HOW HARP MUSIC CAN HELP YOU OR YOUR LOVED ONES
How harp music can help you or your loved ones
I have always wanted to be able to help people, and in our hurried and busy world, the best way that a harpist can do that is to help people relax.
Relaxing and focusing on what is important in life is something everyone should do. And I believe that gentle sound of the harp can help with this.
Earlier this year, I met a wonderful woman called Carin, and she had a plan to go to visit Al Ain, an oasis city in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, to do a guided sunset meditation. I was very happy to be able to take a day off from my usual work and join them with my small acoustic harp.
We found a serene spot in a park, in the shadow of Jebel Hafeet, one of the UAE’s highest mountains. While the group meditated, I played whatever music came out of me, with no scores or rules. While the sun was setting, the sky filled with beautiful colours which bathed the scenery around us in that perfect, pre-dusk light. Some local children started to gather around us, just quietly watching.
What it really made me realise is the power of music when it is simple and free. And it was a perfect way to spend a Friday – out of the busy city and amongst nature. Seeing the smiles on the relaxed faces and knowing that my harp is part of the reason for that was so rewarding.
Over the summer, I met with Carin again, this time in the Netherlands, and spent a day planning how we can bring her remarkable energy and my music together again. I am pleased to say we will have our first Harp Healing sessions in Dubai, on the Open Beach between the Burj Al Arab and the Palm Jumeirah, on 23rd and 26th November.
Those wishing to take can make a voluntary donation to Omnia Balance charities which fund schooling for children in Nepal, Gambia and the Philippines.
