Inform us a bit about your self… 

My two favorite issues in life are sound vibration and cats. I’m in my completely happy place when chanting/singing and cuddling a cat! I’ve been like this since I used to be a younger baby. In childhood I might sing songs from musicals  out within the woods and picture that the orchestra was about to burst out from the bushes!

I realised in my late twenties that what I used to be really searching for was unity and concord which was after I found kirtan/chanting from the guts. Presently I had a large coronary heart opening within the kirtan follow and an awakening which modified my life without end! I’ve by no means seemed again. Over the previous 32 years I’ve had the enjoyment of sharing this follow with individuals everywhere in the world, all with numerous backgrounds and tales. As you may most likely inform I like chanting!

How did your Kirtan journey start and what impressed it

My journey started in 1987 after I was in a darkish night time of the soul interval of my life the place nothing made sense and I used to be lured into the trail of habit between the ages of 14-27yrs. After I was 27 I used to be launched by a colleague/good friend to the trail of kirtan. She took me to my first satsang ( firm of the reality).After attending just a few instances I purchased a cassette tape (exhibits my age!) and started chanting together with it day by day. On the time I used to be an actor in between jobs. At some point the mantra of the mantra lifted my spirits so excessive and entered my soul so deeply that I had a religious awakening which took me to the depths and the heights of consciousness. The darkish highway of habit left me and I skilled visions and revelations that reworked my complete outlook on life without end. Progressively over time I left the world of performing and as a substitute grew to become a facilitator of pure voice work and  a pacesetter of kirtan.I n my e book The Therapeutic Energy of Chanting I candidly share my journey into  chanting and share downloadable chants in order that you can also start your individual kirtan journey.

‘Life entered the human physique by the assistance of music. However the reality is that life itself is music’ Hafiz

I like this quote as a result of it echoes my early childhood reminiscence of singing  within the woods and anticipating the good orchestra to ring out via the bushes. Life for me is the magic of sound and all that connects us as as One pulsation/ One Love.
