Om Namah Shivaya....
Well I'm back in the studio working on the new CD with Mira and Philippo and Chant choir and what fun we're having.  This photo is from a group of very shining faces and open hearts...its the 2008 Kirtan College Graduates.  This was the first Kirtan College and wow!!  It was truly a Grace filled experience.  We spent 8 days at beautiful Kashi Ashram in Florida, and went deep!  It had the intensity of a Yoga Teacher Training but in this case it was all Kirtan and Bhakti...Sanskrit pronunciations and translations, myths, teachings, practice, music clinics and lots and lots of singing.  The final evening the participants came together to offer a Kirtan for the Kashi community and they shined!!!  Keep an eye out all of you Bhaktas and fledgling Kirtan Wallahs for the next KC in February of 09'. 
That's all for now.  Love Love Love from the Big Bhakti Apple.  Dd-
