THE HEALING SOUND OF MUSIC

 

 

By Leon Thompson

December 13, 2015 (El Cajon) – Music heals the mind, body and spirit.  The healing power of music has been harnessed in Europe through a method called “Tune & Heal” by Dr. Barbara Romanowska who established the Sound Academy (Akademia Dzwieku) in Poland in 2004.  Writing as Barbara Angel, she is the author and teacher of the In-Depth Cellular Music Therapy Method on which the method is founded. 

A beautiful grand piano and an equally beautiful Barbara Angel greeted us to her home for a concert and healing co-sponsored by the Heartland Foundation last week.  There were about 40 of us.  On the chairs were tambourines, mariachis and drums.

Update June 14:  LMI's team of 50 trained local workers have been delayed departing for the Gulf because BP has failed to provide payment for their transportation.  Hanson has called for President Obama to set up an escrow fund with BP money to be used to expedite cleanup of the spill.

June 5, 2010 (San Diego) – “This is an unprecedented oil    spill,” Lakeside resident Mark Hanson, chief executive officer of Leadership Management International in San Diego, told a crowd of eager job applicants assembled at Urban League in San Diego yesterday. “Oil is now landing on one of the most pristine coasts in Florida and satellite images show a reddish glob of goop in the ocean that’s the size of several states.” 

 

Hanson, who also heads up Heartland Coalition, publisher of East County Magazine, led the successful effort for LMI to obtain a contract from Progressive Environmental Services (PES) of Virginia to provide hazardous materials training locally and ultimately send hundred of San Diego-area workers to Gulf coast states to assist in cleaning up oil from beaches, coastal wetlands, waterways and wildlife.
