My Storytelling 
Approach Helps You Create the Story You Want to Live

Skywalker Payne is the founder of Vibrant Velvet Voice Productions. An ancestral healer, she accepted the name Gogo (elder) Griot (storyteller) from her ancestors, as the simple description of her work. 

Is Life Giving You Lemons when you Desire Oranges?

Peace, Purpose, Prosperity

Inflation, disease, war, violence, politics can make any person feel sad, depressed, or confused.

And if you're not feeling confident, secure, or loved, life can seem overwhelming. At times like this, you may need someone to talk to, or something to read, or an inspiring, transformative, participatory experience to lift you up. You've come to the right place.

I'm here to guide you.

Sometimes we all get lost and just need a helping hand to point us in the right direction.

A long-lived life, education, varied work experiences, and a lifetime of spiritual study and practice support the work of Vibrant Velvet Voice Productions. Our mission is to help you navigate your life journey to a space of fulfillment, joy, ease, gratitude and generosity.

Gogo Griot


From her work in non-profits, to storytelling, nursing, and healing, her goal is to help relieve the suffering in the world.


Gogo enhances her healing events using her talents as a performing artist and storytelling. She puts the art in the healing arts.


In these times, it takes courage to tell people to smile, breathe deeply and be grateful. It requires that I live this thought every day.

Practice Gratitude in Trying Times

Gratitude is a super-power. Once, riding a bus in Los Angeles, an older woman sat next to me. She said, "You carry an attitude of abundance."

I thought that strange because at that time, as often, I was broke. But as I reflected, I came to see, my practice of being grateful creates a sense of security, abundance, and stability.

Yet, I know many people find practicing gratitude difficult. This short eBook provides a simple, tested method to begin or to expand your gratitude practice.

"I wrote this eBook just for you. YES YOU!"
