IMG_9374Hello all – can you believe it’s July 23rd? Wow, time sure is moving fast.

I wanted to send a quick note and let you know I am singing this Thursday at Bismore Park on Hyannis Harbor as a part of the Love Listen Local series. It’s also a good time to save the date for our next Full Moon Beach Yoga with live music – Monday Aug. 7.

The energies inside and out are calling us to be still and allow for great change. So take time to be in nature, listen to music, chant with others, take naps and CHILL OUT. All is well and all will happen in Divine Time. Check out my meditation and healing energy offerings at Sounding Still Wellness.

August is coming and it’s a great month to listen to my old new-age country song, Back Porch Drunk. Peace to all. Make Music, Be Happy!

July 9. Full Moon. Guru Purnima.

The weather on Cape Cod (and in Vermont where I recently attended a family wedding) has been absolutely perfect. It has given me such an amazing opportunity to soak in all the elements: Earth, Water, Fire, Air, Ether. It’s like I am realizing all over again why summer  makes me so happy.

I can stand in the salt water ocean, with my feet on the sand, the sun shining down on me, and the breeze in my hair. All elements along with my breath in total balance. Ahhhh.

I hope you are giving yourself the chance to experience this as well. The energies of summer can move very fast and I find it is important to take time to GIVE to yourself and SLOW DOWN.

To this end, I hope you will join me for FULL MOON BEACH YOGA Tonight July 9 and again on August 7 and September 6. Stephanie Gilrein will be leading the yoga and I will be offering a sacred and awakening vibration through song and guitar.

mindfulness bookI am also offering a 3 week meditation series tomorrow night Monday July 10 at Sounding Still Wellness. For only $55, you get 3 weeks of meditation practice and connection, as well as the FREE book Mindfulness by Derek O’Neill. You can also drop-in each week for $20, if you can’t make all 3.

One of my favorite tracks during this summer season and a great one to drive to is Now is My Time from my record Wise Innocence. Turn it on, Turn it up, and know that you are always exactly where you re supposed to be. Love love love!

I am so grateful to have this creative project to put my heart into. I need music and connection more than ever right now and my guess is you might to.

Please join me TODAY at 11:11 LIVE ON FACEBOOK as I launch a new CD with 7 live chants, 2 live songs and 2 studio recording songs called BE THE LIGHT. It is an offering of love, peace, truth, right-conduct & non-violence. Help me bring this music and vibration to all with ears to hear. We have only a $4000 goal (which I hope we far surpass) and have until Dec. 2 to reach it.

img_8334My wife and I are having our first open house since we got married and decided to do it on Halloween. Kind of a fun chance to get to use all that stuff you get at your wedding – like the giant punch bowl.

Keeping in the festive spirit, there are lots of opportunities coming up to celebrate together and in person through yoga classes and chanting concerts. Nov. 18, I am at Regina’s Connection in Hudson MA. On Dec. 2, Both Kristen and I will be at Grow You Healing Arts Center in Holliston, MA to chant and raise money for Ben Speaks, a cause close to both of our hearts.

On Wednesday Dec. 21, I hope you will join me for the 5 year celebration of Sounding Still Wellness at Power Yoga of Cape Cod Dennisport. It will include a yoga class with 4 teachers and live music by me. This event will also be raising money for both Cape Wellness Collabroative & SQ Foundation.

I know many feel the world is in a very difficult place, and though I agree there is division and suffering in our country and throughout the whole world right now, I still feel incredibly empowered to BE THE CHANGE and sing my song with all my heart. I hope you will join me!

love love love, Alicia

chant-4-change-2Happy New Moon!! Please Join me tonight at Real Life Yoga in Quincy for Chanting 6:30pm

On October 8 there is an event called #Chant4Change. If you can be there – BE THERE If you can Donate, Donate

Sweet Honey in the Rock will be there, which to me grounds the event in 50 years of social activism, antiracism, AMAZING MUSIC, and feminist thinking.

MC YOGI will be there which brings in the modern movement of yoga, music and getting “Off The Mat”

David Newman/Durga Das will be there, bringing in the powerful lineage of Krishna Das.

Tina Malia will be there, who just happens to be one of my all time favorite songwriters and performers.

This event feels like it was literally created for me – inviting me to marry my activist self with my spiritual self. What an opportunity! Thank you Universe. Thank you people who work on behalf of the universe.

Thank you to music, the never ending vibration that connects all, heals all, and awakens all.  JAI JAI MA!!
