NYR 2023 Music

"Music is the bridge to heaven," said Edgar Cayce, and Rev Mario told us often that "The Centre was born in music."

The music we play before and after a New Year Reading is essential to creating the bridge to Spirit and for expressing our gratitude after the Reading.

Before the Reading
