Musitations™: Soundful Living from the Heart - A Soulversation with Dr. Karen Olsen (E9)

I was thrilled when my good friend and musical colleague from my Music for People days asked me to be on her wonderful Sounds of Healing Podcast.  We decided to create a 'soulversation' for both of our podcasts as we dove into The Sounds of Mindful Living from the Heart which I have renamed Soundful Living from the Heart for our Musitations podcast episode 9! 

A particularly special, heartfelt part of this particularly soulversation is our sharing about our beloved teacher, friend, mentor and colleague Grammy winning cellist David Darling who passed away earlier this year. 

Here is a little more about Karen's amazing work and background: 

Dr. Olson uses her sound healing method to help people find peace, freedom and the power to live their dreams.  She has established herself as an authority in emotional and physical wellbeing. Her education, training and personal experience is the subject of her award-winning book, SoundPath: Using the Power of Sound and Silence for Health, Harmony and Happiness

Karen draws upon a rich background of degrees, certifications, strong faith and many gifts to be able to hold a space for Divinely guided energetic answers for her clients. She is a multi-award-winning, Billboard-topping musician and composer, best-selling author, international speaker, and bio-energetic practitioner.

Dr. Olson has advanced degrees from Juilliard, Yale, and NYU. She is a violist with eight CDs, has been on the top-10 of four Billboard charts and has won multiple awards. She is a member of The New York Pops with regular appearances at Carnegie Hall. She has shared the stage with superstars Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Liza Minelli, Roger Daltry of The Who, Sarah McLachlan and many many more. Her recent music video featuring Deepak Chopra and Michel Pascal is used to help give prisoners a sense of peace and is part of a program at the United Nations. Dr. Olson was also featured in the UN’s Global Bwell/BKind Challenge. Experience her music and programs so you can receive deep peace and answers for a path to freedom, peace, improved health and happiness.
