|The Story of Circle of Compassion|
My guest artist on Circle of Compassion is Chris Rosser on fingerstyle acoustic guitar. Chris is an amazing musician who is also our studio engineer. This combination of my flutes with acoustic guitar has a nurturing tranquility which surrounds you with a gentle embrace.
I love the way that this CD title came about. I was washing breakfast dishes one morning while discussing the title with my husband, Charlie. At first we thought it was going to be called Gentle Harmony. Charlie asked me, “What is needed in the world now, more than anything else?” My immediate response was, “Compassion.” A few days later, the words, Circle of Compassion floated into my awareness, and I knew that was the title.
I was thrilled to find the following quote by Dr. Albert Einstein:
“Our task must be to free ourselves
by widening our circle of compassion
to embrace all living creatures
and the whole of nature in its beauty.”
Compassion is a deep, heartfelt emotion that is described as “the quivering of the heart in response to the suffering of ourselves or others.” It is that tender, soft spot within each of us. Compassion is the heart of every authentic spiritual tradition. It is the heart of our personal and planetary healing.
The intent of this music is to quiet the mind and open the heart to an ever widening circle of compassion. May you open your heart as wide as the world, including all beings and all of nature in your circle of compassion.
