Hi Divas! There are only five more days before we American citizens have to participate in one of the biggest elections of our lifetime. And thanks to this year’s political climate, anyone can feel themselves losing it as they prepare to go to the polls.
That’s why we’re so happy we met Michel Pascal, creator of RELAX-SING. This hybrid of mediation and song is designed to help everyone feel relaxed and calm and boost energy, leaving you feeling a little happier in a chaotic world. An accomplished singer, this French native-turned-American citizen uses his gifted voice to help bring a little peace and harmony into our everyday lives.
Spending an hour with him on a balmy fall day at Mercedes Club in New York City, Michel explained that “life can be so stressful, we just need to calm our minds.” Michel, who lived with monks, utilizes chants and song to guide us on our journey to inner peace. One of his favorite songs to get our mind on the relaxed train? “Smile,” he said as he broke out into song.
Living in New York City, time is a precious commodity. Who has an hour to spare to just chill out? Michel understands – and suggested that NYCers use that “time on your subway ride,” to close our eyes and enjoy RELAX-SINGing while we ride.
For NYCers who really want to experience RELAX-SING with Michel, he’s performing a benefit concert on Monday, Nov. 14 at Carnegie Hall. With chants and voice, he’s ready to inspire and uplift. The show’s proceeds will help train meditation teachers for High-Risk Communities in New York with Stay’n Out (www.staynout.org).
And of course, we got Michel to give us a little special performance to share with you DivaGals. Watch it below!
