From the First Heartbeat

A mother and child have a natural connection from conception. The development of an infant within the womb is optimized in a peaceful environment. Suzuki used music to create an environment of beauty within which the sensitivity of a child (unborn and born) could blossom. The ability to connect with the Mother and others provides the foundation of how he or she relates to others throughout his or her life and provides a platform from which the child’s awareness of, compassion and empathy for others soars.
This is one of three videos which comprise an SECE series produced by Wan Tsai Chen.
