My 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

Happy Mothers Day to all – A little late. I was in Boston this past weekend participating in an Autism and Music Conference at Boston Conservatory. Along with the fabulous North End meal, the weekend was truly nourishing.
And now I am off to help my cousin perform her powerful play SICK.
I love May. I love this time of constant visible growth in nature and the absolute blooming of green green green and pink and yellow and all the colors. IT’s also nice this year that my inside experience matches the nature outside me, as I feel like I too am rebirthing and blooming again. This is not always this case. we don’t always feel in sync with the nature around is and that’s ok.
May 17 will mark the 7th year anniversary of my mom’s passing from this earth. 7 years. It feels like a blink of an eye and multiple lifetimes. And isn’t that how time feels these days? both compressed and expanded. It’s amazing if we are aware, open, empowered, and excited to serve ourselves and those around us, then we are able to flow with all that is. I am grateful for every moment of the last 7 years in which I experienced the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. I am grateful for it all. In deep gratitude and honoring of my mother, Ellen, myself, and our journey together, I am sharing this song and video I created while living in Egypt in 2010.
We are all mothers in our own way. THANK YOU for all you are and all you create. Happy FULL MOON tomorrow.
love love love
So here we are. the first new moon of 2013. It’s been an interesting ride hasn’t it? Dec 21, 2012 came and went and here we are. life is just about the same – or is it?
In 2013, I will be blogging consitently on the new and full moon. why? because I LOVE the moon and LOVE the cycles it has and what it teaches me about my own cycles. We are human – a part of nature – and we have cycles.
On Dec. 21, 2012 a 26,000 year old cycle ended and a new one began. This is a scientific fact, not a woo hoo spiritual prophecy. If you believe in science, you must acknowledge how much has changed for Humanity and our planet over the past 30 years and that we (whether we like or not), must change along with it.
Change: this is often a hard thing for us humans. In the Buddhist tradition, we are taught, NOTHING IS PERMANENT. Try telling that to this lingering cough I have had for almost 5 weeks. YES, perhaps like you, I have been navigating life while also having a cold. It has reminded me to rest, go slow, be kind to myself and others and TRUST, that no matter how I feel – physically or emotionally that too will pass. Thank you lingering cough for enlightening me (once again!)
If you are going through changes, experiencing loss, confusion (a lingering cough), or just find yourself feeling like you could use something new, please consider calling upon me through Sounding Still Wellness at our new location right in Barnstable Village. A Rising Star Healing Session, Voice lesson, or Meditation Class could be just what the Doctor ordered.
And as always, I hope to see you at Chat House on the Cape or in some yoga studio for some live musical love. Happy Happy new moon! Create Love. Enjoy this song I recently posted on youtube.
