Sacred Space, Sacred Sound
The Acoustic Mysteries of Holy Places

by
Susan
Elizabeth Hale
Foreword by
Don Campbell


This book explores the acoustics of sacred space as an avenue for understanding. It is about music powerful enough to transform us into a greater reality. Based on Susan's life-long experience as a singer, 27 years as a music therapist, and 10 years of journeys across the globe researching sacred sites, this work discusses the desecration and disharmony of our current world while demonstrating how people are building new sacred sites with resonant qualities.

UPDATE ON THE CHUSHUL ORPHANAGE
By Tim Boyd

bradden bk
During our travels in Tibet we had an opportunity to visit with the children at the Chushul orphanage. A number of you expressed a desire to contribute to the proposed building project there. I have hesitated to contact you about it until I felt that we had a workable plan. I am happy to report that at last we are ready to move. Read more
