| About the Song |
Finding healing and inspiration in the outdoors is what we all are needing to connect the deepest of our souls to humanity. Connecting our youth to nature is a constant march into our public lands. Bringing our veterans to nature to breathe the fresh air is that of a healing narrative. We play and explore the treasures of the wild public lands and get hypnotized by our fresh running rivers. Nature is the most important medicine to the soul and it is what keeps us grounded and balanced. Your “soul river” is only defined by your own exploration and limitations. Start exploring. Find your place to heal. Nature is always ready to accept you.
This song embodies the heart of Soul River’s mission. It speaks for itself that we are not to worry about having to explain our hearts anymore. The lyrics provide guidance as you run into nature and dance freely. The video emits a light of inspiration to your path. We cant wait to share it with you. Listen with ease and enjoy!
