NEW AGE: Meditation, NEW AGE: Healing
My love and connection to music is through the expression of sound, the spiraling vibrations, spirit... Each morning I wake and play my flute, my peaceful morning meditation. I shared a meditation with friends who encouraged me to make this recording and I offer these healing sound mantras to you with my blessings. Thank you dear friends, it was a joy...
