How I came to make this album:
“When I first heard chants from the Yoga tradition, they felt like a memory to me and struck a deep chord. The words and melodies clearly held the longing of countless spiritual seekers throughout the ages and over and over again have inspired insight, strength and clarity in the midst of my human journey.
I learned to play the guitar in my forties so I could accompany the chants and songs that were mysteriously opening my heart. Before long I began to lead kirtan (call-and-response chanting) at spiritual gatherings and found that others were also moved by these songs. I am also drawn to contemporary songs that express this orientation towards realizing our Self and living from that place as our truest expression, so I’ve included a couple of my favorites here.
