When woven with mindfulness, meditation, and relaxation, music can be the common thread that promotes healing, recovery, purpose, and balance. The harp is one of the earliest musical stringed instruments, and its vibrations can carry you to a safe, profound space; a journey within and beyond the self. Jean, a classically trained musician and composer, studied Celtic harp in Ireland and pipe organ in Germany. She is a Certified Clinical Musician through Harp for Healing, LLC's Clinical Musician Certification Program. Her training creates an intersection of music and awareness to offer peace and healing. Jean takes her harp gifts to the bedside with hospice and hospitals, as well as yoga and massage sessions for a relaxing, transformative experience. Her music (including her meditative CDs with Mona Terry), along with her training as a board certified chaplain, provides therapeutic support to those seeking wholeness and healing from grief, trauma, injustice, illness, and stress.
Jean’s harp music creates an enchanting rhythm that provides focus and grounding to a yoga practice. She breathes energy into her original pieces, using her strings to help you link your breath and body, intensifying the substance of the movement and deepening the relaxation poses,
creating a space for change and progress.
Harp music, when combined with massage, affects cognitive, emotional, and spiritual awakenings. Playing tableside, Jean works in conjunction with your massage therapist to create an atmosphere of comfort, relieving stress, trauma and pain, and offering soothing vibrations of renewing music.
For those suffering the loss of a loved one, facing family or personal trauma, overcoming addiction, suffering from an illness, or simply seeking hope and meaning, Jean’s meditative music brings relaxation and helps relieve tension by restoring balance to the mind, body, and spirit in an atmosphere that cultivates reflection and healing.
Working with the Barnabas Horse Foundation near Murrell’s Inlet, South Carolina, Jean developed EASE sessions, Equine Assisted Spiritual Encounters, for both individuals and groups, with and without music. During these sessions participants may receive healing music, while engaging with horses whose reactions invite humans to greater authenticity and congruency.
