Healing Harp with Vivian Sarubbi and Lynda Jardine

Healing Harp with Vivian Sarubbi and Lynda Jardine

Wednesday, June 14, 6-7:30 p.m.

Vivian Sarubbi will discuss the therapeutic benefits of harp music. You will learn about the ancient healing legacy of the harp, the science behind the effects of sound vibrations, and experience live therapeutic harp demonstrations yourself. Be prepared to rest into the sound vibrations of the healing harp as Lynda and Vivian demonstrate some of the unique tones, melodies and resonance of therapeutic music.

Research shows that certain music can help to soothe anxiety, regulate blood pressure, oxygen levels and reduce stress. Music intervention in the ICU on patients on ventilator support resulted in a greater reduction in anxiety. And these patients received 38% fewer doses of sedative medications than those without music. Therapeutic harp music is played in hospitals around the world from the neonatal ICU to Hospice programs.

Vivian Sarubbi, RN, BSN, PHN, is a Certified Clinical Musician who uses live therapeutic harp music in the hospital, healthcare facilities, and homes to create a calm, relaxing environment in which people can feel a sense of safety and wholeness. Therapeutic harp music is based on the physics of sound and vibration and in the growing body of knowledge of neurophysiology. Neurophysiology explores how the body processes sounds and responds to the direct vibrations from an instrument.

This event is part of The Next Chapter: Designing Your Ideal Life lecture series sponsored by the Friends of the Library and the Monterey Public Library Endowment Committee. Adults are invited to attend. Admission is free, and reservations are required. Sign up at the Help Desk, or contact Sirie Thongchua at (831) 646-5632 or thongchu@monterey.org.
