This weekend: Swaha Prodcutions Farewell with the Flying Mystics

This weekend: Swaha Prodcutions Farewell with the Flying Mystics

John-Flying-MyticsThis Saturday, Sep. 26th at 7PM, I’m honored to play one of the final Swaha Productions events and open for the Flying Mystics, an amazing instrumental band that you’ll be no doubt blown away by if you haven’t seen them already.

Check out this great description of the group from the Facebook event:

“The Flying Mystics are an instrumental trio based out of Atlanta. the synergistic sound these three accomplished musicians create according to writer Glenn H. Mullin is “Visionary and esoteric while remaining sensually intense and spiritually powerful”.

Shamanic journey, sonic healing, higher consciousness and world music are common descriptions of the unique cultural fusion of sounds this instrumental trio creates.

Whether playing temples, festivals, cultural events, yoga studios or house concerts, Flying Mystics appeal to the spiritual roots of the world, creating music that reminds us of our mystical origins.”

If you haven’t already picked up your tickets for the show this weekend, make sure to grab them at www.swahaproductions.com.

See you there!!!

My Biggest Project Ever!

My Biggest Project Ever!

I just sent out the newsletter to make the official public announcement and I’ll share it here with you as well:

I’m excited, nervous, and a little emotional all at the same time:)

After 6 years, my debut solo album is extremely close to being released and I couldn’t be more grateful.

Now this is it, the crucial moment.

I’ve just launched a Kickstarter project that is all about spreading limitless love & light through the release of this album around the world (the video will give you the full story).

And guess what?!

If we get enough momentum today, there’s a good chance we can get on the front page of Kickstarter which will give it a big boost!

But I need your help TODAY so we can keep this momentum going and hopefully get us featured by Kickstarter (which would be amazing).

CLICK HERE  to watch the video and see my “interesting” rewards:)

I’m really proud of them, please check it out.

I am truly grateful for all of your love and support. Let’s do this together!

P.S. I know you’re super busy but it would be amazing if you watched this now (takes like 3 minutes)

From the Road: Limitless Love & Light Tour – Part 2

From the Road: Limitless Love & Light Tour – Part 2

Thank you all once again for the overwhelming support and love you’ve shown my family and I on our Limitless Love & Light tour.  As I explained in the Part 1 blog post, we had an amazing first leg of the tour and we just kept being blessed from there.

This is part 2 of the tour post, but let me cover a couple of things I left out about our time in St. Augustine, FL:

First, during our outing to see Disney’s/Pixar movie Inside Out,  Johnny schooled us on what it was all about on the way there… he even made up a song about it and Kathy joined in… lol:

Second, we hung out with our friend, Lynn Pouliot, on our last night in St. Augustine and she showed us around Old Town (sharing some history of the sites we visited). We stopped in for some great deserts along the tour and really enjoyed our time with her.

The next day, we left our friends Derrick  & Stephanie’s home to head to  Crystal Rivers, FL near Ocala.  We shot a thank you message to all our friends in St. Augustine on the way:

 

Rob-AmandaWe arrived safely in Crystal Rivers at our friends, Rob & Amanda Mathews‘ home where we set up for another donation based house concert that same evening.

Jolie was a bit under the weather due to an ear infection, so while she rested up that night with Johnny, we had a fun and “revealing” set where I shared a lot of my personal journey and songs to a wonderfully receptive crowd.

Rob-Amanda-freindsThe evening turned out be the most financially abundant night of the entire tour, so big thanks to Rob, Amanda, Mike, Chelsea and all their friends for the amazing generosity!

During my set, I quoted Maya Angelou’s famous quote – “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” – and someone put a card with that exact quote in the donations.  Whoever put the gave us the card didn’t identify who they were, so I’ll just say thank you to them here. It was a cool surprise!

We had a great talk with several of the guests after the show about life, sharing stories and insights on the lessons we learned, and I played one more song before we all called it a night.


The next morning,  Johnny, Kathy, Rob, Amanda, Michael, Chelsea Rioux and I all went out on the lake in their two boats. Unfortunately, Jolie still wasn’t feeling that well, so she couldn’t join us.

Crystal Lake on  boat This was Johnny’s first time out on a boat and we all had such a great time.


At one point, we headed to the natural springs where the water was much colder.

Johnny eventually convinced me to dive in, which is a big deal b/c I’m NOT a big fan of cold water… lol.
CrystalSprings

He dove in after me and we explored the springs further before heading back to warmer waters.

We all packed lunches and stayed out for as long as we could and then came back to the house to pack and head out for the next location.

Thanks to Rob, Amanda and Mike for sharing  about the overall experience:

Next, we headed to Orlando, FL on the 4th of July to stay with our dear friend, Joy Steelman.   On the way, we encountered something pretty awesome –  a rare and magical double rainbow:

Once we arrived at Joy’s in Orlando, we ate some great deserts that Joy’s mother made and I played a few songs for Joy’s mother and her friends while Kathy took Jolie to the hospital…  her ear infection had become too painful.

Fortunately, the hospital gave Jolie some medicine that seemed to help and we took her to an ENT the next weekday to help get rid of the rest of the problem.

Christ Church Orlando shotsThat Sunday, I played at Christ Church Unity in Orlando and it was a  great service.

The message was so in line with everything I’d been realizing during the tour and the church band did a great job playing to my songs!

We were also well received and supported, so our sincere thanks to the Christ Church Unity Orlando community for so much love!

That’s it for now.  I’ll post another update – part 3 – soon to wrap up the first leg of our tour.  If you haven’t signed up for the online community yet, make sure to sign up here and I’ll keep you posted on the next blog, shows, speaking events and updates on the next album and book.
