OF THE MONTH
published in 1885, Light on the Path is a book of short aphorisms that
will challenge the reader for an entire lifetime.
This book explores the acoustics of sacred space as an avenue for
understanding. It is about music powerful enough to transform us into a
greater reality. Based on Susan's life-long experience as a singer, 27
years as a music therapist, and 10 years of journeys across the globe
researching sacred sites, this work discusses the desecration and
disharmony of our current world while demonstrating how people are
building new sacred sites with resonant qualities.
