From Behind the Harp:Music in End of Life Care
by Jane Franz, CM-Th and Sandy LaForge, CM-Th is a journey into the field of music-thanatology: what it is, and how it uses live harp and voice to bring beauty, peace and compassion to the dying and their loved ones. Find out how these musician/clinicians help patients find relief from pain, agitation, respiratory and spiritual distress, while families and caregivers are often lifted out of fear or emotional fatigue. Over 50 stories of music vigils offer insight into what it means to die and to be with the dying, and how this music can serve as a guide through the process for all involved. This book will inspire caregivers and those interested in the field of death and dying, as well as all those caring for loved ones nearing the end of life.
Journey with us into the Soul’s terrain. Using Celtic harp, voice, cello, guitar, and drum, Jeri, Claudia and their guest musicians follow the Soul’s desire to explore the many faces of the Divine through loss and grief, the healing medicine of love, light, sleep, beauty, nature, peace, and joy.
Luminous Grace features exquisite Celtic and original melodies, sacred chant, and a duet of the Brahms lullaby beautifully offered by music-thanatologists Jeri Howe, Claudia Walker, Roberta Rudy, and Silé Harriss.
