CHILDREN BEYOND out SOON!
Dear friends, I am so happy to share with you the news, that our next album CHILDREN BEYOND with Tina Turner and Regula Curti will be released in the next few weeks by Universal Music Switzerland and Germany. It contains beautiful Prayers of the religious traditions of this world that we sang together with 30 children from the age of 6 to 13. They represent the richness of the different cultures and traditions and they made it all happen. Children are our future, and if we manage to nurture their little souls well with our love and compassion and a sense of belonging each one of them will be a shining star for peace in this world. Please do share this with as much friends as you can. You will be totally enchanted to see the website where you can already hear some of the music of this new album.

Photoexhibition "DIGNITY" by Dana Gluckstein
Last Monday Helge and myself had the great honor to perform three Mantras of our album JEWEL at the private reception of Dana Glucksteins amazing photo exhibition "Dignity, Tribes in Transition" held at the UN in Geneva. www.danagluckstein.com. We were invited by my dear friend Mrs. Deborah Haschke from Tibet House Foundation in Switzerland who was hosting this event in cooperation with Creative Visions. It is an incredibly beautiful exhibition that will go on tour. Whoever has the opportunity should go to see it and let yourself be touched deeply with Dana's pictures. This photo shows me with The U.S. Ambassador Mrs. Betty King, Dana Gluckstein and Deborah Haschke.
"JEWEL TIBET DANCE"
Paying hommage to all the Buddhas and Taras by doing the "JEWEL TIBET DANCE". What a feeling to connect with all the enlightened beings through the beauty of dance. Absolutely delighted to see that everybody loves it as much as I do and experiencing the universal language of sound and dance. We danced to the rythm of "Praising Tara" after I had explained the meaning of the Mantra and we had sung it together. The steps are the steps I learned from my beloved mother that she taught me when I was still a young girl. I have modified them slightly to make it easier to learn. Workshops are planned and you can find them on my website soon.
