Personal and professional feedback:
Jo Buchanan - Hypnotherapist/Counsellor/Writer.
"I used nothing but your music Japetus during the five years I taught Meditation at Mulawa Maximum Security Prison and the Norma Parker Correctional Centre (formerly the Parramatta Female Factory). I conducted the meditations inside small concrete rooms with no windows to the outside world. The screaming and cursing that filled the corridors outside these rooms often made it very difficult. But as the women gradually learned to physically relax their bodies and quiet their minds, they discovered they could escape this harsh environment for precious periods of time. Your music was pivotal to achieving this. Their favourite and most requested tapes were The Radiant Self, Deep Space and Visions of Paradise.
The Radiant Self is my very favourite [recording] that you have ever produced, Jay. I also played it at every weekly Meditation class I facilitated and every workshop both here in Australian and in England. I don't think anything then, or now, can equal this. I cannot recommend it highly enough!!!"

"One thing I noticed about your work: it appears 'round' / 'whole'. You spent a lot of time honing it, revisited your CDs, and re-did the covers and the website, in order to present it and make it accessible to whoever looks. Thank you. In a world where so much is done haphazardly, the outer veneer made to look right, I feel that with you it's not just that, but also the core/ content/ heart is there as well. Thank you."
More to come...
