  • 10,000 Sing Beethoven’s Ode to Joy

    If you haven’t been feeling much joy lately, I hope this post helps you. It isn’t really directly related to neurofeedback. but I’m posting this YouTube video – 10,000 Sing Beethoven’s Ode to Joy – because…

    • It’s beautiful.
    • It’s uplifting.
    • Music and its effects on us are a fascinating aspect of our complex and amazing brains.
    • The video wonderfully demonstrates the possibilities in group energy and connection.

    If you are reading this and you have been depressed, did listening help you? It’s likely that it did. Music has that power.

    Joy is part of the spectrum of emotions we are supposed to have. Depression can take that away… please act to get it back. I have seen neurofeedback be very helpful with depression. Counseling, medications, aerobics, nutritional changes, time in nature, can also all help.

    I wonder how many people around the world are singing, or playing or listening to Beethoven’s Ode to Joy right now? I bet the number far exceeds 10,000.
