I love Cindy Schumacher's article on harp therapy, "Playing in Angel Mode," in the last issue of the Maui Weekly. I had never heard of harp therapy. My thoughts were, oh I need to get a CD of harp music, but as I read through the article, it made it clear it was more than just about the music, such as the vibrations and the way the harpist matches the breathing, movements and emotions of someone they are playing for. How often do we put on music to help us match our relaxation/breathing to the music for healing and meditation rather than the other way around? I do hope it catches on in more and more places.
The article on "Centering Prayer: The Way Back Home" in the Dec. 22-28, 2011, issue by Schumacher was also very good.
Oh to have a local newspaper that prints articles like this!
As editor Debra Lordan said in her "Did I Say Thank You?" editorial in the last issue of 2011, "Cindy Schumacher's uplifting reports range from space science to spirituality. God has blessed her with talent and us with her interesting and inspiring stories."
That is so true! Mahalo for publishing her stories.
