I had the recent pleasure of viewing a DVD called, Be Your Light. The subtitle on the cover is, ‘Igniting the light within ourselves ignites the light in others.’

Be Your Light is a New Zealand-made documentary covering such ground-breaking topics as:

  • The power and effect of cellular memory
  • Goal setting and resonance
  • Powerful healing techniques

It was filmed throughout New Zealand at the Our New Eden gatherings of the film’s producer, Mary Dwen, and her husband, Tony. Music is skilfully provided by The O’Connors.

Amongst the many inspiring contributors is Gary Cook. He tells a delightful story of a man, legally blind, who was able to read an article of Gary’s in a magazine as clearly as if he had the perfect vision of a child. The rest of the magazine’s type was a blur to him.

I came away from watching the 45 minute production feeling uplifted and, frankly, proud to be living in a country populated by so many visionaries with their feet on the earth and their heads in the heavens. This is highly recommended viewing for anyone wishing to find ways to contribute to a saner, healthier planet and intent on reconnecting with nature.

Dear Friends, Family and Fans,

Prepare to have your breath taken away! For over two years I have traveled
to many of the world’s most pristine locations—Greenland, Patagonia,
Hawaii, Iceland, Peru, Alaska, The Caribbean, New Zealand, and the Canadian
Rockies—capturing the earth’s beauty in ways that are rarely seen. Inspired by
decades of National Geographic specials, the BBC Planet Earth series and the
majestic beauty of our terrestrial home, Earth Songs gently guides the viewer
on a journey of ageless wisdom, inspiring poetry and stunning footage of
Mother Earth at her finest.

As a first time filmmaker, I was extremely fortunate to have legendary
actor, Michael York (Three Musketeers, Logan’s Run, Cabaret Austin Powers
—Thanks Michael), narrate the documentary for me and equally fortunate to have
Academy Award winning composer Brian Keane arrange the film’s musical score.
Brian also enlisted the help of Ira Spiegel to do sound effects (Brian and
Ira are consider THE “A Team” of Ken and Ric Burns PBS fame) and needless to say, they are now my “A Team” as well. What began as a documentary film
has now become two (2) movies. The first is a 45-minute documentary film,
narrated by renowned actor, Michael York and scored by Brian Keane. The second feature is a relaxing (healing) 55-minute meditation experience through an alchemy of breathtaking scenery set to an enchanting musical score by Grammy Award winning artists including Michael Hoppe, Secret Garden, Brian Keane, Keola Beamer and Craig Armstrong.

Earth Songs was created as a unique relaxation DVD for these troubled times
we are now living. Like Seasons of the Heart, Earth Songs will be made
available to hospitals across the country for in-house cable programming for cancer patients and the chronically ill. And… one dollar from the sale of each DVD will be donated to the American Cancer Society. I am also in the
process of lining up some premier events across the country next year including Omaha, Jacksonville, Columbus, and Boulder (please see my the upcoming events page of my website for more details).
There is also talk about airing Earth Songs on some PBS affiliate…Fingers
crossed on that one!

As so many people who have seen demos and rough cuts have said, “EARTH
SONGS will take your breath away.” You can preview the first chapter for both the documentary and meditation features on YouTube.com links by going to:

• Earth Songs Documentary Introduction

• Earth Songs Meditation (song: Prairie Moon by Michael Hoppe)

• Earth Songs Movie Trailer:

Total Running Time: 105 minutes

Cost: S25.00 (plus S&H) Enclosed is an order form and soon, on my website,
there will be a means to purchase EARTH SONGS through Paypal as well .
