THE 5 MINUTE HOUR 2

This second installment of the 5 Minute Hour series was also composed specifically for the person with little time to relax. (See description above.) The first CD met with a very positive response and a second in the series was requested. My inspiration for the compositions includes the individuals that have received private intuitive music sessions. Through the years, several common issues were addressed in these sessions. This music can be effectively used to assist listeners with them: from the reduction of stress, to pain relief, the stress of living with serious illness, and healing of the heart. I've also been deeply moved by their courage and resilience. May these compositions serve to honor and celebrate these inspirational individuals.

CD REVIEWS

ONE HEART

“I was first introduced to "One Heart” while driving in horrendous bumper to bumper commuter traffic on the 405 North at rush hour. That panicky tightness across my chest disappeared as soon as I pressed "play". Velvety-soft flowing flute sounds sinuously floated around my body and loosened the tightly wound knots that had been forming.”

I highly recommend this CD to anyone wishing to have Maria's music lovingly caress their hustled, bustled, havoc-wreaked souls. Maria is a true jewel and artist that you owe your soul to hear. She’ll become a habit.” –Jaye Allison
VISION MAGAZINE

"We've received more orders for Maria Kostelas' One Heart CD than another other CD we've used for our 'on hold' music. In fact, many customers request to be put on hold again so they can hear it one more time! "
KATHY SAYLER, DEVORSS & COMPANY DISTRIBUTION
DIRECTOR OF MARKETING


“The best relaxation music I’ve ever heard.”
IRENE ESTORES, M.D.

“As a professional called to respond to national traumatic events including 9-11, I use Maria’s music with my clients to help them process the traumatic events they have experienced. I’ve witnessed them transform from a fearful anxious state to one of total relaxation within the firs t minute of hearing her music. These dramatic results include the release of: fear, anxiety and depression. I recommend this CD for helping individuals directly or indirectly affected by trauma.”
JANET ANILINE, PH.D. NATIONAL TRAUMA EXPERT

“My 9 and 12-year old were taunting and teasing eachother. I put on the One Heart CD and in minutes they stopped. Later at dinner as the music continued my daughter said, “this music makes me so happy.”
MOTHER OF TWO

“One Heart, as Maria puts it, creates a “safe vessel” through which you can release your emotions. But it does more than that, it restores your sense of hope, and uplifts and revitalizes you. As you listen to Maria’s music on the One Heart CD, your negative emotions are released. And it doesn’t take hours of listening to make that happen. After just a few minutes of listening to Maria’s music, you’ll begin to feel better.”

“…it’s like opening the spigot on that rain barrel of emotions, and releasing them a little at a time in a safe way. That way you can keep your emotions at a manageable level. Plus, I always find that her music leaves me uplifted and rejuventated.”
DR SUSAN LARK, THE “LARK LETTER”

"...Her bro-in-law had been in a coma for 3 weeks. It (One Heart) pulled him out of the coma the first day they played it. Now the doctor has asked to borrow the CD to play it for other patients."
DARLENE SANO

"I recently bought the CD One Heart. I drove with it for almost 2 hours and found myself mellow yet freely focused on my driving. I arrived refreshed and lighter. I plan on keeping it on hand for all my longer trips as the awareness of the road was enhanced."
CAROLE ROSS

"This morning while driving on the 405 from Orange County to the Los Angeles Airport I played your CD One Heart. It was if the music created a fluid momentum within me, instead of the sudden assault of stop and go traffic, and it extended to the freeway around me. It was peaceful and healing and felt like a journey instead of a long drive. Thank you Maria."
TERRY MARTIN

"Very relaxing and beautiful music. I own several flute CD's and really like this one. Will purchase others in the future."
SHIRLEY BOBO

"Peaceful, relaxing, refreshing...My purpose in buying this was to have something to unwind to and relax. It does just that - very peaceful and beautiful. Easy to get lost in or use to focus and think, whatever your intentions. The flutes are truly remarkable."
LAURIE

"This music is so beautiful! I was surprised how much I liked this CD the first time I played it. The music is truly beautiful and so relaxing and peaceful. I listen to it every night as I am falling asleep.
I was surprised how much I liked this CD the first time I played it."
CANDACE

"The songs are just wonderful on this CD, and I find myself listening to it again and again. Its become a daily nighttime ritual when retiring for a very relaxing way to wind down."

ANICIENT VOICES FROM WITHIN

“As I listened to the soothing music of “Ancient Voices from Within”, I found myself in a completely relaxed state, allowing my consciousness to be encompassed inthe hauntingly beautiful musi from ages past. Before I knew it I was completely engulfed by the music. My mind, heart and spirit were soaring with the energy of these amazing flutes that harken a time long forgotten. Listeners say this CD helps them reach a meditative state and many listen every night as they drift into the dreamworld.”
www.shirleymaclaine.com

“I love your "Ancient Voices from Within CD so much I'm going to feature it on the front page of CD Baby. We're really picky about what goes on the front page. We get about 75 new albums a day coming in here now, (about 30,000 total), and yours is one of the best I've ever heard.”
TARMARA TURNER, MUSIC EDITOR, CD BABY

“Honoring both North and South American native cultures and music, Maria Kostelas brings us a truly inspired and spiritually cleansing album of haunting, deeply penetrating flute music mixed with sounds of nature. You'll be transported to the banks of a bubbling brook, gazing out at the towering mountains of Peru or the sacred Black HIlls of the Northern United States. Each of these tracks wordlessly and gracefully embraces many traditions with a spirit of honor, respect and celebration, making this album ideal for relaxation, meditation, or inward work.”
CD BABY, IN-HOUSE REVIEW

*8 IN THE TOP 10 PICK: Best Spa Music
AOL SPA GUIDE

“Recommended for minimizing stress… meant to relax listeners in a matter of minutes.”
LOS ANGELES TIMES

“With a command of one hundred flutes, Kostelas’ delicacy and warmth augment the spiritual territory she explores in these arrangements.”
HEALING LIFESTYLES AND SPAS MAGAZINE

“For about three years I have felt that I've been looking for music that touches me deeply in a profound way. My old music wasn't quite doing it for me anymore in quite the same way. I knew this was my new healing music.

