I am so grateful for my absolutely dreamy experience in Ireland and at Creacon Wellness Retreat Center. I was able to have some solo retreat time and then lead 6 other women through the Sound of Solstice Retreat. What an absolute joy and gift!

I am sharing a general message to them all in hopes they might tune into my website and soak it in.

I collected all their email addresses to send them out a private message today, one week after the retreat and alas, I have lost the list of emails. Business manager anyone? ūüėČ

Open your heart. breathe deeply. All is well

During the weekend we chanted, laughed, created our own mantras and songs and rested. It was a unique and personal journey for each of us and a collective one that inspired and healed all of us.

In the transformational coaching practice I am trained in, there is a mantra: “We do not become ourselves by ourselves.” After this time with these 6 beautiful women, I can feel this truth in every cell of my being.

We all have a gifts. We all have struggles. I invite you to take this month to tune in deeply to your own vibration and seek out similar vibrations that reflect the best of you and can nurture you as you become tender and more flowing in the harder parts.

The favorite mantra of our time together at Creacon was the heart sutra (not suprising).

For more chanting, songs and good vibrations, join me at the Maine Yoga Fest July 15-17 and in Hyannis overlooking the harbor on July 21 6-7:30pm.

If you are interested in a coaching or Rising Star Healing Session, NOW IS THE TIME to reach out, as I am off from teaching school full time until September.

Happy Happy Joyful July!

love love love, Alicia

It’s hard to believe we are here – November 2021. It was two years ago that I moved to Boston and began teaching full time while also continuing to perform and record music.

With the pandemic, much of my performing stopped and deep transformation began to unfold within. During that time I also turned 50 and ran my first 10K.

You can listen and watch me working on a new tune here inspired by October.

Now, here I am feeling a return to the very essence of who I am and why I am here. This essence also feels new and expanded – older and wiser, capable of holding more and worrying less. What a gift!

As I begin to record my 6th album, I wanted to invite you to two upcoming opporutinties to be with me, my vibration and some new songs.

First on 11/11, I will be doing a chanting event on ZOOM. It’s a pay what you can situation, though you will need to register to get the passcode. Check out the FB event here.

On 12/21/21 – Winter Solstice – I will be chanting live at Power Yoga of CapeCod with a limited number of guests at 15. If you don’t register in time or would rather not be in person you can also sign-up to livestream it.

This will be a true coming home for me – to my beloved Cape Cod and on the winter solstice, a time when I love doing events. The energy will be healing, uplifting and sacred. I would love to be with all that feel called – whether in person or online.

Enjoy this new moon in Scorpio. We have all been evolving at a rapid rate.

Keep letting go and allowing in the new.

Happy New Moon in October!

Enjoy this new song I am working on called Knowing. Are you following me yet on Youtube? How about Spotify or Instagram? As I record my new record I will be sharing the journey, so be sure to tune in.

May All Beings in All the Worlds be Happy and Free!

Happy new moon in Virgo! And now almost full moon in Pieces. ( Monday)

Sweet September indeed. I started this blog back on August 21. Hello “transition into fall, trying to catch my breath” reality. LOL. Here we are now at September 18.

I turned 50 a few weeks ago and I feel beyond blessed. Those of you who have already turned 50 know that it creates an opportunity for deep awareness and reflection.

I remember turning 40. That experience also invited me into a lot of reflection and, in fact, I created 40 chants in 40 days a practice which I shared on youtube leading up to my 40th birthday. That action that I took in a time of my life where I was really struggling in a lot of ways was truly transformative for me – both personally and professionally. I remember saying to myself (and anyone that would listen), “I am no longer doing anything that isn’t a part of my soul reason for being here. It was not the easiest decade I must admit, but it certainly was the most expanding and has led me to now – a time where I am truly happy and healthy.

What I didn’t fully realize at the time was that creating 40 and Fabulous was helping me lay a vibrational grid for the next ten years of my life. It led me to record my album 2012: Isn’t it Amazing and the founding of my business Sounding Still Wellness. It led me to chanting and singing in many yoga studios and healing festivals, where I taught meditation classes and facilitated lots of Rising Star Healing Sessions and initiations. It was a dream come true and it all began with my desire to heal and awaken myself. It did not always feel like a dream come true, but it was.

Now, here I am again looking forward at a new decade and I imagine I am laying a new vibrational grid, one that builds on all I have learned, both expanding and simplifying that which most resonates for me now.

What does this mean on a practical level and how can you look forward to tuning into me and my work?

  • I am recording my sixth album to be released in Spring 2022. (YAHOO!)
  • I am growing and developing my music teaching career at a resourced vibrant school called The Meadowbrook School of Weston, which provides me with community, financial flow and abundance and joy
  • I am becoming certified as a Transformational Life Coach in Awakening Feminine Power, which will allow me to serve even more women as they fully self-actualize here in this lifetime.
  • I am leading a retreat at Creacon Wellness Retreat Center in Ireland June 2022.

I can’t wait to share with you all the new songs I am writing and hear more about your journeys in person as I begin booking in person gigs again. If you are a yoga studio or healing center and would like me to come to your space, please don’t hesitate to reach out. I am also available for private house concerts.

