Music and rhythm find their way into the secret places of the soul. ? Plato
The Greek philosopher Pythagoras was among the first to recognize the healing powers of music. Milton Erickson, the musician of mind, body and soul, was the first to structure communication for greatest effect so that clients could change many aspects of their life, not merely their presenting symptoms. Just as the cadence of voice and patterns of speech form the music of Ericksonian communication, repetition and rhythm create the emergence of a trance state in music, film, and in poetry. The utilization of all three within a hypnotherapy model functions as a catalyst accentuating the nuances of seeding, guiding associations, shifting perceptions, and inspiring change. In a combination of Ericksonian concepts gift-wrapped in landscapes of music, poetry, and film participants will master how to interrupt and transform symptomatic states to create memorable and mindful resilience. The latest research will examine the role of epigenetics, the link between melody and the mind that suggests that listening to and playing music alters how our brains, and therefore our bodies, function.
