Chanting to the Open Heart
I have been an authentic and avid yogi for two decades as well as enjoying careers as a retreat host and a professional musician.
During my amazing journey through life, I discovered kirtan and spent several years in the immersion of yoga study and philosophy as well as zen meditation before becoming a retreat host. I have since developed a deep and devoted kirtan practice, utilizing many of the chants from the Temple of the Universe, plus influences from Krishna Das, Jai Uttal, Paramahansa Yogananda, Seminole Indian, Hawaiian, sanskrit and English spirituals, as well as original chants of my own.
As both a chanting leader and meditation guide, my singular goal is to unite kindred voices in spirit and bliss. Thanks to a Master’s degree in Oceanography/Ecology, I make a great hiking guide as well!
