This is a live recording of a healing concert. The focus is the opening of the heart to Sacred Masculine energies held within the Earth. These sacred energies provide a surround and support for the feminine, especially as it relates to the women living in the Middle East, and their emerging Divine Feminine power.
This concert features 900-year-old chants by the mystic and seer Hildegard of Bingen, sung by sound shaman Norma Gentile. Accompanied by Tibetan Singing Bowls and a choir of women, this CD includes spoken blessings and Hildegard’s own poetry with stories of her life told by storyteller Anne Rutherford. The songs invoke the Sacred Masculine and Sacred Feminine, using the music as a carrier wave for healing energies. An ideal vehicle to magnify meditation and creative acts.
"Norma Gentile captures powerfully the spirit and the depth of Hildegard's music and message in these beautiful and timeless CD's. She carries us to depths and heights that the soul yearns to explore and where Spirit and soul soar in unison. Hildegard is proud!"
-Matthew Fox, author, Illuminations of Hildegard of Bingen; Hildegard of Bingen's Book of Divine Works with Letters and Songs

SOUND SHAMAN NORMA GENTILE stands on the precipice between the worlds of professional music making and energy healing. Trained in both worlds, she holds a master’s degree in Vocal Performance from the University of Michigan, has recorded four solo CDs of Hildegard’s chant, and is a published author and channel for the Hathors and Archangel Michael. Norma has appeared on CBS TV, demonstrating live the properties of Gregorian style chant to relax the physical body, and has been profiled by NPR’s All Things Considered and the Toronto Star. Her music is used by Carolyn Myss, Drunvalo Melchizedek, and the female yogini Gurmukh. Her singing has a “supernatural presence, concentration, and modal sensitivity. according to Mark Longaker (music critic, Washington Post). Her sound healing experience is included in Brooke Medicine Eagle’s book “The Last Ghost Dance”.
Norma’s gift, to be deeply intuitive as a highly trained musician, allows her to step beyond even the extraordinary, into the truly new realms to which music leads us all. Norma has been invited to teach at the American Conservatory Theater, Wisdom University, and has coached cast members of Broadway shows such as Vagina Monologues and The Lion King, while coaching singers from musical groups as diverse as Sweet Honey in the Rock and Hesperion XXI.
