Reaching For The Gold, September 10, 2013
This show draws connections between aging and creativity. Actually, people can become creative - attuned to sounds and shapes - as they age. And that can happen even if they are living with dementia. It is simply a matter of bringing these hidden talents out into the open.
The two guests on this program - Jill Mattson and Sean Caulfield - are past experts at meeting this challenge. Sean works with Artists for Alzheimer's, taking elders and their care partners on museum tours. Often, once they are nudged in this direction, elders can be very articulate in relating their reactions to paintings.
Jill, meanwhile, has long delved into a field that is both ancient and very modern; sounds as a healing modality. By her accounting, everything is vibration. So, sounds can set into balance portions of our body which have been pushed out of balance.
Jill Mattson has long made a study of sounds and their most basic components. She reasons that everything is vibrations, motions, noting that mystics as well as physicists and others who are attuned to the material world agree with that assessment. And because of this fact sounds which are vibrations can have a great influence on our lives.
Jill Mattson is an author, artist, musician and widely recognized expert and composer in the emerging field of Sound Healing. She has written four books and produced six CD's that combine intricate Sound Healing techniques with her original Award winning musical compositions (Deep Wave Beauty CD – Best New Age CD of 2012 – Silver Award). The CD's consist of intriguing, magical tracks using ancient & modern techniques - with sound energy & special healing frequencies to achieve profound benefits.
Her cutting edge music includes: Frequencies of Flower Essences (emotional catharsis & virtue building), Celestial music with Tones from ancient Egypt and Celestial Bodies, Solfeggio/Reverse Solfeggio & Fibonacci tones, Sound Based Beauty Treatments, Binaural Beats & Meditative Music, Countering Negative Astrological Energies, Ascended Master & and Angelic Channeled Energies, Ancient Languages of Light and more! These multilayered, multidimensional, deep soulful works will uplift your heart - while offering a myriad of benefits.

A publishing journalist and a college instructor Harriet finds that these two careers have much in common as they both demand honing communication skills every day. Harriet instructs her students almost exclusively online and her writing is published in print and over the web. Times change but the need to speak to your audience by being concise, yet intriguing, is key.
