The first album consists of three tracks- “Mother Bear”, “Loving Dog”, and “Magical Rabbit”.

Arianna: In the recent years I have been very inspired by Celtic and other forms of traditional music, and this song came about after re-stringing a zither we obtained last year. Upon playing, it simply flowed out. I call it ‘Mountains’, because that’s what the song felt like to me (I think the echoes enhance that feeling). Kai said it made her think of unicorns, and I added that to the companion art. So please enjoy this musical piece, and know there will be more to come. And because it has no real lyrics in it, I would be very intrigued to hear what you hear or interpret within this song as well!
“Spirit Animal Meditations” is a new project we have just completed. I had a stroke of inspiration to do something different than the usual art I create, and the idea of recording a guided meditation came to me. Because of all of the stress and upset that has been going on in the world for many months now, I know a lot of us are needing a way to get calm, regain some clarity and just breathe! Adults are surely stressed, but this has been very hard on children as well. A guided meditation seemed like a good way to offer a space for some relaxation and centering to take place. Kai suggested I use the animal themed meditations she had written awhile ago. These were written with kids in mind, though adults can enjoy them as well! I had a good time narrating Kai’s lovely journeys with the Mother Bear, the Loving Dog, and the Magical Rabbit. And as always, Avery’s audio ambience adds a calming background music. I am very pleased with how these turned out, and I feel this was a project I was called to do during this difficult time. So please enjoy these, whether you are a child or adult. I encourage parents to participate in the meditations with your children. We wish you all love, courage and clarity in these changing times.
