Crystal River Artists is a consortium of musicians, artists, poets, and filmmakers committed to providing art conceived and created in a spiritual context for spiritually intuitive people everywhere. George Bowker lives with his family in southern California. Married for thirty two years, he and his wife, Aldean, are blessed with two beautiful daughters and five grandchildren.

He is not only a participating artist at Crystal River Artists, but is also the Creative Director and Executive Producer. Besides music George is known to try his hand as a watercolorist and a poet. When not engaged in the creative stuff he can be found around town and at New Age and Pagan Festivals doing dream interpretation, spiritual readings, spiritual cleansing work, healing, and leading spiritual encounters. George also mentors spiritual leaders in probing greater depths of spiritual life. In recent times George has been highly sought after as a spiritual dream interpreter. Many people contact him personally and through email with their dreams. Through dream interpretation, as well as other spiritual resources, George speaks destiny into the lives of spiritually aware and hungry people. Currently George is developing a group of qualified dream interpreters around him to assist him in this important work. The Music is composed, recorded, and produced in a spiritual environment. It is designed to enhance and facilitate spiritual encounter. Lyric piano flows effortlessly amongst orchestral strings and winds, as well as esoteric electronics and vocals. From beginning to end each CD is a musical journey leading the listener's spirit upward and outward. Relax, focus your spirit into the spiritual flow of the music, and take the entire journey - a journey of discovery, life, and love. You will never be the same. Dance With the Rain is the second release in the Nation Healers Trilogy. Also in the series are Desert Dance and Gaza Day Break. Rain is a remarkable event. Yes, there are those destructive storms and floods that give rain a bad name, but most of the time rain is a welcomed relief from dryness, a needed resource for growth, or simply just fun. So much beauty around us depends on the rain. Rivers depend on rain falling somewhere. Whether the barely-a-trickle dry washes of our Southern California home, or the mightiest of rivers like the Mekong, MacKenzie, or Mississippi, every river starts with rain or snow falling in higher elevations, charging great aquifers with precious water. Where water flows in rivers it brings life. Therefore the life force of several rivers is celebrated in this collection. When one stands on the shores of a great river there is an inexorable pull to either travel up to it's source or down to it's terminus. Something draws us to a river -- it is a source, a highway, or maybe just a good mystery needing to be solved. Yet there is more to it than that. There is a spiritual draw in each of us to find a life source, to dance in the rain, as it were. Inside us there is a hope that we can connect spiritually; not just connect, but discover life and destiny. So then, this collection is ultimately about hope. We hope to connect spiritually, that is true. But beyond the veil of what we see around us is a realm of spirit that holds great hope that it might connect with us. Spiritual life is far more than becoming a spiritual person, exploring spiritual gifting, or gaining significant spiritual power. There is a level of relationship in the spirit that transcends all of that. Herein is hope. Reach out for the transcendent place where your spirit engages the realms of the spirit on a relational level. There you will find that your hope is realized, and so is the hope that resides in the realm of the spirit itself.
