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!!

IMG_8071I have written many songs about the magic of September. Perhaps because my birthday is in August or I have been a perennial student, September often feels like the new year to me.

I wrote September Again when I was around 22, having just lived in Ptown for a while and was facing a sense of who am I without the structure of school?

I wrote Sweet September just after turning 40, returning to Cape Cod, and completing 40 days of chanting that led me to my current career of music and transformation.

This September, I don’t feel a song coming, but rather an epic musical. It’s kind of a scary feeling because I have written a musical before and I know what it takes to complete it and get it up on stage. Those fans of Love according to Luc may remember it from way back in 2004.

As the new multidimensional musical ruminates in my creative psyche I will be singing and touring often in the fall, winter, and spring, so stay tuned and keep listening.New Moon Yoga Workshop & Chanting
May this new moon bring you a TRUE SENSE of newness. May you awaken right NOW in this moment and create all you know you are. JOIN ME TONIGHT at Innerglow Yoga in Mashpee for a NEW MOON YOGA FLOW with Kristen O’Toole Yoga 6-7:30pm.

Let’s ROCK this September. love love love

IMG_5240Wow. Another full moon in August has come and gone. I don’t know about you but this past weekend on Cape Cod was just perfect. Full Moon. Hot Sun. Cool air. Beach time. Live music. Family and Friends. As Mark Erelli writes in his song August, “A fool would ask for more” (ps. check out his new upcoming release Milltowns on Sept. 9)

This time last summer I can’t say I felt as good as I do now. In fact, I had just finished 30 days of antibiotics for Lyme Disease and was not feeling very inspired in general. Isn’t it amazing how our lives go through cycles. The longer I live and practice spiritual teachings I have received, the more I allow this to happen with ease and grace.

Want to open yourself to some of these teachings, not to mention connection, community, fun, and BLISS? JOIN US this weekend at Love Yoga Fest. I will be opening the day on Saturday at 7am with a chanting of the Gayatri Mantra, among other chants and then signing again on the Main Stage at 5:00pm. I will also be at a healing table with Kristen O’toole offering the Prema Agni & Rising Star Energy Healings Systems. This energy was taught to us by Derek O’Neill, who will be in Boston on Nov. 9. Stop by, learn more, and FEEL THE LOVE.

LYF-LOGO-1This weekend, right in Aselton Park Hyannis yoga teachers from all over the Cape and New England will be offering their joy, wisdom, experience, and fun for you to play, frolic, explore, and awaken. What a gift to Cape Cod!! I remember just a couple years ago we were doing yoga on the Green and now here we are!! Thank you Love Live Local Ladies and Annika for birthing this dream I had imagined way back then. May All Beings in All the Worlds be Happy and may CAPE COD lead the way.

Om Nimah Shivaya!

AND SATURDAY FULL MOON
Cape Cod Chat House 7-9

As some of you may know Jayajagatambe is a big hit with children. I am not sure what it is, but all the kids love this track. And I don’t know about you, but I trust kids. you can’t fake it with kids. If they are not feeling the music, that’s usually a sign the music doesn’t have it. You can LISTEN to Jayajagatambe anytime you want on Reverbnation and why not become a fan?  Come to the Chat House on Saturday night and hear one of my guitar students help me play JAYJAGATAMBE. I am super excited for him and super excited for me. I will also be playing lots of good tunes to kick off ths summer right for all of Cape Cod! May we all be peaceful, happy, and prosperous!

album7The sun is shining on Cape Cod and it feels good! After returning from sunny California, I am so grateful for this warm transition. If you are looking for a last minute gift for mom, my 2009 album Winds of Sinai is a great gift. It was an offering to my mother and the Divine Mother.

And please join me on May 17 at First Parish Brewster as I honor MOTHERS everywhere while chanting with Fugan. it will be a truly blessed and powerful evening.
