Musical Soul Portraits
A Musical Soul Portrait is Music for your Soul, inspired by your Higher Self. Spontaneously composed and recorded by Richard Shulman – composer, pianist, synthesist, recording artist.
Remember and commune with the qualities of your soul through your own personalized music.
Feel and recognize your own Spiritual Connection and Essence.
An Individual Musical Soul Portrait session will give you music which follows the path of your own Divine connection. Each one hour session includes a recorded musical journey which can awaken memories and visions, activate your own soul mission and give you the feeling and recognition of “Coming Home”.
Your CD will be approximately 1/2 hour long and can be used for meditation, healing, relaxation and inner exploration. It is always inspiring, sometimes surprising, and often healing.
This music can help you align to your soul’s purpose, feel the sweetness of life, and remember the love, wisdom, power, peace and beauty that live within. At the beginning of each session an intent can be set for spiritual growth and for support through the music for any issue for the Highest Good.
Testimonial about Musical Soul Portraits
– Lori France, Arden, NC
A Group Musical Soul Portrait expresses the highest vision of the group through music. It is an interactive process which begins with a spontaneously composed keyboard piece intended for the highest good of all present and all we are connected with, and is followed by a check-in with participants for further musical and meditational experiences visioning together.
During the check-in, issues are raised for the group energy to work with, and intentions for healing/solutions/visions are then set and explored through additional group musical meditations. This process holds a unified consciousness which brings participants into a cooperative, inspired and enthusiastic mind set for dreams coming true.
In person sessions:
