"Learn to Lose" - New short film by Billy Joe Miller & Kahren Hipscher
Below is a short film inspired by my song "Learn to Lose", made by friends and artists Billy Joe Miller & Kahren Hipscher. Filmed in New Mexico, it's a beautiful seven-minute meditation on loss, relationship to uncertainty, isolation, and transformation that draws from the natural world. The film also features instrumentals by Danny Paul Grody.

The workshop is being offered as a 4-part Saturday series from November 7th-28th. 11:30am-1pm Pacific Time / 2:30pm-4pm Eastern Time / 6:30pm-8pm GMT / 7:30pm-9pm CET.
