Friday Presidential Plenary Session
Speaker: Russell James Pyle
Bio: Russell singer-songwriter from Albuquerque, NM. Formerly a counselor, his songwriting is heavily influenced by mental health and ecopsychology, or the study of how the natural world interacts with the mind. These songs are poems and tributes to our struggles, and how we can harness the power to overcome them. In 2016, Russell was selected by the National Parks Arts Foundation as a centennial artist-in-residence for Big Bend National Park, where he lived for a month, writing about the desert environment. He has two solo albums released, “Rise” and “Seasons, and tours regularly throughout the country.
