Grace Notes is a book about Tami Briggs’ most profound and deeply spiritual experiences playing the harp at the hospital and hospice bedside. Having facilitated and witnessed hundreds of harp therapy "treatments," Tami’s anecdotal stories detail many dramatic accounts of using harp music as a complementary care modality. An inspirational journey into the world of comfort care, the book poignantly tells of the harp’s healing properties. The stories, selected because of their powerful impact, illustrate music’s role in the healing process. Ms. Briggs weaves her personal experiences and clinical training together to: • Define harp therapy. • Explain the harp’s unique healing qualities. • Discuss research on the effectiveness of music and its benefits. • Show how music triggers memories and elicits emotional responses. • Suggest musical applications to optimize your well-being. • Describe how the harp can be used to create sacred space, facilitating a healing experience. • Detail how the harp can bring intimacy, depth, and tenderness to the sacred experience of dying. An enclosed CD highlights the music that is referred to throughout Grace Notes.
