“Mercedes Bahleda has the rare mixture of being a deeply gifted performer, an intellectual powerhouse, and a purely open hearted person. One cannot help but be inspired and changed by spending a few hours in her presence."

"Mercedes voice has the power to awaken lost and lonely hearts and to remind them of their deeper purpose and longings. She is unpremeditated in her work and this gives it a dangerous and essential vitality that is rare and deeply needed in the world.”

"I have been a student of Mercedes for the past five years. Her teachings filled my life with profound ancient wisdom.  Applying this wisdom to my meditation practice enriched my life to a level I never imagined and assisted me during difficult times.  Her presentation is imbued with spiritual knowledge of various traditions. Her experiences as a dedicated yogi fill her teaching with love and wisdom that few people possess."

"Mercedes Bahleda has always been an angel for me.  Her voice is inseparable from her spirit, tender and triumphant.  Her creative energy and her spiritual energies are  one and the same; with her voice and body, she kisses eternity...."
