Thank You to those who have contributed to PATIENT GIFT BOXES. Thanks to your generosity we were able to purchase a small quantity of MP3 players and will share them with hospice and cancer centers after the COVID19 crisis is over.
In the meantime, here's a link where you can enjoy the music: https://amycamie.bandcamp.com/album/loves-gentle-embrace
With Loving Gratitude,

We're raising money to purchase and donate PATIENT GIFT BOXES to area hospices and cancer centers.
Each gift box contains an MP3 player preloaded with 90 minutes of therapeutic solo harp music. These inspired melodies gently transport the listener into a state of deep relaxation, comfort, and peace. Also included are comfortable headphones, wall charger, lanyard, and instruction card.
As someone who has played harp in chemotherapy infusion units, walked 2 journeys with breast cancer, and listened to my music every day during treatment, I know how important music can be for the healing process. I've also played bedside for patients on hospice care and have seen the peace and comfort therapeutic music brings to those in transition.
Going through cancer treatments or being on hospice care can be scary, lonely, and stressful. Patients often sit in recliners or lie in bed for hours. The PATIENT GIFT BOXES will be available for patients to use during treatments or at home - that will be a decision made by each recipient.
The musical tracks used for these PATIENT GIFT BOXES were specifically selected from my previous CDs to induce a state of deep relaxation using 'non-rhythmic' form.
This means the music has open space between the notes and does not intentionally entrain the brainwaves, breathing or heart rate to a specific tempo. Patients feel supported yet free to fall into their own personal rhythm while experiencing a deeper state of relaxation, comfort, and peace. The preloaded tracks were also remastered to create a warm, loving experience:
1. "The Magic Mirror - Inspired Reflections"
2. Floating on the Breeze – Track 11 on "From the Darkness Comes the Light"
3. The Circle of Love – Track 12 on "From the Darkness Comes the Light"
4. Nurturing Rains – Track 6 on "From the Darkness Comes the Light"
5. The Light Within – Extended Single
6. Embracing the Darkness – Track 1 on "From the Darkness Comes the Light"
7. Morning Star – Track 1 on "In the Light of Love"
8. Expression 7 – Track 7 on "A Space Within"
9. Afterglow – Track 9 on "In the Light of Love"
10. Golden Awareness –Track 5 on "From the Darkness Comes the Light"
11. Reverence – Track 9 on "From the Darkness Comes the Light"
12. Expression 6 – Track 6 on "A Space Within"
13. The Love Song – Track 4 on "DREAMS – The Love Within"
For those not familiar with my music, here's a sampling of testimonials from others sharing how this music touches hearts and changes lives:
"The Magic Mirror" CD:
I have not slept this well since I was a child. Your music enabled me to achieve the serenity and bliss of a child. I felt that I was in the arms of an angel.
~ Gary G.
Let me tell you my wife and I have more than enjoyed your work. I bought her the Magic Mirror about 7 years ago when she was going through breast cancer treatment. She listened to it every night to ease her fears and sleep.
These panic attacks have happened for about 8 years, but were few and far between. Now they come every day and night in waves of physical and emotional misery . He is now feeling desperate since he can't asleep whether it's napping or night time sleep, not even if he sits in a recliner. So what can he do? Amy, the ONLY thing that helps is your music!
~ Toni G.
The Magic Mirror has been a tool for creating peace in my home. Every evening as we begin to settle down for the night the magic mirror is the transitional music that calms my children's body, mind and soul.
As soon as I put on your music two more ladies walked into the room and arranged themselves on chairs to listen. All four of these highly agitated women were immediately calmed and relaxed. I even got one of them to unclench her hands which to my knowledge I have never been able to do accomplish in the last eight months.
"The Light Within" CD:
After a few seconds, I felt myself giving in and being lulled into a quiet, meditative state… I heard myself sigh and felt tension kind of melting away. It was like a gateway, a gateway to meditation, and I thought to myself, THIS is what people need who think they CANNOT meditate. It soothed me, it lulled me. I had neither will nor reason to resist… At the end of yoga we address each other and say 'Namaste' which for me means, I acknowledge the light within you. After listening to this music, I felt like I was acknowledging the light within myself."
~ Leslie C.
"A Space Within" CD:
This music is so relaxing and yet interesting to listen too-the harp playing is exquisite and the melodies keep one engaged throughout. This is a brilliant CD to relax with, to enjoy and to feel uplifted by.
~ Judy H.
.... if you are looking for serene, relaxing music to escape the insanity of this world, you must listen to this.... you will not be disappointed.
This CD provides deep relaxation, peace and calm. You can use it to meditate by or to relax you during a stressful commute. It does indeed touch your soul in an inexplicable way.
From the Darkness Comes the Light CD:
Gorgeous, soothing music. Beautiful melodies. Peaceful, tranquility. Amy Camie knows how to play the most soothing music.
~ Kathleen K.
This takes me to a place of peace and calm, no matter how hectic my day has been. It frees my soul from worldly concerns and gives it a deeper connection to Light and Love.
In the Light of Love CD:
I've been looking for solutions to my sleepless nights with 3 kids (6 months, 2 and 5 years old). White noise and lullabies weren't helping. The night after the conference I played In the Light of Love overnight and EVERYONE slept through the night for first time in ages! I play your albums each night now. Thank you!!!!
Thank you for your support in helping to share this music with others!
