AllMusic Review by

Nature's Escape: Zen Garden pays tribute to the timeless beauty and restorative powers of a traditional Japanese Zen garden with a DVD/CD set that pairs 48 minutes worth of stunning landscapes with relaxing soundscapes. Filmed at Portland, Oregon's Portland Japanese garden, the lovely scenery is accompanied by musical meditations that incorporate field recordings of tranquil streams and birds, traditional Japanese instrumentation, and subtle keyboards, as on tracks like "Water Garden" and "Simple Affirmations." The songs on the set's CD portion are serene enough in their own right to make them a welcome soundtrack to listeners' own meditation sessions.
