Editorial Reviews

Review

"Listening to the music was very soothing to me, like a calm after the storm." -- Birthing Mother

It took me away from the hospital to a place of peace and beauty. (Pre-surgery Patient) -- Birthing Mother

Listening to the music was very soothing to me, like a calm after the storm. She brings a sensitivity and quality to her music... -- Music Therapist

Product Description

Medieval chants, ancient melodies and Celtic music create a serene and therapeutic audio-sensual experience. Non-metered, natural tones of the harp ebb and flow to bring about peace within. This music has helped those suffering from illness, injury, and life's transitions such as birthing and dying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply soothing and healing December 22, 2001
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Stella Benson is the best. While recovering from surgery, I played this and found my pain greatly reduced. I teach a workshop on journaling with imaging for survivors of abuse. I usually play this when the class start their writing. I don't know for sure WHY this works, I just know it does. So many of the participants have asked for information on ordering this cd. It not only seems to heal the body, but the spirit, too. Amazingly, I have seen my bp drop while listening to this music!

There just isn't enough I can say about how wonderful the cd is.
Thank you Stella for producing it for us.

*****UPDATE*****

Since i wrote this review, I have had radiation and chemo treatments for two different kinds of cancer, basically having only 6 weeks off from January of 2011 until August 2011. My radiation team had a cd player and invited clients to bring their favorite cds to help them through their treatments. This cd was my choice. It helped me to tolerate the ackward positions I had to be in and not move. It was such a comfort for me and I wanted to mention it here.

5.0 out of 5 stars David A. Young, The New Times, Seattle, April, 1999 April 17, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
"The freeform, non-metered playing (there is no overdubbing or accompaniment) comes as close to a harp equivalent to the likes of, say, a George Winston as I've found. ...At least as important as her musical artistry is the obvious purity of Benson's intent. The love in her heart flows through her sensitive fingers, as the strings of the harp are struck, they are imbued with her intention; as they vibrate, they refine and amplify it. ...Not all of us can afford to have a harpist come to our bedside... but now we can have this gorgeous CD in our musical 'medicine chest' for when we need it".

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful soothing music for infants and mothers. February 10, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I often played this CD when my infant children could not be calmed in the middle of the night. It has an immediate soothing effect. The artist has a wonderful gift in interpreting the music in a manner which calms the soul. My favorite selections on this CD are "Dum Estas Inchoatur" and "Jubilemus Exultemus".

Highly recommend this Cd. Harp music is so soothing and really interfers with stress you are experiencing...I started buying more cds of harp music. Supposedly even our four legged companions benefit from the harp's soothing sounds.

5.0 out of 5 stars An unexpected treasure February 11, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My daughter has severe epilepsy (seizure disorder). I received this as a gift and put it on to play. In all her nine years, my daughter has requested to listen to only three CDs...and this is the third. It hasn't stopped her seizures but it seems to make her feel better. It is calming and it helps her sleep. It makes us all feel relaxed and able to attend to our daily activities in peace. We play it in the background all the time. Highly recommended for all!

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful way to unwind !! February 20, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Stella Benson has created such warmth and beauty to her music, that it has prompted me to want to share my thoughts with others. From beginning to end these 2 Cd's, The Healer's Way Volumes 1 & 2 Solo Harp music , are filled with peaceful , healing and relaxing melodies . I can't imagine someone who is looking for what the titles of her cds state, calming and soothing music for anxiety and pain, not inducing the environment that allows healing to occur. If you are fond of medieval Celtic folk, then this will be an added bonus , as you are transported to another time, as you go inward with each listening. Even the pictured sleeves of these cds have been chosen wisely. Music is so important to many of our lives. If you feel this is the case with yourself and you want a balm that hopefully will assist you on your journey, then I highly recommend this series. Whether you are listening to them for meditation, bodywork, tai chi yoga etc or just for peaceful background music you will be richly rewarded . Thank you Stella I look forward to other releases.

Got both I and II for Christmas and was disappointed. The harp pieces seem random with no discernable melody lines. It's quiet but not very soothing.
