Have an Hour of Serenity - Any Time You Want!

(5 out of 5 stars)
"Reiki is a technique for stress reduction and relaxation that allows everyone to tap into an unlimited supply of "life force energy" to improve health and enhance the quality of life. I've had a couple of treatments and found them beneficial. This music was developed for this purpose, as were other CD's by this group. However, this music stands on it's own as peaceful and serene. The melodies are subtle and thematic, with occasional repetition. Much of this is in major keys and resolves wonderfully to major chords throughout. The tempo is usually in place and can be described as deliberate. The primary instrumentation: piano, acoustic guitar, violin, flutes and saxophones gives this a neo-classical flavor. Additional instrumentation includes "singing bowls" and what sounds like bells. While there are different movements, this CD is configured as one 62 minute piece. I feel peaceful every time I listen to this. I have found it useful as a background for meditation and prayer as well as enhancement for relaxation. It's also great music for the office, since it is very calming and subtle. I work in an open cubicle, so usually I have to keep the music low. This is ideal for soft background music. My son uses it occasionally as music for helping induce sleep, all the more remarkable, since his tastes in music hardly ever overlap.The New Age music category is home for some very bad music. On the other had, there is extremely good music in this category for the seeker - one, like me, who looks for music to enhance meditation and prayer. There is also music with properties for calming and relaxation. This CD does each very well, and is an example of the best of this category."
Flawlessly Beautiful Music

"Most new age music is so unbearably cheesy that it makes me cringe out of embarrassment, while the non-cheesy remainder often feels fluffy and insubstantial. Sometimes a new age song will be so beautiful, and then it will change key for no reason, destroying the composition. It has been very difficult for me to find new age music suitable for meditational/spiritual practices. Fortunately, a local new age book store had a section set up where I was able to listen to dozens of the most popular new age CDs. One album, "Reiki - The Light Touch", instantly captured my heart with its soft and beautiful composition. It is essentially one song with a ten or fifteen minute cycle. This song repeats itself, with the occasional minor variation, for about an hour. It is far better than anything else from Merlin's Magic (Andreas Mock) with the exception of "The Heart of Reiki", and perhaps "Elements of Rejuvenation"."Reiki - The Light Touch" is especially suitable for enhancing practices such as Qi Gong, which become boring as soon as the novelty of doing something new has worn off. The music easily blends into the background, subtly modifying the atmosphere, while not demanding too much attention from the listener. The song itself feels very deep and mystical, almost crystalline in its perfection. I often feel sanctified by simply listening to it. It's that beautiful! I would also recommend "The Heart of Reiki", which follows a similar song structure."
