Thanks to all of you coming to the site, listening to the samples and reading a bit about the music.

Both albums could not have happened without the artistry and skill of my good friend Robyn Traill, instrumentalist, arranger and producer. Many thanks to Robyn, his wife Carrie and their daughter Gemma for all their support, time and love for Body of Light.

I’d also like to thank the many teachers, friends and family who have encouraged and supported the development of this music. It is a huge list which includes people from India, Nepal, Tibet, China, Taiwan, Laos, Spain, Germany, France, England, Ireland, Scotland, Denmark, Italy, Netherlands, Switzerland, Austria, Poland, Czech Republic, Chile, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Mexico, the United States and last but not least, Shambhala.

Finally, I would like to thank my mother for bringing me into the world, for providing the means to study and meditate for many years, and for spending a lot of time listening to the radio with me when I was young; and my father for occasionally provoking me to think about profound things, for having a good sense of humor, and for bringing me to listen to Scottish pipers and pow-wows when I was a boy.

May all beings realize peace and great joy quickly in this life.
