Publisher's book description:

Nishmat Tzedek, A Righteous Soul, is a book and compact disc set dedicated to the victims of terrorism in Israel and around the world. Nishmat Tzedek  takes listeners on a poignant musical journey and its companion book is a feast for the eyes as well as the soul. Through the universal language of music, in images and in words, this multidimensional work expresses our desire to offer comfort and hope to the grieving families, and to let them know they are neither forgotten nor alone.

Comprised of a moving, new choral symphony by world renowned composer Meir Finkelstein and a book featuring breathtaking images of Israel by award-winning photographer Eric Lawton, with inspirational writings by distinguished thinkers  and philosophers including Nobel Prize winner Elie Wiesel and artist Judy Chicago, Nishmat Tzedek  is a gift of the heart to the families who have lost loved ones to terrorism in Israel since September 2000.  A set is being donated free of charge to each of the victims' families.

While the families of terror victims receive financial assistance from the Israeli government, emotional support is harder to come by. The Jerusalem-based Terror Victims Association provides victimís families with services including counseling, youth programs such as "Big Brother-Big Sister" matching and summer camp, social gatherings and outings, babysitting and food preparation for hospitalized victims, organizing public memorials, and lobbying on behalf of victims and their families.

We invite you to support this meaningful project, obtain copies of "Nishmat Tzedek" for your own family, friends, and loved ones, and participate in the healing process for the more than 800 families who have lost loved ones to terrorism in the past three years.  We hope that you will join us in offering the healing power of music, poetry and art to help relieve their suffering, and offer them hope on their road to recovery.

To order and learn more about Nishmat Tzedek,  please visit our website at (hotlink: There you may view the photographs, sample audio excerpts, read an introduction, and place orders. Nishmat Tzedek  is available for a donation of $50 per compact disc and book set, plus shipping and handling ($35 of each donation is tax deductible).  Donations will defray the costs of production and distribution to the families in Israel, and provide funds to support the important work of the Terror Victims Association.

Publisher's book description:

A dramatic and soul-stirring book, The Soul Aflame, with photographs by Eric Lawton and edited by Phil Cousineau, bestselling author of The Art of Pilgrimage, is a contemporary version of a medieval book of hours--a classical device for "making holy the hours." The mystery of the soul's relationship with the source of creativity is explored in an inspirational blend of brilliant color photographs with the wisdom of the ages in this 'pocket cathedral' of meditative writings from around the world. 

Photographs from around the world are paired with thought-provoking passages by diverse thinkers, including Henry David Thoreau, Albert Einstein, Martha Graham, Elie Wiesel, Hildegard von Bingen, Black Elk, Emily Dickinson, Nikos Kazantzakis, Albert Schweitzer, Paul Dunbar, Rumi, and many more. Poets, diplomats, mystics, filmmakers, musicians, dancers, scientists, philosophers, painters and other creative artists reflect on the burning passion of the creative soul.

A sequel to Cousineau and
Lawton's bestselling The Soul of the World, this photographic and poetic book speaks to our desire for a profound and powerful connection between body and soul, and explores the mystery of the creative process.
