On The Bhakti Trail - July, 2010

Namaste Everyone,

Hope your summer has started off with joy... it certainly has with heat here in Philadelphia! We just finished a series of CD Release Kirtans culminating with a wonderful evening in the Philadelphia area last Saturday! This weekend we're off to Woodstock and Saratoga Springs, NY followed by a visit to Kripalu and New London, CT.

Meanwhile, I'd like to share a few happenings on the Bhakti Trail with all of you!!

1. Some Recent Interviews:

2. Just Added: Concert at The Tin Angel, August 19th!

For a while now I've wanted to offer an intimate concert of my devotional songs.
Well, that will take place at The Tin Angel, one of Philadelphia's premier acoustic cafes on Thursday, August 19th. I will have my band, the Beloveds joining me for this. The evening will feature songs from five of my CDs, some new compositions, and will be interlaced with chanting.
Here are the details...

3. Private Sessions:

A note to let you all know that this summer I will be offering private sessions in person and over the phone! Here's a description...

David’s private sessions assist you in going deeper into the devotional, meditative, and spiritual aspects of life. David’s gift is his ability to respond intuitively to your desire to deepen both the practice and expression of Love as an integrated way of life. David translates and personalizes ancient Yogic teachings as practical principles for spiritual transformation and to inspire greater joy, creativity and purpose in your daily life. The sessions, though intensive, are deeply nurturing and supportive with the highest consideration given to your individual needs.
