I am a lucky girl. I got to start 2 0 1 8 with a retreat by Colette Baron-Reid at Kripalu, in the lovely snow capped Berkshires of Massachusetts. Sunrise and sunset yoga, amazing food, and amazing new friends. We had daily meditations, that were accompanied by glass singing bowls. This was my first experience with the bowls, and it was incredible. The vibrations really enter every part of you, and soothe even the most frantic of monkey minds. I realized after that experience how deeply I miss playing an actual piano vs. a keyboard. Resonance. That beautiful soft rumbling that meets my voice in the air, swirling together like smoke. This year I will bring back the resonance, full force.
