That last month flew by, and as of this writing, it's still summer in New Orleans for at least another week. (92 degrees today!)
Our new time slot on the radio show (102.3FM WHIV) is going well and we're in the midst of the FALL FUND DRIVE for the station; I'm sure you're very familiar with this tune wherever you listen to your Community-Supported Public Radio.
The station is having an open house event this Saturday (tomorrow!) at the station - 2762 Orleans Ave. Come on by and see the station, meet the DJ's and find out what this station is about (Human Rights and Social Justice!).
We'll be playing a few tunes with station founder/bass player, Dr. MarkAlain Dery.
In other news, we're working on the Surya Revelers (yoga/mantra) branch of our creative life as well - We've started filming yoga/meditation sessions for an upcoming YouTube channel! We'll send out the info on that when it's live.
We're also preparing for our tour through Tennessee and North Carolina, which includes a Yoga/Kirtan workshop at Knoxville Kundalini Yoga Center, and an amazing House Concert in Canton, NC (just outside of Asheville).
Lots of adventures coming up in the coming months, both locally and regionally....if you have friends in Knoxville or Asheville, share the events if you feel inspired to support the journey...the people help make the miles and we're so grateful for the love.
