Radiant Heart Sound Experience
Join me for a deeply relaxing afternoon of sacred music, mantra chanting and sound healing experience.
I'm celebrating my new album Radiant Heart which blends the rich history of Indian classical mantra and soulful original songs. This music is a culmination of my 10 year journey into the heart of sacred mantra that has set my heart free.
I will be singing songs from my album and then I'll introduce you to raga singing. A raga is an Indian classical musical scale that takes the mantra to a deeper level. When you sing these beautiful sounds, your mind easily lets go and you experience inner peace which is your true nature. The deep gentle sounds and hypnotic rhythms infuse you with nourishing and calming vibrations. Rhythms paced at 60 beats per minute (resting heart rate) soothes your mind and nervous system without effort, giving you profound rest and rejuvenation.
Come chant, relax, meditate, go deep and feel the bliss! Then have yummy chai and treats with our lovely likeminded community!

What Is A Raga?
A raga is an Indian classical musical scale that takes mantra to a deeper level. Each raga carries spiritual energy and has a unique sound, quality and action on the mind.You will hear beautiful ragas from the 15th century which destroy impurities in the mind. The power of raga is held within every note and carries the vibrations of mantra deep into your soul.
What Is A Mantra?
Mantra is a Sanskrit word. ‘Man’ means mind and ‘tra’ means to train, so a mantra is a tool that is used to train the mind. Sanskrit is a spiritual language that speaks to your soul. The mantras are sound vibrations containing healing intelligence called prana which is our guiding life force. When we chant, we activate healing energy that soothes the nervous system and focuses the mind.
When thoughts get stuck in a pattern of negativity like worrying about the future or regretting the past, mantra is used to disconnect from those thoughts, away from stress, guiding you back to the present moment of inner peace which is your true nature. Deep within, we are always peaceful and loving.It’s constant thought and emotional patterns, playing the same negativity over and over again, that takes us away from this pure state of peace. Energy flows where your mind goes, so if you are focused on stress, you will feel stressed.If your mind is pointed toward a mantra, you train the mind to relax.When you are relaxed, your mind gains clarity to deal with challenges and wisdom comes forth. When you listen to mantra chanting and make the sound with your own voice, the vibrations are absorbed by your body and enliven every cell.This becomes a self soothing meditation practice that has healing benefits.
Calming, meditative, relaxing, and uplifting are some ways people describe Cafe Mantra Music because they have experienced the healing energy of sacred sound. You see, my music is not only beautiful, but scientifically created to harmonise your whole being … your mind, body and soul.
Are you experiencing stress, anxiety, fear, illness, uncertainty? If so, this negative energy impacts your mind and subtle frequencies to go out of harmony, out of tune. Much like a guitar that needs tuning regularly, so do our minds. Mantra music awakens the vibrations of peace that are deeply embedded in you, and you come back in tune with nature and feel relaxed, content and happy. Magic!
How Is Cafe Mantra Music Unique?
Cafe Mantra Music uses a special tempo of 60 beats per minute which is the resting heart rate. Just by listening, your subtle energies come into alignment with this innate rhythm. This tempo coupled with the healing vibrations of Sanskrit mantras, soothes your mind and nervous system without effort. All !you need do is listen, let go and allow the music to take you on its healing journey. Easy!
Everything I create follows the ancient Vedic sciences of yoga, mantra and Ayurveda. As a qualified Ayurvedic practitioner, my knowledge and experience couples with a deep devotion to bring a richness, depth and spiritual energy to my music, teaching and cooking with the intention to help you nourish your entire being.
Blessings for your peace, health and happiness!
