|“While this disc does not specifically tout its healing qualities, the way it's produced and played gives it a natural healing vibration. The thing I love about this disc is how the flutes are overdubbed, often to the accompaniment of Tibetan bowls and bells, blowing like a clear breeze through the cathedral of the mind. But it's heart-centered music as well, especially on "Pyramid" and "Dream Lodge Dancer."
"Seven-time Grammy winner Roger Nichols helped out on production and it shows — even on a simple flute solo. The album, especially on headphones, opens up into an adventure in reverberation and resonance — a true tonic for the heart and mind.”
