Join me as we explore how the body is a biological musical instrument that is capable of forming musical ratios with nature in order to heal the self and others on all levels of being – physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

The human body literally runs on rhythm. Our bodies form embryologically in perfect proportional harmony with the musical ratios of nature. From this music transpires the physiological rhythms of the body, also in perfect harmonies with those of nature.

Our ancient ancestors, in fact, lived by the rhythms of nature. They followed the wisdom of the animals, the movement and positions of stars and planets, weather patterns and tides. They were able to sense environmental changes, animal behavior and the movement of the elements as guidance on how to thrive as communities. All ancient cultures of which we know used sound, rhythm and music as a way to unite as communities, express victories, mourn losses. Simply put, our ancient ancestors were in tune with nature.

Rhythm is in our blood… it is our blood. Our bodies are biological musical instruments that literally live and persist by the rhythms of blood pumping, breathing, cerebrospinal fluid fluctuation, sleep-wake cycles, reproductive and hormone release patterns, and so much more… in timing with the rhythms of the earth, the sun, the moon and all of the planets.

With all of the chaos and fear currently permeating human culture, there has never been a better time for this class. During a time of disease and war, when opinionated ego conscious minds cannot reach agreement between individual communities, religions, organizations and nations, something different must be employed.

Time has tested our species’ ability to resolve conflict amongst each other with reason. The human species is now evolving on the level of consciousness. We must transition to solving conflict on the level of vibration.

Vibration is the universal language. At the finest level of construction everything exists as atoms which consist of subatomic particles. And subatomic particles consist almost entirely of energy. At the quantum level of existence everything is the same – it is energy… force, motion, vibration. Therefore, at the level of vibration everything can “talk” to everything else.

Nature is the gold standard of vibration. In fact, the most stable musical ratios are found ubiquitously throughout nature in the form of materialized matter, numbers of things, patterns of growth, earthly and body physiological cycles, animal behavior and migration patterns, and so much more.

It is the turning away from nature that has been humanity’s biggest mistake in the pursuit of health and happiness. We need only to turn back to nature, the gold standard of rhythm, to remember and re-enter the cycles of the cosmos that align us on a direct path to freedom – a higher quality of health, happiness and life experience.



What you will learn
How the physiological rhythms of the human body are in musical harmony with those of nature

How this applies to the Four Tenets of Osteopathy

How the human body is a biological sound healing instrument

The anatomy and physiology of the respiratory tract, larynx and vocal cords

Speech Sound – it’s more than you’ve ever thought – these concepts introduce the next class in this series of classes on sound and vibration, “The Osteopathy of Speech.”©

How anatomical proportions throughout the human body are in musical ratio to each other.

We will also explore

The musical placement of the joints of the body and how they create music in movement

More of the main physiological rhythms of the human body, such as the fluctuation of cerebrospinal fluid, neuronal impulse firing,
hormone release cycles and more.

How human brain wave frequency states are in tune with nature and how to use them for healing and deliberate creation of life experience

Interval Entrainment™ – you will learn how to create healing effects via the natural phenomenon of entertainment, with physical body movements and the brainwave frequency states of consciousness. 

And so much more…..

Shawn Marie Higgins, DO is a physician, author, lecturer and sound healer with a private practice in the Portland Maine area. She began her sound healing journey many years ago with world renowned sound healer John Beaulieu, ND, PhD and has since continued sound studies, teachings and healings.

The Maine Osteopathic Association is accredited by the American Osteopathic Association to provide osteopathic continuing medical education for physicians.

The Maine Osteopathic Association designates this program for a maximum of 12 AOA Category 1-A credits and will report CME and specialty credits commensurate with the extent of the physician’s participation in this activity.
