Exploring the Sounds of Life with John Beaulieu

Please share what you do in 10-15 words: I teach integrative medicine with an emphasis in sound healing.

Why do you do what you do? I have worked in the healing arts and musical arts for 46 years. I do it because this is my calling in life. It is what I was born to do.

What are you currently fascinated by in your work? I am interested in the neuroscience of sound and how different sounds affect our neural network and enhance neuroplasticity.

How did you come to your path? Any aha moments or key teachers? I began playing the piano at 3 years old. When I was 20, I visited a psychiatric hospital as part of a college psychology class. I just knew I wanted to learn more and work with this type of patient. It did not take me long to integrate music with psychology.

What book(s) are you currently reading? I am always reading the Bhagavad Gita. I have four different translations on my Kindle. I have been reading it for many years and always discover something new. I am always reading research papers. For fun I read James Rollin’s novels.

Have you been to the Yoga Retreat before? I have taught at the Sivananda Ashram Yoga Retreat for more than 10 years. I come back to teach because of the open diversity environment in which all spiritual paths are honored.
