Overview

SEVERAL YEARS AGO, Cynthia Snodgrass set out to do a research project to investigate the use of music in spiritual cultures other than her own. What she found was a dazzling array of sacred sounds and spiritual practices that ended up changing her life.

The Sonic Thread is a delightful telling of that journey. The author shares extensive research and stories that reveal sound to be a universal and transformational spiritual path. From the transcendent flight of Gregorian chant, to the mesmerizing shaman's drum, to ecstatic Sufi trance, music and sound affect consciousness, providing pathways to original wisdom.

Within these lovely, insightful narratives are exercises and information that help us use sound and music to deepen our spirituality, expand global awareness, and open up to spiritual traditions beyond our own
