Dr. Zwig recently did a personal growth and concert event at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles. Read his thoughts on psychotherapy and music.
What a fabulous night. Music and psychotherapy are the same thing! It’s all just deep-sea diving. When I do therapy or give a workshop, write a song or play a show, I'm hunting for what's beneath surface, what's going on down there. There's something lurking just below consciousness in all of us - something unsaid, unacknowledged, unfelt, unknown - that’s influencing who we are and how we live our lives. Both music and personal growth work get you beyond your everyday state of mind and bring out what you’re feeling at a deeper level. With the right tools you can use these experiences to discover life solutions, healing, change, and growth.
