Liz Cooper’s aim in writing this book was to provide an accessible guide to sound healing for anyone who would like to learn more about it. It is aimed at the first-time explorer into the world of therapeutic sound, but will also give some ‘grist for the mill’ for anyone who already knows a bit about the subject and is hoping to deepen existing knowledge. As you journey through the book, you will discover more about the properties of sound and why we react to it in the way we do. You will discover whether your response is a result of our primal human programming, our life experience, or both.
The more you understand about your natural reactions to sound (and about ourselves through the lens of therapeutic sound), the more healing potential sound can have for us. Although this is not a ‘how-to’ book as such, it will touch on how to use sound and music as if they were ‘sonic vitamins’ that can improve health and wellbeing, and encourage personal development. This book provides information for those who are thinking about having a therapeutic sound treatment or looking for a group to join.
