Using universal spiritual virtues, intention, imagination and the ancient technology of sound and indigenous music, Martin Klabunde takes the reader on an inner journey to discover the spiritual meaning of music, and how music connects us to the infinite wisdom of the universe, our inner being, our cosmic memory and the sacred wisdom of the Master within each of us. The book combines ancient, divine and cosmic knowledge around sound, music, culture, community, awareness, perception, energy, spirituality, ritual and ceremony. Martin includes a case study of the Bamana people of West Africa combined with his own spiritual experiences to provide a context for these new and ancient spiritual concepts.
Music is Medicine contributes to the field of music, energy and spirituality by highlighting the practical implications of utilizing music to shift our perceptions and expand our awareness. Through an intimate sharing of his own personal transformations and mind-opening encounters with indigenous cultures, Martin provides a candid and compelling account of the unique power of music--a power that remains unclaimed and unexplored in the majority of our modern society. With the ultimate goal of reminding us of a potent spiritual tool that cultivates a direct connection to our own Master Within, Music is Medicine offers a refreshing yet timeless perspective where each of us becomes the phenomena of healing sounds as we give up our needs to understand music and the world in a specific framework and open ourselves to unlimited possibilities.
