Compassion’s Caress CD

This album of healing music is similar to the album Soft Light, but with important differences.  Soft Light is for the times when the lostness and emptiness leaves an pit of despair.  Compassion’s Caress is for those times when the heart ache is overwhelming.  This is the musical form of feeling held and embraced in your suffering.


  1. Solemn Greetings Solemn Greetings Beautiful Soul honors the "you" that you may not even know you are. You pieced together an identity for the world, but there are greater depths of who you really are - an incredibly beautiful soul that is ever so much more than your identity. Receive the honor due you, casting aside the inner voices that deride and disbelieve who you truly are -- you are formed of the “stuff of Love,” which is why your heart aches, and why the harshness of life can leave you feeling worn, beaten down, wounded or suffering. 7:10
  2. Hold Me God Hold Me God and the next piece, Hear My Plea, are where you can lift up all that is suffering within you. You are a vessel of Love, and you can bring your suffering to the very source of Love and be replenished. A person suffering from medical conditions that have little relief, a child that needs to be held but no longer has a parent, a lover/spouse that seeks to be embraced but endures without their beloved or any other, a parent who no longer can hold their child, are but a few examples of those who need to turn this need to the very source of Love, and receive the incredible peace of being held by Love itself which is unconditional. In a world of conditional love, such Love is difficult to conceive, but place your trust in it. (A myriad of Names have been given this Love - God, Allah, Yahweh, “That Which is,” etc. Reach for the essence not the name.) 5:23
  3. Hear My Plea Hold Me God and Hear My Plea, are where you can lift up all that is suffering within you. You are a vessel of Love, and you can bring your suffering to the very source of Love and be replenished. A person suffering from medical conditions that have little relief, a child that needs to be held but no longer has a parent, a lover/spouse that seeks to be embraced but endures without their beloved or any other, a parent who no longer can hold their child, are but a few examples of those who need to turn this need to the very source of Love, and receive the incredible peace of being held by Love itself which is unconditional.

  4. Encircled Even though you may not know where to find the love within you or the Source of Love; in the asking, both will find you, simply by opening your heart. And in this you can be Encirlced with comforting Love. Be Filled with this through the music. Take it in utterly and thoroughly. 6:56
  5. Rays of Hope There being encircled by Love itself comes Rays of Hope. The barrenness receives the Light of Love that shines warmth and intimacy within. 4:58
  6. Coherence Coherence - When you reach even the rays of hope that you will come through what you are suffering, you will find peace and Coherence of being. This is when suffering can lead us to those truths, in which the tensions release into greater perspective and understanding. This is also when “grieving” can take its true form of simply and utterly transforming the relationship or that lost into a new form and realization that nothing loves is ever lost, only transformed within you. 4:27
  7. Healing Waters And now, relax into and soak up the Healing Waters. What you are suffering needs and deserves tending. This music flows healing to you. 4:55
  8. New Star The final piece, New Star, celebrates and honors the radiance within you of being able to reach and tend your suffering. Remember your essence is Love, and Love is eternal. All suffering and loss is embraced and held by Love. Through this music may you feel loved and held. 4:20
