Along The Way - Sampler
Simple spirit folk songs about paradoxes, humiliations, follies, inspirations and revelations Along The Way.
The nineteen tracks on this sample CD were selected from the full Along The Way collection of over fifty original songs and poems. These songs were not written for performance or public presentation but were originated as part of a multifaceted practice of self knowledge and creative spiritual “journaling”. Occasionally, they were shared as offerings amongst a small private circle of work friends travelling along their way. However, as it became apparent that many of the songs happened to be both listenable and even encouraging of such efforts, the authors agreed to risk exposure to a wider audience. Heard in this context, they offer a glimpse into each of the songwriter's inner challenges, methods and revelations. These songs as first recorded were obviously not rehearsed ( or intended for the general public ) and they also indicate the level of trust between such work friends. It is our wish to encourage others in their inner work and whether practised or not, to consider improvising original material based on their experience.
