with Music and Sound: Fact, Fantasy or Fiction?
Campbell, best-selling author of The Mozart Effect® and Musician,
Physician for Times to Come, has spent the last 30 years researching
the effects of sound and music on learning, health and how music
influences our lives. In this comprehensive lecture, Mr. Campbell
will dispel myths and discuss cutting edge research by the scientific
community about the use of music as a healing therapy. Mr. Campbell
will also provide an overview of the current practical applications
of music in clinical settings for mental and physical disorders,
injuries and pre- and post-operative care, and provide guidance
for care providers and family members who are interested in incorporating
sound and choosing appropriate music for home based self-care.
Mr. Campbell will also address the important questions of how
music and science can interface. Is the medical community asking
the right questions about music? How can musicians best respond
to scientific query?
Neurophysiology of Sound and Mystical Experience
Kenyon is a psychotherapist, music therapist, author of Brainstates
and other books, producer of many sound therapy CD's, and founder
of Acoustic Brain Research (ABR). He has developed a system of
"catalytic sound" using his nearly four octave range voice to
assist others in entering deeply altered states of awareness.
In his presentation "The Neurophysiology of Sound and Mystical
Experience", Tom will share some of the discoveries in neuroscience
that demonstrate the effectiveness of pure sound to alter brain
processing. In addition, he will discuss some of the ancient mystical
usages of sound and relate them to non-dominant hemispheric brain
functioning. Finally, he will guide participants into a direct
experience of the mystical effects of sound via ancient mantras.
This will be a most fascinating discussion that spans the gap
between science and mysticism.
the Voices: A Powerful Tonic to Integrate the Brain with Heart
Nakkach, MA, MMT, is an award-winning composer, teacher, author,
psychotherapist, and internationally renowned singer. A world-wide
accredited scholar in cross-cultural music-therapy training,
and a pioneer in the field of music and transformation of
consciousness, she is the founder-director of the Vox Mundi
Project. In this presentation, Silvia will share experiences
from her extensive travels in the Brazilian Amazon and India,
were she participated in rituals that employ chanting to induce
healing, she will also offer examples of her own innovated
repertoire of vocal and music-centered techniques which have
become landmarks in the field of music therapy, sound healing,
and community development through music. Silvia will expand
our understanding of creative imagination, devotion, and energy
awareness, as the common source of scientific Western, Eastern,
and shamanic sound healing. Challenging our archetypal images
of “The Singer”, we will experience “singing to disappear”,
an invitation to relive the connection between liberating
the music of the voice and spiritual practice.
Sound Healing in the 21st Century
this intensive workshop on how today, cutting edge scientific
sound technology combined with ancient knowledge of the use of
sound is bringing us to the brink of the ability to balance the
central nervous system and entrain brainwaves and states of consciousness
for advanced healing, stress reduction, mega-learning, expanded
meditation and emotional release. Advanced research equipment
such as EEG brainmapping, Heart Rate Variability, Biophoton counting
chambers, stress monitors and others are making it possible to
precisely measure the effects of sound frequency vibration healing.
Acoustic Brainwave entrainment techniques are making it possible
to boost memory/learning, emotional release, ecstatic meditation
states and inner healing. Hold on to your mind as we explore the
Healing Power of Sound - from the sounds of the elements of the
periodic table to NASA Space Sounds from the outer planets. Dr.
Thompson is the
Founder/Director: Center for Neuroacoustic Research.
Through Multidimensional Music
Jacotte Chollet presents this experiential
workshop about healing inner fragmentation, restoring energetic
coherence, promoting unification of the Self through access to
altered states. After co-producing and directing over 50 documentary
films around the world, Jacotte turned to "sound" as a vehicle
for energy expansion and consciousness exploration. She creates
"Multidimensional Music"(MMD) a vibrational healing music which
connects to deep Self, restores "conscious" mind/body connection,
structures fragmented energy and activates cellular communication.
Biological research has documented positive impact of MMD music
on blood cells. Jacotte gives workshop and transformational lectures
at international conferences about consciousness, energy and healing,
and she has produced 7 CD's.
Your Voice Help to Identify, Decloak and Eradicate Resistant Pathogens?
Edwards, Director of Sound Health, Inc. and Signature Sound Works
of Albany, Ohio, is the pioneer in the field human BioAcoustics.
She has demonstrated that the voice is a unique frequency representation
of the structural and biochemical aspects of the body. Pathogens
such as Epstein Barr have been suspected of causing reactions
such as Chronic Fatigue, lupus and influenza. It is estimated
that these invading, resistant pathogens will kill millions if
a solution is not found. Using your voice, the Frequency Equivalents
for these pathogens can be identified. This workshop will demonstrate
how low frequency analog sound may be used to identify and counter
the harmful effects of resistant pathogens present in all of us.
The Music - Brain Connection
Harvey is internationally known as an authority in music for special
needs individuals, music and the brain, and music and learning,
and has provided training and spoken at conferences in 22 countries,
as well as throughout the United States. In this workshop he presents
important information on the connection between music and the
brain, including: the benefits of music on learning, relaxation
facilitated by music, how all intelligences are touched by music,
how the immune system is enhanced by music, and the way in which
our neurological system is nurtured by music, as well as scientific
data on the body's neuro-chemical response to music.
and Sound: Frequency Medicine for the 21st Century
Leeds is a producer, sound researcher, and author of The Power
of Sound and Sonic Alchemy. He specializes in application-specific
soundtracks, collaborating with experts in health, neurodevelopment,
and psychology. In this workshop, Joshua demonstrates psychoacoustic
production techniques used in recordings for hospitals, clinics,
classrooms, and homes. He will explore the basics of resonance
(tone), entrainment (rhythm), binaural beat frequencies, and Tomatis-oriented
filtration/gating. This workshop will be of particular interest
to musicians, educators, and healthcare professionals.
Music of the the Spheres
(Randy) Masters, composer, recording artist, publisher and sacred
sciences designer, offers a workshop entitled "The Music of the
Spheres/The Universal Song". The title refers to the spheres of
consciousness that contain the universal codes or blueprints of
creation for our universe. These codes contain the musical, mathematical,
geometrical formulas and archetypical patterns that govern and
influence our formative universe and its behavior and development.
In this world of form, everything is said to have its own unique
