Recorded in my friend's rustic lodge in early spring of 2013, in the forests outside Berkeley Springs, West Virginia. I secluded myself from the outside world for a few days to cleanse physically/spiritually/emotionally, connect more deeply with nature, and to record these tracks. It was a great few days of shifts and insights. I spent a lot of time in meditation, drinking tea, journaling, drawing, creating field recordings, and taking pictures of nature.
The album artwork is created from a photo I took from the forest surrounding the lodge.
forest field recordings, vocal drones, native american log drums, frame drums, djembe, shakers, rattles, wooden frog guiro, claves
Please in joy!
Some recommended activities while listening to this album:
meditating, going inward, journaling, journeying, moving the body intuitively, shaking free stress and toxic energies, and drinking tonic and cleansing herbs.

Thank you Jon Thomas for allowing me the time at your inspirational space to renew and record!
