“Medicine for the Soul” soothes at Barking Legs
We turn to music to dance until we drop, pour out our heartbreak and celebrate all kinds of things, but music also literally has the power to heal. You can find out how at Barking Legs on Thursday night, as Purple Sky Healing Arts presents “Medicine for the Soul” with Mark Holland and Pati Pellerito.
Sit back in your seat at the newly revamped BLT as “rich sonic vibrations alter space, mind, and time. The sound and music awaken cellular memory, activating and attuning energy centers in the body, infusing your entire being with healing energy,” the organizers promise. Holland plays a variety of flutes; “the ultra-low flutes draw you deeply into your breath,” says Purple Sky. Pellerito will play two Paiste Planetary Gongs, “tuned to frequencies of the cosmos.” One is called “Nibiru, the gong of transformation” and the other, “Chiron, the wounded healer.”
If nothing else, you’ll appreciate the special skills of the musicians in a great space.
