Gary Malkin's SoulSong Process™ harnesses the power of music to rebuild a “New Normal” in your lives.
As we assess the changes that have been thrust upon us during the Coronavirus pandemic, many of us are feeling called to co-create a ‘new normal’, a better way of leading, working, and engaging that reflects a deeper understanding of what really matters in our lives.
Clearly, the old ways of operating reflected a fundamental imbalance between our minds and our hearts – lots of “doing” and not much of “being”, allowing us to use our ‘busy-ness” and overwhelm to incrementally drift away from our essential selves. As a result, many people are acknowledging that they lost sight of what was really needed to work and live together with greater meaning, purpose, integrity and compassion.
When integrating the universal power of human emotion – music – we organically become more willing to connect with forces that are larger than what can be explained with our linear minds. We can then directly receive deep, heart-centered wisdom which can illuminate that which wants to be awakened, expressed, and witnessed. This process is a way to gain clarity about what the new normal might be for you.
The SoulSong Process is offered both for individuals and teams. It echoes many ancient cultures’ traditions that have harnessed the primordial power of our voices to vibrationally activate wishes, prayers, and intentions into an embodied reality. It has the power to restore self-confidence, awaken gratitude and recalibrate one’s being in the most healing and unforgettable ways.
When you engage in this creative musical process with a willing heart, the best version of yourselves will emerge – so you can, as Gandhi once said, “become the change you wish to see in the world.”
