In the 1971–95 period Mira Omerzel intensively dedicated her time to fieldwork in ethnomusicological investigation of Slovene musical heritage (of instruments in particular), which she already began in her secondary-school years. In 1978 she founded the ensemble for the revival of Slovene musical heritage which assumed the name Trutamora Slovenica on its 10th anniversary. In the 1980–97 period, Mira Omerzel–Mirit published numerous ethnomusicological studies on: dulcimer or small cymbalom; pan-pipes; žvegla (wooden cross flute without keys); the banda (typical ensemble) of Prekmurje and big-cymbalom; the development of zithers – drone, harmonic and violin; hurdy-gurdy; the sound identity of Slovenianhood of yesterday and today; the sound identity of Slovene folk instruments; the harmony and disharmony in folk music; on quantum physics in contemporary ethnomusicology; bone flutes and beginnings of Slovene, European and world instrumental musical history; the typology of bone whistles, pipes and flutes and supposed Paleolithic wind instruments in Slovenia and worldwide (the latter in collaboration with archaeologists), etc.

In 1980 Mira Omerzel launched an investigation into the inaudible sound-energy fields and (in 1982) experienced clinical death and the comeback to her body, then (in 1983) a spontaneous cosmic initiation. In the winter of 1994 she unexpectedly experienced the so-called effect of living without food (sustained on prana only), in August 2000 she made a decision on continuous living on prana. A similar devotion to the original vital Intelligence was experienced by Mojka Žagar (in 2001); in 1990 Mira's 10-year old son Tine consciously entered the spiritual path with transcendental meditation. Since 1995, the three performers have developed their abilities with transcendental meditation and Mira also with yoga levitation and the study of Vedic astrologic science – jyotish, ayurveda, etc. Afterwards, Mira also began to reveal and revive spiritual knowledge from days of yore of diverse cultures. After her shift to the prana sustained life she set forth on a journey (also with Mojka and Tine) round the world among diverse primeval peoples of the world of Cosmic-Terrestrial consciousness, among the sages, spiritual teachers and healers who taught her for 10 consecutive years about the forgotten wisdom of life and techniques of spiritual growth.

In 1979 the Omerzel-Terlep duo won the “Zlata ptica” (Golden Bird) prize for their research work, artistic revival of archival materials and educational work, and in 1982 they also won the “Priznanje Glasbene mladine” (Musical Youth Prize) for their educational work and animation of Slovene school-children. The duo and two vocal soloists recorded 2 LPs, one in 1980 and another in 1982, both entitled “Slovenske ljudske pesmi in glasbila” (Slovene Folk Songs and Instruments) (I-II, RTB), and a LP and a CD entitled “Zvočnost slovenskih pokrajin” (Sound Image of Slovene Regions) (III/1987, IV/1991 - with guests; private publishing) and won the Yugoslav Radio and Television “Orpheus” golden prize in 1986 for the first two LPs. The cooperation of Mira Omerzel (the duo and the ensemble) with the Slovene Radio and Television has also been very fruitful; she devised and implemented a number of scholarly and art broadcasts. In 1985, she won two golden prizes at the Moscow International Festival of Ethnological Films “Raduga” for her professional draft of a musical documentary film about the last banda (typical ensemble) in Prekmurje, “Beltinška banda”, one in the series of her ethnomusicological documentary TV serial entitled “Slovenska ljudska glasbila in godci” (Slovene Folk Instruments and Musicians). In 1989 the broadcast about the musical identity of Gorenjsko region, “Komur se dremlje, naj gre spat” (Let the One Who Is Sleepy Go to Bed), from the TV art serial of the Trutamora Slovenica trio entitled “Zvočnost slovenskih pokrajin” (Sound Image of Slovene Regions; also after the script by Mira Omerzel), won two more golden prizes at the “Raduga” festival at Moscow. (Both serials were directed by Marjan Frankovič). In 1991 a CD, “Der bleiche Mond”/”Bledi mesec” (Pale Moon), was published (by Trikont, Munich), featuring documentary records, done by Mira, of the last remaining musicians playing old “pre-classical” folk instruments.

