Get a SNEAK PEEK into the dream

Posted on 17 Comments

Last month, we launched a crowdfunding campaign to help realize Upala’s dream to record a musical album.

In the meantime, Upala’s health has declined further significantly. The intracranial pressure is causing a multitude of function loss, making it challenging for her to bring up the focus to make the original dream a reality.

However, your immense generosity both in energy and financial support has put in motion such a strong field that a new approach has arisen that is actually much more intimate and meaningful than the first version.

The past few weeks, we have been rehearsing in micro doses for a beautiful moment ritual that centers around Upala’s free movement and sound.
This sacred dance ritual will be filmed, and set to music, with the end result shared with you all.

We would like to give you a sneak peek into one of the rehearsal moments. For those having known Upala over the years, this video might come as a ‘heart shock’. 

Aspects of Upala are straddling another realm, far away. Yet, the joy of seeing her come to life through the authentic expression in this rehearsal is truly heart gripping and will stop your breath for a moment.

You can still contribute financially, if you haven’t done so yet. We know many of you tried to donate but couldn’t because there is no option to donate with credit card (an unfortunate turn of events by the platform we chose).
However, as a workaround, simply click PayPal, which allows you to pay with your credit card safely and easily.


Although she cannot express it verbally, I know that Upala is beyond grateful for the more than 180 people who have collectively donated over €8000 so far.


Sending you so much love and immeasurable appreciation,

Jacob & Upala