Be gentle out there, trust your own path, and look for like-minded vibrations to play with.

All is Well.

10 years ago I was flying to Lebanon to teach music at the American Community School in Beirut. It was 2010 and I am pretty sure the apartment I lived in during that time has been blown up. My heart is with the Lebanese people and all helping to support them in this moment. I remember singing Better Me at a school talent show and a student coming up to me and saying, why are you a teacher? Why are you not a famous singer? I left Beirut 3 months later and recommitted my life to why I am here. That led to the 2012 release of Isn’t it Amazing?

Now here I am in Boston, MA stepping into a new teaching position at The Meadowbrook School of Weston in the middle of a global pandemic and the cultural pandemic (and hopefully transformation and reparation) of systemic racism. Full circle for this little human being, I must admit.

If there is one thing I know now on the eve of my 49th birthday, I was born to be a teacher and my students are here to awaken me.

In September of 2001, I was living in Brooklyn, NY and was working on the 16th floor of Rockefeller Center as a temp when two planes hit the World Trade Center. This past March, as COVID took NYC by storm, I was in Boston, MA remembering that time vividly.

2020 has taught me time is a spiral, everything is energy and when in doubt, I choose love. LOVE. LOVE. LOVE.

In 2007, my mother left her body, though her Spirit is endless. She birthed me into a body in August of 1971 and in that year, a lot of amazing music was released (Ain’t No Sunshine, Imagine, I Feel the Earth Move, A Case of You.)

On May 17, 2019 I released 12 Rebirth. It was my greatest and most loving creative achievement to date. The honoring and end of a chapter.

Today, a new chapter begins.

Sounds of Alicia.

I wonder what will happen next.

 

Will you join me?

Happy New Moon in Leo – August 18, 2020

Hello Friends!

IMG_0834It has been a while since I have visited this space and shared. I apologize. It has been an internal time for me and much is being created. I will be releasing a new Album in the spring of 2019 and I couldn’t be more excited to share the new songs and the new vibration with many many new people throughout the US and abroad.

In the meantime, I am returning to Cincinnati for a concert on 11/10 at my friend Vivienne Gerard’s home and I am so excited to see many of you in person. The amazing news is that Vivienne has created on online portal of light that all can tune into no matter location. I am holding a vibration within this portal and have already shared the chant Asato Ma to open the portal on 11/1 (yesterday). I will also be sharing a chant/musical vibration on 11/11 to close the portal. ANYONE and everyone can tune in by going to this PAGE and joining us in holding a powerful vibration of light for ourselves and all during these 11 days of November.IMG_9886

I am also singing and chanting locally here on Cape Cod for a private NEW MOON event  on Nov. 7 at a home in Osterville. If you would like more info, please email me.

IMG_0562Greetings all. It has been a while since I have posted, as I have been in a lot of deep personal contemplation. Sometimes on the journey, as an artist and as someone who chooses to see their journey as a spiritual one, there is the need for an outer silence, as one allows the inner landscape to shift and transform. I have been in such a passage since around April of this year. As you all know the noise in the outer world is quite intense and so I have found a greater need to slow down, be still and allow myself to get very clear about my next steps as an artist and as a human on this earth right now.

The good news is many new songs have come through me and the vibration they hold is one of truth, love, hope, human fragility, the power of connection, and transformative joy. Join me on Aug 31 at the Barnstable Tavern to hear some of them live. I look forward to recording them over the next few months and sharing this new vibration far and wide.

Today, this new moon in Leo feels like a rebirthing and so if felt powerful and true to say a quick hello and let you know I am still here and will be sharing new music very very soon.

In the meantime, please feel to reach out in anyway should you be interested in some live music for an event or a private energy healing session. These are powerful times to be alive and I am grateful for each opportunity to connect in the vibration of love, truth, peace, non-violence and right-conduct.

I share with you one of my favorite tracks from Wise Innocence, Samastah Lokah Sukhino Bevhantu. May All Beings in All the Worlds be Happy and Free!

 

 

new moon 5.15
From New Moon Deck by Aarona Lea

Whew! I have been in some kind of vortex since January. Truly. Something about today – this new moon has delivered me into a whole new vibration. I couldn’t be more grateful.

The best news is, I have been writing ¬†tons of songs. These songs are a new vibration – ¬†a vibration that feels very connected to my ¬†2012:Isn’t it Amazing? album. Like that album, I have had to travel deep inside and into dark places in order to allow what wants to come through, to come through.

I still spend time thinking “why can’t I just be a happy artist who is always motivated and moving forward? Why must I dive deep into the abyss in order to create?” In this moment, in the energy of this new moon, I laugh at this question. That is like asking, “why must I carry a baby for 9 months, Can’t I just think about it and it be here?”

I recently met a beautiful soul in the body of a young man at my favorite coffee shop in my town and he enlightened me by talking about the law of gestation. That is where I have been – GESTATING. And so, thank you for still being here and know that a whole new offering is coming and I can’t wait to share it. so much LOVE to all of you.

Happy Happy New Moon in May!
