"I want to thank Sharon from Living at peace for a spectacular event.
Sharon has the unique ability to ensure that everyone in the room
feels like an integral part of the drumming circle. The positive
energy, and joy that was created greatly enhanced our Purim event."

I had the opportunity to catch a Living At Peace workshop at the NJ Music Educator’s State Convention and it was fantastic. Sharon has such a deep understanding of the cultural authenticity of world drumming and how it promotes health and wellness is this stressful world in which we live. Her presentation was well structured and her holistic approach in her facilitation made for a warm and inviting atmosphere for every level player. I’ve been running drum circles for fourteen years and still walked away with great ideas and techniques that I can implement in my general music class and percussion ensemble at my school. It would be advantageous for any school district or organization to have Living At Peace present for them.

Ms. Silverstein and The Peace Project touch the very soul, conveying ideas about unconditional love, grace and the great human potential all humans have for true wisdom. Ms. Silverstein’s lyrics hit you at a deep, almost subconscious level. Her resonate voice a little bit Sheryl Crow, a touch Grace Slick and a smidgeon Janis Joplin gives her music a transformational quality. Anyone who listens to her CD “Alive” gets a kind of Living At Peace spiritual boot camp.
Susan Van Dongen Courier News 2008
All ages will be inspired when listening to the motivational album “Alive” by Sharon Silverstein and The Peace Project. A wonderful vocalist, Silverstein proves her ability to sing with the grace and style of enthusiastic stimulation with the intonation of folk rock. The title track “Alive” is fresh and energetic in tempo, with nice harmonies complementing the lead vocals. Listeners will feel joy when hearing the spiritual lyrics on “Living At Peace” as they gently move the body and soul. “Unique Me” is a bouncy blues tune with colorful piano fills and spirited drum beats. The entire album is appealing as tempos gracefully shift from upbeat to a gentle ballad. “Alive” is filled with ideal, uplifting mood music, and fans of upbeat folk rock will definitely enjoy this album.

Sharon Silverstein and The Peace Project’s Kirtan at Princeton Center for Yoga & Health inspires all who attend. Sharon creates a welcoming environment for all, giving them a place to feel at ease and able to free themselves from the daily chatter of their minds as they are engaged in the positive, powerful vibrations. Sharon’s ecstatic chanting is commanding and her combination of ancient mantras with contemporary musical style makes the Kirtan accessible to all who attend. Sharon leads groups in a dynamic, tender manner that ensures everyone a delightful experience. I highly recommend Sharon and The Peace Project’s Kirtan to everyone!
In peace, love and light,
