Gina began cross-cultural singing at the age of three, living in a hindu ashram. She was then raised Catholic and Protestant, lived in a Tibetan Monastery in Nepal, walked solo for months in the Himalayas, stayed seven months with the great Advaita sage Poonjaji (a.k.a.

Gina's passion is to help us awaken to the magnificence of Who we are.
With that awareness and balance, she believes, wellness and love naturally arises and we are better able to care for each other and the planet. She often reminds us in her chant, songs, and words, "The One I Love, Lives Inside of You."
