I don't know if it's very creative, but a really appropriate title for a CD about Transcendentalism (and a title that is already famous at least to old people like me) is "I Did It My Way."

Transcendentalism is largely about the idea that you are supposed to do things the way you think best.  And it believes that you should believe what you want to.  In both cases, you are not supposed to really care what society says about you.  So for those reasons, I'd say "I Did It My Way" would work.  Like I said, though, I don't know if that's creative enough.

I think that the ideas for your CD Title should relate to the themes of Transcendentalism.  Think about some of the ideas of transcendentalism and determine how titles can fit.  There could be elements of nature ("Here Comes the Sun") or concepts of individuality ("Me, Myself, and I") or the idea of remaining distinct from social orders ("Standing on top of the World.")  These and others would be themes that can be incorporated into your CD and the title for it.

Since Transcendentalism emphasizes the importance of the individual as well as this individual's communion with Nature, perhaps the two ideas can be combined with ideas of Thoreau and Emerson:

The Transparent Eye's Deliberate Nature Walk.

How about a title such as "Back to Nature" or "The Earth is Calling Us"  to reflect the move back to communing with nature that many transcendentalists believed in.  Or, you could even call it something like: "American Hippie Originals"

How about, "You already know what is on this CD."

The title of a CD or any other product intended to convey something to an intended audience (like readers or viewers), must reflect something about the the information contained in the product. It is preferable if  the title also give a feel for the way a product is different from all other similar products on that subject. I am afraid, by inviting ideas for name of your CD from people who don't have the slightest idea about your CD except that it is about transcendentalism, you are going against the principles of assigning titles that have greatest appeal and utility for the user of the product.

I thin you would do well to look into the contents of the CD and identify what is unique and valuable in it. Then you can go about finding innovative ways of representing that in a short title.
