Berthold Auerbach once wrote that music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life. This is what happens when you listen to “The Hidden Valley,” a masterpiece by a Norwegian composer Peder B. Helland.
His YouTube channel, counting more than nine million followers at the time of this writing, started with a simple vision: to create a place that we can visit whenever we want to unwind and feel refreshed.
Please enjoy this beautiful piece of relaxing music for stress relief accompanied by images of mountains, forests, and rivers.
Complement “The Hidden Valley” with Henry David Thoreau on why he went to live in the woods, Richard Louv on the spiritual necessity of nature for the young, and Cindy Derby’s watercolor meditation on our inseparable link to nature.
