(TAKEN STRAIGHT FROM THE BOOK)
From a tiny seed, an idea that my co-creator Julie Fischer had to compile this unique ‘playbook’ of chants, to this 124 pages of self exploration & creativity... my life once again affirms the mystery and magic inherent when we nurture something new and unknown through to its full manifestation. Isn’t this what birthing is all about? While in morning meditation I ask myself again...“ Who is actually birthing here?”
Sitting in a boxed room with open window or lounging on a white sanded beach while on tour in Florida, Julie and I would listen to one of my chants for a few moments and then from this meditative space I would speak about it. We recorded these words and Julie be- gan framing them into a journal type format.
As all seeds are designed to germinate, we were blessed to connect with Zenspirations Jo- anne Fink, a dynamo spiritual seeker and artist who I had previously known in high school. Though Joanne was a year ahead of me, we were passing fellow school mates. In passing no more, a sweet friendship now is born.
Joanne took us under her generous and capable wings and our book map began to fill with these breathtaking and deeply reflective images.
And so from ethereal sound, mantra and voice we merge the spiritual journey with journal- ing, coloring, imaging and play.
How so? Each chapter includes an audio download from one of my 5 albums: Into the Arms of Love, The Song of Breath, We Are One, Divine and Ma, along with some new tracks recorded specifically for the Playbook.
We may each be unique in our approach to this playbook. Some of us are generally more tactile, others primarily visual while some dance to mantra and sound. In celebration of our uniqueness, below are a few suggestions:
You can listen to each track from your device or computer and chant along.
You can chant along and then read the pages, answering questions and taking
meditations both designed to move and self inquire.
You can chant along while coloring in the various black and white images.
You can open into the chapter, answer the questions, and maybe have your own verbal download. Then when your moment is empty and full, you can listen and chant along to the audio recording.
At the beginning of each chapter, you will read a brief description of the specific chant that is to be expressed. These chants are mantras that have been universally sung and meditated on by spiritual seekers for centuries. A mantra is a repeated word or a phrase that holds a sacred vibration.
You will find these chants are written in Sanskrit, one of the oldest languages born from the mystical East as a means to express the language of God or Truth. We each have our own form and name for that which we connect to on a higher plane. It is said that by chanting these Sanskrit mantras, the primordial vibrations inherent can direct us to that personal calling where love and peace eternally reside, side by side.
For those who enjoy following the lyrics to the chants, they are included at the end of each chapter.
There are so many ways to explore, enter in, nurture, experiment, fall and grow!
It is my and Julie’s intention that this seed serves to nurture all that you are, ever have been, always will be... and that you are more inspired to infuse our shared world with your flowering fertile essence and brilliance!
Birth away! Together! Let’s Play!
