Meditations on the Angels – a music led healing meditation on the Seven Chakras
Meditations on the Angels has been described by listeners as original, powerful, beautiful and unique. Composed and performed by Richard Irwin, it is an album of seven contemplative pieces suitable for individual meditation and for healing.
The meditations were written with the intention of providing healing and have been successfully used for this purpose, but only for a limited number of subjects. One therapist indicated that the music seemed to connect well with autistic children. The music was inspired by the concept of Western concept of angel voices, combined with Eastern ideas about the benefits of meditation for health, balance and spiritual enlightenment. Each movement uses one of seven different ancient modal scales designed to harmonise with the seven Chakras. Unlike most meditation music, the effect is designed to engage the emotions.
