Thank you for United Artists Los Angeles!

Chris Hays ·
Having lamented whether I'd ever get to see Loreena perform live, I was thrilled when the LA tour was announced. For those lurking, this is not one of the many cineplexes that license the United Artist name, this is the original United Artists movie palace opened in 1929. And indeed, it s a palace inside! After doing time as a rental space and home to the late Dr Gene Scott's broadcast ministry, it has been refurbished as a palatial performance venue. It was a perfect setting for the...

Hi, I was on the website and heard the song "Searching for Lambs". I like cello very much and I know that Caroline Lavelle is a really gifted musician! The song sounds very similar to the songs of Loreena McKennitt. That´s the reason why I think that Loreena´s music is unique.... I wish "Secret Sky" all the best, they are great performers, unquestionably - but, I beg your pardon, I want to stay loyal to Loreena....! Christine

The Carnegie Performance: The Way of the Rain - Voice of Hope

Lizjul ·
This is a time of healing; that is what my mind and heart have been searching for these past couple of months. It's been a challenging year personally, and also with all this political unrest and wars against people, are just enough to set us back to the dark ages in mind. So I made a promise to myself to seek healing through artistry. I started go to local museums, and concerts to start this personal campaign of healing. I attended the beautiful program of The Way of the Rain - Voice of...

It's A Long Story, But Loreena McKennitt and Band Were Awesome

Secret Sky (AKA Loreena's band without Loreena)

Jesse ·
Hello fellow Loreenakateers, I just made a rather interesting discovery of a new trio that have formed out of some very familiar faces - Caroline Lavelle, Brian Hughes, and Hugh Marsh! Collectively, they call themselves 'Secret Sky' and have already released a self-titled album! The album in question also features guest musicians Tal Bergman on drums and Tim Landers on bass - both of whom are of course also regular members of Loreena's band. I've had a quick listen - they sound GOOOOOOD!

Hello Im writing this because i experience being transported when i listen to Loreena’s music. I have studied our different Bodies and according to some Mystery School Teachings, related to Ancient Masters, the Soul carries within it memories of past lives. Also, as Ive become more familiar with my own soul i get glimpses of what i could describe as past life experiences. Something in the song “Never Ending Road” inspires me to sense that Ms. Loreena may have connected beyond the ‘veil’ of...

Hello Claire, what you have written sounds a little bit strange to me, although I think I´m able to understand what you mean! The thought that the Soul carries within it the memories of past lives is fascinating! I believe that intuitive knowledge is passed on from generation to generation. Some wisdom disappears because people have lost this intuitive knowledge. For that other knowledge is produced. In former generations for instance, knowledge about the raising of children was passed on to...

Hello Christine! Thanks for engaging me. I appreciate your thoughts on our intuitive knowledge being passed down in an ‘unspoken’ manner. I get it. It’s true, ‘wisdom of the old’ can disappear if it’s not shared. I remember the first time I saw Ms. McKennitt perform she mentioned in her ‘Book of Secrets’ tour a story of a monk whom had carried a lost book of the Bible with him to be reprinted. That stimulated me to research what I could find about books left out of the King James Version.

Hi Claire, I never heard from Baird T. Spalding before (Spalding, not Spaulding )! He was a spiritual writer and author of the spiritual book series "Life and Teaching of the Masters of the Far East". I read a short biography in Wikipedia. It is very interesting which ways people choose in search of spirituality, wisdom and advanced knowledge. I experience all people as seekers in their respective ways - including myself. As for Baird T. Spalding, he traveled to India and Tibet and claimed...

Thank you, Stefan! I have no twitter account (also I am not a member of Facebook), so it is not possible for me to follow Caroline Lavelle.

But I will definitely learn if there is anything new to hear from Caroline Lavelle - I like to be surprised!! Christine

Hello again Christine I just remembered I wanted to mention I went to the Napal and Tibet (mostly in the mountains) in search of Master Babaji. I had an unusual experience on night teetering on a mountainside, which I believe was a visitation. That led me to look into now day Mystery schools that study the Master’s teachings. If you have experiences to share I’m open. Take care, Claire

Hello Ravenlyn, thank you very much for your dedicated words! I agree with you that Secret Sky is a very passionate band, new for me because I didn´t know them, but also wonderful music indeed. By the way, I also appreciate "Secret Garden" with Fionnuala Sherry and Rolf Lovland and their band. But as far as the depth of the thoughts, the expression of the music and the charisma of the musicians themselves are concerned, Loreena MkKennitt remains unsurpassed for me....!

Hi Claire, I forgot to say that I´m impressed that you traveled to Nepal and Tibet in search of Master Babaji. Were you alone? You also asked where Loreena was able to find those words "Our love must make us strong". Taking into account her culture, her sensitivity, her strong interest in Celtic people and their migrations and perhaps the religious atmosphere in her family or environment - I think it is not so difficult to find those words. Love is a strong, a very important topic for all...

Yes, Claire, the banana boat concept can be interpreted as literal.

I don't mean just a complicated situation, but also a literally sticky situation due to the fruit's texture. Having a real banana boat is a silly idea, but thank goodness, there is such...
