2013-yogathon-new-englandI am singing at the Cape Cod Chat House tonight and am splitting the bank with Yoga Reaches Out. After the recent events in Boston, I am so grateful to be gathering with the YOGA community of Boston and beyond to celebrate the power of LOVING ACTION. if you don’t know about the New England Yogathon yet. tune in baby. I will be singing at Gilette stadium on this Sunday while my friend and owner of Power Yoga of Cape Cod, Jill Abraham teaches yoga.

This is a dream come true and just one flower of many that has begun to bloom as a result of seeds I planted in early 2011.  We are always planting seeds. in every moment. so choose wisely and don’t let the events that are happening around you shift your focus for too long. love love love.

I am also SO HAPPY to be at the First Encounter Coffeehouse this Saturday night as a a part of a Celebration of local women songwriters.

More seeds have sown another trip out to Northern California from May 1-8, where will be leading a womens retreat with my good friend Andrea Spacek, as well as doing my first ever gig in Sacramento at The Coffee Garden.  I will also be playing again for Ryan Bailey at East Wind Yoga in Auburn, CA. What a gift to be oooommmmming coast to coast!

REMEMBER, we are always planting seeds in every moment. so choose wisely and don’t let events that are happening around you shift your focus for too long. love love love.

Isn’t it amazing what can happen in a year?
AMathewsonCD_W138_print.inddThis time last year I was in full on production mode working to get my CD 2012: Isn’t it Amazing? done in time for all the parties. March 22, 2012 was such a special night for me and all that attended. It was my intention to use that event at the Cape Cod Chat House (as well as events in NY and LA) to not only launch the new CD and celebrate but also to help birth a new vibration of love, peace, truth, right-conduct, & non-violence in myself and for all.

THANK YOU to all of you who have bought the CD, gave it away, and bought more. I have heard so many stories of people using the CD in powerful ways. If you have not yet shared your story or are willing to share it again, please do by commenting below.2012-04-13_19-44-16_498

I have now sung “May I be at Peace” in many different settings: yoga classes, coffeehouses, healing centers, school gyms, churches, next to the bed of a passing soul, at Creacon Lodge in Ireland, and for women retreats on both coasts. What a gift to be doing what I love with such generous listeners.

And I can’t wait to sing it for Yoga Reaches Out in April at Gilette Stadium and at the Wanderlust Festival in VT singing both times with Jill Abraham from Power Yoga of Cape Cod.

To celebrate this one year mark, I have lots of March happenings. Please come out and raise a glass or a voice to honor a truly AMAZING year. And if you know someone who might enjoy the CD, why not buy another copy or download it and spread the love.
amazing-66THANK YOU again for your support and love. Because of you, the songs keep expanding!!

May All Beings in All the Worlds Be Happy!!

Meditation Tonight 7pm.IMG_3177

That oscars show was a little weird, don’t you think? I mean I love musicals – I used to write them, but that felt more like the tony’s than the oscars. just sayin. Jennifer Hudson and Adele rocked it though. and congrats to Ben Affleck. Thanks for that true piece of wisdom: “It’s not about getting knocked down, it’s about getting up” or something like that….

It’s a full moon day. ENJOY it. and come to meditation tonight at 7pm. I was just with my Teacher Derek O’Neill and look forward to sharing the wisdom, love, and awakening I experienced with all of you. If we have time and it flows, I plan to remind us all how to draw the Prema Agni.

This sacred symbol which you can trace in the air or on someone’s back translates as the “Fire of Divine love”.  Join us TONIGHT at Sounding Still Wellness for our full moon meditation and learn about in person.

You can learn how to draw it yourself HERE.

Lots is happening in the next few months so be sure to scroll down and check it all out. There are still a few spots for the Retreat on Sunday – see below. (registration closes on Friday)

May your heart be filled with LOVE LOVE LOVE!

Alicia at winebar 2013

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.

new moon

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.
