On The Bhakti Trail - April, 2010
Mira and I just returned from a magical visit to the Sivananda Ashram in the Bahamas. We were part of an Interfaith Devotional Music Festival called ‘On the Wings of Ecstacy’. It included some truly gifted musical and devotional offerings such as chanting with Russill Paul and Reema Datta, Gospel with Ken Whiteley, Sufi Music with Davod Azad and Kaballah Kirtan with Yofiya. It was simply wonderful…as was the weather and ocean!
And so life goes on… with lots of good things happening this spring.
In April, Mira and I will take some quiet time with just a few dates in Ohio, Pittsburgh, Virginia and a couple of local kirtans at the end of the month in the Philadelphia area. I’ve included theses dates below. May begins with Kirtan College (2nd to 7th) and Spring Ecstatic Chant (7th to 9th) at Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY.
