Cafe Mantra’s first CD ‘PEACE’ was created with the intention to bring just as the name suggests… peace, peace and more peace. The mantras chosen were the first I was given by my teacher, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar and it still fills me with a sense of calm and connection to spirit whenever I play it.
PEACE blends together ancient sanskrit mantras and soothing sacred sounds poured gently over chilled beats. It feels joyous with a softness to my singing. These are the feelings I have toward my teacher and the gifts he has given me through meditation and spiritual practices like chanting.
When recording this CD, I found a recipe that I now use throughout the Cafe Mantra range. This formula is the use of Bija (seed) mantras sang over hypnotic rhythms paced at 60 beats per minute (resting heart rate) The seed mantras penetrate deeply into the psyche and speak to the soul, whilst the rhythms easily and naturally rest the mind and nervous system. This is the relaxing recipe that rests your mind, soothes your soul and brings PEACE to your entire being.
