Music emerged from the people of Earth in an integrated holistic way. It came from the fabric of all aspects of life, from birth through death, the space between, acknowledgement of ancestors and the world we live in.
As individuals, cultures and as a species, music is a carrier for the "stories" that we tell ourselves. Through these "stories", we continually re-create our lives and the unconscious patterns that have been handed down to us through the generations.
Music can also provide an immersive context to lose oneself in, to lose one's sense of separation. It can open doorways into what it means to be human beyond our personal, cultural and historic definitions, carrying the listener/participant on a flight of becoming.
