Leveraging Our Innate Wiring for Music as an Agent of Healing
Copyright :


Attunement to music is so widely shared that the inability to enjoy music of any kind is recognized as a neurological condition (amusia). This workshop will explore the features of music and rhythm that stimulate social and biological processes involved in psychological healing. Musical rhythms, brainwave entrainment and neurochemicals will be discussed in relation to music’s evolutionary role as a “social glue,” demonstrated to increase feelings of trust and interpersonal connection. Participants will learn about how music can double as a cognitive “flexibility primer” and as a portal into experiences of transcendence and awe.
