Music as Medicine, Dr. Deforia Lane

I continue to be inspired by reading Music as Medicine by Dr. Deforia Lane, who recently came to the Pacific Northwest to speak about her work.  "The tool I use, music, is powerful indeed" she says.  "who can understand the way it moves in the head, the heart, or someone's soul?  And who can explain the weight of the emotions that are carried on a song:  grief, hope, joy, love, sorrow, maybe just one, maybe one and another, maybe all the bittersweet stirrings of what it means to be alive?"
