The quiet of suburban Philly is a refreshing contrast to the controlled, friendly chaos of Brooklyn ~ the wind in the trees and birdsong welcomed me here just a little while ago, and I’m delighted to be in the company of my dear friends Charlie and Joan. Soon, we’ll be heading out to Prana Das Yoga, the beautiful center owned by our friends Derek and Nadia. It’s been over a year since I last came to share Sound Medicine at Prana Das Yoga, and I’m looking forward to being back!
Last night was the opening night of this year’s Sound Medicine Tour, and though our crowd was small, it was a beautiful night. The Rakit Club is an eclectic, funky art space in an unassuming warehouse district, and if you just drove by, you’d likely never discover it. But just inside, amid the bright and colorful lights, artwork, and assorted collection of musical instruments, is a cozy space that welcomed me with gracious arms. We drifted in the deep space of singing bowls chiming, Koshi chimes carrying us back to unknown sweet spaces, and sweet, inspiring songs calling our hearts open to the depths of the spirit. At the end of the night, we all sat in a circle, sharing.
I feel like many loose ends were brought together… I hope I remember!
I realized how being still is *always* going to be work… there is no “storing it up!” We always have to be present in the moment anew.
I was able to process a lot of emotional stuff that I hadn’t been dealing with… tears flowed down my face all night!
I am so grateful for this work, and the beautiful people who I meet along the way!
Today, just before heading out of Brooklyn, my dear friend Neimah was so kind as to restring my 12 string guitar, giving her some much needed TLC ~ what a blessing, for sure, as it was LONG overdue! Lalita will be delighted tonight, and so will I!
Looking so forward to continuing to flow with the trail of blessings along the way, and to bring the blessings and prayers for peace and harmony from my heart to the hearts of others.
