Her programs include film screenings, book signings and Wednesday afternoon tea with Tarot.
Her immensely popular quarterly community gatherings with music, food, massage, henna and more are mini conscious community festivals promoting eco-friendly living. Now Reena is teaming up with Ombience, a 501 c3 non-profit organization encouraging self – reflection through the Arts, to host a bi-monthly dinner and music concert series featuring her authentic Thakali Tribal food, guided meditation, and concert featuring top level eclectic classical & world music performances in an intimate setting.

Sarod player and singer/songwriter Stephen Day plays ragas and writes songs inspired by his many music tours around the world.

Day studied SAROD in India for three years with the world’s greatest living sarodist Ustad Amjad Ali Khan. After India, Stephen spent time touring in Europe and America where he played premier venues including the Kodak Theater in L.A. and Town Hall in N.Y.
