Zen Rainforest Retreat
Sri Shanthi Bhavana
“Zen Rainforest Retreat” - in 2008, Sri Shanthi Bhavana (under the artist name, Shantha Sri), produced “Breath of the Rainforest” – an album that has become very popular and is to date the highest downloaded album of his collective works.
In a similar genre, Sri Shanthi Bhavana has created “Zen Rainforest Retreat”, revisiting this relaxing theme, and capturing the timeless sounds and feel of a ‘silent’ rainforest retreat, enhanced by the natural sounds of such a peaceful environment. It can be used as preparation for meditation, or to accompany meditation practice, as well as just ‘chilling-out’ and relaxing to Zen sounds.
"Zen Rainforest Retreat" captures the atmospheric sounds of the deep rainforest environment. Sri Shanthi Bhavana uses Asian musical instruments and Oriental-themed musical phrases to bring color and authentic Asian tonality to each track: Indonesian (Javanese and Balinese) Gamelan, Thai Bamboo Wind Chimes, Chinese Dizi and Thai Bamboo Flutes, Chinese Strings and Gongs, and Japanese Taiko Drums, as well as Piano and atmospheric recordings in rainforest nature, including natural birdsong, wind, rain and a thunderstorm!
Use these subtle Zen sounds and specially-created music soundscapes for quiet contemplation of Self, and one’s own place and purpose in the greater natural environment – as a personal meditation, or a quiet contemplation on nature – to focus on life within and out. Through these sounds, relax, unwind, and re-connect to nature, to find true inner purpose (Dharma), to immerse, to seek and find contentment and peace.
Each individual track is designed as an aural exploration into Mind/Body connection with the natural environment of a deep rainforest, and can be used as an aid to Zen Meditation, and in developing and manifesting inner peace, tranquillity, spiritual connection and “oneness", bringing spiritual transformation.
Please Note: It is recommended that headphones or earbuds be used when listening to this album, in order to achieve the highest sound quality and enjoy the subtle tonal fidelity of the natural environment.
9 tracks make up the “Zen Rainforest Retreat” collection – each track is 9-minutes in duration, and the total duration is 81-minutes:
