What You’ll Discover in These 7 Weeks
In this 7-week transformational intensive, Christine will guide you as you immerse yourself in the healing vibrations of music as medicine — to release stuck emotions and experience an inner tuning of your body, mind, heart, and soul.

Module 1: Healing Yourself With Music Medicine (March 3)

Immerse yourself in the rapture of music.
You know what you love. Go there.
— Sutra 18 from The Radiance Sutras by Dr. Lorin Roche
Modern science is demonstrating what Indigenous cultures practiced and knew; that sound is an essential tool for cultivating emotional release, relationship building, healing, and spirituality.

In this opening session, you’ll experience sounds aligned with the music medicine wheel and become aware of your own inner tuning with the four elements of rhythm, melody, harmony and silence — correlated with body, mind, heart, and soul.

The wheel is an ancient form of wholeness that appears as the mandala for Tibetan Buddhism, the medicine wheel for First Nations People, and the Celtic Tree of Life for Druidic cultures. We will experience the four elements of sound and how they correlate with nature’s elements — Earth (rhythm), Water (harmony), Fire (melody), and Air (silence).

In this session, you’ll:

Experience a sound bath for purification, release, and healing
Learn leading-edge science that documents how sound impacts the brain, the immune system, and the brain’s pleasure system
Feel how rhythm, flute, silence and song offer self-healing
Identify the instrument that is most resonant to your needs
Discover your personal medicinal music — and awaken your own inner music

Module 2: Rhythm, the Element of Earth, as Medicine for Your Body (March 10)

Beat this Drum of Love
When the bodily dust is gone,
My moon shines,
My spirit’s moon finds a clear sky
For age, O adored one,
I have been beating the drum of love for thee
(to the tune of) “Lo, my life depends on my dying.”
— Rumi
We are incubated in rhythm. Your mother’s heartbeat was your first concert in the womb. Rhythm reaches the inner heartbeat that is the drum within us all, a sound felt and heard from a time before birth. Rhythm is everyone’s homeland. Your body is wired for rhythm. You are a walking, talking, ticking, tocking polyrhythm. Rhythm calls the body to dance and the tribe to gather. The unstoppable drum plays, and the dance goes on.

The drum shows up when people are transforming because drumming is an evolutionary driver. The Hindu deity Shiva, lord of the dance, holds a drum. Scientific studies have shown that the impact of just one hour of drumming on the immune system can even reverse stress-related genomic codes.

In this session, you’ll:

Learn a drum massage for full-body healing
Explore the principle of entrainment — and how it operates in your body and sonic field
Learn to create rhythm using drums and body percussion
Explore the intersection of rhythm and silence for expansion and meditation
Invoke the element of Earth to stay in rhythm with the natural cycles

Module 3: Melody, the Element of Fire, as Medicine for Your Heart (March 17)

Strong or soft, wild or serene —
Wherever breath flows there is song…
Dancing spirals in the sanctuary of your heart…
You are the instrument breath is playing…
This is your school. Just you and infinity.
The texture of the Self is untamed freedom.
— Sutra 18 from The Radiance Sutras by Dr. Lorin Roche
The Lakota Nation carries a musical creation story that highlights the spiritual journey of melody. They say “First Born emerged from quivering mud to the rhythm of his own heart. Afterwards, man learned to use this rhythm for making songs. Certain ones discovered the true power in song; the power for making spiritual contact.”

From Krishna’s flute to the Native American flute, the magnetic energy of a serenade calls a longing heart into the chamber of the Beloved.

Like power animals, we all have power songs that strengthen, transform and inspire us. We are moved by melodies that pluck our heartstrings. We all have an innate songwriting instinct — childhood development studies show that all children make up songs around age two, without ever being taught. And in the principle of sonic alchemy, we can transmute emotions and literally take a sad song and make it better.

In this session, you’ll:

Experience a personal power song practice
Awaken your voice through the 4 keys of song
Discover the true nature of the pentatonic scale, where there are no wrong notes
Design your own way of greeting the day to anchor gratitude, peace, and harmony
Discover the bhakti of call-and-response chanting in kirtan style
Learn to turn a favorite poem into song in the Radiance Sutra Jam style

Module 4: Harmony, the Element of Water, as Medicine for Your Soul (March 24)

The true use of music is to become musical in one’s thoughts, words, and actions. One should be able to give the harmony for which the soul yearns and longs every moment. All tragedy in the world, in the individual and in the multitude, comes from lack of harmony, and harmony is best given by producing it in one’s own life.
— Hazrat Inayat Khan, The Mysticism of Music, Sound, and Word
Life wants to harmonize! Just as melody helps us find our individual voice, harmony helps us discover the power of togetherness — from me to we. We are all wired for resonance in the principle of sympathetic vibration, in which a guitar string on one instrument resonates an unstruck note on another instrument.

