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.

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.

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

Coming up on 10 years since we released Isn’t it Amazing? WOW!

It’s hard to believe we are here – November 2021. It was two years ago that I moved to Boston and began teaching full time while also continuing to perform and record music.

With the pandemic, much of my performing stopped and deep transformation began to unfold within. During that time I also turned 50 and ran my first 10K.

You can listen and watch me working on a new tune here inspired by October.

Now, here I am feeling a return to the very essence of who I am and why I am here. This essence also feels new and expanded – older and wiser, capable of holding more and worrying less. What a gift!

As I begin to record my 6th album, I wanted to invite you to two upcoming opporutinties to be with me, my vibration and some new songs.

First on 11/11, I will be doing a chanting event on ZOOM. It’s a pay what you can situation, though you will need to register to get the passcode. Check out the FB event here.

On 12/21/21 – Winter Solstice – I will be chanting live at Power Yoga of CapeCod with a limited number of guests at 15. If you don’t register in time or would rather not be in person you can also sign-up to livestream it.

This will be a true coming home for me – to my beloved Cape Cod and on the winter solstice, a time when I love doing events. The energy will be healing, uplifting and sacred. I would love to be with all that feel called – whether in person or online.

Enjoy this new moon in Scorpio. We have all been evolving at a rapid rate.

Keep letting go and allowing in the new.

Happy New Moon in October!

Enjoy this new song I am working on called Knowing. Are you following me yet on Youtube? How about Spotify or Instagram? As I record my new record I will be sharing the journey, so be sure to tune in.

May All Beings in All the Worlds be Happy and Free!

Happy new moon in Virgo! And now almost full moon in Pieces. ( Monday)

Sweet September indeed. I started this blog back on August 21. Hello “transition into fall, trying to catch my breath” reality. LOL. Here we are now at September 18.

I turned 50 a few weeks ago and I feel beyond blessed. Those of you who have already turned 50 know that it creates an opportunity for deep awareness and reflection.

I remember turning 40. That experience also invited me into a lot of reflection and, in fact, I created 40 chants in 40 days a practice which I shared on youtube leading up to my 40th birthday. That action that I took in a time of my life where I was really struggling in a lot of ways was truly transformative for me – both personally and professionally. I remember saying to myself (and anyone that would listen), “I am no longer doing anything that isn’t a part of my soul reason for being here. It was not the easiest decade I must admit, but it certainly was the most expanding and has led me to now – a time where I am truly happy and healthy.

What I didn’t fully realize at the time was that creating 40 and Fabulous was helping me lay a vibrational grid for the next ten years of my life. It led me to record my album 2012: Isn’t it Amazing and the founding of my business Sounding Still Wellness. It led me to chanting and singing in many yoga studios and healing festivals, where I taught meditation classes and facilitated lots of Rising Star Healing Sessions and initiations. It was a dream come true and it all began with my desire to heal and awaken myself. It did not always feel like a dream come true, but it was.

Now, here I am again looking forward at a new decade and I imagine I am laying a new vibrational grid, one that builds on all I have learned, both expanding and simplifying that which most resonates for me now.

What does this mean on a practical level and how can you look forward to tuning into me and my work?

  • I am recording my sixth album to be released in Spring 2022. (YAHOO!)
  • I am growing and developing my music teaching career at a resourced vibrant school called The Meadowbrook School of Weston, which provides me with community, financial flow and abundance and joy
  • I am becoming certified as a Transformational Life Coach in Awakening Feminine Power, which will allow me to serve even more women as they fully self-actualize here in this lifetime.
  • I am leading a retreat at Creacon Wellness Retreat Center in Ireland June 2022.

I can’t wait to share with you all the new songs I am writing and hear more about your journeys in person as I begin booking in person gigs again. If you are a yoga studio or healing center and would like me to come to your space, please don’t hesitate to reach out. I am also available for private house concerts.

Be gentle out there, trust your own path, and look for like-minded vibrations to play with.

All is Well.

How is everybody? I just wanted to update my site and give you some good vibes and good music to tune into.

Life is dynamic and constantly evolving. I am grateful for all the peace, love, and abundance in my life right now and I have the joy of being a teacher, so summer vacation is on!

I am in the process of remembering who I am as a singer/songwriter and performer – YAY! So please reach out, if you would like to book me – in a good old-fashioned venue or your back yard. (Here’s to lots of singing LIVE in 2022!!)

I have new songs and old songs and lots of love and inspiration to share, so tune in and let me know if you would like to experience me in the flesh in your yoga class or sacred/healing event.I am about to go back in to studio and record some new songs. I can’t wait!

In the meantime, Have you listened to 12 Rebirth lately? It’s a perfect record for right now.

Follow me Spotify and Instagram to be the first to know about the new music!

In the meantime, why not enjoy one of my most popular songs: I am the Ocean.

Love Love Love!
