A lecture-demonstration on how sound was used as medicine in ancient times in India, in biblical times in Israel, as well as in the Ottoman Turkish empire. An analysis of the musical modes of the Mid East and some mention of the Indian ragas as powerful tools of the healers of the past. A live music demonstration how these modes modulate our feelings, emotions, and sense of light and darkness.
Based on Yuval Ron’s collaborations with neuro-scientists Andrew Goodman and Mark Robert Goodman (fellows of the Center for Spirituality and the Mind in Penn State U and authors of How God Changes Your Brain), this talk includes references to some of the latest research in Music Therapy and Neuro-sciecne, mostly when such research confirms earlier mystical traditions.
