Reevaluating Music as an Overlooked Resource: What History and Neuroscience Teaches us

Online • Los Angeles • September 24, 2020

Music as a practice: to savor, to listen, to remember that what we share is greater than our differences.

Thursday, September 24, 2020 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM PDT


Every civilization we know of has had some kind of a musical culture. Healers and Shamans are known to have used music in their practice. The therapeutic effect of music has been used and studied since the ancient civilizations. Some say Neanderthals sang. Music is innately human. Communal experience of music synchronizes our pulse, breaths, and brainwaves. It induces oxytocin, the so-called “love hormone” creating a sense of bonding we love as social animals. Music can help us manage our stress and pain, reducing average number of hospital stays and prescription of pain medications. How can we harvest this power to help us with our everyday challenges? How can we use it for team-building at our work place? We’ll look at historical examples, and some of the latest studies, and discuss it together.
