Editor’s note:  I have personally experienced David’s shows back in Ontario and to say that they are transformative is truly an understatement. I highly recommend that you book early and bring a friend, because you will more than likely need another person to validate and review the event with you the next day. It can definitely shift your perspective. If you are a caregiver, a person working in the medical field or hospice worker, this show can also be an important tool for energetic realignment and self-care. 

 

Six weeks ago, David Hickey embarked on the 2019 Cosmic Sound Canada Wide Tour with his family. At the end of August, he will begin performing Crystal Journey shows in venues all around Vancouver Island, including the Comox Valley. The intent of the music is to create expansive and relaxing music, to awaken consciousness and to provide a Cosmic Musical Journey into the Unknown.

Shows will take place in two sets each lasting approximately 40 to 45 minutes.  No two shows are alike. After 18 years and thousands of concerts the music has taken on a life of its own. Music can help ease some of our stress and help us regain our focus. David’s usual set up includes 5-10 Quartz Crystal Bowls, 8-10 Paiste Planet and Symphonic Gongs, 2 Persian Santoors and Harmonica. Nothing is amplified, pre-recorded or rehearsed. Each Crystal Journey set and performance is improvised, sonically pure and unique. You can purchase CDs and other merchandise at the shows with cash or cheque or online with a credit card.

Depending on the location, you are invited to take a seat or lay down as close to the instruments as possible to get the greatest effect. Remember to bring a yoga mat, blanket and/or pillow as most venues will have floor space to lay down. Chairs for regular seating are also available. Where possible you are encouraged to share rides and car pool. It not only saves gas but helps to reduce our carbon foot print on the earth.

In David’s own words:

Well, we are 6 weeks into our summer/fall tour. It’s been incredible and continues to build energy. Thursday night in Grey Creek BC the energy was extremely palpable.

In 18 years of doing this I would say it was something I never imagined possible. I was in and out of consciousness, melting into the Gongs and flowing into the Santoors and Bowls. I have added the Harmonica to the mix and its become a huge part of the show. It`s added a layer of melody and texture that makes this even more fun and that`s exactly what is needed these days. We need to have more fun, this trip has been just that. We have 3 more months of tour and shows keep getting added.

My energy level is high and I feel great. Many many new people are arriving at the shows, I would say about 90% new. That’s amazing and many didn’t even know what this was all about. I sense a major breakthrough in Crystal Journey getting bigger and bigger. We have no limit set on our direction. In my visions I have seen shows at venues that hold thousands of awaking souls. everyone connecting to the flow and frequency of the the music. That`s exactly what was happening in the 60`s and we are in the 50th year of Woodstock, coincidence? I think not…

Speaking of Woodstock, Crystal Journey is performing 3 very special shows to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Woodstock, August 15-17. The first show is August 15th in the amazing Summerhill Pyramid Winery in Kelowna, BC. August 16th in Kamloops Bc and the 17th in Vernon BC. 

There have been a few new shows added to the tour and an update of the the next few weeks of shows are listed below. I will be flying back to Ontario for three shows in September and then right back to BC for the rest of the tour. As always I post daily pictures and short descriptions of our journey on Facebook. I know a few of you are not on Facebook and we are also on on Instagram. Here are the links to those pages:

I look forward to meeting new people and seeing old faces in the coming months. As always I encourage and ask your help in spreading the word of shows in areas where you may know people we are stopping in at. This community is building and it’s because of you and we Really appreciate that from the bottom our our hearts. Crystal Journey is 18 years young and growing into something magical.

Blessings and Light,

David & Family
