Nakkach. And the process of contacting others that I have known over my long years, and some that I have only heard about began. Out of everyone I contacted, only 2 could not answer the call, due to other commitments. The next step was to contact presenters who lived in the Boston area, because I thought that the conference should also include a ‘local feel’ as well. This is something that many sound conferences lack, the inclusion of local talent, that is not known outside their area. But the main criteria was to connect with teachers that have devoted their lives to this subject. The only reason that sound therapy or healing is known today, is because of them, and I needed to offer the leaders in their respective fields, because this is how students learn. Education should be fun, and I feel that I brought together the originals, and not the photocopies.


The next step was to piece this whole thing together in a way that would create flow and rhythm, and be congruent from one presenter to another, topic to subject, and then live performance. Building from a global perspective, moving through history, and then ending in the present, which was Professor Douglas Koch’s introduction to his program that he will offer this Fall at Curry College. So from our beginning in the Mid East, weaving through Cymatics, the Himalayas, and instrument to instrument, theory and subject, the 2014 International Sound Therapy Conference may have actually exceeded expectations. And from my seat as Chairperson for this astounding event, I want to thank everyone involved, for making this a successful and truly meaningful program.


I would like to extend additional thanks to Jacinda Samos who spent long hours in the ISTCR office, Associated Arts for website, Hector Rome for financial and legal support, Michele Michener who handled registration, Stephanie Woods, Dima Klim, and Samuel Steward who worked on site to keep everything running smoothly and everybody happy and content, and the staff at Rolling Ridge Retreat and Conference Center.
