The transformative power of classical music (TED talk)

Regarding this inspiring TED talk on the transformative power of classical music, it is fascinating to hear and see how classical music has a universal appeal, and how everyone seems to have an innate ability to understand the musical notes, and it is just that some aren’t awakened to their ability yet.

Like the speaker said, “the conductor doesn’t make a sound. He depends, for his power, on his ability to make other people powerful. And that changed everything for me. It was totally life-changing. People in my orchestra said, “Ben, what happened?” That’s what happened. I realized my job was to awaken possibility in other people.”

I also love how such music can awaken possibility and evoke emotions, passions and memories in people that they probably never knew have resided in them all this while.

Introduction to sacred chanting by Cynthia Bourgeault

I learnt from the video that one of the things that the curriculum of wisdom school includes is a time of contemplative worship, which involves sacred chanting, at the beginning and end of each day.

I have noted that sacred chanting is universal as it is used in every spiritual tradition as a tool to unite two centres of learning – the centre of the heart and the centre of the emotions – with the vibrational intelligence of the body, and sound is composed of vibration and intention.

For example, the syllables and breath rhythms of gregorian chants have been shown to give nourishment to the spiritual bodies of the community.

It is also encouraging to know that chanting enables us to do self-exploration and work through the messages of pain and wounds we have been receiving by using our voice boldly, which opens up a whole new field of reconciliation and healing.

How music benefits the brain

Change your mood with music

“Science has now proven what music lovers already know, that listening to upbeat music can improve your mood. Listening and playing music reduces chronic stress by lowering the stress hormone cortisol. Music can make you feel more hopeful, powerful, and in control of your life. And listening to sad music has its benefits, too. If you are going through a tough time, listening to sad music is cathartic; it can help you get in touch with those emotions to help heal them.
