New Meditation Album Concept by Morning Gloryville Founder with music by Grammy Nominated Producer
Updated: Dec 28, 2021
INVIGORATING MEDITATIONS FOR THE NOW AGE.
LAUGH, PLAY, CHILL LIKE NEVER BEFORE.
Forget what you thought you knew about meditation music; there’s no whale song or poetic lullabies here. Moyo Motivations is a brand new 7-track album that presents an immersive, invigorating approach to meditation that you won’t find anywhere else.
The album came into being through months of long-distance collaboration between two artists at the forefront of experimental events and contemporary music. Spiritual multi-hyphenate Mystic Moyo is not only a shaman, modern mystic and witch, but also the founder of Morning Gloryville, the global early morning dance movement and Alev Lenz is a Grammy-award nominated producer, singer-songwriter and composer.
Providing direct access to Mystic Moyo’s new-age healing from the comfort of home, each track features Mystic Moyo’s soul-examining spoken word meditations set against a bespoke and moving musical underscore composed by Alev Lenz. The result is an immersive series of transformational meditation aids, each designed to invigorate, rejuvenate and regenerate the mind, body and spirit.
A SONIC VACCINE
From busy parents to city workers, wellbeing converts to meditation novices, the album is for anyone looking for a remedy to the destructive culture felt in the wake of the pandemic. Designed with the time-poor in mind, each track acts as a micro-meditation – an instant healing energy shot – lasting no longer than six minutes each.
Each meditation is also aligned to one of the 7 planets and focuses on a specific theme, spanning topics such as motherhood, sexuality, stagnation and burnout. Think of them as quick-fire pep talks created not only to overcome specific challenges, but to also inspire curiosity and spark self-examination. A vital accompaniment to support meditation, relaxation, healing and inner peace; play a single track for a quick pick-me-up, or listen to them all as a cohesive healing experience.
