Welcome to “A Sacred Beauty”: Seeds of Sacred Wisdom carried inward on the gentle breeze of beautiful music.

Through the pure, simple, unadorned beauty of the piano this will take you on an inspiring journey to your dreams, strengths and talents, inner joy and beauty. You are invited to a musical, meditative, poetic experience featuring Lori-Ann's piano compositions and spiritual wisdom facilitating a quiet mind and an open heart.

“A Sacred Beauty” increases inner peace and deep relaxation, facilitating wellness. The healing intention that Lori-Ann embeds in the music, invites the body to rejuvenate and renew itself – mind, body and Spirit. The music evokes insights, inspiration and meaningful inner connections, while the long silences and absence of clapping enhances the contemplative ambiance and deep inward movement.

The music, the words and the stillness create a beautiful healing vessel in which to simply be our true self, share in the potent energy that arises and contemplate what is truly important in our lives. In this space, Grace gently tends to us and anything is possible.

“The heart suffers when it cannot see and touch beauty, but beauty is not shy, it is synonymous with existence.” Hafiz


The place of peace is within. Yet, in this hectic world, we spend much of our time out of ourselves, stressed and unbalanced. Take the music bridge from “out there” back to “in here”, the only place lasting peace can be found. It is a personal journey of beauty, wellness and heart. From this deep well, we can rest and replenish ourselves

As you listen simply reflect on what is truly important in your life as it comes into gentle focus via seven contemplations. Each piece of music is introduced with an inspirational, spiritual message to assist you with focus and perspective. Please use them if they resonate with you, but otherwise, go where the music invites you. Each time you travel with this music, you will be met exactly where you are and your psyche will find what it needs. This is a journey for your soul not your mind. Allow yourself to be just as you are.

Initially, I recommend quietly listening to the program in it’s entirety. After that, like a daily meditation practice, it can be included in your life, in bits or it’s entirety. It really does not matter. Just fit “A Sacred Beauty” in when and how you can, but especially when you are drawn to finding peace; driving, washing the dishes, walking in nature, doing yoga, meditating, etcetera. Peace and solitude are waiting for you.

Track Name: A Sacred Beauty - Spoken
Sacred Beauty awakens us to the Truth of who are are. The Truth of who we are and beauty are one and the same. As the mind drops away and the heart opens, we can rest deeply in this Truth.

Beauty inspires, elevates and transports us to those incandescent realms of revelation, peace, joy and freedom. In this space, we can experience connection to ourselves, to our loved ones and to the world. Peace and joy are our natural state.

Give your attention now to the profound meaning of Beauty and its place in your life. Allow the music to be a bridge to connect you wholeheartedly to your True Self, Let yourself sink deeply into the music and be drawn into a space of "quiet mind" and "open heart".

Rest deeply here, while Grace tends to you and anything is possible.
Track Name: Silence as a Portal - Spoken
Our natural state of deep peace is felt when we focus awareness on silence. When we pay attention to silence we find stillness within ourself.

Everything comes out of the stillness. There is an underlying calmness.

Eckhart Tolle suggests that "As you listen to the music which follows, also listen to the silence in between the sounds and the silence that is there underneath the sounds."
Track Name: Silence as a Portal, cont - Spoken
Then Eckhart Tolle asks, "What happens inside you, when you notice silence?

An interesting thing happens. Alertness increases and you are fully present in this moment of noticing.

... Just look and listen. Wisdom comes with the ability to be still. No more is needed."

As we continue, be aware of the dimension of stillness both within you and underneath the music from where it emerges."
Track Name: Appreciation - Spoken
The more we appreciate things, the happier and less stressed we are.

How deeply nourishing is it to appreciate yourself and others. To be appreciated and to give appreciation is nurturing and energizing.

Let's do this now. Look for all the great things you can appreciate about yourself, your loved ones, your neighbours, the waitress at the restaurant, the delivery guy. Everyone.

In your life, moment to moment, actively share your appreciation. We all flourish with appreciation.
Track Name: Cherish your Dreams - Spoken
"The greatest achievement was at first and for a time, a dream. The oak sleeps in the acorn, the bird waits in the egg and in the highest vision of the soul a waking angel stirs. Dreams are the seedlings of realities"
James Allen

What are your greatest dreams? What are you most passionate about? What is it that you and only you can give the world? And remember, dreams reflect our own unique hearts' longing and are different for every person.

