     Brain Pickings, as regular readers of this blog know, is one of my favorite resources. It is true treasure chest of great reads and thoughtful analyses. Today’s post adds to the large number of music-centered essays shared here. As my research continues on my book in progress Shaping Lives, Transforming Communities: Creative Expression in the Dance of Life, it is becoming ever clearer that a book is needed on music as a powerful influence on healing and wellness, not only by itself but also in conjunction with other arts.

Read…Reflect…Share Here, There, and Everywhere!

“The effect of music is so very much more powerful and penetrating than is that of the other arts, for these others speak only of the shadow, but music of the essence.”
