April is Self-Care Awareness Month at!

When we think of spiritual wellness, many things may come to mind. Spirituality can mean different things to each of us. It is a huge topic! I can’t even touch the full scope of the topic, so I’ve chosen to use the most basic definition, which is:


~ of, relating to, or affecting the human spirit or soul as opposed to material or physical things.

Self-Care Month: Spiritual Wellness

This week, we want to nurture your human spirit and your soul. You are invited to sit back, relax, and consciously listen to the following music-assisted imagery experience. Take a moment, breathe, and dedicate the next 14 minutes to your spiritual well being.

  1. Thanks so much for this. It took me a while to get to this but I’m so glad I took the time to do the imagery experience. I’m relaxed and ready for my week. It brought to mind some issues I’d like to work through and that’s ok. I’m better for having done this.

  2. Cheryl,

    I’m so glad that you enjoyed the imagery and I’m also thankful that you took the time to write your thoughts here in the comment section. Our hope was that this exercise would create a moment for music therapists to take time to reflect and relax.

    It sounds like some issues came up for you during the imagery. I love that you went on to say “that’s ok.” Your words reminded me that the mind has a powerful ability for self-healing and whatever comes up is “O.K.” It is all part of the process. Thank you again for your thoughtful and uplifting post!
