7pm doors at 6:30pm
Presented by: Christine McClarnon
Dr. Tuttle and his wife, Madeleine, share insights into the art of meditative improvisations, including techniques they use to bring about spiritually and intuitively guided musical expressions within the moment, and how this approach to music can bring a powerful healing force to our lives.
The workshop begins with a discussion of music as a healing modality from ancient times cross‐culturally right up to the present day, with the American Medical Association recently recognizing the therapeutic effects of music.
Using the piano, Dr. Tuttle will demonstrate different rhythms, melodies, and harmonies along with exercises. He will also lead exercises with music and meditative listening, and some exercises with music and letting images be evoked and then discussed.
The music generally is loved by people as being uplifting, healing and inspiring.
