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!

Happy Monday! Happy May 17, 2021!

It was a glorious weekend of weather on Cape Cod and like so many of us I am moving through many transitions and awakenings.

It’s funny to say that in a way because I have been consciously on a spiritual awakening path since 2005. As we know though, it never really ends, does it? And these last 18 months have helped bring a lot more to the surface – individually and collectively.

Two years ago I released 12 Rebirth to honor my healing and creative journey and if you have not listened to it yet, I highly recommend it. Want to sink into a feeling of Authentic Joy and longing? Try Moments of Bliss. Want to feel supported as you face a new big change? Try Walk You Way On Through. Want to get in the mood for a much more open and happy summer by the sea? Try I am the Ocean

This summer I turn 50 and although I can feel how much growth I have had over the last decade, I am still learning how to love, lose, love again, prioritize my own well-being, realize my full creative potential, and serve others at the highest vibration. In some ways, I have made so much progress and in others I still feel stuck in patterns that just don’t seem to want to shift. Can you relate?

What I know is that everything is easier when I keep my heart open. This is my practice going forward. Self-compassion. And compassion for all other beings that choose to receive.

I still remember my mom saying to me in the last few months of her life with such wisdom and awareness, “Just keep opening your heart”. I am still working on it mom and even though you haven’t been in physical form for the past 14 years, I know your Spirit has been with me and many others this whole time.

May I be at Peace, May my heart remain open, May I awaken to the Light of my own true nature, May I be healed, May I be a Source of healing for all beings.

Tomorrow is the official holiday in the Unites States honoring the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King. I have so many mixed feelings and not many words that feel necessary. I usually share the song I wrote in the summer of 2016 called Freedom is an Inside Job at this time.

It feels more right though to share this classic from Sam Cooke originally released in 1964.

Some songs feel sacred to me. This is one of them.

May sacred songs of love and truth and justice and peace and unity rise up for all of us as we continue to walk forward imagining a better future.

Madam Vice President Kamala Harris, thank you for being you.

May the Light of all Lights be upon you and all those you serve.

This time of year I usually share my song Be The Light. I love this song and this recording and the video I made in 2019. During this time of the shortest day here in North America, the idea of Being the Light really resonates for me. Many cultures have rituals this time of year that remind us of Light even in dark times – whether literal or figurative.

This year, however, I am hearing a new message: Be You.

And in Being You, we become a better Us.

How is this different from Be the Light? For me, it is the practice of holding the paradox. What if the amount of so-called darkness and light is exactly as it should be. What if no one or even the world needs me to “be the light?” What if what we all need and what the world needs is for each of us to take time to really KNOW ourselves and then practice being That with courage, clarity, love and joy.

What if we all spent less time trying to convince others of how they should be and really got to know ourselves on a deeper level. Through this we become more open to receiving new people in our lives that also know themselves more deeply and we open to co-creating NEW experiences, NEW systems, NEW villages and NEW moments that feel authentic, life-giving, inclusive and harmonious.

These are some of the things I have been thinking about as 2020 comes to a close. I will be chanting on Sunday (tomorrow) Dec 20, 2020 at 5pm on Zoom. I would love for you to join me.

EMAIL me here if you would like the Zoom information. You can also make a donation of $10-20 through PayPal or Venmo and I will send you the link.

My prayer for myself and for all of us is that we take the time and have the courage to go deep deep inside right now allowing ourselves to know (yet again) who we truly are and how we may best share that vibration with others.

If you, like me, are feeling something new coming but not quite sure what it is, while also grieving for a sense of things lost – whether named or not, know that YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

All is Well.

I have lots of music that can support you, wherever you are on your journey. Walk your Way on Through from 12 Rebirth is always a favorite for times of transition.
