I am grateful to the Divine Mother for inspiring and guiding this project. Big appreciation to all the students with whom I have had the honor of sharing this music. Kudos to friend and teacher, Michael H. Cohen (www.MikeCohenKirtan.com), marvelous producer, John McVey and talented mastering engineer Michael Fossenkemper who lovingly and skillfully helped me shape this music into an exquisite production. Finally, I bow to all of the talented Colorado artists that supported this project so deeply. My heart is filled with gratitude for my girls who sang this songs with me and to my husband, my rock who I am eternally devoted to. Thank you all!
