Flutations: Musical Meditations for Wooden Flute

This is my first Native American flute album, Flutations, musical meditations for wooden flute. Please take a free listen and let me know what you think. I am still very new at all this, yet it seems to come from somewhere very ancient inside of me. Although the flute for me has been up until this point, something I just play for myself, I am hoping that sharing this gift of wood and breath, of earth and heart, helps others as much as it has helped me, taught me, soothed me, healed me and made me smile. Also many thanks to Ray Wood of Island Flutes ( www.islandflutes.com ), whose passion for creating flutes that are truly magical works of art on their own, has made this music possible. (Ray built both the bamboo and olive wood drone flutes played on this album.)

Track Name: Heal Thyself
Playing the flute before I retire each night evokes dreamscapes that can provide insights about how I can be a better human. The magic unfolding of these dreams often reveal difficult issues I need to resolve, but is this not often the nature of self-healing? Listen deeply and enjoy the journey.
Track Name: Chariot of the Sun
Not sure how to describe this birthing, this magic carpet leap. Bright conduit of breath and olive drone sing together. I am humbled by the powers at play and can only smile.
