The Mission to: "Change The World Through Love" with my Music and Art. JPF
My journey into New Mexico has introduced me to sacred and mystical places and for 4 years I have visited & produced my music/art in the beautiful village of Pilar in the Rio Grande Gorge Canyon. It has been a tremendous aid in my personal healing process to embrace the natural beauty in the variety of locations/landscapes, witness the spectacular vibrant sunsets, take in the amazing clear night viewings of the Milky Way and have intimate contacts with spirit animals. These experiences have allowed me the inspiration- direct source access- to channel my heart and love into this music & art that transforms me. My wish is that it can do the same for you and transport you to the Magical Enchanted Lands! Sincerly, John Patrick Funk

    Spirit Winds
      "Spirit Winds" is the latest Album compilation (Volume 5) of The New Mexico Enchanted Lands Soundscapes that features tracks with my Native American Flute performance. This 5th installment was completed in October of 2016 and is the last volume of my musical explorations in the Beautiful Northern New Mexico & Rio Grande Gorge Valley. This Album compilation features 4 new tracks (with 4 existing flute tracks taken from the 4 previous volumes) that was produced as a result of many people asking for a album featuring music with my Native American flute playing. The name "Spirt Winds" was recieved from the Jicarilla Apache Medicine cave in the mouth of Rio Grande Gorge Canyon located in Pilar where I heard the "Spirit Winds" summoning me in the canyon. It has been a honor for me to produce these 5 volumes of the Enchanted Lands music that has enriched my life with the beauty and mystery of the Land of Enchantment :) Love and Blessings, John Patrick Funk
