ambient music with Celtic stylings.
Featuring Celtic multi-instrumentalist Chris Conway and top
Reiki composer Llewellyn and the ethereal voice of special guest Juliana
a Celtic Reiki album was suggested it seemed like a perfect
plan to mix Llewellyn Reiki music experience with CCs Celtic
music experience. The two had worked together on CCs album
Ayurveda album, which Llewellyn produced, and Llewellyn's
Mysts of Avalon and Llewellyn & Juliana's Earth Angel
Consulting with Celtic reiki practitioner Bev Lewis - who
wrote the line notes to the album - it was decided to divide
the album into 4 quarters, reflecting the elements. Llewellyn
suggested some broad instrumentation that would accompany
each element and CC laid the main plan of the music down.
Llewellyn & Juliana added their music and subtle ambiences

Celtic Reiki is a beautiful style of Reiki which uses vibrations
from the Earth and certain types of trees and plants to
create energies ideal for healing.
1. Magical Earth - EARTH
The magical feel of this track is imparted immediately by
the combination of zither, sounding like a Celtic harp,
and kalimba (thumb piano). Irish tim whistles and Juliana's
vocals also make for a magical feel.
Dance of the Flame - FIRE
The fire is represented by the low drone of the bass keys
of the piano and the Irish low whistle. Llewellyn added
some distant thunderstorm sounds and again Chris's and Juliana's
gentle voices blend together beautifully, dancing around
3. Sea of Dreams - WATER
A swirling ocean of sounds as filtered theremin and voices
lay the seabed over which Irish tin whistle floats. A really
4. The Wind of Enlightenment - AIR
Bamboo flute floats over wind ambiences before being joined
by a rippling acoustic 9 string guitar and Llewellyn's delicate
piano on this piece which builds to a really emotional and

Reiki, the practice of balancing chi energy by the laying of hands and the power of touch, is a balm for the soul that helps one to heal and feel rejuvenated. 'Celtic Reiki' is a variation on core Reiki practice that taps into the energies and vibrations of trees, plants and the earth itself, flowing upwards from the root chakra rather than downwards from the crown.
CELTI REIKI, from composers/multi-instrumentalists Llewellyn and Chris Conway, was composed to provide a serene environment that is conducive towards Celtic-themed energy work.
The music is soft and sublime, with a layer of fluid synthesizer atmosphere that envelops you early on and remains in place throughout the album. Conway adds light rhythm, bamboo flute, tin whistle, zither and other instruments that straddle the line between Asian and Celtic influences. Topping things off is the sweet wordless vocals of Juliana, which provide the music with another element of enchantment.
