“Recording the music for this CD was a dance unto itself. The invitation was to let the music become the dance and to play from very clear images and archetypes. Melissa’s vision was palpable, pure and and energizing. Along with Meagan’s musical midwifery skills and the deep love and practice shared by the musical team, making this CD was a birth like none other!”
— Eyal Rivlin, Musician and Educator
