The story of Sacred Journey.
I’ve been singing all my life but my true musical heart was untouched until I went to India. I spent blissful time in the ashram of my guru Sri Sri Ravi Shankar where I practiced yoga and meditation, danced and sang in the temple and learned how to find my true joyful self again. After a time I yearned for the sacred mountains and as I heard them calling I began my pilgrimage to the Himalayas. I fell in love with this divine healing land, the beautiful sounds, exotic instruments and classical mantras that touched my heart and helped me find inner peace and contentment. So profound was my experience that it inspired me to write Himalaya a song which later won the NCEIA Dolphin Music Award for best song adult contemporary. Since India my singing blossomed into a love affair with sacred mantra and Indian classical music and I created Cafe Mantra Music for yoga and meditation. This album is a celebration of the mantras I’ve learned and songs that have emerged over the past 10 years of my Sacred Journey.

As food nourishes your body, sacred sound feeds your soul.
For thousands of years the sages of ancient India have known of the spiritual science of sound, mantra yoga and Ayurveda and have passed on this wisdom to us in an unbroken lineage of the Vedic tradition.
The repetition of Sanskrit syllables and simple, yet inspired melodies invoke powerful healing vibrations that restore peace, harmony and vitality to our inner being and outer worlds, awakening us to the great spirit of love.
Café Mantra Music is created especially for relaxation, meditation and yoga. A beautiful blend of sacred chants, chilled beats and flowing melodies that drift over harmonium and tanpuri drones with deep hypnotic rhythms. Long continuous tracks paced at 60bpm (resting heart rate) infuse you with nourishing calming vibrations. This tempo naturally soothes your mind and nervous system without effort, giving you profound rest and rejuvenation.
Love It! Beautiful, spiritual and tranquil music to practice yoga to or just chill out.
I feel like my entire being received the most phenomenal tune up. It was a full body experience to meditate, listen and chant with Jo.
I’ve just had the best day ever learning the harmonium and chanting. Thank U Jo, I’m still buzzing! With Love Barbie
