Back To The Front

Every once & awhile a chant will follow me around for weeks, and sometimes it suggests a theme for the podcast.  The chant haunting me lately is “Amma” from Larisa Stowe & Shakti Tribe’s “Reaching In”.  Amma means mother–and it’s especially poignant for me this week as my youngest son leaves for college.  I know it’s the season, it’s time, and it’s good for him & me both–we have bright, sparkling futures awaiting us.  Still, it’s a passage that’s both sad & happy, and one that I need to feel, grieve & release.  The chants I chose for the podcast this week soothe me on a deep level, and it was a blessing to be able to sing them with dear friends on Sunday night.  Kirtan heals all.  Namaste.
