Echoes of the Heart-A Sacred Journey
Imagine that you are outside, sitting quietly on the earth at the feet of a wisdomkeeper. In the silence all you can hear are the gentle sounds of nature. Reverently, with the voice of the flute the elder reveals the mysteries of the ancient ones. You are humbled as you hear a call to the four sacred directions and you remember the simple yet profound connection you have with all that exists. The journey begins at sunrise...with the birds singing at the break of dawn, and a morning chant to honor the arrival of a new day. More than a recording, it is an experience of balance and harmony with all living things. You are carried through an entire day on the mesmerizing melodies of the flute, allowing you to reconnect with the spiritual nature of your own existence. Join the wind, rain, thunder, fire and crickets - listen to the distant drum (the artist's own heartbeat, his tribute to Mother Earth). An inspired recording of flute, vocals and nature. '...transports me to the place in my soul where I experience profound reverence for the beauty, power and love of the Creator.' B.L. '...I can just feel the daily pressures and stress leave my being.' J.D. 'My first listening experience was truly profound. I felt lifted by the hand of God...in a physical, spiritual and emotional sense. I am a faithful and devoted Christian and truly feel that the truth of this recording transcends all barriers as does the essential truth of all faith paths.' D.S.
