Jen Myzel is a singer-songwriter, elementary school music teacher, author and activist in Oakland, CA.
Jen is a close student of Joanna Macy and The Work that Reconnects, whose teachings of resilience through vulnerability influence her work as a teacher, facilitator, and artist. Her soulful, storytelling music aims to connect people to the deeper purpose of their lives and foster a greater connection to the web of life. Jen is coming out with a new album this winter, Birds of the Night, which is her soul-stirring plea for climate justice now. In 2019, Jen also published a children’s sing-a-long book, Yellow Lotus Flower, about the courage it takes for a grieving young girl and a lotus seed to rise up from the muck. Joanna Macy praises the book as “a story for our times”.
Jen has collaborated with inspiring, family-friendly artists including the Alphabet Rockers, Octopretzel and Empty Hands Music, and has performed at the Bioneers Conference. Jen is a song-leader in the Thrive Street Choir and has written and led many songs for direct actions and rituals across the Bay Area, including the widely-sung “Gentle Heart”. She currently lives in a land-based community in Occidental, CA. You can check out more about her music and children's book out at
