Music to Walk the Labyrinth: Synthesizer Music for the Inner Journey.

Richard Shulman

This music was spontaneously composed and performed at a Labyrinth Walk sponsored by the Labyrinth Project of Connecticut, Inc. A labyrinth is a particular kind of maze with only one pathway leading to and from its center. There are no choices and you cannot get lost in it.

Labyrinths offer an opportunity for walking meditation and can be seen as metaphors for life. Many find that walking a labyrinth helps them to enter into a natural meditative state. This walking meditation can be used for reflection and problem solving, as well as for spiritual and psychological growth.

Music to Walk the Labyrinth is a continuous 47-minute synthesizer improvisation, created and performed specifically to enhance this experience.

Composed, performed and recorded by Richard Shulman April 23, 1999 at the First Presbyterian Church of New Canaan, CT.
Mastered by: Steven Smith at Soundsmiths Mastering, Asheville, NC.
Producer: Richard Shulman
Associate Producer: Helen Curry
Total time: 47:50

Do not drive while listening to this music. This music is best used for meditation.

Dedicated to the Divine which makes Itself known through walking the Labyrinth.

Founded in 1993, The Labyrinth Project of Connecticut, Inc. offers community
labyrinth walks using both the 11-circuit Chartres labyrinth and the
Classical 7-circuit labyrinth on a regular basis. In addition to an on-going
prison ministry, The Project offers workshops wherever invited, and has a
Ceremonial Labyrinth specifically for labyrinth weddings.

“The pure synthesizer music, what I call classic New Age, sweetly drifts along and is excellent for many kinds of bodywork as well as meditation or relaxation after a stressful day. Music to Walk the Labrinth is a continuous piece of music nearly 50 minutes long. Long, resonant tones soothe the psyche while calming the heartbeat, and angelic chords evoke the eternal peace of the heavens…. For an experience of soul healing, be sure to walk a labyrinth with Shulman’s music.”

11:11 Piano Meditations for Awakening

To Listen to the Music

11:11 
Piano Meditations for Awakening 

Richard Shulman 

I first heard about 11:11 in 1991 through Erik Berglund, who introduced me to Solara (http://www.nvisible.com) who organized and facilitated the 11:11 planetary activation in 1992. I have often found myself looking at a digital clock and seeing 11:11, and I’ve enjoyed resonating with the inner light and love within all whenever I see this symbol. 

Several synchronicities have led me to record this set of musical meditations for experiencing the 11:11 vibrations on a deeper level. On 11/11, 2006 I performed at an 11:11 event in Asheville, NC and then the following June I met Zera Starchild who invited me to create music for an 11:11 gift basket she is marketing. So during the second half of 2007 at 11:11 am and pm Eastern Standard Time, I would sit at the piano, ask for music for the highest good with regard to 11:11, and then play and record the music I heard in response. 

Then I was invited to play for a healing session at the United Research Light Center, in Black Mountain, NC, where I often perform, on 11/11/2007. The music just happened to be professionally recorded that day, and I was gifted with a CD of what I had played. After hearing that music and starting the process of producing the finished CD, I went to a theatre performance. The box office attendent gave me seat 11 in the 11th row! That was way – more confirmation than I expected! 

I hope you will enjoy these piano meditations and that they help you to deepen in your awareness of the oneness behind all life and in your sacred journey. 

Much Love, 

Richard 

Special Thanks to Solara, for her work with the 11:11 activation, to Gillian MacBeth-Louthan who organized the 11/11/06 Quantum Awakening event, to the UR Light Center, and to Zera Starchild of Doorway Publications and Anara Brinmere who initially asked me for recordings of 11:11 music.

MEDITATION:

A suggested meditation/visualization for use with the music (for either program 1 or 2)

[As you work with each area, see or feel the energy of the chakra, in front and behind the physical body as well as within it. If you find the energy moving in a non circular pattern, gently and persistently encourage it to move through any blockages until it smooths out, using your hands to guide it, if necessary.]

As the music begins, sit comfortably in a chair with the spine supporting itself, and the feet flat on the floor. Let the feet relax and become soft. Take a few deep breaths, letting out tension with a sigh.

Visualize a beautiful red ball of energy at the base of the spine, permeating, and enlivening the hips and pelvis. Feel or visualize this beautiful red color moving down through your legs and feet, and then deep into the Earth. Welcome the loving energy of Mother Earth responding to your energy, moving into your feet, legs and pelvis, and relaxing and rejuvinating your lower body. Allow the Earth’s energy to accompany you through the body, supporting you as you work with each chakra.

When the music changes key, visualize or feel an orange ball of light forming in the belly just below the navel, expanding, vitalizing, and spinning clockwise (top of ball towards your left) until the color fills the lower body. With your intent, make it bright, vital, and joyful.

At the key change, visualize a bright yellow light expanding from the solar plexus, behind the bottom center of the rib cage, expanding, strengthening, and enlivening. See this ball of light spinning clockwise, as bright as the sun.

At the center of the chest, known as the heart center, visualize an emerald green ball of light expressing pure unconditional love. Allow this love/light to expand, filling the chest and radiating out the arms and through the hands, embracing all that you are…all that is.

Bring your consciousness to the base of the throat and experience a blue light of truth expressing the Divine nature of your love. See this blue ball of light expand and spin clockwise, bringing greater clarity and effectiveness to your expression.

At and behind the center of the forehead visualize a ball of indigo light spinning and expanding. Allow Mother Earth’s energy to rise up through the neck, filling the head, and supporting the vision/hearing/sensing in the indigo ball of light.

At the top of the head, see a transcendent violet light expanding into a ball, filling and surrounding the entire head. Feel or see it connect with a golden light above the head.

Bring the golden light above the head down into a focussed ball at the center of the head, between the ears. Connect it to the brow center in front and to the crown center above. Then bring this golden light to the heart center. Reconnect with Mother Earth, visualizing a golden light ascending from her core to your heart center, meeting and connecting with the light from above. While maintaining your focus at the heart center, allow the energies of Heaven and Earth to circulate freely, nourishing your entire being. Notice how centered you feel while connecting with and being supported from below and above. Remember this feeling, so you can call it forth whenever you choose.

Gently become aware of your surroundings and gradually begin to move. Make sure you are feeling your feet firmly on the ground before resuming any normal activities.
