Keynote: Sound, Psychology and the Tomatis Method Pierre Sollier

Alfred Tomatis is one of the twentieth century pioneers in the field of sound therapy. He taught that music and sounds are powerful forces that change perception, alter behavior, enhance learning and increase wellness. In fact, our way of listening to the world and to ourselves defines who we are, even though we are mostly unconscious of the process at work. The workshop will emphasize the different parameters leading to good listening; describe the impact of those parameters on child and adult development; and, finally, identify the listening psychological personality profiles that we carry within ourselves without being aware most of the time on their impact on our lives.
