I listened to it for the first last evening and while I was listening I had a fabulous experience. I saw them (the Elementals that is)and again this morning upon awaking as I looked out at the trees in my yard. The wind was making the leaves dance I saw their faces again, this time reflected eveywhere in the leaves. Thanks for helping me establish a closer connection to these beings. I've been consciously working to establish a connection with them through CRT meditations and I could "feel" their presence but this is the first time I've had a visual experience of them. They are so "charming".
After being pummeled through the mercurial rapids of the DNA activation series, Sanctuary spills the listener into a shimmering pool of active stillness, vibrations rising gently from a deep, deep serenity birthed from the rapids.

I just wanted to say thank you for producing the Sanctuary CD. I purchased it from you some time ago and have been listening to it a bit lately. It is such a beautiful beautiful CD. It really does evoke certain feelings (not sure how to describe them) but at times very profound. I love this music. Exceptional!!
This music captures the essence of all that I enjoy when I am being in alignment with our Creator, Infinite Intelligence, God, and I like to call Him my Heavenly Father because I identify with Him that way.When I listen to this music, I find myself with Him, like a son with his father, holding his hand, looking into each other’s eyes, communicating love and just walking, enjoying all that comes my way, knowing by faith, that all that I am walking into, I have within me all that I need to fully handle everything that comes my way and this music—sanctuary--speaks just that, peace within and confidence—the boldness of a lion , because He is with me and goes before me to bring about those events that are necessary to ever evolve into the full essence of my being…

GO HOME, HOME BABY, GO HOME — Here we have an album inspired to guide you to the reality of my favorites subject: THE PARADISE WITHIN. These are musical compositions centered on keyboard stylings, but synthesizer-based in sensibility and texture. What we have here is an hour of extreme inner planes paradise done in the signature style of an artist who apparently has been doing this sort of thing for a number of lifetimes. i hear so much Lemuria in this that it brings a fond tear to my eye. it is amazing in this day and age that we have reached the point of reconnecting so far back! and yes there is Atlantean influence also. of course, we find more modern idioms, but i'm really talking about the feel of the album. it comfortably compares to the ambient works of David and Steve Gordon; i'm thinking primarily of "Oneness," "Sanctuary," and the "Garden Of Serenity" albums. comparison to Michael Hammer naturally comes to mind, but Shapeshifter is much more narrative and story-telling. yes, i think there is a narrative here but i am still exploring. i think it is about how to bring the inner paradise to the outside world, but still testing at this point... while i am an avid collector of all of Shapeshifter's work, the recent "Shamballa," "Rejuva" albums, plus this new one, "Sanctuary," establish this artist as a primary source for Paradise vibrations and certainly as essential picks for any ambient room i would consider doing. we can file this one in new age or healing music, but i think it fair to call it true Visionary music, as the company's name implies.

Note from Shapeshifter: Darv has many pages with many great links to music that you will enjoy if you enjoy ours. Take a look. Darv's linkfest for synthesists specializing in sounds inducing alternate states of awareness. Brainwave Pulses, Harmonic Resonance, Special Tunings. The reason these are called "sound arts" and not "music" is that much of it is not melodic, but instead organized sound which is designed to induce mind states via the entrainment principle of physics.
