#21: East Forest — Music and the Muse as Medicine for Our Becoming

Episode description and synopsis


In today’s episode, we have the honour of connecting with East Forest, hearing some of his heartfelt stories and practices for listening to the muse, and partnering with sound as a healing agent on his own path home.


As someone who I’ve admired and sat in meditation or ceremony with many times in the past 2 years, it was an absolute gift to dive into live-dialogue with East. We explore the ancient role of music and sound in welcoming the invisible aspects of our fleshly lives, how building a relationship with the muse supports us in our own healing, as well as hear some about his own rituals and practices for remaining the vessel for sound that he is – and we all are!


This one is full. You could jot down many things on pen and paper, or, you could trust that your body will remember – it is all simply reminders after all!
