Join Us for a Kirtan Concert!

Monday, September 13th, 2010

Friday September 24th, 2010
7:30 to 9:30pm
At East Eagle Yoga
18 East Eagle Road, Havertown, PA

Dear Philadelphia,

I’m excited to announce my first east coast Kirtan concert on Friday September 24th, at East Eagle Yoga in Havertown. I’ve had a chance to record and perform a little with David Newman since I moved to the area and contribute to the Ammachi satsang at the Groff’s. I enjoyed playing live music for East Eagle’s Friday nite candlelight yoga class. It’s been wonderful getting to know the yoga and kirtan community in the Philly area.

I wrote my first bhajan many years ago in a cave temple in India, reciting a mantra with guitar in hand and letting whatever melody come through. It was a deep experience. On the 24th I’ll be performing my first CD, “Offering”, with a few songs thrown in from my up-and-coming second CD, “Blessing”.

Kirtan, or devotional singing, is another branch of yoga that deepens all aspects of your practice. Practicing bhakti yoga via kirtan, even for one evening, tends to enhance the other branches of yoga. The chanting of these ancient mantras, set to my original melodies, has a wonderful effect on your mind, body and spirit. The combination of a group singing in unison, the breathing aspect and the meaning and energy of the mantras creates something rich and magical. It will be a joy to share my music with you for an evening of sweet devotion, community and uplifting singing.

We’d love to have you join us!

To Your Health,
Dr. Martin Orimenko
Live Well Holistic Health Center

Lancaster Inns Open Their Doors To Vets

Lancaster Inns Open Their Doors To Vets

Lancaster, PA: Just how do you thank those who put themselves in the line of danger, risking their lives so that we enjoy ours in freedom?

Waving flags and attending Fourth of July parades don’t seem like enough, so when the innkeepers of the Authentic Bed and Breakfasts of Lancaster County Association heard of B & B’s For Vets (, they jumped at the chance to help.

On Wednesday, November 10, innkeepers all over the country will open their doors and invite vets to stay a night “on the house” in observance of Veteran’s Day.

The Lancaster association boasts 41 inns located throughout the Lancaster County. Some bed and breakfasts are romantic; others cater to families or accept pets. Several inns are historic mansions, while others have been built specifically for the B & B traveler. And each room within a B & B tends to be very different too, for creative innkeepers have a way with decorating. But no matter which inn a vet picks, he or she is sure to encounter friendly hosts, clean and comfortable surroundings and a hearty breakfast.

Quoting Association President Dave Harvey, “It seems a small way to thank our service men and women for all they do.”

The program was started in 2009 by the West Virginia B&B Association (formerly called MABB) and this year has expanded to include over 35 states, a Canadian province and more than 200 Inns.

Please note that this offer will require military ID and is available for all military – those serving now or those who have served, as well as their spouse.

So if you’re a vet, don’t delay – this is a great way to enjoy a little getaway, and to give others a tangible way to express their gratitude for your service. For more information on Authentic Bed and Breakfasts of Lancaster County Association, please contact Marketing Chair Lynne Griffin, at 717-464-0707. For a list of inns, please see the website at
