Melanie’s Musical Mending

Singer, songwriter and musician, Melanie Edwards, recently launched Musical Mending Workshops which can be curated for any specific healing modality, be it collectively or individually.

The workshops help with memory, cognition, expression, as well as general well being and are just plain fun for participants. In addition, she leads workshops to help cope with grief, anxiety, depression and many more ailments by administering sonic techniques to relieve stress, help find inner peace and express authenticity. She often uses different instruments & singing skills with therapeutic mantra chanting in a form of call and response to activate relaxation, calm the mind and nourish the soul. The unity of voices act as a form of guided meditation, providing an outlet to purge bottled up emotions, thus opening the gates for healing vibrations. This is not about performing or being a professional singer, but rather a shared experience of collective sound healing in the present moment. Participants are free to join or simply observe in shared space, as well as bring their own mantras, words or poems to self reflect and express via musical mending.
