In October of 2005, Copperwoman gathered with a group of Midwives at Esalen on the central California coast and sang thoughout the weekend. She taught her original songs and shared well-known circlesongs. On the Sunday of that weekend they went to a studio in Big Sur and with 19 women singing, recorded 17 Ritual Music Songs to produce the CD, Blessingway Songs. These songs are easy to learn and are meant to be shared. Feel the lyrics and beautiful voices uplift and encourage you in your daily life and meet the challenges you face. 'Thank you so much for the speedy expediting of your wonderful Blessingway CD - we will be using it this weekend at a joint motherblessing ceremony here in East Cork, Ireland. I have a passion for women's circles and started one here in Ireland 3 1/2 years ago, a month later we held perhaps the first Mother Blessing ceremony Ireland has seen. We have had many, many of them now and your CD will be a wonderful addition to our celebrations. Thank you for your wonderful women's work- the strength and beauty of the lyrics, melodies and voices are so empowering to listen to. Best wishes, Lucy Pearce, Freelance writer and contributing editor, JUNO magazine. 'WOW! WOW! WOW! Beautiful! I just received my copy and played it this morning in my big empty nest! Well done!

I want to order more and would like them for Mother's Day gifts.' Blessings, Rilyn 'WOW! WOW! WOW! Beautiful! I just received my copy and played it this morning in my big empty nest! Well done!
