Margie’s Latest Endeavor

1st May 2015 A few years ago, at a crossroads some would call a trivia, I embarked on a new endeavor that brought my performance work in Women’s Music to a close. Having enrolled in a 3-year PhD/Psychology program at the University for Integrative Learning, I went on to complete a dissertation entitled “12-Step Sponsorship & Psychotherapy: In Search of A Hybrid Therapeutic Modality” and opened a practice offering integrative counseling to the community. I am currently accepting new clients in the San Francisco-Bay Area and beyond (phone sessions). My other website – MargieAdamPhD.com – is focused on my counseling practice.

“Running an errand” in Scotland…

1st May 2015 I used to think songwriting and composing were only done at the piano. So, of course, I was often filled with guilt for not spending more time at the piano. It was my dear friend, the songwriter Meg Christian who taught me that time spent doing errands is part of the song-writing process. According to Webster’s Dictionary, an errand is “a short trip taken to attend to some business.” So it is that I am “running an errand” in Scotland and Wales this Spring, I will be travelling once again to the Callanish Stones in the Outer Hebrides as well as to the stones pictured on the… Read More

Was it Something I Sang?

15th March 2013 After a long and winding process, I am ecstatic to announce that these three recordings are finally available online as MP3 downloads at CDBaby. Starting this moment, you can download each album in its entirety or comb through the song lists and pick out your favorites. I cannot tell you how relieved I am to have these songs out in the world once again after two decades. Although each album was represented on Best of Margie Adam with a few songs, most of the music has not been accessible since LPs and cassettes went obsolete in the 90s. Margie Adam. Songwriter.

From Margie Adam to Margie Adam, PhD…

18th April 2010 Greetings! This website was originally designed in collaboration with my excellent webmaven, Barbara Brust (www.lucilledesign.com) in 1998. At the time I was deeply engaged with writing and performing music and with community organizing. Looking over the site now, I see the pages document my artistic, political and spiritual evolution quite well.My life has been healed and empowered by a commitment to feminist values, specifically inclusiveness and respect for differences. I do believe that women will save this planet if we do what we can, where we are with what we have. A few years ago I enrolled in a PhD program at the University of Integrative Learning… Read More

Scotland at 60 – who knew?!

4th August 2007 So let’s see… when I last checked in, I was about to head off for another visit to Scotland – on a quest to find the elusive Fairy Glen on the Isle of Skye. See April entry. I’m happy to report that I found my way through the mists back to Fairy Glen and spent a lovely time there. I’m not sure how I got there – and can’t guarantee I could get back… but I did get there in May. In the context of an Isle so saturated of magical energy, this place radiates its own special harmonics. Ooohwee!. One thing leads to another in Scotland… Read More
