Writings

        A true artist is a seeker, endlessly searching for the Soul in all of life's wondrous expressions.  We are inspired by the ancient Yogis and Mystics of India, whose search for ultimate Truth and meaning in existence flowered as the timeless traditions of India's philosophy, arts and music.  Following this tradition of Sadhana, spiritual and musical discipline for the past 10 years, we have immersed ourselves in culturing these higher ideals of spirituality and philosophy.  We aspire to expand our knowledge and integrate this ancient Wisdom from the East into an integrally creative and musical life.

Please give yourself time to read through these pages and be open.
