“Being in Carl Jonas‘ energy field during his satsangs, concerts and workshops is enchanting, moving and soothing. I can let myself fall… back into a childlike state of joy where everything becomes soft, easy and crystal clear. Playfulness arises and creativity starts to flow. It’s like becoming a teenager again… excitedly flirting with the moment, with a positive expectation and big embrace of the unknown.
Yet also in dark moments Carl Jonas provides humble, practical guidance reminding me that even the heaviest feelings will pass if we drop the resistance, feel them and stay with them. Satsang with Carl Jonas is meeting in the heart, in trust as well as in sharply expressed truth.”
Filled to the brim with joy, Carl Jonas’ music is welcoming us back to our true home. It’s overflowing with the message of love and points to the truth of all things, a truth that is always right in front of us.
When the truth is spoken or sung, and there is true listening, there is an opening that words can’t explain. That’s what l experience when I listen to Carl Jonas singing.
