More Thoughts on Zoom…

Zoom LogoIn the last blog post, I discussed using Zoom for presentations/performances. And frankly, my somewhat negative experiences using it for those purposes.

On a more positive note, where I have seen Zoom work very well:

  • My therapeutic harp lessons – I have been working with students who already play the harp, but are interested in learning more about playing at the hospital and hospice bedside.
  • Virtual harp therapy – I wrote about this in an earlier blog. I am excited to offer this as a virtual healing modality and the opportunities are endless … around the globe!

So, CoVid-19 has blessed us with many changes and using technology, specifically Zoom, in some beautiful, unique ways. I am grateful to be here at this amazing time in our human evolution! If you are interested in additional information for either of these, I look forward to connecting.

Harp on Zoom!

Zoom LogoEveryone’s on Zoom … I am, too! And here’s “my take” on it. After doing numerous live events over the past 21+ years, I wasn’t sure how I would like performing on Zoom.

I did two harp group events during the initial lock-down of CoVid-19. While the actual virtual events went OK, the hardest part was ending in a quiet house (my living room) without any audience feedback. So, the quiet after presentations/events has been a big adjustment!

That said, I’ve recently invested in upgrading my system and am excited about offering many different types of Zoom sessions! Interested? Let’s connect! I look forward to working together …

A Beautiful Destination

What is Harp TherapyA couple months ago, I spoke to the new International Harp Therapy students. In preparation for our call, the host asked me to speak about how I came to the harp, how I got interested in harp therapy and how I currently “structure” my harp therapy business. It was an honor to be present with this group!

During my presentation, I talked about how I had been going through a challenging time at age 30, when I gave myself harp lessons to soothe my soul. (This is how I came to the harp.) And then when I took the harp therapy classes, I hated hospitals to the extent that I passed out every time I entered a hospital building! After I talked about both of these situations on the conference call, the host said to me, “You have really overcome a lot to be able to do harp therapy work!”

This was very affirming and validating, and it reminded me of this quote from an unknown source, “Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations.” I feel blessed to have worked through lots of issues and situations to get to do the beautiful work that I am called to. Indeed, it has been an interesting journey to get to this beautiful destination!

Presentation to the International Harp Therapy Community 

Nov 2014Since 2006, I have played the harp at the hospital bedside in tandem with a Healing Touch instructor/practitioner. We have experienced some amazing results working together! And now we have research to prove it…

For a couple of years, we have been talking about presenting our work together. And now we have that opportunity! In mid-March, we will be at the International Harp Therapy conference in San Diego, CA. As a graduate in the first class of this program, it is an honor to speak to my colleagues. And San Diego in mid-March will be a welcome break from the cold Minnesota winter! Can’t wait…

Happy New Year!

2015During the past year, I worked with intentions and did several presentations about them. As I defined intentions, I mentioned they are similar to setting a New Year’s resolution. And now, we’re in the “vibration” of the New Year. Did you set New Year’s resolutions and if so, what are they? These intentions are important for the upcoming year. When we “ground them in,” we increase the likelihood of manifesting and creating our heart’s desires.

Happy New Year … and here’s to your manifestations happenin’!

Appreciating your continued support…

SupportFor the past 15 years (yes, really!), I’ve been blessed to do the work that I am most passionate about, as well as know it’s my deepest purpose for being on the planet at this time. I am most grateful … and I couldn’t do it without your continued support. Thank you!

Here’s a partial list:

  • To all the contacts who say “Yes, let’s do a presentation!” including Iowa Parkinson’s, Summer Institute of Holistic Health and Healing, Mayo Clinic’s Holistic Wellness, Annual Family Caregiver Appreciation, Couples Celebrating Life, Summer Eve of Music, Bacon Club, Day for Cancer Care Providers and many others. Special moments … special memories!
  • To those who ordered “Holiday Blessings” card/CD. Anytime I introduce a new idea/CD, it always feels like a risk. I am humbled by many people who always say “YES!” to my ideas!
  • This past year, I have been much more intentional on having a presence on Facebook, LinkedInTwitter and YouTube. I am amazed at the number of friends, connections, followers … be sure to join in the fun if you haven’t already!
  • To my wonderful team of BioMat distributors. I have loved getting to know you, as well as watching you grow and evolve as you share this wonderful product to help so many others. WOW!
  • For my customers who order CDs and downloads every month to bring relaxation, comfort, peace and calm to your families and those you serve.

I’m deeply passionate about spreading healing, hope and relaxation. Let me know if you have contacts that you think I need to connect with … it would be my pleasure!

Practice Tip

I was recently doing a presentation and at the end, someone asked me how much I practice. (I jokingly said, “Are you asking because you think I need more practice?!”)

The answer is “It depends … on what I’m working on and/or if I’m memorizing the song.”

And a practice tip (and it also works for memorization):  practice 10-15 minutes in the morning and 10-15 minutes in the evening. When I do this, I am amazed at how quickly I learn/memorize a piece of music. I believe it’s because the music goes into the sub-conscious and I am “processing” it throughout the day and during the night. It is a simple technique that I find works really well … try it!
