Rick has played and toured for over 18 years with the likes of Dave Stringer, David Newman, Girish, Donna DeLory, Sat Kartar, Saul David Raye and many other well-loved artists.

Kirtan is an ancient practice of call and response mantra singing. It’s fun, deep, and enlivening. The mantras evoke powerful archetypes within to heal and nurture us.
Gratitude is the focus of the cacao ritual we open our events with. Gratitude for our bodies, each other, the earth, the air, the sun and everything that nurtures our lives.
We use cacao which is organic, fair-trade from Tanzania, acquired through our friends at www.fireflychocolate.com. It’s farmed and processed for ceremonial purposes by a culture that believes in it’s spiritual properties. It is chocolate in its purest form from which we make a delicious drink. We all drink together to open the kirtan. The effect is palpable as it facilitates our hearts opening into group mantra practice.
