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.

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!

To celebrate my favorite time of year on Cape Cod, I have decided to create Sweet September: 12 Days of 12 Rebirth.

In this series I will be sharing a track from my recent Album 12 Rebirth, talking about its creation and also linking it to an earlier song of mine. Read more about why I am doing this at Day 1.

Day 10 Sanctity and I am that I am

I am writing Day 10 from Creacon Wellness Retreat in Ireland. I just completed a day of traveling and feel blessed to have landed here and now. These two songs could not be more perfect for my arrival here.

Sanctity was one of the last songs I wrote for 12 Rebirth and it was partly inspired by Richard Rudd’s book The Gene Keys. If you have never heard of this book, I encourage you to check it out.

Both Sanctity and I am that I am are what we might call anthems and both have mantras of sound and energy in them. They are both about my relationship with my Highest Self or Source.

Both songs reference Christian scripture and the vibration of what I understand as Christ’s Love. The difference between these songs and your average Christian song is that I do not believe Christ is the only way. I trust all Beings and all Souls to find their own unique way to Love and Unity.

I was blessed to be raised in a Catholic family that embodied the energy of a Loving Christ – one that welcomes all and loves all. Although, my awareness has expanded out beyond any one religion, the Teachings of Jesus are still at the center of a lot of my prayer and way of being. And sometimes when I am writing songs, a scripture or mantra from Jesus will come through.

The good news is that when it comes to music, it doesn’t really matter what I think or why I wrote something, it only matters what vibration ends up in the song and how you feel it. So, I encourage you to spend some time with these tracks and see what opens for you.

I am going to rest now and drink some tea.

Thanks again for tuning in and I will see you tomorrow for Day 11.

Day 9 Love Again and Highest Good

Day 9 has arrived and it also happens to be Sept. 9th.

Day 9 on 9/9. LOVE that alignment. What does the number 9 mean to you? For me, it has always meant completion. Something is completing for me, individually and collectively.

A completion doesn’t have to mean a dramatic end, it could be a very subtle internal shift. The great thing about life, consciousness and meaning is that we get to create it for ourselves. That’s right.

We are the creator of our own reality.

It’s amazing to me that on this day of completion, I am sharing two songs that are about love and how to remember love even in the face of loss or change or completion. Both of these songs were inspired by beautiful women that I loved. Both relationships changed and “ended” in the form they had been, however both these beings are forever in my heart and have forever changed me for the better.

In Love Again, I explore my whole experience with loss, not just romantic love but that early loss we may feel as children when we offer our heart in its purest form and someone else just doesn’t get it. Some of us are more sensitive than others and so this early experience can be marked deeply in our psyche even if the moment wasn’t really that big a deal in another’s reality.

And so, it really becomes our responsibility to love ourselves, acknowledge the truth of our experience and remember how to love again. Love bigger, love better, love with joy and risk even knowing that love can sometimes lead to loss.

In Highest Good, which I wrote in 2008 and recorded on Winds of Sinai, I was very inspired by the music of India Arie. (If you have never listened to her music, I recommend I Am Light)

A relationship that I thought was deeply spiritual and absolutely “meant to be” ended. The writing of this song was my practice of letting it go and allowing a bigger picture to be made known to me.

Since writing that song, my understanding of love and connection has matured greatly and I now truly believe that all relationships are reflections of our relationship with our self and that the end of any relationship is never a failure but rather an opportunity to go inside and reflect on who we are and what we are attracting into our lives.

I fly off to Ireland tonight to be at my spiritual home, Creacon Wellness Retreat and I am beyond grateful that I will be completing this 12 part essay series in that amazing vortex.

Thanks for tuning in and remember wherever you are, whatever you are experiencing, All is Well.

Nothing is here to hurt is.

Everything is here to awaken us to more of who we truly are.
