People have been using sound and music for healing since the dawn of humanity. Every culture has some form of sound healing, from Tibetan Singing Bowls, to Shamanic Medicine Melodies to American Gospel Music.
In addition to the cultural expressions of sound healing, there are measurable, scientific principles such as Cymatics and Binaural Beats that can be used to bring about positive changes in our health and well being.
I have made my living as a composer and music producer since 1992, and I have always had some sense of the connection between sound and healing. These connections became crystal clear a few years ago when I earned my certificate in Sound, Voice, and Music in the Healing Arts from The California Institute of Integral Studies.
I have been deeply inspired by the work of Silvia Nakkach, John Beaulieu, and Pat Moffitt Cook. I have also had the great good fortune of performing with and learning from friends and leaders in this field including Silvia Nakkach, Loriel Starr, Barbara Juniper, Karma Moffett, Jeremy Marais, Suellen Primost, Lauren Rose, Joss Jaffe and Chuck Doud.