Science is now finding how “mirror neurons” demonstrate how much we are wired for connection. Worldwide studies of choral singers demonstrate that they experience greater health, better mood states, and a sense of belonging from singing together on a regular basis, which is something being embraced in the UK Ministry of Health’s “social prescribing.”

The Hindu deity Saraswati, goddess of audible arts, comes from a river and embodies the divine element of harmony and water. We literally flow together into duets with nature and friends as we experience the music bridge, transcending language barriers and leading to the heightened spiritual state of unity consciousness.

In this session, you’ll:

Discover what instruments reach your soul — and give you “soul bumps” like goose bumps
Learn a practice to harmonize with nature
Learn a practice to be in harmony with all of your relations
Experience the music bridge
Experience the thumb piano and strumstick — easy instruments of harmony
Create a global ensemble for transformation using zoom

Module 5: Silence, the Element of Air, as Medicine for Your Mind (March 31)

Come out of your silent song.
Come out of your cave of silence.
— Paramahansa Yogananda
It is said that before there is sound, there is silence. The Lakota Nation have a word for the silence that originates all sound: skan-skan wakan. The musical term “rest” is a metaphor for the powerful practice of resting, making space between the notes of your life. Silence gives music space to breathe, and gives listeners time to digest, upload, and integrate beauty.

The four types of musical silence help us track the space between sound and incorporate the principle of resting for integration and meditation. Ironically, a listening study showed that the space between music offered the most impact in terms of heart measures of relaxation. The Buddha best represents the element of stillness and air — the breath that creates meditation and mindfulness.

In this session, you’ll:

Learn how to play a singing bowl
Be given tips on practicing silence
Experience a guided meditation on listening to Nature and the element of air
Discover tools for cultivating inner silence — the neuroscience of quietude

Module 6: Inner Music, the Element of Ether, as Medicine for Your Spirit (April 7)

The true way of progressing through music is to evolve freely, to go forward, not caring what others think, and in this way, to harmonize the life of one’s soul, one’s surroundings, and one’s affairs.
— Hazrat Inayat Khan, The Mysticism of Music, Sound, and Word
St. Francis of Assisi said, “Make me an instrument.” Now that we’ve experienced the four elements of sound healing, we’ll step into the medicine wheel mandala for our personal healing and embodiment — becoming music. What is your pitch, your tempo, your vibration, your timbre? What is the music you are here to play? Your inner music is a place of rejuvenation, a “muse” of inspiration, helping you discover the creative force within you.

Scientific studies demonstrate two key principles for activating your inner music, based on MRI brain studies of jazz musicians. The first is permission, not perfection. The second is creativity; not complexity. We will explore the principle of resonance and how to bring your core into attunement — body, mind, heart, and soul.

In this session, you’ll:

Experience the healing benefits of the 4 elements of music within your inner world
Join a toning practice with the seed syllable OHM, the roar of joy that set the world in motion
Understand how to use the wheel for personal healing
Experience how it feels to sit with your own rhythm, melody, harmony, and silence
Discover the sounds of the inner realms
Be inspired to make your own personal sound-healing practice

Module 7: Eco-Music as Medicine for the World (April 14)

Some day, music will be the means of expressing universal religion.
— Hazrat Inayat Khan, The Music of Life
Music is the global language, a tool for planetary transformation ushering in a time of harmony in our new co-created world. Richard Rudd’s “Gene Keys” predicts three stages of humanity’s awakening sequence; from the Harmonic Convergence in the ’80s, to the second stage of the Melodic Resonance in 2012, to the upcoming stage known as the Rhythmic Symphony.

In the movie 10 Questions for the Dalai Lama, His Holiness is asked what we can do to create peace. With a huge smile on his face, the Dalai Lama says, “more music festivals.”

In this session, you’ll:

Discover the balance of inner and outer music
Establish your practice of becoming shamans of a new consciousness
Explore a menu of musical service ideas — knowing what is yours to do
Understand how to become the highest practitioners of sound healing
Discover ceremonies, songs, and rhythms for nature and the planet
