Flute Medicine is excellent for massage, yoga, relaxation, traffic jams, the dentist's chair, enjoying the love and more. Bob Weiss, President of Around the World Music says, "No one in America is doing what she's doing. This CD is unique!"
The bamboo flute is a gift given to heal us, uplift us and accompany us into all of life's experiences. In a complicated world filled with pressures and demands, Flute Medicine mirrors simplicity, stillness, beauty and the sublime. As the breath breathes us, the wind of the flute invites us to feel our divine origins, the original message that lies within. I invite you to drift up and away on the incredible sounds of bamboo, the human voice, bowls, bells and natural percussion as I dedicate this to You!
