Pro-active interaction with sound to stimulate innate emotional awareness
Soundscape therapy offers a way for anybody to ‘make’ music and reap the emotional rewards of actively participating in creating sound.
The Lydianstream system links ‘individuality’ with ‘group’. While building a deeper understanding of our own individual uniqueness, we learn how to effectively interact and cope with those around us. This is practised and understood through activities and exercises based in sound. We often refer to this as ‘proactive mindfulness through musical sound’.
By working with the Lydian MindHarp™ anybody can experience the joy of playing with musical sound music and quickly access pathways to reducing stress and generally enhancing our sense of well being.
We are all born with a ‘music centre’ in our brain: Neural pathways that react almost exclusively to the sound of music. A recent empirical study at M.I.T (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) confirmed this fact in 2015 .The new paper “takes a very innovative approach and is of great importance,” said Josef Rauschecker, director of the Laboratory of Integrative Neuroscience and Cognition at Georgetown University.
So it seems that our brain defines a sound as either environmental; cars, machine noises, water dripping etc. or as ‘musical’.
When we actively participate in creating ‘musical’ sound we trigger emotional responses impacting positively on our stress levels and feeling of positive goodwill towards others and ourselves.
Workshops or One-to-Ones
Soundscape therapy combines these understandings with mindfulness and meditation to create pro-active mindfulness.
