Namaste Counsel: “Kirtan Music For My Soul: Bhakti Fest”
For the last few days, I wake up with music in my head. The melody is carried by a soothing male voice. It’s followed by a powerful feminine wave of harmony. Each morning it’s a hypnotic chant.

But the same end result that epitomizes what I try to balance in my life: clean, tranquil harmony, with full-throttled energy.
