Engaging musical encounters provide a unique opportunity for both group synergy and individuation. Touching on neurological processes and theories of creativity, this workshop will explore music’s role in therapy as a means of centering, physiological regulation, self-empowerment through mind-heart-body integration and community solidarity. Experiential exercises will be offered to incorporate music and sound more deeply into one’s healing profession and self-care practices. No formal musical skills required. Simple percussion instruments will be provided and participants are welcome to bring their own instruments.
