Return Home: The Echoes Resound--Original Music for Solo Piano by Ann Ruane

17 original piano compositions offering therapy for your soul.

"Return Home: The Echoes Resound" was inspired by the true source of this music. What started out as little sketches scribbled in a manuscript book eventually blossomed into the pieces contained in this collection. The motifs, harmonies, and styles flowed right out of my pencil onto paper. There was a hidden treasure within me, waiting for me to return home to it.

Each piece in this collection portrays a facet of the return home...to your heart...to your roots...to your truth. Allow them to live differently within you each time you play or listen to them. Be Flexible. Be curious. Be with the pieces in a way that reflects where you are and how you feel in the moment. Let the music speak to you in a way that resonates with what you need to hear.

As you play or listen to the music, I invite you to return home within yourself. Allow your own echoes to vibrate and resound within you, opening you to your own treasure. Feel beyond what you play or hear and simply be.

The poems and prayers that make up the lyrics or mood of the pieces are from "Fall in Love with the Whispers of Your Heart, Book 1".

What people are saying about "Fall in Love"

 

"Everyone carries inside of them, a deep and shadowy fear of the unknown. A fear which, over time, becomes a crackling noise weaving itself through our building inner narrative. This fear isn’t necessarily that we’re disquieted by the thought of being left behind or potentially shut out by what we struggle to perceive. Rather, we dread the uncertainty of being able to withstand the new knowledge which comes to us if we decide to open our heart and minds to that which was previously felt as dark and dauntingly mysterious. We imagine our heart buckling under the weight, or that our soul might wither away. There comes a time when we must ask, what truly longs to be expressed within the murmurings of each deep-seated fear and the traces of sheer avoidance?

Ann Ruane takes us through the dense forest of the unknown and onto an illuminating path of personal healing and intuitive recognition in her beautifully crafted book, Fall in Love with the Whispers of Your Heart. Each chapter will lead you through the work of revelation and transformation, ultimately translating the divine messages that have been swirling in the mists of your heart’s telling whispers. Once opened, the pages of this book will become a hand to hold onto, a friend to confide in, a teacher to come back to, and a cherished guide to depend on."

Susan FrybortSusan Frybort, Author of Open Passages, Doors and Windows to the Soul and Hope is a Traveler, a collection of poems

I am not a sentimental person. I never thought a self help book could do much for anyone. Then I received a copy of Fall in love with the whispers of your heart and my whole belief system was demolished in one chapter. It was like this book was sent to me at the exact moment I needed it, when I didn’t know I needed it.

I really felt connected to what Ann was saying and how she laid out the book was genius. It was so simply done but with such gravitas and compassion that I couldn’t help reading the whole thing twice. I answered all the questions she asked and found out things about myself I didn’t even know. I made notes and felt a strangely dignified calm wash over when I repeated the mantras to myself. I have post-it notes sticking out from it everywhere and I am torn between hoarding my copy to myself and the need to share it with people so they can feel the way I do today.

I can’t recommend this book enough! I found it insightful and written from a soul so beautiful you can’t help but trust this book to set you on a path you didn’t know you were searching for.

Thank you so much for all the work you do Ann and I hope more books come from you in the near future.

The Title Is Very Fitting After Reading the Book.
1. I enjoyed the book and was not able to put it down.
2. The change in the fonts was helpful and allowed you to zero in on various aspects of the book.
3. The mantra's will be used in my daily self-meditation.
4. I will be reading a second time to help formulate some self-improvements.

"Helping Others See Who They Really are with Ann Ruane" on the Jeffrey Eisen Podcast

Professional pianist, reiki master and author Ann Ruane understands the challenges of healing from a life-altering event. After her divorce in 2006, she found solace in her music and journaling, but after receiving a reiki treatment during a massage, Ruane found energy work transformational. The experience sent her on a spiritual path and eventually led her to write Fall in Love with the Whispers of Your Heart, released in October through Book Baby publishing. Page after page, Ruane offers a series of thought-provoking reflections on aspects of psychological and spiritual life.
