Patricia Warming: Music - Therapy for the Soul
"I feel that from now on music should be an essential part of every analysis. This reaches the deep archetypal material that we can only sometimes reach in our analytical work with patients. This is most remarkable."
-- Jung's comment following his visit with music therapist, Margaret Tilly.
In 1950 Jung wrote: "Music expresses in sounds what fantasies and visions express in visual images."
We will look at sound and music as unquenchable expressions of the human soul. We will note the use of sound and music throughout various cultures, healing and religious traditions. Vibrational energy can be seen as an analogue of Jung's concept of libido as psychic energy. The field of Cymatics (the acoustic field where the archetypal nature of sound can be clearly seen) will be viewed through some video clips showing the effect of sound on matter. Jung has said how helpful it is to find the particular images which lie behind the emotions. In the same way music can slip beneath our conscious reality to tap what is going on below the surface.
