For me, it’s mostly music related. Throw in a beautiful vista of Nature, and it is guaranteed. My optimum combination is “Variations on the Kanon by Johann Pacheibel” as played by George Winston on his “December” CD (Windham Hill Productions, 1982), and driving through the meadow at Prairie Creek National Park while approaching an old redwood forest. Heaven. Any other beautiful vista would probably do it, too, but that’s the combination that gets me every time.
It is amazing how music taps so directly into our souls. Even when I was a practicing Christian, it was the music and singing that moved me the most. I have other friends who find that with opera, or Celtic music. And anything with a good beat evokes the primal in me. 🙂
