Mantra . Kirtan . Yoga . Meditation . Yantra . Pilgrimage
Whether I practice asana, sing a devotional prayer or paint a yantra, the invitation is always the same: to surrender and return to the effortless, sacred flow.
Singing kirtan is an inspiring way to express our love and longing for the Divine. Mantra takes us beyond the mind and points to That which ultimately has no name or form in a direct and experiential way. Our gatherings are devotional in nature and can be both deeply meditative or wildly ecstatic, inspired by the devotional and non-dual traditions of India.
A yearning to keep deepening my own experience brings me to Rishikesh and Tiruvanamalai in India often. Here I share kirtan and find inspiration in the wisdom and love of my teacher, other mystics and sacred places.
'Cave of the Heart' is my latest mantra and kirtan album.
You can buy it here and download it on bandcamp.
'Bliss of Being' and 'Cave of the Heart' are both available on Spotify

The way in which you give space to silence is so powerful. Your offering is the perfect integration of Kirtan, Bhakti, non-duality, like a deep meditation.
"It's so wonderful how you are able to sing with such ecstacy and yet the silence is always so very present"
"Your voice feels so clean, and I mean it in a deep way. Soft, gentle, and little or no energy between the sound's origin and its expression.
Such heart in your tone. "
