Sanctuary

Album Description

The Sanctuary album was the first album release from Wayfarer. It draws from the influences of world music, new age, jazz, and electronica. The music takes on a journey through different aspects of life and engages in the emotions felt by one along the life journey. It is each person’s imagination and creativity, tempered and crafted by their life quest, that becomes the unique gift that the individual offers the universe.

While the Earth can be thought of as an organism and humanity thought of as one, the importance of the individual is paramount. It is through our unique perspectives that we find different experiences in life and craft our persona as we journey through it. Each of our journeys is unique, and if there is any importance in life at all, then there is importance to these unique life experiences. So many explore the spiritual quest as a search for wholeness. While there is value in this, one should not neglect the search for uniqueness either. Life is not simply an experience in which we are pitted to just find illusion in our individuality and to escape it. Life is an experience of importance to cherish our individuality, shape it, and allow it to grow. For when it is over, our unique experiences, imagination, and creativity is all we have left to offer the universe.
