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 seriously for more than twenty years. During that time I explored improvising classical music, but mostly as a form of meditation for myself.
It wasn’t until I entered into a deeper spiritual path, and became a Professed 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 continued to play these improvisations as a form of healing and meditation for myself and for people in various spiritual communities I was in. However, after being one of the musicians at the CLM healing retreats, people began asking me to share my music and I was inspired to share it more widely.
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.
