2016: New horizons

I made a little promise to myself to blog more frequently this year. There's been quite a lot going on the past few years as I completed the Harp for Healing program and began the International Harp Therapy Program. I also completed my 200-hour yoga teacher training with Hart Lazer.
All this wonderful education has given me more thoughts to share than ever before, and I've written a couple of articles for the Room 217 Foundation and the Harp Therapy Journal that I'll be posting here as soon as they are published.
I have continued to teach workshops around Montreal on sacred sound, healing music, chant, yoga, massage, relaxation and crystal therapy, both solo and with extraordinary collaborators. I've been using Facebook/e-mail to share these events rather than posting them to the blog because I found this to be more expeditious in terms of reaching people. Please get in touch if you'd like to be on the invite list.
Finally, I have been doing bedside work in palliative care for nearly a year now, at Le Phare Enfants et Familles, an extraordinary children's palliative care centre in Montréal's Angus Shops neighbourhood, and at CHUM Hôtel-Dieu, a historic Catholic hospital between the Plateau and downtown. Each institution and its wonderful staff and patients deserves a blog post of its own, and I'm starting off this new year feeling very blessed to be fulfilling my longtime dream of using music to soothe anxiety and relieve suffering.
