Ramona King, Wisdom Teller

Profile Information

About Me:
They say storytellers are Keepers of the Culture. I prefer to call myself a Keeper of the Heart. I've been performing the spoken word on stage nationally and locally for over 15 years. I conduct workshops and give presentations on embracing change and challenges for empowered living. I perform folklore and original stories in movement-dance and song, creating an atmosphere of playful wisdom which in turn stimulates imagination, literary skills, and logic. My historical portrayal of civil rights activist and educator Mary Mcleod Bethune puts youth in touch with an African American woman born in the late 1800's ,who believed anything is possible as she manifested her dream to build a school which stands today as the Bethune-Cookman College.

I'm also the 4th Sunday Host and DJ for "The Spoken Word Hour" on KUNM 89.9 FM, KUNM.org on live webstream. Listen to an array of Stories. Storytellers, Slam Poets, Albuquerque Actors and Interviewees artistically share life stories, ambitions and concerns. The Spoken Word Hour - Where Words Do Their Thing - every Sunday night at 8pm.

The road trip on the storytellers path has been exhilarating and often times profound. I am sincerely grateful for all who've entrusted me to tell their stories...who've entrusted me to listen to their vulnerabilities. Folklore continues to teach me something about my circumstances and what life is ... who people are. Here in Albuquerque I've gained so much from the people I've met. I gain so much from the silence I experience when I sit outside with the starry night sky. This place truly is enchanting
Favorite Thing(s) About Albuquerque:
Mountains, Adobe Homes, Blue Sky, Starry Night and Enchanting Possibilities
What I'm Reading:
The Alphabet vs. the Goddess, There's a Spiritual Solution to Every Problem, I've Known Rivers, Antigone, Between Parent and Teenager

Naturally 7 is an incredible experience of sound and vocal creativity

Here's one post that sums up the purpose of the Maternal Dreamer shows:


A few years ago Fred and Kristen Wilson of Stawberry/Muddy Wheel Gallery in Albuquerque New Mexico together created a necklace I saw in their shop. I was immediately drawn to it. Kristen said it's so appropriate that of all the necklaces… Continue

Hey Sister, those contacts I sent to you were probably blasts about this year's "A Season's Griot".  Have you heard it?  This year features, Mother Mary Carter Smith, Brother Blue and Jackie Torrence.  And, I haven't make contact with the Arts Center.  Please resend that information?  Thanks.

Here's hoping the holiday season is good to and for you and...the coming days are better each day.

Peace and Blessings

Well, hi, lovely to hear from you. I'm just getting used to idea of this. I can see where blog life could be quite consuming! What are you doing?

Hi Ramona,
Great to hear from you. Happy 2009. I officiated at 71 weddings in 2008 and it looks like I'll be pretty busy marrying couples in 2009. It's the best job I can imagine! I'm just finishing an article on the 21st Century Wedding Ceremony (c). It's time to give couples more options as they pledge their love to each other. My direct marketing/newsletter business is also booming. Life is good!

Awww poor thing. Stale popcorn is no mean for anyone!! ): I hope the event she went to was worth losing out on her meals. It would be great to hear from her. Unfortunately they are closed Friday. I guess the girls want the day off to shop til they drop, but i'd really like to see her or at least hear from her. Any other ideas?
