"The music on SERENITY helps the listener
find that calm and soothing place the world around us constantly
challenges. Many of the compositions use the harmonium. When
I play this special antique pump organ-like instrument, I almost
instantly enter a resourceful and relaxed stream of creation...."
-Jessie Allen Cooper: Composer/Producer for Serenity and
music used in Creative Journal Expressive Arts Classes.
"SERENITY is a wonderful sound environment for meditation,
contemplation and relaxation. The music also works beautifully
for inner attunement through spontaneous movement, drawing and
journaling. Massage therapists and body workers can use it as
well to create a soothing, nurturing atmosphere for their clients."
- Lucia Capacchione: Ph.D.,A.T.R., Art Therapist and Best-selling
Author, Recovery of Your Inner Child
"The CD SERENITY helps to create a
relaxing and soothing experience that works great for my personal
journaling as well as for participants in workshops and one-on-one
sessions." -Marsha Nelson: Ph.D., Creative Journal
Expressive Arts Teacher.
