Into the Dreamtime Review

by Carol Wright

This tape by Oceanic Tantra teacher Kutira Decosterd offers an extended meditation using soft vocal chants, drones of digeridoo, a steady heartbeat drum, and the songs of the whales. The soothing sonic textures pulse with a breathing rhythm and it is easy to imagine yourself swimming with the great whales. On side two, Kutira leads a guided meditation describing a shamanic voyage into dolphin dreamtime. Kutira's Swiss-accented voice (slightly echoed), sensual deep breathing sounds, Raphael's magically seductive background music, and Sophia's siren vocals will make this guided meditation a memorable and sensual experience. Dolphins chirp their approval as they pull you through imaginary oceans. As you plunge together deeper and deeper, a resonant bass digeridoo note seems to pull you to the bottom of the ocean to a sacred temple, the gates to "the innermost core of your being." I won't give away any more of the vivid images. Because of the sensual nature of the music and the strong vibrations of the digeridoo, this guided imagery tape may involve your whole body and be a very powerful transformative experience that ends in a sonic bath of redemption and a bonus tune about the dolphins. A similar (and more sexual) guided imagery tape by Kutira is Tantric Wave: A Guided Sensuous Ritual; the musical version is Tantric Wave.
