Celebrate the Spring Equinox with a free track from my new CD Spring into Mindfulness!
By Jahna Perricone
I have always loved the sound of the guitar; from that alone I was looking forward to hearing Shakti Guitar. Yet, as I listened, it became clear that I was hearing much more than mere guitar artistry. McNamara’s approach to this instrument is based on the traditional Indian musical form called Raga, which means “that which colors the mind.”

I am writing this blog because I want to share with you my new found freedom! I've been a singer for as long as I can remember and have pursued everything vocal and musical for most of my life. But I kept hitting up against roadblocks. Not so much professional but personal ones that affected my professional flow. When I got quiet and listened, I realized that worries and concerns were keeping me stuck in fear. They were getting in the way of any hope of true focus and well-being. This train wreck of thinking led me to Mindfulness Meditation, how to practice it and teach it... I'm so glad I did!!
So this is what this blog is going to be about: Mindfulness and how it supports my life in every way! I hope to delve into it's effects on my creative expression, thinking patterns, break-throughs and general sense of well-being. I might even share a little more:-)
I hope you enjoy the read and perhaps garner some hope as we traverse this thing called life together. Please feel free to share your thoughts!
Love and breath,
