"Michael's chanting is wonderful. I feel peaceful and so moved. " - Mariel Hemingway.


For those who desire to deepen their devotional experience in meditation, "chanting is half the battle." Michael has helped many sincere souls open the door to the bliss of chanting the Divine Name by learning to play the harmonium - the easy-to-learn hand-pumped keyboard used for centuries in India as accompaniment to the ancient devotional art of kirtan.

An accomplished kirtan artist, Michael led meditation and chanting for 15 years at the famed Self-Realization Fellowship Lake Shrine, founded by the great world teacher, Paramahansa Yogananda, and has given concerts and workshops throughout the United States and Canada.
