"By far the best form of complementary medicine around:

This provides close to immediate and deep relaxation for both patients and caregivers."
A Cancer Center employee -The DVD is played continuously, all day in their waiting room


Ellen Britt describes her experience of Banana Sky DVD as it played in front of a conference room -
"A calmness and a real presence.
everyone's eyes were riveted on the screen."

"There is a lot of scientific study out there that says if we can't be in nature, just looking at pictures of nature can have a soothing calming effect...

I can imagine this having uses perhaps with Alzheimer's patients, certainly with hospitalized patients. For anyone who is undergoing any kind of stress/anxiety situations, this would just be a real gift."

Thank you, Racheli Smilovits -

"The photographic images and music transition.
A "Metaphor for Life", light and dark,
Inspiring an even deeper relaxation about life itself.

- Click in far left square to hear me, Sheila Finkelstein, a former caregiver for my beloved husband Sam who had Parksinson's disease for 11 years, describe how my experience with a rapidly growing banana plant, created emotional shifts for me.

Banana Sky DVD emerged from my fascination with the play of light, shadows and shapes as I watched the fast growth of a banana tree in my back yard.

Later, as I viewed my photographs unfolding on my computer or TV, I noticed a distinct reduction of the stress and anxiety that resulted from the changes in our lives resulting from the effects of Parkinson’s disease.

I asked Jeannie Fitzsimmons to add her compelling music to the images on this DVD so you, too, could relish the same peaceful, soothing experience washing over you.

Experience this peace and relaxation any time you wish

"I just got a chance to watch & listen to your preview. It wasSOOOOO wonderful! I have been having a hectic day, and it brought my chaos level way down to a manageable level. It made me want more! When I get home I am going to watch the DVD and thoroughly enjoy myself." PAULA BATTAGLIO

"I watched your DVD twice. It is stunningly beautiful ... and educational. It has inspired me." Marifran Korb

"I found it a lovely meditation... beautiful, interesting photos, wonderful color, graceful movement and rhythm... playful peek-a-boo findings... captivating interplay of light and shadow. I loved the "life cycle' of the banana plant and fruit... birth to death and transformation. And the music was certainly fitting." LINDA GIPSON

"Very Peaceful and I need Peaceful." CAREGIVER to a spouse with Parkinson's Disease

"At last! And what a beautiful experience I had watching your new DVD on my TV. Very relaxing and inspiring. The photos, of course, are beautiful, and I really enjoyed the music, too. This would be a nice “tape” to run while meditating or trying to stretch and relax before bed.

I was astonished at the many parts of the banana plant, and particularly loved the tiny pink blooms all lined up like little piggies ready to suckle! I also appreciate the amazing sunset orange colors of the plant, and I like the shots where they are reaching, stretching up to that beautiful blue Florida sky!" Nancy Sellers


A dance
A rhythm
A strength
A presence

Dancing in the wind
Rhythmically leaves split and get lighter as they get larger
Blood red trunk
Rich and full the bottom is

Unfolding with power each of the leaves
from the center erect
then opening out majestically
to the right
the left
then slightly forward to us.
Where is backward?
Need to check.

“The other day, I can say with reasonable certainty I had the closest thing to an emotional breakdown. After several incidents, I returned home and watched Banana sky. I saw majestic leaves ever reaching for the Light.

The leaves breathed, moved, spiraled, fringed themselves, changed their shape, and every evolution was a magnificent expression...

I saw “cocoon”-like leaves tight--reminding me of when I was not ready to face something or when I was closed. Then, as they gracefully surrendered to the perfect timing, they moved, morphed, opened and were exalted in their journey....

Oh, Sheila! What a precious and magnificent work, complete with the vibration of sound.... It was right on time and my life is made so much better by it. Thank you! ” Nori Slater, RN

"Ah! I finally had the chance to relax into your DVD and I am delighted to tell you the experience was divine! I found the entire experience to be very soothing and filled with peace.

The visions of the beauty of nature and its miracles were truly magnificent." Debbie Friedman, Cleaning Out the Closet of the Mind, Inc.,
