In the Presence of Nature is an incomparable journey through America’s most pristine environments, its national parks and preserves. They include the dune-covered beaches of Cape Cod, the mystical swamps of the Everglades, the swirling clouds and sunlit forests of the Adirondacks, the sparkling lakes and clear mountain streams of Yosemite National Park, the amazing geysers of Yellowstone National Park, and the majestic river valleys of the Grand Canyon. This beautiful journey is matched by one of the world’s most inspiring musicians, Hilary Stagg. The soundtrack Dream Spiral is considered his most critically acclaimed work. The visuals coupled with the music enhance a meditative state of relaxation. Stagg, known for inventing the amplified harp, was prolific in creating a sound renowned for its healing qualities. His music is tranquil, comforting, and soothing. Available in DVD format only from Lobitos Creek Ranch. More info: www.lightyear.com. —Suzie Lynde
