My Musical Journey

 

The journey I’ve taken to channel music has required a great deal of letting go of what I thought it meant to be a musician.

 

From the age of six to eighteen, I studied classical piano and played the pieces of known composers such as Chopin, Bach, Beethoven, and Rachmaninoff. As I got older, my piano teacher encouraged me to go to music school, but I found it difficult to study in a conventional way. I learned songs more easily by ear and intuition vs. sight-reading. I was discouraged by the normal methods of learning and gave up playing for more than twenty years.

 

It wasn’t until I entered into a deeper spiritual path, and became a Benedictine Monk in the Spirit of Peace Monastic Community of Celebrating Life Ministries (CLM), that something started to shift for me. I found myself sitting down and spontaneously channeling piano improvisations that sounded like complete compositions.

 

For a number of years I played these improvisations, mostly for myself, and used it as a form of healing and meditation. On some level I still doubted that these channelings were a ‘real thing’ worth sharing with others, and I mostly kept them private. However, after being one of the musicians at the CLM healing retreats, people began asking me to share my music.

 

Above is my debut album “You are Eternal.”  I will be releasing my second album, 'Majesty of the Heart', in 2018.

 

One of the greatest learnings I’ve come to realize over these forty years of playing music is that when we let go of our limiting stories and beliefs and let the Divine take over, miracles happen. From this place, our unique gifts can be offered back into the world with greater purity and strength.

 

My hope is that this music gives you the inspiration to bring the fullness and beauty of who you are into the world, perhaps even in ways you least expect.  May you experience your eternal nature and be filled with a deep peace within.
 

Each song on my album "You Are Eternal" is channeled in the moment and brings a healing energy of unconditional love and peace.
