I have been aware of the energy of 11/11 for almost 15 years now. What is that energy? I like to think of it as a Unity energy. I imagine each 1 in 11/11 is a pillar of Light standing next to another pillar of light. What happens when we all allow ourselves to be our lightest, most peaceful and connected selves? What happens when we have the courage to acknowledge our human struggles and choose love and connection still.

This is the journey I continue to walk and I am beyond blessed to have had the resources, family and friends and spiritual teachings that I have had thus far.

That being said, I also feel like I am on the verge of somewhere I have never been before – like that moment in Back to the future where Doc says ” Where we’re going, we don’t need roads.” Can you relate? Do you feel like both an individual and collective awareness or awakening is happening and you are not sure about your next step? Or you can see the next step but it’s hard to trust it’s actually going somewhere.

You are not alone.

We (Humanity) need you to remember as best you can and live into who you truly are in service of yourself and all. This remembering can be joyful! This remembering is why we are here. This remembering can happen while living and connecting and being a regular old human.

What a miraculous time to be alive.

Thank you for tuning in to my music and my journey and the way I choose to share it. I would love to see you in person on Dec. 21 on Cape Cod at Dennisport Yoga for a Solstice Celebration with yoga and music and ritual co-led by Leigh Alberti and Joanna Benevides.

I would also love to see you in Ireland March 17-19 at my beloved Creacon Wellness Retreat Center. It will be a powerful and nurturing time of connection and creation. To learn more about Sound of Rebirth and book the retreat, visit the Creacon website.

Big love to all and know that my music and it’s vibration is always available and in service of you. Find me on Bandcamp, Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon and if you are listening a lot or feel moved, feel free to send me a little love in the form of money.

I am also updating on my instagram page if that is something you. choose to tune into.

Big love to all. Enjoy this final passage of 2022.

This past month of September I was posting one of my most popular songs a lot on Instagram called Sweet September. I also re-learned a song I wrote 29 years ago September Again to help support the release of my friend Felice Cohen’s new memoir Half In. (Check it out, It’s awesome!) It was such a busy month of getting back to teaching and feeling much more scheduled, I didn’t even get a chance to write a blog.

So, here we are in OCTOBER again. I love this month. I have always wanted to write a song about (or during) October that really embodies the magic of this month, but I haven’t yet. Maybe in the next 3 weeks…..I will keep you posted.

In the meantime, Check out what I have coming up this month – a Retreat in NH on Nov. 5, Solstice yoga and chanting on Dec. 21 on Cape Cod at Dennisport Yoga and a March Retreat in Ireland at my beloved Creacon. As I type this I am waiting to connect with Fugan Dineen, my old friend and excellent drummer (it’s him chanting on one of my most streamed tracks OM GAM GANAPATYE NAMAHA). So, hopefully some kirtan and chanting events from us will emerge soon in the New England area.

Be gentle with yourself out there and trust your flow, no matter whether it syncs perfectly with anyone else.

We are in a time of community – small community. Who are you spending time with? Who is supporting you? How can you nurture and expand on that positive loving energy? and if you are not feeling that small community in a loving way, what do you need to do in your own life to allow more of that in?

Love you all. Keep singing, keep playing, keep on keeping on!

PS. my new favorite album is from Deva Premal & Miten and includes a track with India.Arie. Check it out.

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? 😉

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).

Gate Gate Paragate Parasamgate Bohdi Swaha

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

I have been singing on the winter and summer solstice for over ten years and I am deeply aware that these thresholds of nature – of shifting from season to season – are to be acknowledged and celebrated.

In this time when we as humanity have created both a multi-cultural and evolving reality, along with so much polarization and feelings of isolation, what could be better than coming together as fellow humans to celebrate the Sun.

The Sun – An energy we all share and need.

And in the magical vibration that is IRELAND!

This June 24-26 I will be leading a retreat at my beloved Creacon Wellness Center and would love for you to join me. During this retreat we will be relaxing, listening deeply, learning to chant and sing, developing our meditation and chanting practice, journaling, laughing, asking ourselves deep questions, inviting ourselves to be silent when needed, and enjoying the healing, luxurious energy that is Creacon

You may be thinking is this the right time to book a flight to Ireland and hang out with Alicia with everything going on in my life and in the world? I would say YES!

The time is NOW.

LEARN MORE AND REGISTER HERE

In Ireland on the summer solstice there is magic and I want to share that magic with you. This may be the last Summer Solstice retreat I do in Ireland for many years (more on that later), so if you are feeling the call, I encourage you to GO FOR IT!

As much is falling away and changing and shifting, so much more is also being born and created. As we allow this new creation to fully manifest, we need each other. We need to gather with like-minded folks and support this collective rebirth.

My whole life has been about transitions and transformation. And my music has a special way of guiding me and others through transformation in a loving, joyful, and peaceful way.

So whether you are feeling strong and ready to take who you are to the next level or you are feel weary and just need some TLC and time to rest, THIS RETREAT IS FOR YOU!

Come to Ireland and give yourself a gift of Grace.

