Workshop: The Secret of Spiritual Meditation 

These days the benefits of meditation, ranging from stress management and relieving anxiety to increasing creativity and self awareness, are well understood and well supported by research. But not everyone finds it easy to make meditation a daily habit.

Dada, drawing on his forty years of experience, using music and little known secrets from the ancient yoga tradition, reveals how a simple shift in perspective can take your meditation to a higher level. What once felt like homework seems more like a love story. 

That was fantastic, it was fantastic, I can’t tell you… I went into a state of peace and calm – it was so welcome. Thank you for that experience.” – Wendy Mclure, Architect, San Francisco.

What an extraordinary and heart opening experience. Informative, inspiring, and lots of fun. Dada N combines humour, deep insight, and tremendous knowledge of the spiritual path. A really rare opportunity.” – Susan Feathers – Asst Dean of Law, Stanford University, California

Concert: Warriors of the Rainbow

Dada is frequently compared to 70’s star Cat Stevens, or Donovan or Don Mclean. You get the idea - he is a singer/songwriter featuring rich lyrics, strong melodies and a charismatic stage presence. In performance Dada adds images, stories, humour and to take the listeners on a moving journey. Beginning with his personal spiritual search he takes us through a series of song/stories: a shamanistic vision of today's ecological crisis, a young girl’s amazing response to learning that there is still child slavery, the song of the last blue whale, and more, and culminates with a re-awakening of hope - envisaging a future world in harmony and peace.

Dada started playing music at the age of four. He has recorded eight albums, won five international songwriting awards and has performed or recorded with a number of notable musicians including Paul Winter, Premik Tubbs (from Santana and John Mclaughlin bands) Harry Williamson (from Gong) & the late, great Daevid Allen (founder of Gong and Soft Machine).
