Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!

Hi, my name is D.C. music therapy is new to me I know when I listen to gospel music I feel much better. Recently, I read an article about Hado water and its healing effects when you place a glass of water near speakers while playing soothing music then you later drink the water it supposed to help you feel better. Anyway, people are reading this stuff. I want to explore more.

Its been a great week, we linked forces with Nordoff Robbins music therapy charity to launch a new fundraising campaign on their behalf. We launch the initiative later this month with some great competition prizes including the opportunity to WIN Cd production and organic jazz Tshirts + a bunch of other stuff. Stay in touch for details. Blessings to all Andanda

I found it was very important to have the proper repertoire for each group I played for at the hospitals. I only took my classical guitar and for oncology I would play jazz standards and classical music.
For Geri psyke I would sing old standards and would be amazed how they knew every lyric to One For My Baby! For the Adult Psyke ward where it was not only mental illness but drug related patients I would play Beatles, blues, and classic rock tunes that had a meaning to them. I wouldn't sing Hotel California even though I heard many requests, it was too dark as far as the lyrics go.
For the surgery waiting area I would play standards and classical music.
I had a lot of success doing it and found out what really reached these people.
There were times that speaking Greek also helped in the Geri Psyke ward to which I was very thankful to be used in that way too as amn interperter and calm them down by speaking in their tongue. you'd be amazed how them hearing Greek would calm them down plus really caring for them i the process. this was a privilege!

the main thing to remember is to play for your audience not play what you want to play. it's for them, we must give from our hearts with love. Music is a healer.

Peace, Teddy P

I forgot to add in a video I put together VERY quickly after one of our gigs. Just to give a taste of the what the East/west thing is like:
Comment by Yogi McCaw on May 23, 2010 at 6:19pm
I have been doing some East/West fusion gigs with keyboards, tablas, and flute/sax. It is fabulous meditation music. We call it the Yoginis navya Soundz/Ambient East-West Grooves. We have been regulars at a classy upscale Indian restaurant in Seattle. They LOVE this music there. We are based in Seattle.
If you think it would be good to bring this music to your place, let us know. Meditation gatherings, yoga centers, wellness centers - this is the right music for people who want to explore inner space with music.
