Meditation CD Showcases Southwest Florida Healers and Spiritual Teachers

When Howard Wulkan, music producer and owner of Farmadelica Sound, in Bokeelia, and his wife Lainie Sevante’ Wulkan, president of the Holistic Chamber of Commerce of Southwest Florida, decided to create a regional collaboration project designed to inspire a united effort within Southwest Florida’s enlightened community through a recorded collection of meditations, the concept received an overwhelming positive response. “We wanted to unite local healers and spiritual teachers so that they could support one another’s wisdom and insights for well-being while simultaneously providing a collection of their meditations that could ultimately benefit everyone,” says Howard.

“This is an exciting time to produce records in this genre. With the world in such a state of flux, stress and uncertainty, thousands of individuals are searching for ways to calm their nerves, reduce anxiety and find solutions to coping and thriving. Meditation continuously proves to be one of the remedies for many people seeking change. For our first collection focused on meditation, we’ve gathered a wonderful ensemble of Southwest Florida’s healers and spiritual teachers,” says Lainie, creator of Gulf Coast Meditations.

Howard advises that there is already a lot of interest in the Gulf Coast Meditations series. “The second collection will focus on the chakras, and the third one on abundance. The fourth is a children’s meditation CD. I know for certain that guided meditations are very popular, because an abundance meditation that I recorded for a woman in New Mexico has been streamed 1.4 million times via Spotify. It’s all about quality content, and there’s plenty of this on the debut CD,” he says.  

The August debut of Gulf Coast Meditations, a 13-track collection of guided meditations, includes Dolores J. Gozzi, owner of Wisdom of the Sacred, Douglas Rarden and Marshall Wayne Davidson, of Nature Spirit Drums, Deb Martin, Lotus Blossom Clinic co-owner, Laurie Kopercinkski-Barraco, owner of The Mystical Moon, and Kandy Love, of Love Works, an author and yoga teacher, Tina Brunetti Smith, reiki healer and owner of Metta 039, Tanya Crossman, with Island Yoga Health & Wellness, Joanna Solerno, of Sacred Listening, Sacred Touch, Kristin Gleesin, MS, intuitive and mindfulness mentor, Gloria Reilly, Kundalini yoga instructor with Giran Kirin Yoga, Denise Flood, wellness educator with Tapping World Healing, Beverly Arnold Oberline, with Wolf Spirit Energy, and Lainie Sevante’ Wulkin, with In2uitive Wisdom, Farmadelica Sound’s newest Spiritual Record Division.

“There is an overload of crazy things going on in world. The majority of people that I talk with express their discomfort with the uncertainty, divisiveness and lack of civility, and are happy to create a conscious community for the intention of sharing good vibrations with everyone. Although no one person can change whole world, we each have the opportunity to impact our own circle of influence, which has a rippling effect. Circles overlap, and the collective sharing of thoughts and ideas spreads positivity,” advises Howard.

Gulf Coast Meditations will premier in outlets such as Amazon, Spotify, Pandora, YouTube and Apple Music. CDs will also be available at locally frequented spiritual outlets, yoga studios, wellness centers, spas and more.

Individuals interested in participating in the second release in the series can call 239-785-0809. Farmadelica Sound, LLC, is located at 14900 Stringfellow Rd., in Bokeelia. For more information, email
