Vocal Medicine: Transformation through Sound


Reforge your heart with mantras! The power of sound through the voice is one of the most effective tools readily available to each of us for healing, empowerment and enlightenment. In Vocal Medicine, Kathleen Karlsen shares engaging stories of her personal journey with mantras, chanting, and kirtan, and provides a fascinating look at the ancient history and future potential of these practices.

Topics include mantras as formulas for psychological and emotional freedom; the role of chanting in supporting physical health; studies of the impact of singing on the brain; and the complementary use of visualization and sacred art. Vocal Medicine features thirty beautiful illustrations as well as the lyrics and scores for twenty-two chants emphasizing the Divine Feminine, selfless love, inner peace, and the attainment of personal victories.

Musician, artist, author and speaker Kathleen Karlsen is the owner of Living Arts Enterprises, a company dedicated to creating transformative experiences through merging spirituality and the creative arts. Karlsen has a BA in studio art from the College of William and Mary in Virginia and an MA in humanities from California State University. She shares her love of chants, mantras and sacred music through classes, workshops and kirtan.
