"I only wanted to see you laughing in the Purple Rain." - Purple Rain (Prince) 

We know how powerful music can be as a tool of healing and transformation. But we don't often think of that happening amidst 20,000 screaming fans during an arena concert tour. 

But that's exactly what happened to Claire Hennekam during Prince's most recent Australian tour last month. 

With friendships formed, fears driven to the surface and released and, what Claire describes as "Meditation through elation", blanketing the planet in Love and Light as Prince and the NPG sang, played and danced their way into the hearts of over 100,000 people over the course of the month, there is no question in her mind that she, her fellow concert-goers, and, indeed the world, was transformed in some way through the energy generated during these concerts.

So how can we use this in our own lives? How can we turn our supposedly "non-spiritual" experiences into something extraordinary, just through looking at them another way? 

Join us on The Difference Radio Show this week as Claire shares her experiences from the various concerts and other events she attended as part of Prince's "Welcome 2 Australia" tour and inspires those listening to embrace the transformaive power of their own "Purple Rain".
