sound vibrations, sound frequencies, inner sounds, world of sounds
My music studio is now set up to create music in surround sound - something I have wanted to do since I first started to compose and produce, simply because it is the way we all experience sound. Throughout the day and night, we are literally surrounded by sounds, whether we are conscious of them or not. We think of sound as frequencies we hear with our physical ears. We are touched viscerally by sound waves through their vibrational resonance in our body. We are also touched emotionally by sound wavesRead More

grace, what is grace, grace meditation, grateful, gratitude
We tend to think of painful things as mistakes and the good stuff as luck. Or perhaps we think of what we like as grace, a gift from beyond, and things we don’t like as a curse. However we choose to see the moment and understand our life, at some point we ask, what is grace? Do we have control over it? How can we amplify it? Where does it come from? Many of us are walking around through our days wanting life to be different, wondering why it isRead More
Meditation - Compassion
The great teachers through the ages have emphasized the importance of compassion on the spiritual path. It is not just a sweet sentiment, but a deep awareness that takes us beyond our small self and connects us with infinite love. Compassion is born in our being when we rest in the knowing of our inherent oneness with all that is. It flowers as our ego dies and we are born into the reality of our eternal Self. It is a divine nectar that flows effortlessly when we are willing toRead More
Meditation-Parvati-Listen to the sounds
I have been hibernating this past winter in my music studio, but have been far from asleep. Instead, I have been sparking with immense creativity to compose five upcoming albums in support of MAPS, the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary. Feeling as though I was holding a thread of an inspired download, I felt honoured to listen to the unseen as sounds were making themselves audible for me to render into form. I felt immersed in a creative sea. At the same time, I strongly felt the presence of the greatRead More
Parvati Meditation when your thoughts are driving your crazy-
My daily meditation practice gives me energy and clarity in all I do. It opens me to an effervescent field of possibility through which life arises. I cannot recommend it enough. Yet, since meditation is now commonly known as a means to find inner peace, it may be tempting to turn to it with a desire to escape the challenges of life. In a culture where pills can remove pain, we can misunderstand meditation as happiness medication, and come to our cushion with a hope to feel better. For thoseRead More
Meditation Interconnection-Parvati
Your life flows in joy, ease and beingness when you get out of your own way. The tighter you hold on to the idea that you are the one doing it all, the more you suffer. When you try to make this moment as your ego would have it, the further you move away from the sweet balance that exists in the now. When you take pause from this effortful fight, you open to see that you have in fact no control. This is not because you are not powerful,Read More
