Music of Jesse Kalu
"If you ever spent quiet time
in the vast empty space of the southwestern desert, you will understand
the essence of Jesse Kalu's meditative journey. One in Spirit brings
the sweet sounds of nature alive through Kalu's mystical hand-made
bamboo flutes. The wind, water, whales, dolphins, hawks & eagles
gently call out to your spirit, slowing your mind and inviting you
into the ancient wisdom of nature's heart. The healing powers of this
recording gently vibrate into the center of your soul to melt away
the tensions of your mind & emotions. The flow of the flute melodies
transports your spirit to the magical red rocks of Sedona, where this
sound therapy was inspired & developed. Peace, tranquility and
transcendence is the experience that One in Spirit offers." Michael

Wray Metaphysical Art Originals
A meditation in pictures, colors, shapes, and forms.
