|DEVA'S NEW CD: PASSWORD|
|Deva, Miten and Manose have been hard at work, creating their latest release, Password. It will be available only at concerts during DP&M's European tour, and will be launched worldwide this September. It marks an exciting new direction in their unique blending of East and West, embedding the extraordinary energy carried by ancient mantras into a rich fusion of sound and silence.
They recorded the album at the end of 2010, coming off the road and directly into the studio in Copenhagen, Denmark - carrying with them new compositions and all the energy of a year filled with love and inspiration. The result is extra-ordinary... this time around, Deva's golden voice, guided by The Essence producer, RajRishi, glides across a landscape created by some of the best young jazz musicians in Scandinavia. Yes, you heard right!
|IN THE LIGHT OF LOVE: CORFU, GREECE|
|July 3-8, 2011 and July 17-22, 2011
Join Deva, Miten & Manose for a six day vacation offering a joyful and loving rejuvenation of Spirit. Two hour morning sessions of Ecstatic Chant offer a deep immersion into the healing world of mantras, songs & circle dances.
After the communal lunch there is time to explore the ancient island of Corfu, and enjoy the pristine Ionian Sea. There will also be four evening sessions for further explorations into song, silence, mantra and meditation. See the Holidays pages for more information and booking application forms.
"I just want to say you both thank you so much, from the deepest place of my heart, for the wonderful experience living together in Corfu. Thank you for the sacred space you created there for us, thank you for opening my heart with your voices and music, thank you for healing some parts of my soul, thank you for teaching me to share and connect with others, and thank you specially for your love and your presence...that´s the most special and beautiful present I have received from you both."
|MESSAGE FROM MITEN|
|Friends - we have heard through the grapevine that some same-sex couples are of the impression that they are not welcome at our events. This misunderstanding makes me very sad, and I want to dispel this myth immediately.
I think it has arisen due to our Tantra~Mantra For Couples events. The reason we invite hetero-couples only for this program has nothing to do with any kind of prejudice - it is simply that our Tantra teacher, Rafia, who leads the group with us, has had no direct experience with same sex Tantric relationships, and therefore feels it would be inappropriate for him to attempt to guide people into a process in which he himself has no experience. That's all!
Every other event of ours is absolutely open....and who knows, there may come a time in the future, when we will be able to invite same sex couples to a Tantric retreat – we are actually working on it!
In the meantime, to all same-sex couples, remember the Tantra~Mantra group is one week long. That leaves 51 weeks of the year where the opportunity to come together in the yoga of sacred song and chant is readily available. We hope you will sing & celebrate with us at our concerts, and join us for In The Light of Love retreats in Costa Rica or Corfu. These gatherings focus directly on the joy of discovering oneness and harmony within ourselves and with others, through singing, meditation, and celebration.
As the song goes – all is welcome here. I do hope this is clear. If anyone has any questions, please don't hesitate to drop us a line.
As for the rest – Deva, Manose, and I are so much looking forward to seeing you all again as the year unfolds. Our year began with concerts in Australia and has led us to the sunny shores of Costa Rica, at the amazing Blue Spirit Retreat Center, where we will return for two events in 2012 (second half of March). Watch out for that. We are doing our best to visit as many of you as possible - check the schedule!
Until we meet again, we send love, life and laughter to you all. And as always, thanks - for being a part of this extraordinary ride!
Namaste and love,

|Tribute to Japan:
Deva & Miten were in Australia working on a remix of the song In The Light of Love when the earthquake and tsunami happened in Japan. Later Miten put images to the music "in an attempt to portray the elevation of the human spirit in times of such overwhelming and inconceivable destruction. It is our tribute to the brave hearts of the Japanese people." You can find this powerful new video here.

|OSHO ON CHAOS: BE TRANSFORMED|
|"A time of crisis is a very valuable time. When everything is established and there is no crisis things are dead. When nothing is changing and the grip of the old is perfect, it is almost impossible to change yourself.
"When everything is in a chaos, nothing is static, nothing is secure, nobody knows what is going to happen the next moment -- in such a chaotic moment -- you are free, you can change. You can attain to the innermost core of your being.... There is nothing like a critical moment in history: everything is tense and everything is intense, and everything has come to a moment, to a peak, from where the wheel will turn. Use this door, this opportunity, and be transformed."
