Strings of the Tao: A Unique Musical and Meditative Experience (New)
by Frantzis, Bruce
Publisher: North Atlantic Books
Book ID: 9781556438240, 1556438249
Usually available in 3-5 days
In a live performance, Taoist Lineage Master Bruce Frantzis chants never-before-recorded liturgies in ancient Chinese accompanied by former Kitaro violinist Steve Kindler on the seven-string violin.
During his training as a Taoist priest in China, Frantzis learned 3,000 liturgies, rich in vibrational overtones, as tools to activate and weave together the eight energy bodies in a human being. He is believed to be the only Westerner in the world to have studied this ancient practice.
Frantzis, whose meditation lineage is directly linked to that of Lao Tse--author of the "Tao Te Ching"--explains in detail how each liturgy he performs can help you achieve profound spiritual states as you meditate or practice energy work such as tai chi, chi gung, or yoga. Listen to these powerful liturgies to move into a deeply relaxed internal space, or just for fun. They can help you cultivate joy, balance, and compassion in your life.
