Ann Mortifee’s music has been a part of my ceremonies of healing.  My introduction to her music was “Serenade at the Doorway”, which musically illuminates the journey of dying.  Written for terminally ill people and their families, she powerfully and beautifully illustrates the process.  Listen to “This is a Healing Journey” and “Anger is a Fever”.  You will be changed.  Her newest book and CD, In Love with the Mystery, serendipitously arrived in my mailbox last week just in time for reading with a severely depressed friend.  Check out her website at annmortifee.com.
