By using poetry with a landscape of sounds, vocals, and instruments (which include guitars, mandolin, synthesizers, percussion, Tibetan bowls, and tuning forks) this recording helps you to experience the symbols and meanings of the Cups suit of the tarot deck in an artistic and meditative way. Fourteen original poems and songs inspired by studies in expressive arts therapy and ancient wisdom.
"Cups of the Heart is no less than a magical journey to the world of the senses-and a means to experience and understand the Tarot. Here is a 45 minute album of 14 songs that transports you on a learning experience, and a means to find peace. There is so much to say about Cups of the Heart. First there is the poetry. Cups of the Heart brings sounds and instrumentation to the voyage. But what is really outstanding is the crystal-like voice that this reviewer could listen to all day long on the way to healing, love and compassion." - Richard Fuller, Metaphysical Reviews