You can also join me in person on May 21 in the North End of Boston at Soma Yoga with Amy Leydon or July 15-17 at the Maine Yoga Fest.

love you all! Jai Jai Ma!

Here we go again. Does anyone else feel like life becomes more and more non-linear and time moves in a whole new way?

I am grateful to be here now and feeling like something is opening up in a new way I haven’t felt in a long while. There is the obvious practical parts of that. For instance in just a few weeks I will be a music teacher again without masks. Teaching children, singing freely without masks. Alleluia!

Also, many of my friends and colleagues are beginning to tour and play as live musicians again. It’s been a long long couple of years for us independent musicians.

There is also a much deeper energy happening internally that I am aware of.

As I write this I am sitting at a kitchen table on Cape Cod – the kitchen table that I have experienced many ages. A kitchen table that has fed and loved me and my family through multiple decades in multiple moments of time.

What a gift and privilege to have this physically manifested anchor in my life. The gift that allows me to see how sometimes this table has been an incredibly comfortable and safe place, while other times it felt alien and scary to me. The table has always been the table, so what is actually shifting?

Our world right now is also reflecting to us the same thing. How does your world feel to you? Is it safe and comfortable? Does it feel alien and scary? If you are anything like me, you probably feel your life, your body, and your world in both ways.

This is the time I believe we are in. A time of holding the paradox. a time of incredible transformation and evolutionary expansion. It reminds me of the song “Isn’t it Amazing?” I released in 2012. In fact, that whole album seems to have great resonance in this moment right now.

Our awareness and ability to hold multiple beliefs and vibrations has expanded. This can sometimes feel overwhelming and confusing. And yet, it feels to me like this is exactly why we are here. This time invites us to become clearer, softer, stronger and more willing to hold the paradox in every moment and in every cell.

It’s easy to think you know. It’s easy to persuade someone else to your side. It’s easy to hold onto to answers or solutions, even if they no longer work.

What I am interested in is opening to new questions. Can I have the courage to stay curious and keep asking questions when so many around me want answers and certainty? Can I remember my soul is here to seek and wonder and LIVE in the questions opening to more and more love, acceptance and co-creation?

Being a seeker, a songwriter, a singer, a teacher, a healer, a mystic wanderer. This is who I have always been. And this is what I will continue to become and express. What it may look like day to day will always evolve, but the vibration of love, peace, truth, right-conduct and non-violence will continue to be my anchors.

I am so excited for some upcoming live events in which I will be singing and sharing this vibration: April 10 for Yoga Reaches Out New England at Gillette Stadium, June at Creacon Wellness Retreat and July At Maine Yoga Fest.

Join me, join others. Let’s remember again who we are, why we are here and the glorious experience of singing and being together.

Love love love

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.

And save the dates of Dec. 7 and Jan. 5 for other New Moon chanting events locally on Cape Cod!

Thank you for listening.

Thank you for being you!

Another December and I’m coming home, but not like I’ve ever done before

I can’t help but remember all the places you had me roam, so I could be here now for what’s in store

And I’m gonna Be the light I always dreamed I’d be

Be the light for all to see

Be the light I always dreamed I’d be

Be the light for all to see

-from Be The Light by Alicia Mathewson originally written in 2008, recorded in 2015

Happy New Moon to all! It’s an incredible time to be alive. I hope you are taking time to be still, listen to your favorite music, take walks in the woods, rest, drink water and connect with like minded loving friends. 2018 will be all about love. It’s YOUR Choice whether you focus on love or focus on fear. CHOOSE LOVE. it’ really is the best way to go.

Join me on THURSDAY this week at Power Yoga of Cape Cod Dennisport for an incredible evening of live music and yoga along with Kristen O’Toole, Stephanie Gilrein, Emily Harris and Leigh Alberti.  Proceeds benefit SQ Foundation (global) and WE CAN (local), so it’s an opportunity to give yourself a GIFT while also serving others.

We are in the new moon cycle in late October. It’s a wonderful time for transformation and musical awakening. I can feel lots of new songs bubbling up and am looking forward to a lot more writing and hopefully a new record soon.

In the meantime, my record Isn’t it Amazing? that I released in March of 2012 has circled back into the consciousness and has helped create an amazing new opportunity and experience for me and all who want to join!

I will be doing a house concert in Cincinnati, Ohio on 11/11 in the home of Vivienne Gerard followed by a Crystal Core Activation. Connecting with Vivienne and her work through her new book One Day is Here has been mystical, magical and incredibly affirming of why I make music. My songs Breath in Breath Out and Sweet September are highlighted in her book along with tracks by Snatam Kaur and Imagine Dragons. pretty cool musical company if you ask me.

All of the details for the concert and activation can be found here.

On Nov. 11, 2009, which I consider 11-11-11, I toned in the Great Pyramid at Giza and felt it as an initiation. This is a picture of what I saw when we exited the pyramid.

Now, 8 years later, the fullness of that experience will continue to evolve and expand. I hope you can join us for this most amazing event!

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!
