Welcome to Sound Therapy, exploring the Art of the Mind. This program will focus on issues of mental wellness, creative expression and personal sustainability. We hope to expand knowledge, open up possibilities, and be inspired by those that share their personal stories and expressions. We believe healthy expression through art, whether, music, poetry, writing or performing, is a means for survival.
Through Sound Therapy we strive to be open to all perspectives so that you can be empowered in your own personal journeys. We aim to speak with the different participants and stakeholders in Mental Wellness and Disability, including, Clients, Advocates, Professionals, and Artists. We will explore alternative models for healing and sustaining the mind.
Through this project we want to help eliminate stigmas that are associated with Mental Health and other Disabilities. We advocate for rights of the individual in the world we live in and the human capacity for all, given the right opportunity. We feel that the Arts has a significant role to play as a mechanism for a healthy mind in today’s society, we believe in the notion that ‘Art is a Means for Survival’ (Yoko Ono – 2001).
Sound Therapy Radio and this associated website explores the Art and Mind in a number of different ways.
‘Art of the Mind’ – Show Broadcasts
Sound Therapy Radio – ‘Art of the Mind’ broadcasts on a bi-weekly basis in a spoken word and music format. If you cannot hear it live, an archived broadcast can be heard on this website. We take a client, peer support approach to our content, however you do not have to be in the mental health system to benefit. We hope those not formally diagnosed can become educated about various issues that may apply to them. Conversely if you know of someone who can benefit from this information, please pass it on. If you have an issue that you believe we should cover in a future episode, please contact us. Not all ideas may make it on air, however we will consider each carefully. Sound Therapy Radio episodes are on every second Mondays @ 7pm, (1st, 3rd and 5th Monday)
