by Pauline Oliveros

Listening is a multi-dimensional dynamic process. Ways of listening are many fold. These ways of listening are based on experience, habit and training...

 

Editor's Note: Are we really listening to our surroundings? How can we each listen to heal ourselves and to inject some calmness into our busy lives? A most refreshing and poetic entry written by Pauline Oliveros.

 

Music Therapy & Sound Healing


by Jill Mattson

The field of Sound Healing is a rapidly growing discipline that is recently attracting a lot of interest. Many of the techniques that are employed stem from ancient traditions. Modern scientific research, however, is adding to our understanding of how sound interacts with and enhances our bodies and minds...

 

Editor's Note: What exactly is it about sound and music which touches us? It's difficult to place our finger on one specific aspect as the experience is different for every individual. Perhaps this is what makes music and sound universally beautiful. Jill Mattson explores three aspects of music and sound; intervals, pitch, and rhythm.

Editor's Note: Crystal bowls are used to create a soothing and healing sonic environment for individuals receiving sound healing treatment. These wonderful instruments are played by rubbing a mallet around the rim of a bowl to produce beautiful harmonic overtones. In the video, several crystal quartz bowls (each with varying diameters and frequency vibrations) are played during a sound healing session.

Music Therapy & Sound Healing

Music Therapy & Sound Healing

Music Therapy & Sound Healing


by Rebecca McClary, MA, MT-BC

I recently traveled to Fiji and I have to say, I had some of my most memorable musical experiences of my life. My experiences ranged from being greeted with song by an entire village as our boat arrived to Beqa (pronounced Bang-ga) Island, sitting with the village musicians who were singing and playing their guitars and lali (log) drum during a traditional kava ceremony, to receiving a Fijian Bobo (pronounced Mbombo) massage and hearing the ladies in the shop periodically sing church hymns...

 

 

Music Therapy & Sound Healing


by Linda Weaver Clarke

Do I really have to practice? came the disgruntled voice of a teenager.

 

How many times have we heard this? I remember when my mother encouraged me to practice my instrument and how I tried to find one excuse after another to get out of it. Soon, she was sitting at the piano, willing to help me practice. I reluctantly began playing, not putting my heart into it, feeling a bit rebellious. But it did not take long until I began to feel the soothing notes of the music and my soul began to relinquish the unruly attitude within me...

 

Music Therapy & Sound Healing


by Jennifer Buchanan, BMT, MTA

It’s Thursday morning and eight visually impaired babies and toddlers accompany their parents to the music therapy program at the Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB). They file in one by one, many of the parent’s looking disheveled and tired. The parents help each child take off their coat before finding a comfortable place on the floor. The child sits in front while their parent cradles their little body from behind...

 

Editor's Note: Children with visual impairments can find a sense of relaxation with the help of soothing sounds. Jennifer Buchanan, Past-President of the Canadian Association for Music Therapy and owner of JB Music Therapy, shares a descriptive account of an interactive group music therapy session for young children with visual impairments.

 

Music Therapy & Sound Healing


by Dean Quick

Most days I come in to work knowing what to expect, in reference to environment, client behavior, songs I may use, staff member conversations, etc.. I think this is true for most people who have maintained the same job for an extended period. I think there is something in this comfortable frame of mind and space that allows us to burnout...

 

Editor's Note: An issue that all therapists face at some point of their career is burn out. Dean Quick writes about how to stay well aware of signs of burn out, and suggests a few things we can do as therapists to avoid it.

MUSIC THERAPY & SOUND HEALING

Keep Breathing: Music for Speech, for Life

by Natasha Thomas

Imagine running into someone you haven’t seen in a long time. You recognize their face and feel pleased to see them, your arms open wide for a hug and you say “Hello! How ARE you?” before you can realize what you really want to know is Who they are – you’ve completely forgotten their name...
