Happy September!!! I hope this newsletter finds you happy and peaceful. It is a busy time of year, please take a moment to make yourself a nice cup of tea, put on some Healing Music and enjoy my latest newsletter!
I had a wonderful trip to Ottawa where I played at 5 events in 4 days!!! I am so grateful to all my students and friends who participated in all these magical performances. I was thrilled to join with dancers from the Sacred Dance Guild for two of the events - the first a Morning Movement and Music Meditation and the other a beautiful performance at the incredible rock sculptures of John Ceprano.
Here is a picture of me and some of the Sacred Dancers at the sculptures at Remic Rapids. If you live in Ottawa or will be visiting there the sculptures will be standing until the river welcomes them back into the water, please go for a visit if you have the time....
I have a full fall of wonderful events coming up. I hope that you can join me for some of these Magical Musical Meditations.
On September 19th, I'll be offering a Heart Healing Music Meditation and Healing Music talk at Wonder Works at their new location at 25 Baldwin, here in Toronto. I'm thrilled that my friend David Price Francis will be joining me from New York and offering a guided meditation accompanied by my music.
Then I'm heading back up to wonderful Grail Springs in Bancroft for a week long workshop with David, September 21 to 26. If you can't come for the whole week I hope you can join us for a day or two at this magical location.
In October I'm playing every weekend, starting on October 4th at the Kalyana Yoga centre in Ottawa. I'll be playing with Mark Daniel, an amazing and gifted crystal and Tibetan bowl player. This Music Ceremony will be deeply healing, peaceful and beautiful. I look forward to playing with Mark again.

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.
