Body relaxation with Hammered Dulcimer

from Jon Seskevich:

So very pleased to announce the release of a new CD! My voice is recorded with the relaxing, soothing, fun sound of the Hammered Dulcimer with Helen Wolfson.

Spontaneously collborating one afternoon in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, we did a guided relaxation with a patient and her mom that yielded fantasic feedback and encouragement to make a recording. Here it is. Helen playing her hammered dulcimer and I speak from a place of deep heart and meditation. We have weaved together voice and music, that relaxes, the body, and calms the mind.

Here is a link on CD Baby so you can sample it and download the over 30 minute recording for just $1.99!

CD Baby hasn’t yet downloaded our artwork yet on the site yet!

Greetings and Namaste,
Ram Dass Satsang Gathering in Durham
Saturday Oct. 14th 2pm-4:30pm
1017 Iredell St. Durham, NC 27705.

Our intention is to create a space for people to gather and share their curiosity of life under the umbrella of the teachings of Ram Dass and the unconditional love of Neem Karoli Baba.

We’ll introduce ourselves, chant together, listen/watch a talk from Ram Dass, watch a director’s cut from Ram Dass’ Fierce Grace movie, discussion, and meditate. This is our 6th Meetup in this series. It’s wonderful to get together with a focus on this wonderful teacher and his teachings of Loving Awareness. Please consider to join us!

Everyone is welcome, whether you have been with Ram Dass since the sixties or just heard about him in an internet search. Here is his website.

The Bright Hour
Received a text from a friend reading a book and saw me mentioned as “Nurse Jon” and “Relaxation Jon.” What a big surprise for us both! This book is powerful, like one of Stephen Levine, or Elisabeth Kubler-Ross’ Living and Dying workshops. I read it on plane flight and trains in India! Right after she finishes about our interaction and an outcome of her practice, recovery from an anxiety, panic attack, she shares her relative, Ralph Waldo Emerson’s Bright Hour story. On Facebook recently: Working at Duke put this picture and told about Nina’s treatment at the Cancer Center, and my teaching her a form of meditation that she used and gained repeated benefits over the last year of her life. LINK to the Facebook story.


Here’s where you can find Nina Riggs’ story: At Amazon
