Many of you may not know that I am in the process of getting a masters in counseling psychology with a focus on how sound/music can be incorporated into healing modalities that address distress, trauma, and work towards attaining greater wellbeing.
Personally speaking, I find music (in both practice and as a listener) to be a cathartic and restorative experience. It offers a non-verbal path towards self-reflection and deeper understandings that words often fail to articulate. I am always on the lookout for insight around this topic and came across this article on Pitchfork of all places. Maybe you’ll find something to connect with here…?
I’m also interested in learning your stories of how you connect through music and sound as a tool for healing practice. Are there things that work/don’t work for you?