In 1995 Mira Omerzel-Mirit began with the courses and workshops on sound, consciousness, unconditional love of the soul, on the forgotten traditions of the peoples of the world, ancient shaman healing techniques, etc, and in the same year she had her first lecture in Ljubljana on the influence of sound on a human being. In 1997 workshops began entitled “Transcendence of Consciousness and Sound”. In the same year (1997) Mira Omerzel-Mirit successfully defended at the Faculty of Arts in Ljubljana (Department of Musicology) her doctoral dissertation entitled “Historical Development of Pre-classical Folk Instruments on the Slovene Ethnic Territory from the Paleolithic to the Present Days”.

In the autumn of 1999 she also founded the ensemble for meditative music and transcendental experience of sound, named Vedun, which, at the end of the same year, released its first CD for healing with sound – “Vedun”. In 2000 the ensemble Trutamora Slovenica won an honour from the “Slovenian Institute for Adult Education” for the many years of its activity. In the year 2000 the TV Slovenia made a broadcast with the ensemble, “Zvočnost slovenske duše” (Sound Image of Slovenian Soul), and in the years 2002–2004 a double CD “Zvočnost slovenske duše” was recorded with the help of sound masters of the Radio Slovenia, which was released in May 2005 by the ZKP Radio Slovenia, and afterwards also a double CD “Od Miklavža do treh Kraljev” (From Saint Nicholas to the Epiphany; The December Rite Time of Our Ancestors) which was published by the same publishing house in the same year in December. In 2004 Mira Omerzel-Mirit was awarded the Štrekelj Prize for her exceptional achievements in the field of collecting and preserving Slovenian folk heritage of both literature and songs. In 2007 the ensemble Trutamora Slovenica was nominated for the Prešeren Fund Prize for the published CDs on Slovene musical heritage “Zvočnost slovenske duše” and “Od Miklavža do Treh kraljev”, and in 2008, it was awarded the Julij Betetto Prize by the Slovenian Musical Artists Society for artistic achievements in the field of musical performance.

In 2005 Mira added to her well-established workshops also the courses or the so-called intensives, during which she reveals (assisted by Mojka and Tine) to the people the mysteries of sound and the neglected life wisdom, concurrently performing the so-called cosmic sound surgery. In 2007 she received (within the framework of the “2007 Sunny Personality”) the Honours for life-work in the field of personal and spiritual growth, healthy living, etc.

Published in 2009 was the 2nd CD of the ensemble Vedun, with the title “Veliki slušni Logos Univerzuma - Letni solsticij” (The Great Auditory Logos of the Universe - Summer Solstice) which is the first of the cycle “Štirje letni časi" (The Four Seasons) – for relaxing, developing consciousness and self-healing by means of the channelled media sound. In the double album (in print) “Vilinska nit zvočne preje” (The Fairy Thread Of Sound Yarn) (2008/2009) the performers joined the abilities and capacities of both the ensembles – Trutamora Slovenica and Vedun. Published in a short time in 2009 will be an extensive trilogy by Mira Omerzel-Mirit “Kozmična telepatija onkraj misli in slišnega zvoka” (Cosmic Telepathy beyond the Thoughts and Audible Sound) (I – Life without Food and Inter-dimensional Travel of North-American Indians, Mexican Mayas; II – Life, Death and Cosmic Surgery of Indonesian Balians, Australian Aborigines, Brazilian and Philippine Surgeons, Hawaiian Huna Tradition; III – Cosmic Initiations and Initiation Rites of Ancient Egyptians and Ancient Greeks, Pre-historical European Peoples, Celts, Illyrians, Old Slaves, Siberian – Tuva and Hakasia Shamans), which has been in the process of making since 2000 and brings the ancient wisdom about the sound of the past for the future. Also in preparation is the 2nd CD of the cycle “Štirje letni časi ” – “Zvočna preja s svetimi pesmimi in glasbili ljudstev sveta – Jesenski ekvinokcij” (The Four Seasons – Sound Yarn with Holy Songs and Instruments of the Peoples of the World – Autumn Equinox) with holy songs of diverse cultures and shaman instruments and sound producing implements of the peoples of the world and the channelled healing sound.
