I find the process of selecting the music for my clients an integral part of preparing the healing space for my clients.
In this post I want to tell you about two very different music possibilities. Even though I rarely use either of these CDs, when I do play them the sessions are very deep and profound.
The first is good for the Holiday season: Lamentations of Jeremiah, by English composer Thomas Tallis. Recorded by The Hilliard Ensemble.
My second recommendation is the most soulful music I have ever heard: Djivan Gasparyan‘s The Moon Shines At Night. Djivan is an Armenian musician and composer and plays the duduk, a double reed woodwind instrument. Really, even if you never use this music in a healing session, this music is incredible and I invite you to check it out.
Jeri Lawson is available for Healing Touch and Clarity Breathwork sessions Monday through Friday, 10am to 6pm, in the Temescal Area of Oakland, California.
I have been playing Ragas Relax in my healing sessions for several weeks now, and I have received more unsolicited positive comments on it from my clients than any other music I’ve used to date.
When I first listened to it before I actually used it in a session, I thought it might have too much percussion in it to be good for energy work. Yet, during the first healing, I found the music created a very flowing energetic space. This music seems to disappear when you don’t need it and then seems to suddenly be there when you need to reground during the session. Very interesting.
Chinmaya Dunster wrote on his website:
“When I pick up my sarod and prepare to play an Indian Classical raga, I feel as if I am about to enter on a pilgrimage, a sacred journey of discovery. It is a great mystery… these ancient ragas are not just rules of how to play the twelve musical notes; they are spiritual places to be visited.”
Chinmaya Dunster plays sarod, tanpura, swarmandel, monochord and keyboards. Bikkram Singh plays the bamboo flute and Joseph Satralkar is on piano.
