“Do you know that our soul is composed of harmony?”

- Leonardo da Vinci

"What makes us feel drawn to music 

is that our whole being is music: 

Our mind and body, 

the nature in which we live, 

the nature which has made us, 

all that is beneath and around us, 

it is all music.” 

- Hazrat Inyat Khan (Sufi Master) (1882-1927)

"Sound enters the healing equation from several directions: It may alter cellular functions through energetic effects; it may entrain biological systems to function more homeostatically; it may calm the mind and therefore the body; or it may have emotional effects, which influence neurotransmitters and neuropeptides, which in turn help to regulate the immune system--the healer within." 

- Mitchell Gaynor, M.D.
