“You must be a musician…”
This wasn’t the first time I had heard this. Heading to San Francisco on the Ferry Boat from Sausalito. I had just lead a group of fellow software engineers from Hack Reactor on a bicycle ride over the Golden Gate bridge.
We were discussing our experiences with forming and [...]

This is my chance to give you a small taste of the work I’ve been able to bring to thousands of people in the three years since graduating from CIIS as a certified sound healer. I subsequently became a Certified Music Practitioner for health care settings.

Luckily, a small sign caught my eye, it said “Arcosanti 2.5 Miles” I decided it was too close to pass up, so I drove down the washboard gravel road, taking in the stark terrain…
Music is an incredible vehicle of expression for seniors who are losing or have lost verbal communication and processing abilities…I have seen people, who are not usually able to respond to simple verbal cues such as “how are you?”, sing along to familiar songs…
… the group energy had started to drift. Listen as the group focuses on the rhythm, and we create a beautiful song together…
