Welcome to H.A.R.P.

This H.A.R.P. forum was inspired by the aspirations and touching stories that my students have shared with me of their amazing experiences with the harp and its healing qualities.
You will hear from them about the broad applications of harp music . Therapeutic benefits are received by not only those who listen, but also by those who play this heavenly instrument.

People of all ages seem to come to the harp primarily for these reasons:

Stress reduction
Learning to the play the instrument
Spiritual connection
Harp Therapy
Service to others

If you are new to the harp world, or are an experienced harper, you are invited to ask questions or share with others.

You might wish to consider some of the following:

*What has been your relationship with your harp - has it changed your life in anyway?
*What type of harp do you play?
*How long have you been playing?
*What goals do you have with the harp?
*How do you see the harp as being a healing agent in our modern world, much like it was in ancient times?
*How do you envision the harp being of service to others?

Inspiring insights from 8 yr old harper Lydia:

You can do anything on
the harp from seeing a flying
saucer to a big huge tarp.

Let go of your worries
and have fun
lastly make your camera blurry
By all those strings
If your in a hurry
you need to slow down time
Just play the harp

I am done
you are not having fun
what can I do? but play
the harp.

Photos of HarpSpirits around the world

HarpSpirit, Kathy Temple and her green lap harp, "Arden" playing at the Fields of the Wood bible theme park in N. Carolina.

Kathy is a gifted writer, and expresses here a beautiful description of what the harp exemplifies. "Our best visions are those 'seen' through Life's heart, soul, and vibrations. The harp is not merely an instrument, it is a spiraling personal pilgrimage to the secret self via the loving blessings of Divinity. " You can read more of her touching harp stories and poems in our Harpsicle Harper's Diary.
