Earlier this year, Irish author, Noel Keating, approached me about creating a musical resource inspired by his book Meditation With Children.

Six years ago, when Noel retired from the education sector in Ireland, he chose to devote his time and energy toward bringing meditation into schools across Ireland. 

The children who Noel spoke to and quotes in his book have noticed intuitions in themselves, that they and other children are inherently good, that they are less likely to go to that place where they feel like they will "snap", that "meditation is a map, and the destination is who you are".

I read the manuscript and was moved by the stories and was prompted to do this project because I have children, at this point, age 4 and 2, and giving them the skills to be in touch with their inner lives and find ways to be compassionately grounded, is of precious, personal importance to me.

I want this project to sound good, which means I want to work with a great engineer to mix and master. I want to work with at least 2 musicians including a cellist, which often takes quite a bit of time to create layers and sonic quality. 

I love to employ incredible musicians who are committed to their craft and to their families. To be a musician in this world is a very challenging path, but some of the best parents and people I know are professional musicians who are dedicated to both bringing beauty into the world, and to their families. A tough balance to strike. 

It normally takes a (VERY) bare minimum of $1000/song to record an album and I will be trying to do this on a very thin budget without losing the quality.

Please consider supporting this project that will hopefully bring much grounding, healing, hope and inner abundance to many children around the world.

Risks and challenges

The only risk is that we won't reach our goal.
The challenge will be to make a project with a limited budget!
