|We are a Post-Quantum expression of the ancient
Vedic Kundalini traditions of Bhakti Devotional Yoga of the Heart, and "ANAHATA-NAD", In-The-Moment Spontaneoulsy Self-Arising
Sound that awakens the Blue Flame Energy in the Body-Mind-Spirit Continuum. This Energy is Alchemically Transmuted to higher
and subtler awakenings of the Organic and Esoteric systems in the Body, and moved up the Spine, (the AXIS MUNDI or WORLD POLE),
until it eventually reaches the "Third Eye" - the Pineal Gland - in the center of the forehead, and releases potent chemical
substances known to science as Neural Melatonin, and to Sacred Technologies as AMRITA or SOMA. This Photovaultaic "Nectar"
increases your body's photosensitivety and light absorbtion, ultimately leading to the capacity to be 'LIT FROM WITHIN". The
primal yet richly complex Resonant Sonic Field of our Music emulates the acoustics of ancient Vedic Cave Rituals in India,
and embraces all of the participants in a Nested-Harmonic Pressure "Hug" that triggers embedded ecstatic vibration at a cellular
level, which we call THE COHERANT SQUEEZE. The result is shared, Ecstatic Quantum Field Transformation for the celebrants.

MYSTERY SCHOOL & ETERNAL TRANCE DANCE
"We have been thoroughly enjoying your new CD, moving
and swaying to its' infectious insistence to drop ordinary everyday thinking". Jane Fetisoff, Certified Massage Therapist
"AXIS MUNDI is a novel experiential phenomenon
which presents us with a unique evolutionary opportunity: to participate in a genuinely intimate, bonded collective state
that integrates Self and Other in a field which is simultaneously provocative and safe, free and expressive, personal and
shared." Cheryl Haley, Holistic Therapist
"MUSIC FOR MEDITATION The music of AXIS MUNDI
is dynamic and fast, driven by ever-accelerating rhythm, full of vibratory didgeridoo and vocal effects, chanted kirtans,
and pulsing that goes beyond the limits of dance. It is not music in the general sense - it's more of a Life Meditation; an
Energetic Field of Experience, Self Transformation, and Spontaneous Dance. This is a technique of Catharsis in which, during
ecstatic dance, the person throws off layers of unnecessary heaviness, and by doing so frees himself and his consciousness
from extra baggage. This leads to the freeing of emotions and clearing of the mind." Andrew Pechkarou, Radio Belarus &
New Age Music 'zine, Republic of Belarus.
"Today I love rediscovering a part of myself
that I was mourning...I really thought the Dancer in me was gone because I have not felt moved by much music lately. But last
night, I went to see the band AXIS MUNDI, and I couldn't NOT dance, the energy was so amazing. Hearing & being moved by
the singer's mudras, seeing other people in the audience feeling the same way too, I found out that my Body is still confident
with ITSELF, even if I'm not. When the set was over, I was in a warm; fluid space, fully aware of my body and my breathing."
Bella Crow, attending our performance at The Black Box, Oakland, CA - Dec.4th 2001.
"I could tell you all had something BIG brewing
up there on stage. When you started it was instantly apparent that this would not be your average jam session. I thought that
is was perfect how it all came together - the extended period of Chanting without drumming, then the terrific Drums coming
in and the hypnotic Dancer with Finger Cymbols chiming...it was all very intoxicating and mesmerizing. Watching the dancer
and hearing those sounds...I wasn't sure what was happening to me, but I knew it was SOMETHING, singular and overwhelming.
I have a hip-hop band, and my crowd of urban youth are tired of this commodified and prepackaged reality we exist in, and
it's artificial and vacant forms of expression. If I can be responsible for creating in THEM what you caused to occur in ME,
then I will be able to fulfill a life-long desire; to make music that has a long lasting and Life Transforming effect on the
audience, as yours does." Kyva, Hip Hop Band -

*"I so very much enjoyed
your music. Thank you for providing such pleasure to the community. Years
of trance dancing has molded my
movements into a unique form. The sacred spiral and flow are what
I move within. You create a sweet, magical vibe. Your music and the spirit of your souls is a wonderful
energy to dance to."
Blake, Owner, Area 101
first time I saw Axis Mundi in Concert, to my surprise, the music and sacred space
that was established helped me really rediscover
parts of myself. To this day, I go knowing I am going to get
in the music and within myself and dance for hours".
Ashton, Staff Favorite Picks for PantheaCon Conference 2002
*"I had a dream about Axis Mundi a couple of nights ago. It was great, the music reverberated
everything. It's one of those sounds that even when awake, I can hear
it sometimes. "
Taylor, Arborvitae Grove
all put on amazing events. Keep up all the
wonderful work you do - it's so important in these times. I was struck
by the amazing vibrancy of your members that I spoke to afterwards -- evidence
for me of an active and alive connection to your Source and the inspiration for such transcendent music-- which in turn
inspired those present. How wonderful
of a celebration it was -- it resonates even now. I know the work we collectively did that night carried far beyond
the walls of St. Gregory's."
*"My hands-down favorite on the local music scene is Axis Mundi. Every time I get in the room with this band I am initiated into the primal core of this mystery
called "being human". More than music, Axis Mundi is a journey.
Rooted in Vedic cathartic chanting, this music is totally improvised, deliriously
rhythmic and perfectly sculpted around the spontaneous, self-arising sounds that emerge
Geralyn Gendreau, Yoga Teacher
& RUMI Initiate
*"Just wanted to thank you very much for offering such a thoughtful and powerful space for the community.
We all truly felt fortunate to have a place to send intention for peace
and greater consciousness into the world. And your music is just
*"What a blessing and what a treat. I've
the percolations of that time. Thanks
and blessings to you
all for all that you do...it's beautiful,
meaningful and rich."
you so much for a most transcendant experience last Saturday night for the Harmonic Concordance. Your music is ecstatic, your
light show and imagery beyond exquisite. So inspiring! I loved
the whole organic flow of everything, the circus performers, the gongs, the brief and powerful meditation inductions. I was particularly struck by Sondra's words 'The Divine Manifestation is up
to us!' It couldn't be said more poignantly, pointing us to our responsibility.
Thank you, thank you for creating so much beauty and transporting sound!"
