Music, Healing and Transformation

Healing Art and Music Video

As a couple, we have long worked together to join our creativity to effect positive change and transformation. We created this video as a companion piece to our book, Messages to the Heart, Reflections of Beauty and Truth. The video joins my healing pastel landscapes with  Phil’s original soothing musical composition, “Footprints In Time.”  We hope you can relax with the video and allow the music and art to wash over you, and bring you a feeling of peace and well being.

Emergence, A Meditative Journey Through the Seasons-Music and Meditation CD

Phil has been playing piano and writing original reflective music and believes in the power of music to heal and transform. As a coach he has has used meditative music with clients and in leading workshops. His CD, Emergence, A Meditative Journey Through the Seasons, recommended by John Assaraf of the Movie, The Secret, takes you on a transformative journey through each of the seasons, Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer. The hour long CD includes guided visualizations and soothing original musical selections. You will be prompted to release negative states and emotions, and connect to your dreams and visions of an authentic, empowered life.

Here’s what a few noted experts in healing medicine and life coaching had to say about the Emergence CD,

” I had a chance to listen to Emergence, and loved the “seasons” approach. Great Job!”  John Assaraf of the hit movie, THE SECRET, Author, Speaker and advocate of meditation.

The Emergence CD is beautiful and imaginative. With the cycles of nature as a metaphor, Phil Okrend leads you on a gentle and sensuous guided journey through Fall (release); Winter (germinating); Spring (blossoming); and Summer (fullness). You can listen to the full CD or choose the track you want. Not only is Okrend a coach, he is also a musician who wrote and performed the original music on the CD. Like most guided meditations,the music is underneath the guided journey. What is unique about this CD is that the music is repeated in its entirety following each meditation. What a gift this is; the music is beautiful and allows you to linger in that relaxed state. You can also let it take you on a journey of its own. Use this CD in group work that focuses on personal exploration and transition or in retreat settings.”  Choice, The Magazine of Professional Coaching –  By Marcy Nelson Garrison, MA, CPCC

“The connection between mind and body in medicine and life is incontrovertible. In our everyday hectic and stressful lives, it is easy to feel out of sync with ourselves and our own natural rhythms. This CD helps to facilitate a reconnection with our true selves, contribute to one’s health and wellness, and possibly serve in the prevention of disease.”  Lisa Tolnitch, MD, FACS, Tolnitch Surgical Associates
