Summer Solstice Arrives

Thank you Dr. Weil!

In the latest issue of Dr. Andrew Weil's Self Healing newsletter, he has a nice article under the Mind and Body section that talks about "The Sound of Healing" of and by therapeutic musicians including the values of harp music. 

I am also reading a book entitled Healthy Living Centres, by Geoffrey Purves. Although the book is focused primarily on using Architecture for healing, there is a nice (albeit short) section on the therapeutic benefits of music. 

May the day come when the arts, especially music become as integral in hospitals as the more expected medical equipment, and that prescriptive music will be seen as essential to the overall healing of the body and the soul.
