My New Release: Healing

I recently blogged about new music, well here it is! I am so thrilled to share with you my new single “HEALING”. It was entirely produced in Beijing, China at Prosoul Studios! What a joy it was to create this piece with my new producer, Jarome Matthew. I hope you all enjoy it and share it. Here are the words of “Healing” (Baha’i Writings): Thy name is my healing, o my God and remembrance of Thee is my remedy. Nearness to me is my hope and love for Thee is my companion. Thy mercy to me is my healing and my succor in both this world and the world to come. Thou verily art the All-Bountiful, the All-Knowing, the All-Wise. So it’s a Tucson sound, sung by an Iranian-Austrian girl, who lives in China, produced by a Canadian guy and accompanied on the guitar by a guitarist from Cuba . . . It’s a small world indeed ☺ It is dedicated to the healing of all humanity from the illness of greed, violence and love for power; to all the children in the world whose hearts are broken from the loss of their parents to war, illness and starvation; to all people with devastating diseases and their families, to all those who live in states of being, not worthy of human dignity and to each and every one of you who desires the betterment and works for the healing of this world we live in.

Of New Music and Healing

Living in a radically new place, as I have been doing with my family this last year, has invited me to see things very differently.  Many previously automatic decisions have been replaced by new strategies. And so I have also decided to take a fresh look at how my music is being published. Instead of a whole album, I’m going to come out with music . . . one single at a time! This first single is titled:  HEALING. I am really excited to share it with you on 12 November, 2014! There were a few songs left in my heart from our Tucson days and somehow they still needed to be shared, even though I am physically far away from that place. This new single is one of those. So it’s a Tucson sound, sung by an Iranian-Austrian girl, who lives in China, produced by a Canadian guy and accompanied on the guitar by a guitarist from Cuba . . . It’s a small world indeed The melody was inspired by my sweet husband, who himself is a wonderful healer. He is also a dedicated fan of Country/Western music, pleading for years for me to write/sing something in his favorite style, so one day I thought to myself: it would have to be a healing song! To add to the whole picture, a beautiful artist friend, on her own healing path, gifted me her artwork to be used for the music cover. I feel so blessed to have her beautiful work as part of mine. As much as the musical style is particular, the content is universal and common to all of humanity. It is about the yearning to heal. It is about the yearning for wholeness and how that wholeness lies in our spiritual essence, our connection to the Divine! This piece is a dedication to all those who yearn for healing. Whether dedicated to our whole planet that is struggling on so many levels, or groups of people and individuals, this prayer was sung with the full conviction and passion that healing IS possible. I dedicate this song to the healing of all humanity from the illness of greed, violence and love for power; to all the children in the world whose hearts...

This is what you will find in this newsletter: • What is Yoga Therapy? – a very short personal summary • What exactly happens in a Yoga Therapy session? • Overview of classes with brief descriptions – new class ! I. What is Yoga Therapy? You are all students of yoga and very much aware of the benefits that yoga has brought into your life. Next to the physical benefits of greater flexibility and strength in your body, you have probably become aware of other more subtler sensations within you, like a sense of peacefulness and relaxation after practice, the awareness and connection of breath in lessening the effects of stress, the concept of equanimity and balance that we can draw upon in difficult times in our lives, and the reality that our essential nature is spirit. All of these insights bring us closer to the understanding of ourselves, that we are so much more than just this physical body, much more than just our thoughts and feelings, but a sum of different elements culminating in our true essence. Little by little, the lessons of yoga class begin to show up in our lives, and more...

New music video release “True Lover”!

Hi, just letting you know that my new music video, titled “True Lover”, is out! You can check it out here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yZJ0ka_1hZc The powerful words of this piece are taken from the writings of Baha’u’llah, the Founder of the Baha’i Faith and the beautiful music was written by Grant Hindin Miller (New Zealand)! The song was lovingly arranged by Daniel Rubin (Austria). The video was filmed in the gorgeous city of Budapest, Hungary, a country I was lucky to call my home for a year. It was filmed and edited by a very talented Nadji Hedjazi and thoughtfully directed by Ajang Farid (Hungary). I look at it as a meditation on mystical love, the journey to the true Beloved. Below you will find the text again and its translation into German. A Spanish and Hungarian translation will follow soon Enjoy and feel free to share! “O SON OF JUSTICE! Whither can a lover go but to the land of his beloved? And what seeker findeth rest away from his heart’s desire? To the true lover reunion is life, and separation is death. His breast is void of patience and his heart hath no peace. A myriad lives he would forsake to hasten to the abode of his beloved.” – Baha’u’llah “O SOHN DER GERECHTIGKEIT! Wohin kann ein Liebender gehen ausser ins Land seines Geliebten? Und welcher Suchende fände Ruhe fern der Sehnsucht seines Herzens. Für den aufrichtig Liebenden ist Vereinigung Leben und Trennung Tod. Seine Brust kennt keine Geduld, sein Herz keinen Frieden. Tausend Leben gäbe er hin, um zur Wohnstatt seines Geliebten zu eilen.”- Baha’u’llah Share...
