The Meditations

Gregorian Chants
For 1500 years the gentle rise and fall of Gregorian Chants sung daily by monks in monasteries all across Europe has symbolized the history of the Western quest for spiritual communion

Chants from the Greek Orthodox Liturgy

Music in the Byzantine church is a blend of Asian, Roman, Hebraic, and early Christian cultures, that creates a sublime form of devotional chant as multi-national as it is ancient.

Japanese Masterpieces for Shakuhachi

The long end-blown, bamboo shakuhachi is an ancient flute of Japan and is the traditional instrument used for Zen meditation. This selection is an example of the most serene and masterful Shakuhachi meditation music ever recorded.

Buddhist Drums, Bells, and Chants

An ethereal and transcendental selection from sacred Buddhist temple ceremonies, recorded on location at an actual temple service in Kyoto, Japan.

Tibetan Monastic Chanting

There are few sounds on earth able to convey the power heard in poly-tonal throat chanting of Tibetan Monks' meditation. This hypnotic repeated chant can create an almost instant sensation of inner calm and heightened inner awareness.

The Shaman's Frame Drum

In the hands of master percussionist and rhythm-healing expert Randy Crafton, the harmonic vibrations of the ancient Celtic frame drum propel the listener into ever deeper states of meditation.
