Sarah Knapp is a musician, healer, and traveler who moved home to San Diego three years ago to care for her father who is suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. In caring for him and others at the end of their life, she uses music therapy and an innate love of elder wisdom to bring exquisite calm and peace. “No matter how disoriented he is, music always works. When I put on his favorite songs, he relaxes. He feels safe; he becomes present.” Sarah founded the San Diego chapter of the Resistance Revival Chorus and the community gathering place One House Community Center. She holds regular community events including Death Cafe and trauma informed yoga. In this conversation we talk about her dad’s return to his divine boyhood, the exquisite beauty of the dying process, grief ceremonies, the medicine of Gaia’s playground, and what she’s learned about how to live. Find her beautiful offerings at sarahknappmusic.com, and on instagram: @everythingtrueisfree.
