As Dr Jung emphasized in the first chapter of his Red Book, it is imperative that we each find our own way. “…my path is not your path.” He has called this journey: individuation. It involves going deeply within, a process which can be facilitated by the power of music.
Participants will experience and explore the transformative power of the sacred 7 tones and choose 2 that are most significant for them. These tones are chanted by the group and woven into an improvisation on the violin, spontaneously evoking images and insight. These paint a surprisingly full picture of the psyche, setting the scene for healing, release and creative expression.
“…Music reaches the deep archetypal material that we can only sometimes reach in our analytical work with patients “ – Jung exclaimed after his first music therapy session. Musical training is not necessary. Please bring your own lunch, and paper and colours to the workshop.

In her early years Mary Masselos had a successful career as a concert violinist. She played in orchestras and as a soloist in Australia, Italy, the United States, England and Holland. It was during this time that she became aware of the power of individual tones – of their ability to touch spiritual depths – and made the decision to train as a music therapist. She completed a Diploma in Music Therapy at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, London, followed by a Certificate in Psychodynamic Counseling at the Westminster Pastoral Foundation, London (of which Dr Carl Jung was the first patron).vvv Concurrently she worked with Jungian analysts Joel Ryce-Menuhin of London and Aniela Jaffé of Zürich. Both analysts encouraged her to continue with and further develop her method of using the seven tones as a diagnostic and healing tool. Mary has given workshops in New York, London and throughout Australia, but for now she practises full time in Sydney, where she continues to hold workshops aimed at helping people open themselves to the transformative energy embedded in the spectrum of sound.
