeping with our resolution we have decided to  provide you a totally magical extravaganza of healing experiences, and a  touching live performance ending early enough to head to off to bed or  go out to another fantastic late night party and we are doing this as a  gift to the community.

Please join us for this free event starting at 4pm. We will have snacks and we welcome potluck items from you if you would like.

You will enter into a beautiful space and be ushered to  enjoy some tea and Intuitive infusions for the new year. A handful of  people in our collective will gift you readings and healings, thought  provoking games and uplifting connections. Then around 5pm Cynthia  Sylvester and the Half White Band will perform The Half-White Album, a  fabulous performance of story telling interwoven with live music from  the 60s and 70s performed by local musicians.

After the performance there will be more more magical mingling.

About the author:

Cynthia Sylvester is born into the Kiyaa’áanii Clan for the Bilagáana Clan and is an enrolled member of the Diné. She is a native of Albuquerque, New Mexico. She is the host of Albuquerque DimeStories—3-Minute stories written and read by the author. Her debut book The Half-White Album, is published by the University of New Mexico Press as part of the Lynn and Lynda Miller Southwest Fiction Series. The Half-White Album is the winner of the best LGBTQ+ book in the 2023 New Mexico-Arizona Book Awards. The Half-White Album is humorous, heartbreaking, and rooted in the high desert of the Southwest. This powerful debut collection is an experience told through story and music. Sylvester gives readers a poignant view of the path her characters travel between the secular and the spiritual, between the traditional and the contemporary, between worlds lost and the ones they find themselves in.
