Journey To The Underworld
begin real inner work in a Celtic or Western Tradition, one
must become an initiate and travel to the Underworld or Otherworld.
On this tape, RJ Stewart offers a powerful visualization narrative
which leads the listener (and participant) to this Underworld.
He incorporates traditional contacts and symbols which resonate
deeply and awaken awareness within. The traveler to the Underworld
is transformed by the intensity of what he or she encounters.

the 80 stringed concert psaltery, which complements the underworld
narrative in mood and is perfect for meditational and ritual
may have heard this instrument before, but not the 80 stringed
concert psaltery designed by and built especially for RJ Stewart.
It is accompanied here by other instruments (such as the cittern
and flageolet) in a magical mix of traditional folk songs and

narratives by RJ Stewart, with the sixth side including an incantation
and meditational music on his 80 stringed concert psaltery.
Don't expect cozy or comfortable encounters here. The places
you travel to and contacts you meet in these tapes are both
challenging and unpredictable, testing and transforming you
in new ways each time you listen and participate. These visualizations
are included in RJ's books, Advanced

Elemental Chants and Calls on this tape are based on a sacro-magical
chant system developed by R J Stewart between 1972 and 1985.
There is no requirement to be a musician or a singer to use
these chants, they can be used without musical expertise.
Many people now use this chant system throughout the world
in their meditations, ceremonies, and for attuning physical
locations and sacred sites. The Elemental Chants spring from
an ancient musical and metaphysical tradition taught in Western
magic and spiritual arts. The roots of this system are found
in the writings of Plato, particularly The Republic.
They relate to many magical systems in the Northern hemisphere
and are described in detail in R J Stewart's books Music
and the Elemental Psyche and Music Power Harmony.
