Sounding the Inner Landscape: Music as Medicine by Kay Gardner (pdf version)

Price: $7.50
Sound has the capacity to affect us on all levels - physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. This work ties together a number of traditions, both scientific and metaphysical, to explore the beneficient force of music. Drawing upon research into mathematics, chemistry, physics and ancient cultures, Kay Gardner explaines the healing effects of different instruments, keys and musical forms. She explains which keys stimulate specific areas of the body that govern the immune system, excite the passions, or soothe the soul. She also interweaves traditions as far-flung as Native American beliefs and the Chinese meridian system, the properties of Chakras (from the Sanskrit word meaning "wheel") and their correspondences with Western nervous and endocrine systems.

Kay Gardner is a teacher, performer and composer of harmonious blends of voice and instrument. With the belief that music is healing, she asks all to strive for good health and wellness through the melodies that envelope us. Kay feels that we can expand and intensify our spirituality and attunement by exploring and developing our musicality and sense of rhythm. Touting musicians as the healers of all time, Sounding the Inner Landscape illustrates how spiritual growth heightens musical sense, and conversely, how musical (sonoral) development elevates your spiritual strength. It prescribes feeling the tones and sounds as they interact with and affect your emotional being, and opening yourself up to experience a rejuvenation. The aura of this book wraps you in a symphony of enlightening images. -- From The WomanSource Catalog & Review: Tools for Connecting the Community for Women
The most healing instrument of all is your own voice. -C.W. Child

In relating to other people in a harmonious way, tone of voice is all-important, for it is this tone which conveys feelings. The voice of command is different from the voice of servitude; the voice of arrogance is different from the voice of beneficence; the voice of gentle caring is different from the voice of cruelty....It is very important to be aware of your tone of voice at all times so that it may encourage harmony....Your own inner harmony, that between body and soul, is determined by how you treat your body in relationship to your soul.
