Integrative psychotherapy through mindfulness, insight and depth psychology.
Relaxation music for healing and meditation. Personal growth books for
self-discovery, self-acceptance and conscious living.
Music is the language of the soul. For as long as I can remember being alive,
sound and music have been a source of healing. I learned at a young age music altered my consciousness
and took me to another world – a place of soothing waves of energy and color. Music for me is like painting
or sculpting with sound. These musical sound poems are created out of my deep reverence for life and love
for the simple miracle of being. It is my greatest joy to offer a bit of my journey into the healing world of sound
through these CD’s of music for relaxation, inspiration and healing.
