He’s working to give a voice to the voiceless, but maybe not in the way that you might think. Listen as holistic healer and musician Eric Majeski discusses stepping into the unknown and giving voice to what’s deepest inside each one of us.

  • Difference between hard and soft addictions and why some are more stigmatized than others 
  • Dr Gabor Mate teaches us not to ask “why the addiction?” but instead to ask, “why the pain?”

  • Learn what a “Musical Intervention” is and its role in healing 
  • Using music as a way of grieving 
  • To be voiceless is painful. To not be in full expression is painful.
  • The concept of harm reduction in healing 
  • Step into the unknown – it’s really not as our minds anticipate it to be 
  • As human beings, we’re not supposed to stop learning, and why it’s so easy to forget
