The Traveler: Healing Journeys Through Music
It’s been said that music has charms to tame the savage beast. Well, as one cancer patient said to our host Cathy DeWitt, it also can calm ”the savage disease.” Join Cathy and her guests as they share meaningful moments when music has helped them through times of crisis, upheaval, and transformation. Meet professionals who have seen the powerful effect of music as a therapeutic interventionin health care settings, schools, and memory care facilities. Hear the amazing stories from caregivers, patients, and students who have experienced these musical transformations.
Joining Cathy will be many musicians who are part of the Positive Music movement, and they will describe their own personal experiences with music, and how it helped them in their lives. You will also be immersed in these musical moments through live and recorded performances on the show. Write in and tell us about your own meaningful music—we may share your healing journey on the air!
