On Music and Healing

The use of music as a healing approach can be traced all the way back to the origins of the human species. Prehistoric healers across cultures used specific drumming patterns to induce mental states such as trance and relaxation. Music used in a healing context is evident in biblical scriptures and historical writings of ancient civilizations including those in the Americas, Egypt, China, India, Greece and Rome.

A Picky Culture

For better or for worse, the digital age has brought us immediate access to seemingly infinite amounts of information and access to a gargantuan amount of goods and services.

The Lost Art of Tolerating Frustration

The Lost Art of Tolerating Frustration

Zen Buddhist monks train for years in order to master the art of seeing the world without distortions created by their own mind, as well as aligning their body and mind. I have seen a growing trend in the west of incorporating some of these Zen-Buddhism ideas in the form of mindfulness-based practices.
