Primary Application: Hospice Care:
The New Birth Spiritual Transitions composition is designed to soothe and support those involved in hospice and palliative care and bring peace and solace to the patient. Working through the final stages of life can bring a host of issues as patients, caregivers, and loved ones search for meaning and grapple with grief. Hospice Music Therapy can help.
"The stages of grief and loss are: denial and isolation, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance"
Patients, families, and caregivers involved in the hospice experience all deal directly with this grieving process and New Birth is an audio aid to assist all involved through these transitional periods of life.
Beginning with the idea of birth, the music moves the listener through different emotional phases and beckons him to continually move forward and upward towards a state of hopeful living. The interludes and tempos create a mood of reverence and reflection. An atmosphere of peace and acceptance is created. The reverent music of New Birth is a beautiful reminder that we are not alone. Hospice Music Therapy is the means by which listeners are assisted through the grieving process.
Additional Applications: Trauma or Addiction Recovery or Times of Deep Change
The New Birth CD provides the deep musical experience of moving people emotionally through their grief. We also recommend its use for those times of when real and focused change is desired, such as during the recovery phase of addiction or traumatic events. New Birth is charged with powerful, emotional sounds that deepens one's desire and ability to live unstuck. The music of New Birth has softened hearts and has been an instrument in helping those who have felt emotionally stuck to move forward towards a hopeful outcome.
"The name New Birth is descriptive of this deep musical experience. The New Birth CD is designed to promote a newness of life, regardless of the direction of your grief."
The beautiful music of New Birth enhances one's spiritual senses and, as it promotes feelings of reverence, helps one connect spiritually and emotionally with one's higher sources of power. New Birth can be a powerful tool for anyone as our lives are universally, in their highest form, one of desired upward movement and purposeful living. New Birth is a powerful tool as one focuses on deep change, reconstructive healing, and real forgiveness.
"Through the whole process [the New Birth - Hope and Healing soundtrack] you can hear an entire lifetime. It is absolutely phenomenal the quality and the artistry Wayne has put into this music. Through the music, you can hear this persons lifetime. It gives a person a chance to remember the good times to experience the different phases of their lives and gives them permission, at the very end, to not have to hold on. So, if someone is not ready, they don't have to experience that. But when they are ready, [the relaxing music] really tends to help them pass more peacefully into the other realm."
