Wavepaths & Fluence
Presenter: Mendel Kaelen, PhD
Fluence and Wavepaths have teamed up to create an exclusive Workshop for the Fluence community with Wavepaths Founder & CEO Mendel Kalen. Mendel is one of the most well-published researchers on the intersection of psychedelics and music, and holds the world's only PhD in this field. We are delighted to offer this learning opportunity which will also grant you early access to Wavepaths beta technology, the Music Guide, and community for therapists.
This workshop is designed for those working with music professionally and will explore the role and application of music in psychedelic therapy.
The combined use of music and psychedelics is ancient and universal, yet with the rise of psychedelic therapy, many questions are emerging around the function of music and how to apply it effectively within a range of therapeutic contexts.
The workshop will take a co-creative approach, combining research presentation, introspective music listening and group discussion.
Wavepaths evolved out of the first clinical trial into psilocybin for treatment-resistant depression at Imperial College London - and provides an approach to wellbeing that reconnects us with our innate capacities to heal through music, technology & psychedelic science.
Wavepaths Music Guide & Community
Wavepaths adaptive, generative music system allows therapists and psychedelic therapists to create truly person-centred therapeutic experiences with music for their clients.
Developed from peer-reviewed research on the use of music in psychedelic therapy, Wavepaths technology is designed for therapeutic work with PTSD, depression, end-of-life anxiety and other conditions, with or without a psychedelic.
Each experience is completely unique, composed of music from world-class artists and rendered in real-time by Wavepaths generative system.
By joining the workshop and accessing the Music Guide, you will be sent an invitation to join the Wavepaths community - created to support learning around the therapeutic use of music, and progress the field of music in therapy together.
Take a day trip with Mendel and discover the growing field of music in therapy, and how to apply music in a person-centered way.
