Much of what we experience as physical tension or stress is the result of an imbalanced body. In this CD, Mary Bond presents a selection of 26 structural awareness exercises from her book, Balancing Your Body, that teach the listener to recognize and respond in appropriate ways to the body's inner messages. Beginning with an exploration of your habitual standing and walking patterns, these exercises guide the listener through a variety of experiences that contribute to standing, sitting, and walking with fluidity, balance, and ease. This unique self-help program will help to create new freedom in your physical expression and improve your well-being and vitality.
Drawing upon ancient Indian ragas, or musical compositions, Harish Johari has created meditation music especially for the early morning and evening hours. Traditionally, ragas are inspired by, and reflect, sounds of nature--such as birds, insects, rivers, and wind--which change in quality depending upon the hour of the day. The CD's include Flute for Dawn, ideal for meditation before sunrise. This is followed by Tambura for Morning Meditation, which can be played in the early hours following sunrise. It also features Flute and Bird for Dusk, incorporating actual bird calls that, in nature, announce the close of day. The droning sound of the tambura in the final piece, Tambura Evening Meditation, has sympathetic overtones that subtly influence the nervous system.
The music on this CD is created by flute and tambura, both of which have a healing effect on the body, mind, and spirit.
This is the world's premier method for learning modern guitar. It is time tested and has proven to be quite successful in building the harmonic knowledge and technique needed to play any style. It teaches note reading and in book one, the guitarist will learn to play solos, duets, scales and chords in the keys of C, A minor, G and E minor. The method is supplemented by a companion study book entitled Grade 1 Studies and by two different CD recordings and an instrumental video. The original companion recordings feature Tommy Flint and William Bay playing on a split-track format. This means that the solo parts and first duet parts will be performed on the right channel of a stereo player, and the accompaniment or second duet parts will be played on the left. The student thus may play with the full recording or tune out either channel and play the missing part
A companion to Harish Johari's book Chakras: Energy Centers of Transformation, this CD provides the authentic sounds for meditation on each of the chakras.
