So Many Blessings ~ a celebration in song with Steven Walters, Sudhananda, and Milarepa  Steven Walters: Since age seven, Steven has made a life's work of writing and performing original music. For twenty years, he enjoyed a career on the road as a professional guitarist and vocalist in blues and country music bands. In 1993, after being diagnosed with leukemia and told he had twenty-four hours to live, Steven began a period of intensive meditation. Miraculously, he became strong enough to receive a bone marrow transplant and make a full recovery. Inspired by this second chance, in 1995 Steven began to truly live his dream, giving up the smoky bars and club circuit to perform his original music. Steven performs and speaks at diverse venues including concert halls, conferences, new thought churches, folk clubs and intimate house concerts from coast to coast. Events at which he has been invited to share his gifts include: workshops at the Esalen Institute; benefit concerts for the Gangaji Foundation (also featured in Gangaji's video, River of Freedom), Ram Dass, and others; the Inside Edge; and The International New Thought Alliance Conference. He has two independent releases available on compact disc. His album “So Many Blessings” is loved by people all over the world. With a playful simplicity,and a fresh approach to contemporary folk music, Steven Walters invokes the most tender feeling level of the heart, moving one deeply --- to joy and laughter one moment, to unabashed tears the next. With deftly woven lyrics and masterful guitar work, his songs are offerings of humor, spirit and sweetness. His is serious music for the light-hearted soul.  "Steven's brilliant music tickles the soul, tantalizes the mind and renews one's sense of humor, joy and happiness." - Mark Victor Hansen, co-author of “Chicken Soup For The Soul”.  "Still some weeks later, I am hearing rave reviews from those attending with comments like 'plays straight from the heart... a journey to be savored... so witty and humorous... one of the best players we've ever booked into the series.' I hear people walking around humming or whistling your melodies... Without a doubt, you've become a favorite." - Stephen L. Easterling Executive Producer Tapestry Concert Series, Walnut Creek, California  "With disarming humor yet penetrating insight, Steve deeply honors the 10,000 joys and the 10,000 sorrows of the human condition, gently revealing to the listener the simple bliss, wonder, and unbounded Silence that is this very moment. This is surely what they listen to in Heaven at the end of the day." - Scott Morrison, author of “There is Only Now and Open and Innocent: The Gentle, Passionate Art of Not-Knowing”.  www.stevenwaltersmusic.com   Sudhananda (aka Paul Greaver): Longtime resident of Marin county, Sudhananda has been involved in music for most of his life. He is a consummate guitarist and singer/songwriter. His playing is intricate and sensitive and comes from a solid background of classical training that has been wedded with folk, rock, jazz and world music influences. His relaxed, clear tenor voice has a pure and gentle quality. His music is all about beauty, harmony and unity — inspired by nature, his master Osho, and meditation. His songs speak with conscious lyrics about love, spirituality, ecology, and social issues. Sudhananda is also a recording engineer and producer and has worked on many recordings for the children's music label, Music For Little People including albums by Maria Muldhar, Donovan and Tina Malia. He runs his own recording studio in San Rafael as well as teaching guitar.  www.sudhananda.com  Milarepa: a singer/songwriter with more than fifteen albums of original music to his name.