What would you do if you were not afraid? If a genie gave you three wishes, what would they be? What would you do with your life if you could do anything?

You may already be working toward your dreams, so crystallize them and bring even more intention to them. In a world that is not always supportive, take a chance, follow your dreams anyway.
Track Name: Cherish your Dreams, cont - Spoken
James Allen continues, "Cherish your visions, cherish your ideals, cherish the music that stirs in your heart. The beauty that forms in your mind, the loveliness that drapes your purest thoughts. For out of them will grow all delightful conditions, all heavenly environment. Of these, if you remain true to them, your world will at last be built.

We each come with our own unique gifts to the universe and serve to the world. No matter how humble or how grand, each unique dream gets woven into a collective tapestry that is beautiful and beyond our comprehension. It is not for us to judge our dreams, only for us to follow them faithfully.

When we listen deeply to our heart's longing, when we value our visions and our ideals, we awaken the dream that rests in the seed, and in the highest vision of the soul, a waking angel stirs.
Track Name: Attraction - Spoken
"Every thought vibrates, every thought radiates a signal, and every thought attracts a matching signal back. That which is like unto itself is drawn. And so, you might see that all thoughts that match one another line up." - Ester and Jerry Hicks

So, what are you attracting in your life? What signal are YOU tuned to?
When you tune into love, appreciation, service, kindness, abundance, dreams, creativity, truth, harmony, peace and gratitude... these are the things that will flow into your life.

Allow yourself to tune into song of those things now.
Track Name: Attraction cont. - Spoken
While unlocking the Law of Attraction can seem a mystery, this quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson assures us that it is within us to manifest our desires.

He states "There's nothing capricious in nature, and the implanting of a desire indicates that its gratification is in the constitution of the creature that feels it."

Basically, what we long for is within our reach. It is ours to manifest. So, lets faithfully tend to our positive thoughts and trust in the mystery of the Law of Attraction.
Track Name: Attraction, cont - Spoken
Let's deeply consider this quote about attraction from the Hicks':
"The optimal creative vantage point in to become one who is happy with that which you are and with that which you have - while at the same time being eager for more."

This is a lovely invitation to be happy with yourself and with your life while you are creating your dreams.

Can you just let yourself be, let everything be just as it is right now, and quietly feel an optimistic attraction for the unfolding of your life?
Track Name: Enthusiasm - Spoken
"Enthusiasm is one of the most powerful engines of success. When you do a thing, do it with all your might. Put your whole soul into it. Stomp it with your own personality. Be active, be energetic, be enthusiastic and faithful, and you will accomplish your objective. Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

So really enjoy this precious life of yours.
Track Name: Enthusiasm Cont'd - Spoken
Did you know the word "enthusiasm" comes from the two little Greek words en and theos? Enthusiasm literally means, "God within."

So, joyously and enthusiastically do the next little thing in front of you. Imagine children playing with an abundance of Universal energy freely flowing through them and you will be on the right track.
Track Name: Enthusiasm, Cont'd - Spoken
Eckhart Tolle explains: "Enjoyment of what you are doing, combined with a goal or vision that you work toward, becomes enthusiasm.

See yourself inspiring countless people with your work and enriching their lives. Feel how that activity enriches or deepens not only your life but also that of countless others. Feel yourself being an opening through which energy flows from the unmanifested source of all life through you for the benefit of all." E.T.
Track Name: Prayer for Humanity - Spoken
During this meditative journey, you have been reflecting on what is truly important in your life. Now, let us imagine now the world that you dream of and long for. Resting slowly in this still, calm place. Visualize, contemplate, and breathe into those dreams and visions of a better world.
Track Name: Prayer for Humanity, Cont'd - Spoken
Sacred Beauty allows the mind to drop away and we rest deeply in the Truth of who are are. Peace and joy are our natural state. In this state, we experience connection to ourselves, to our loved ones, to our communities and to the world. Remembering our global community, seven billion unique people just like us around the globe, sharing one Mother Earth and one Spiritual heartbeat. Let's join our hands with theirs in a collective prayer of hope for peace and beauty for all. One world, one family, one heart.
