Medicine Melodies: The Use of Music in Shamanic and Psychotherapeutic Practices

Public Programs and Performances WKS 109 1.00

This class explores the use of music to clear and free energetic constraints, and as a gateway for inner work and the therapeutic processes. Through guided sound-centered contemplative practices, drumming, and chanting, participants gather an original repertoire of medicine melodies to use in shamanic, psychotherapy, and healing sessions. Participants experience the emotional magic that comes from singing the Icaros of the Peruvian Amazon, and traditional indigenous music from India, Tibet, Tuva, Africa, Brazil, and beyond. Through a multimedia presentation and case studies, the class will examine the implementation of music to support sound healing and psychotherapy sessions, and the effect of rhythm entrainment in shamanic healing journeys.
