So, went along to the Mind Body Spirit recenlty on the last Bank holiday & noticed how many leaflets were thrust into my hand without my opportunity to say politely, no thank you. There are a number of organisations who do not charge for their readings or services for the show, they are just happy to be there to promote their work but there's also a lot of others who are there purely to make some money. I grant you, you do need to make a profit, especially if it's your only means of making a living but I wonder how many of those are really 'coming from the heart' or how many are just purely in it because they know they can make good money at these shows?
I wasn't going to go this year but decided last minute that I would & met one of my good friends up there & also an old friend I used to know from my Medau training days. I also bought my sister a present for her 40th birthday, so it was worthwhile me going.
One lady who was definitely singing from the heart was the rather beautiful Chakrini, who does Kirtan singing. http://www.chakrini.com/ Check out the website. She is on You tube as well but the clips on there don't really do her justice. Ironically, she was there promoting her new album but she won me over with her geniune love for her art & fantastic God-given voice, soaring up into the rooftop of the horticultural halls. Certainly highlight of my day.
Enjoy the clips everyone. X x
