The Spirit of Sound

Sound has, throughout the ages, been used to enhance, to heal, to provoke, to invoke the Divine; to embrace, to embody, to realize greater realities than are commonly perceived; to open doorways to otherwise impenetrable states of consciousness. Spiritual cultures the world over still practice such ages-old traditions, which are the foundation of modern music and sound practices, from rock music to gnostic chants, and aboriginal trance states.

In modern science, the intentional use of sound has been shown to enhance wellness through the use of coherent emotional states. Adding guided imagery practices brings about even greater states of well being as measure by science.

We shall explore the nature of coherence, and contemporary and ancient sacred sound practices, coupling this with meditative practices, used to bring about heightened states of wellness, or awakened states of consciousness, by modern practitioners, and traditional spiritual societies, such as Tibetan Buddhist, or indigenous cultures.

Contemplative Musicianship

Harpist/singer, international concert and recording artist, lay Benedictine and musician-clinician, the founder of the palliative medical modality of music-thanatology will speak about the past and future of hospice medicine from within the gesture of contemplative musicianship.  Drawing upon history, clinical narrative, story, image, song, and her more than three decades of clinical care of the dying, the artist will present the voices of patients and their caregivers through time, with special emphasis upon the gifts of monastic medicine, Ficino, and the prescriptive music that Chalice of Repose Project associates bring to the bedside of the dying.  Her session will be experiential and didactic, will include music and open dialogue, and will emphasize the contemplative practices underlying the commitment of music-thanatology

A Physician's Sound Healing Journey

As a physician, I have never found a more powerful and transforming healing modality than music and sound.  This workshop will use the sounds of metal and quartz crystal singing bowls with guided meditation, imagery, and chants, to help you create a harmony within.  This harmony allows you to experience inner silence.  Silence is not, as commonly believed, the absence of sound.  Rather, it is like an empty vessel that allows you to behold and connect with your own divine essence, which is the source of  healing and well-being.  These are the techniques that have benefited thousands of my patients over the last 15 years, and I am happy to share them with you in this workshop.
