Dr. James Pilc, a former OB/GYN who closed his practice last year to become a meditation guide, has released his first CD, “Guided Meditation: A Path to Peace.”
The CD shares the philosophies of Buddhist meditation, contemplative prayer and deep relaxation.
The 74-minute spoken word CD includes an introduction to meditation, relaxation exercises and both an extended and a time-saving 12-minute guided meditation. The original music was created in Western New York.
The CD was recorded, mixed and mastered by Michael Rorick at Rock Central Music and includes binaural tones which were added to enhance relaxation, creativity and the meditative experience.
“Through meditation, we all move through silence, through stillness and create our center of peace,” Pilc said in a news release announcing the CD's debut. “Everyone can meditate. My goal is to help everyone find this space of peace.”
There will be a series of CD release events across WNY this holiday season, including at 7 p.m. today at the Roycroft Inn in East Aurora and Dec. 6 at New World Gifts in Williamsville.
The CDs are available at Serendipity Salon and New World Gifts in Williamsville, Vidler's in East Aurora and online at jamespilcmd.com.
