From Darkness to Light: A Musical Journey of Awakening
This mantra album is inspired by the awakening of the matriarch, feminine power and the self-sovereignty within all women and men.
This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Thu, July 26 2018 4:28 PM UTC +00:00.
We have a mission. So sacred, laying so deep within our being its victory seems more powerful than any force we can imagine.
Yogi Bhajan said... "Until this Earth stops revolving, if those born of a woman don’t know how to respect woman, there shall be no peace."
Millions of us have joined together in the realization we need to love and lift up the mother. That mother we all have inside us. Mothers, sisters, and daughters, need also our fathers, brothers, lovers and sons to join us.
This album is a musical journey of the awakening of primal power and the voice of the feminine all over the world. Long have we kept silent, and struggled in darkness.
Together we can heal...Find your voice with me.

The album is a testament to my journey of healing the darkest moments of my past and my self. A journey that has broken me, taken away everything I thought was mine, to give back to me why I am and a greater purpose.
This album is a space of healing, hope, and energy for that intimate process to take place. Find refuge in this music.
It is my honor to have been given a gift I can share. One that allows me to share the beauty I see in the world, through my own expression.
Each class I teach, each time I sing my heart prays for all beings to find truth, love, and realize their strength in the face of adversity.

As the journey begins I will be announcing more amazing musicians...
"So long as those born of woman do not respect woman, there cannot be peace of mind, national peace, or peace in the Universe. So long as man does not have reverence for the primal force, his mental attribute will still want to exploit woman, reduce her, abuse her, and be angry with her. Every male achievement will be empty." - Yogi Bhajan
I would like to thank everyone who has supported me. I could not do this without you. All your kind wishes and love have built a bridge for me.
If you had asked me a five years ago if I would be singing, and writing music I would have sunk down and thought it never possible. Each breath has been a journey to this moment.
Music has the power to uplift and transform. My intention is to create music that heals even the deepest wounds and unseen hurts.
It is with love and prayer I share this music. It is an honor. Thank you. Sat Nam
I not only write the music, co-produce, but also do all my own design work and marketing. So your support is very appreciated. Every share and comment humbles me!

Risks and challenges
As I successfully completed my first album, so this too will be. We are aiming for an early Spring wide release, with the music being shared with the Kickstarter backers as soon as we are finished in winter. No issues or challenges to this goal are foreseen.
$9,000 is the minimum required for productions fees. It will be a blessing to raise beyond this amount to further cover musician and marketing costs, and widen the scope of the album.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
