I was blessed to be able to partake again this year in the 15th Annual Fall Conference of the NH Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and the NH Pain Initiative. The conference featured some very fine Keynote speakers; Ira Byock, MD and Jeanne S. Twohig, MPA amongst them, as well as wealth of lecturers in the field. My part in the conference was to provide beautiful music for comfort, healing and relaxation.
As a Sound Healer/Therapeutic musician I always embrace the moments I get to share some of the more profound music and songs that I have in my repertoire; the music that works best "in service" as opposed to as "entertainment". Sometimes, in a situation such as a conference, rather than at bedside, the two types of music sometimes overlap, the line is somewhat blurred. In any case, for me this is an opportunity to play some of the songs I truly love and feel perhaps deeper in my heart and soul whereas in the entertainment venues they would simply put people to sleep!
I look forward to being able to play "in service" more often. I feel that I am rewarded just by the opportunity and experience as much as those listening feel comforted by my beautiful music
