Speaking again for your group/organization?!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIn the past blog posts, I mentioned the Virtual Harp Summit that I “attended,” including utilizing some of this information for the harp therapy community. It has been fun to create new presentations, trainings and retreats based on the 50+ hours of Summit learnings.

Even if I have already spoken to your group/organization, it might be time for a re-visit!! If you are interested, let’s connect!

Announcing a New Retreat!

imagesI am excited to announce a new retreat called “The Gift of Divine Anointing with Angelic Harp Vibrations.”

Co-facilitated with Catherine Mullaney, you will experience the gift of Divine Anointing – heartfelt prayer, meditation, healing and holy oil treatment with therapeutic harp vibrations – during this day-long retreat.

Each of the 12 oils of ancient Scripture unifies you with your Divine Creator and nature. Cathy and I will share information about each of the oils’ healing properties and practical applications. We will also discuss how these 12 oils can bring comfort and hope to you and your loved ones. The addition of my harp music orchestrates the vibrations and frequencies to intensify this healing experience, bringing peace and reverence to the day.

This retreat is a sacred time. Plan for profound blessings and insights, inner peace, beauty, love and soul nourishment. All love-based spiritual paths are invited to attend.

The price is $125/person with a limit of 30 people per retreat. We will be hosting retreats on May 7, July 16, September 17, October 22 and November 12. Come join us! Click here for more information.

Featuring “The Christmas Story”

This week we are letting you know about one of my Christmas CDs called “The Christmas Story.” It was recorded on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day in 2001. Since most Christmas music on the market is recorded in the summer (so it’s available in time for the holidays), I have always known that this CD had the holiday spirit infused in a very magical way.

The Daily OM listened to this CD and wrote a review. I am humbled by their beautiful words…

Review by Daily OM:

“Harpist Tami Briggs is a sound healer whose angelic, gentle playing bypasses all resistance to touch the root chord of the human soul. She honed her healing skill via personal appearances at hospitals and hospices, bringing her soothing sounds right up to the beds of those most in need. Bringing her knowledge of healing into the recording studio, Briggs makes harp music that’s simple, sweet, and deeply soothing. Embracing a less-is-more strategy, The Christmas Story interprets classic holiday standards into gentle solo-harp pieces, potent enough to hush a room of chatting relatives, relaxing enough to play in a child’s bedroom to help them fall asleep on Christmas Eve. And if you should find yourself alone for the holidays, Briggs becomes an angelic friend, her music a shimmering presence rooting you back to humanity.

Capturing the vibe of a live performance, The Christmas Story offers audio quality sharp enough to give the illusion that Briggs is playing right in the same room as you mull through your presents or nap on the couch in a sea of torn wrapping paper….The CD wraps up with the feeling of belonging to something larger than oneself, as Briggs’ gentle touch with the harp suffused even her frequent impassioned glissandos with warmth. More than just a bunch of carols played on the harp, Briggs skirts in and around the familiar melodies with the finesse of a jazz soloist, albeit one with no agenda of showing off chops, but rather of hitting all the right notes to warm the back of your neck and open your heart. Put on The Christmas Story when you need a gentle reminder of what the holidays are about: peace, love, and spiritual regeneration.”

Happy Thanksgiving!

A Happy Thanksgiving message from Tami Briggs (Musical Reflections’ founder) –

Thanksgiving is a favorite time to reflect on all of the things I’m grateful for.  I love to think about five things everyday. And for the year, I’m deeply grateful for:

  • Your continued support, as well as your feedback, ideas and encouragement.
  • All of the patients and families who allow me into their lives at a most vulnerable time of illness.
  • The healthcare staff at the numerous hospitals where I’ve had the opportunity to play for those they serve.
  • The opportunity to speak and play in front of thousands at healthcare conferences, sharing the special message of music and healing.
  • Sharing my music with thousands on my website, as well as through retail shops and stores – on CDs, downloads, DVDs and via the AMMM Machine.
  • The hundreds of people who follow me on Twitter (@HarpForHealing) and the wonderful people I am following. It is a window into people’s lives all over the world. I would never have this opportunity to connect without these unique technical programs.
  • Time to enjoy my parents this week, as well as prepare for the very busy month of December.

Have a lovely Thanksgiving!

Announcing a New CD!

Sometimes projects “fall into my lap” and this new CD is one of them!

Glenda Cedarleaf, Clinical Hypnotherapist and Licensed Psychotherapist, and I met in November 2010 at a women’s retreat. I was impressed with the quality of her work and most of all her very soothing voice on her guided imagery CDs. We stayed in touch and in mid-summer, she called to discuss internet marketing. We had a delightful conversation and at the end, I asked her if she would be interested in creating a guided imagery CD on menopause and mid-life in combination with my harp compositions. She said, “Yes!” and six weeks later, “A Guided Oasis for the Mid-Life Woman” was birthed!!

What makes this CD unique? As you listen to the sound clips, you’ll find Glenda’s voice is “like silk” and my harp compositions are recorded with the intent to take you to a deep, inner place of peace. The content focuses on the beauty and spirituality of this special, transformational time for mid-life women. Click here to order your copy…

The power of reflection…

I always love to have time to review what has transpired over the past months, especially reflecting on my “gigs.”

One of my favorites happened in late May in honor of Nurses Week for the HealthEast Healthcare System. Dr. Jean Watson, founder of Watson Caring Science Institute, was the featured speaker and what an awesome experience to be in her lovely presence for three days … wow!  Her work on caring science touches me deeply. Even though she focuses on nursing (and I’m not a nurse), her heart-felt message is so applicable to all of us. I’m still processing everything she said … more on this as the insights continue to “come in.”

To give Dr. Watson a break, I was invited to do a presentation, “Entraining Peace and Engaging Presence.”  While I always love to speak, sometimes the sessions are really special … and this was one of them! After Dr. Watson had created such a loving, sacred space, my job was easy. Our messages are so congruent … music can be one important component to creating a healing, caring environment … what an honor to “share the stage” with her.

Have harp, will travel!

One of my great joys is to take a road trip with my harp. Over the summer, I went to Madison and Milwaukee, WI, and Chicago, IL … it was a mix of concerts, conferences, retreats and educational sessions. One of the women I stayed with took me to a fun coffee shop and the photo above is how my drink was served to me – with a heart and flower!!  What a great example of being creative, caring about customers, adding beauty in a unique way and paying special attention to details. Loved every minute!!
