I just returned from playing in Bancroft at Grail Springs and the fall colours this year are incredible! I don't remember ever seeing them this bright and happy. It was a feast for the eyes! I had a marvelous time offering a week long workshop with my good friend David Price Frances. David and I also continued working on our recording project in Toronto - wonderful guided meditations. I'll let you know when we get them mixed/mastered and ready to go. I think they are splendid!
Here is picture of David and me at Grail Springs taken by our new friend Galina (her fairy name that I gifted her with). Thanks Galina (Magdelena) for all the lovely pictures you took for us!

My annual event at Esther Myers Yoga Centre is coming up on Sunday, October 26th. In addition to my Music Meditation and Healing Music Talk we will create a group Mantra! fun!
Please bring pillows, blankets and a mat if you would like to stretch out and relax completely during this deep, musical meditation. There are also chairs and some pillows and futons available at the studio.
At this event, Debbie will offer a Music Meditation. The mindful listening to healing music can help carry participants into a deep, meditative state. No previous experience with a formal meditation technique is required.
Debbie will play Shakuhachi, North American flute, Fairy chimes, gentle percussion and will also sing. The Shakuhachi is a Japanese Bamboo Flute originally played only by monks as a type of Zen called ‘Suizen’ or blowing Zen.
Debbie will also create a group Mantra that can be used during the meditation as a tool to help slow and deepen the breath. Participants will be able to take this Mantra home with them.
Debbie Danbrook has released 20 CD’s of music for healing and meditation. (new CDwww.lightfromthesuperearth.com). She offers healing music events in Japan, Europe, Africa and througout North America. Debbie teaches Shakuhachi and offers private healing sessions and Mantra sessions. She also offers clearing ceremonies for homes and work places. (www.healingmusic.com)
