The bestselling author of The Mozart Effect

Every day our Spirit is tested by faith in what we see, feel, and do. From times of great pain and stress to those of joy and deep balance, sound is a constant companion to the Spirit. Our affirmations, prayers, and songs invite the Spirit to awaken and encourage us. Don Campbell, writer, musician, and interfaith minister invites us to look into our inner world and explore how we can use sound and music to make sacred contact with the mystical, the practical, and the creative.

This inspired book, which includes a link for audio download, will be a constant reminder of the many ways we can keep our faith steady in times of challenge. When doubt and fear come our way, the power of the Sound Spirit can bring us to better understanding and calmness.

And all is always now.

Página xi - In all ages I have inspired men with hope, kindled their love, given a voice to their joys, cheered them on to valorous deeds, and soothed them in times of despair. I have played a great part in the drama of life, whose end and purpose is the complete perfection of man's nature.
Página xi - Music I am MUSIC, most ancient of the arts. I am more than ancient; I am eternal. Even before life commenced upon this earth, I was here— in the winds and the waves. When the first trees and flowers and grasses appeared, I was among them. And when man came, I at once became the most delicate, most subtle, and most powerful medium for the expression of man's emotions. When men were little better than beasts, I influenced them for their good.
