ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Alchemical Psalms is Kevin Moran’s first collection of poetry. Many of his poems are born out of encounters with the Self, the individual spark of Divine Life within. Jesus called this spark the ‘Pearl,’ the ‘Treasure’ and the ‘Kingdom of God.’ Hindu’s speak of the Atman. Carl Jung spoke of ‘the Dream Maker.’ Spanish poet Antonio Machado writes:

Last night as I was sleeping,
I dreamt – marvellous error! –
That it was God I had
Here in my heart.

Kevin’s poetry is concerned with the rebirth of the soul that occurs within the everyday struggles of human life. For him these struggles include walking with his beloved mother as she struggled with Alzheimer’s disease and the loss of his Brooklands home following the Christchurch earthquake. His poetry reminds us that authentic spirituality is grounded in sympathy and compassion; therein lies its true substance.

With each poem, Kevin has included a ‘whakapapa’. Whakapapa is the Maori word for genealogy. The genealogies speak of the poetry’s origins, influences and symbolism, including dream imagery and short wisdom ‘sayings’ given by the Self. The whakapapa also contain quotations from the various mystics, poets, visionaries and philosophers who have influenced the author.

The book includes a CD which contains 27 Alchemical Psalms. The CD evokes soul & spirit through the author’s voice, his sister Eilish Moran’s feminine ‘soul’ voice, sound effects from nature & the talented improvisations of master didgeridoo player, Sika Rose, harpist Amira Mudfaery Nadira and CD producer Levity’s guitar & mandolin offerings, making it a unique sensory and spiritual experience. The CD concludes with the hauntingly beautiful ‘Kotuku’ composed and sung by Kevin’s daughter Sita Moran, backed by harpist Helen Webby and guitarist Davy Stuart.

Kevin Moran works as a counsellor, therapist, supervisor and spiritual companion. He sees his primary calling as that of a poet/shaman. His spirituality includes a devotion to the Sacred Feminine. Kevin lives in the Harbour Basin on the outskirts of Christchurch, New Zealand.
