Deb is currently working on a project called Oneness Vibration, in which recordings of her sound vibrations work will be made available to people around the globe to download for free. Deb’s passion is to share transformational sounds, created with an intention of unconditional love and gratitude. She believes peace is an inside job, and by beginning to create more peaceful feelings within one self, peace will begin to manifest in your outer world. The sounds Deb shares help people relax and release, promote calmness, and enhance feelings of connecting with the infinite source of inner peace. The sounds also take you within to a place where you feel at one with all that is. Through the sounds shared through the Oneness Vibration project,Deb hopes you will find your heart opening, your consciousness expanding, any stress and tension decreasing, and your awareness growing into wholeness on all levels. By sharing these vibrational recordings with the world, we hope to help world peace manifest in the world, by each person connecting with inner peace, one by one. The Oneness Vibration website will be launched in late April or early May 2015.
Deb currently has 5 cd’s available: Crystal Bowl Meditation for Cultivating Compassion, Loving Kindness and Peace; Sounds for the Soul Mid-day Meditation Live; Gong Song: Celestial Sounds: Deb and Judy Live at Unity; and Celestial Sounds: Boundless.
