Graceful Passages is a CD of spoken wisdom and beautiful music that was designed to help people facing loss, terminal illness, or end-of-life transitions–their own or someone they care for. 

 


Graceful passeages.jpgOriginally released in 2000, it was created to reduce anxiety and fears and to provide a “sound sanctuary” and a sense of calm and acceptance for patients, family members and care providers during difficult times.  The combination of words and music is a powerful way of letting listeners
open to the process of letting go and being in the present moment.

 

The narrations are by a variety of healers, doctors, and spiritual guides that span many cultures and faiths, including: death and dying pioneer, the late Elisabeth Kubler-Ross; spiritual icon Ram Dass; Buddhist teacher Thich Nhat Hanh; Franciscan monk Maximillian Mizzi; and Rabbi Zalman Schacter-Shalomi. 

 

The music was written by Emmy-winning composer Gary Malkin and co-produced by healing music pioneer Michael Stillwater. 

 

The Graceful Passages set also comes with an instrumental CD and an illustrated book that includes the words from the narrations. It’s a thoughtful gift for someone who may need this kind of loving and gentle support.
