This project considers music's relationship to humanity. A perspective from the informational basis of academic music therapy is interwoven with reflective theory about music's healing capacity. The writer's music healing experiences as a professional musician and apprentice to the music healing tradition of Indigenous South (Quechua) and Central (Huichol) America guide the reflective theory. In this way, the writer desires to integrate the Western academic and South/Central indigenous American understandings of music therapy. Diverse genres are employed, including poetry, narrative, and academic styles to invoke and relate different perspectives of the same understanding of music's therapeutic and curative potential.
