The sweet territory of silence

In many shamanic societies, if you came to a medicine person complaining of being disheartened, dispirited, or depressed, they would ask one of four questions. When did you stop dancing? When did you stop singing? When did you stop being enchanted by stories? When did you stop finding comfort in the sweet territory of silence?

The Way I See It #267

“Music can lift us out of depression

or move us to tears – it is a remedy,

a tonic, orange juice for the ear.

But for many of my neurological

patients, music is even more – it

can provide access, even when no

medication can, to movement, to

speech, to life. For them, music is

not a luxury, but a necessity.
