SINGING THAT CALMS & SOOTHES People & Animals:
A rare, exquisite, and deeply nurturing style of singing and vocalizing that is often described by human listeners as a blended lullaby from the Angels and Mother Earth, and was first developed by Kathy through her interactions with ill and injured animals (see link at bottom of page to read the special story). It is simultaneously transportive and grounding, bringing a deep sense of well-being, comfort, and balance.
Animals tend to respond immensely, and most seem to be in a deeper space of comfort and balance while hearing it. Some animals have been observed portraying more affection towards the human and non-human members of their family.

“Sometimes this unique vocalizing sounded and felt as though it were inspired by the angels…and other times it seemed to be a nurturing and soothing lullaby from Mother Earth herself… Every cell in my body, as well as my heart and soul seemed to respond to the inflections and melodies. It is beautifully and hauntingly reminiscent of some ancient, yet timeless language which we have forgotten in our consciousness, but which once remembered, transports us into a stream of well-being, comfort, balance and one-ness.” -- A. W. (New Orleans, LA)
“The sound of your voice is so pure and unaffected. The singing felt ancient, soothing and comforting all at once…
like a lullaby in the outback...truly exquisite, personal, and unique. Amazingly, as you started, all four Chihuahuas came from around the house and nestled on my lap, as if they could hear the tones themselves and wanted to be near me and near the sound as well. They curled up in peace. I believe it was healing for all of us!” Your music brings serenity and peace to the soul…the situation…the heart. ” -- L.H., Ohio
“Throughout my life in a role as animal mother, I have accompanied all of my four-legged babies to their transition from life due to their extreme illness or old age. I had the fortune to be in contact with Kathy just as I was preparing to have to take another, my Wheaton terrier, Buster. Kathy, through her singing and special heart for animals, helped me make the days surrounding his passing so much more meaningful, unhurried and graceful, for him and for me. I have a new understanding of how to treat this process and how to give the four-legged babies the respect and gentility they need. It is comforting to know that the love and the Spirit between us never dies." -- S.F., Oklahoma
“The first time that Choro (canine companion) heard the singing on the CD you made for us, she got up and walked over to the player, tilting her head. No barking, just an inquisitive look, then settled back down on her cushion. She doesn't really like riding in the car and usually sits for a bit before deciding that it is OK. But when I played your singing for her in the car, she just lied down and closed her eyes (quite unusual unless she is really tired)! -- Mary and Choro (Japan)
