Journey Into Wholeness
This year brought so many changes to my life. Moving back to the U.S was a big change, and getting used to a new life in Nebraska has not been easy.
My dog, Mutsu, has been an inspiration to me. He left Aomori, where he was born, flew on an airplane and crossed the country from Washington state to Nebraska by car. Yet, he doesn’t seem stressed at all. He is only concerned about how to get attention and treats.
Next year I’ll start a new podcast, Bliss. On this show I’ll invite guests from healthcare and social welfare communities to discuss various topics ranging from music therapy to spirituality. In order to fund the project I’ve started a crowdfunding campaign and so far reached 100% of my goal.
Also, I’m getting ready for a seminar in Tokyo in Feb. Over the years I’ve received many questions about how to incorporate music in healthcare from people who are not music therapists. My hope is to share the benefits and challenges of utilizing recorded/live music as well as musician volunteers in such a setting.
I hope you’ve had a wonderful year. Wishing you a peaceful holiday season!
Follow your bliss.
If you do follow your bliss,
you put yourself on a kind of track
that has been there all the while waiting for you,
and the life you ought to be living
is the one you are living.
When you can see that,
you begin to meet people
who are in the field of your bliss,
and they open the doors to you.
I say, follow your bliss and don’t be afraid,
and doors will open
where you didn’t know they were going to be.
If you follow your bliss,
doors will open for you that wouldn’t have opened for anyone else.