I've used Ancient Voices Within for a MAP session (self-guided healing working with divas, nature energies, etc.). It made the session truly profound. When I returned from a deep healing state, I felt more expanded and healthy. I looked in the mirror and the dark circles under my eyes were gone--I looked healthier.
LISA TENER, AUTHOR/WRITING COACH, SAUNDERSTOWN, RI

A TIME FOR PEACE

Maria Kostelas’ A Time for Peace will release the tension of the day and set your spirits free of burden and worry. At least it did for me. A Time for Peace invites the listener into a relaxing world of calm. Beautiful flute melodies transcend the complexities of life and bring gently harmony and peace within. Feelings of tranquility and well-being are awakened as you are embraced by the warmth of healing flute sounds, from Native American to South American, Asian to Classical. Time seems to slow as your mind, body and spirit are immersed into a world of peace.
www.shirleymaclaine.com

“I admire her work and am delighted to recommend A Time fo Peace. I believe that anyone who listens to this CD will be transcended by its uplifting, inspirational, and rejuvenating sound.”
DR. SUSAN LARK, THE LARK LETTER


MOTHER’S MELODY: ONE HEART

“…I especially recommend the soothing flute music of Maria Kostelas. Maria’s Mother’s Melody/One Heart CD is a favorite of neonatal wards; nurses have found that this CD calms newborns instantly, and it reduces stress for the nurses too! Maria suggests that moms-to-be listen to the music before their babies are born, as well. “
CHRISTIANE NORTHRUP, M.D.

"Maria Kostelas' CD 'Mothers Melody' will become one of your child's (and your) favorites! Unlike most clanging children's music, Maria's flutes have the power to quickly soothe and settle little ones into a feeling of safety and calm."
HARVEY KARP, M.D. AUTHOR

"A powerfully soothing, healing CD that is perfect for everyone! I bought this for my daughter, who will give birth within the month. I know the power of sound on healing and soothing the body, so I thought this kind of CD was vital to her health, and the well-being of the baby. After actually hearing the music, I was more than pleased...I was amazed at how soothing and healing it was. I will recommend it, and plan to buy one for myself!
BARBARA PARKER

"A very beautiful CD for moms and babies! As a childbirth educator and founder of Hypnobabies, I love the beautiful relaxing melodies for both mothers and babies. I have given this CD as a gift to help calm fussy newborns and soothe new mommies and it works like a charm! It is also wonderful for my pregnant Hypnobabies students, for relaxation and hypnosis practice and easing insomnia. I also have it playing daily in our office and everyone here is so relaxed, balanced and centered when it is playing."
KERRY TUSCHOFF

"This was a favorite and very special gift, that lasts forever…so precious for our little 'miracle baby' girl and my daughter and Yia Yia. It's so refreshing and peaceful in a rushed and busy world. I recommend it to everyone. Thank you so much."
YIA YIA MARY

My newborn granddaughter has colic and the only music that calms her down and helps her sleep is Maria’s.”
CL. GRANDMOTHER

“I’ve used the “Mother’s Melody” CD for chronically-ill babies and noted that they not only had an easier time falling asleep, some even slept an hour longer than usual. The CD worked so well with the babies in our ward that the nurses were anxiously waiting to use it for their patients. It would disappear and I would have to go looking for it because the CD was being used on yet another baby. The other nurses also commented on how well it reduced the stress for both themselves and the babies.”
LEE SEPIN R.N. - NEONATAL INTENSIVE CARE UNIT NURSE

“Her gentle melodies were powerful and inherently feminine. Areas of tension and places where I had been holding fears and anxieties became more relaxed and many new insights began to surface related to my feelings about becoming a mother and being pregnant. Listening to the workshop tape after the session was a wonderful way to continue strengthening the bond with my baby through this subtle yet powerful musical journey.”
A FIRST TIME MOTHER

THE 5 MINUTE HOUR SERIES

“Maria's music has made a huge difference in my stress level and how I feel. And since it takes just a few minutes of listening to get the healing release, it's one of those rare finds that truly fits into the lives of busy women.”
DR. SUSAN LARK

After listening to your music, I want to purchase everything you have ever composed! I am a personal trainer, a yoga instructor and a fitness consultant. My clients' ears perk up and their bodies completely relax within a few minutes of hearing your music. The first words out of their mouths are, "it's so healing" and then, "I love this music". I have to agree.

Each day of mine is so filled trying to help people relax that often times I feel a mid-day slump coming on and after a short 5-minute meditation with your CD, I feel energized and ready to take on the rest of my day. Thank you for your healing music, it comes to all of us in a great time of need. After purchasing many CD's over the years, your music is the most healing, most soothing and most rejuvenating. Your music will change many lives...for the better. Thank you for sharing your gift!
LAURA STEVENS

My cats love listening to your music. They get on their backs, put up all 4 paws and go into a trance. Even my ferrel cat who was a stray and tends to stay outside will come to the door to be let in so he can listen.
L.W.

After I started playing The 5 Minute Hour I looked out into the congregation and couldn't' believe what I saw. No one was moving. There were all quiet and still, as if they were in a trance.
