Dreaming-Bear Baraka Kanaan, an internationally renowned spoken word artist, author, and peace advocate, elegantly blends the universe's quantum understandings with inner expressions of the heart, offering a fresh perspective on how to transform pain into beauty. Most recently, his work has been focused on the war torn regions of the Middle East, where he uses creativity and art to build bridges of commonality between life-long enemies.

“I have devoted my life to the artful weaving of conscious expressions that give something of beauty and value back to the world,” says Dreaming-Bear. “My words are vessels for the voice of the universe to open hearts and minds to embracing their own capacity for greatness.”

The foundation for Dreaming-Bear’s work as a transformational artist is deeply personal. Born to a runaway teenage mother and refugee father, he survived through years of poverty and abuse. When he was eight years old, he witnessed the death of his brother and the kidnapping of his sister. To cope with an overwhelming sense of pain and loss, he began to write, beginning the alchemical inspiration for metamorphosis and spiritual discovery.

Dreaming-Bear has traveled the world extensively, sharing his message of unconditional love and fulfillment of personal potential with audiences as diverse as international dignitaries, corporate groups, and third world refugees. He holds a master’s degree in Communications and is the author of seven inspirational books and two spoken word cd’s. Dreaming-Bear is a frequent guest in the media, hosts his own weekly radio show on www.consciousalliances.com, and was featured in Without Walls, a documentary on peace in the Middle East. He is an acclaimed keynote speaker and conducts seminars, workshops, and inspired gatherings worldwide.
