Claudia van Buren & Brian Lee
This is much more than an album for relaxation. It is a journey in sound from conception to birth. And like all journeys, there are moments of challenge. Listeners (both male and female) have said that this album has led them to a profound inner experience, and enabled them to access a space of deep healing which in some cases has helped them to let go of a painful past and make major changes in their lives.

This album is particularly designed for:
Those who wish to have children but have not yet found the right partner/emotional situation to bring a child into the world.
Those who have successfully tried IVF or another alternative method to become pregnant
Those who have tried IVF and have not yet been successful
Those who are pregnant in the 1st, 2nd or 3rd trimester
Those who have no desire to become pregnant
Those who are planning to adopt a child
Others may find it helpful in unlocking and unblocking the pain of their own difficult birth.
Once we’d finished the album we decided to make it available to selected individuals (again both women and men) asking them to listen and to keep a diary of their experiences over a period of thirty days. Among other things, people kept notes of their dreams and their emotional state. You can read some of their comments in the review section.
The most succinct response: “Very powerful indeed!”
Finally, here are Gabriel’s words:
I am Gabriel
This is my sacred song
A gift to all creators
A gift to mankind
I have walked within your heart throughout time
I have brought you the joy of expectancy
And have announced all birth
and given form to all life
I am Gabriel
This is my song
