Embrace of the Earth Conference 2016
Emerson Gale has been researching the combinatory applications of music therapies and wilderness therapies through the conduit of the Integral Ecology track within the Philosophy, Cosmology & Consciousness MA program at CIIS. His background especially consists of international youth education and intergenerational community organizing in the U.S., the U.K. and China. These experiences have honed his enthusiasm for developing rites of passage programs which meet our newfound psychological complexities of modern hyper-individuality. As a workshop assistant for CIIS Public Programs, Emerson has been mentored by a wide variety of contemporary sound healers who emphasize reconnecting humanity with our ecological roots through applied musicology. He frequently facilitates music improvisation gatherings as a way to help folks uncover their inherent creativity and weave the human fabric of the planet together.
