Words and Music by Deborah Koff-Chapin
The two audio recordings on this page were created to support a deep experience with the Portals of Presence. It would be helpful to read the guidebook before listening. If you like to use writing, drawing, music or another creative process to integrate your experience, prepare what you need before beginning. There is an option to pause within each audio to allow more time for meditation and creative exploration. Bookmark this page even if you download the audios to your device. The written instructions tell you how to prepare for each audio experience. If you are touched by Deborah’s music in these recordings, find out about her live online Song Bath Sanctuary.
Prepare for Audio 1 – Deep Gazing with a Single Portal
Before listening to this audio, select one Portal card to work with. There are two ways to select cards. One approach is to choose according to your felt sense when viewing the images. The other is to have the cards face down and choose without seeing the images, trusting synchronicity to guide your hand. Each approach has its own advantages. Read more about this on pages 9-10 of the guidebook. When you have selected your card, place it face down, so you see the the pattern on the back. Turn on Audio 1 and close your eyes.

Prepare for Audio 2 – A Circle of Portals
Before beginning this practice, place the cards face up in a circle on the floor. If you use all 72 it will require a large open space. You can minimize the space needed by creating two concentric circles. The outer circle has approximately 40 cards and the inner circle around 30. Or create a single circle with a smaller selection of cards, using the space you have available. If the circle is large enough, you might like to lie down on a pad or sit on a chair or cushion in the center of the circle for part of this exercise. Have these nearby to place in the center and use when needed. When ready, stand outside the circle with your eyes open and turn on Audio 2.
