Our souls collided to create this body of mantras in the hopes of inspiring, rejuvenating, and empowering others in their own yoga classes and meditations.
On a fall day in 2014, Evan Goldman found himself in a yoga class taught by Nicole Doherty. At the end of the class, Nicole turned down the lights and sang a sacred healing mantra, an experience Evan would never forget. Deeply inspired by Nicole’s voice and the power of the mantra, Evan approached Nicole about the prospect of working together and thus began this exciting collaboration.
A mantra is an instrument of the mind, a sound or vibration that you can use to enter a deep state of meditation. We are all made of sound and light and so in chanting these mantras, we are remembering who we really are. Mantras inspire gratitude, happiness, compassion, kindness, peace, beauty, wisdom, and truth.
We chose “AMRITA” as the name of our album as it means “immortality” and is often referred to as nectar for the soul, Atman, in ancient texts. It is our hope that these musical mantras will provide nectar for your soul, and help lead you to “Self Realization,” the recognition of your own immortality.
On a very personal note, I’m excited that we got to complete this project for the labor & birth of our son! I can’t wait to play these for him![button align=”right” link=”http://nicoleandevan.bandcamp.com/album/amrita” target=”blank” round=”yes” size=”normal” color=”blue” flat=”no” ]Download at Bandcamp[/button]
