  • "Music's medicine awaits your discovery," says Christine Stevens. "I invite you to release any doubts that you are musical, and to realize the power of music to nourish your body, mind, heart, and soul." With Music Medicine, she provides a thoroughly researched and practical guide for integrating the healing benefits of sound into your life-and discovering the extraordinary transformation that occurs when we liberate our own inner music.

    "Music can provide the support we need in life's challenging moments, and more importantly, music can become part of our daily routine for spirituality and health. Enjoy this powerful path for your own healing-through the joy, and the great peace, of music."
