MEE-Music Exercising Emotions Concert CD
Editorial Review: The “MEE Concert” has effectively reduced anxiety, fear, depression, stress and emotional trauma for individuals struggling with medical conditions, family or work challenges and the stress brought on by war and terrorism. The “MEE Concert” was developed over a two-year period as Judith performed individual pieces with a variety of instrumental arrangements. Select arrangements produced positive audience response within a sequenced format that evolved into the USE MEE Model. The cover photo, shot in January of 1991, is especially significant. Judith began daily meditations to resolve Desert Storm after climbing a hill and looking into a valley of army tanks. People across the country silently joined her as she played the violin during meditation. The “MEE Concert” premiered two months later with violin, piano, synthesizers, bass and drums performing a variety of music styles, including classical, jazz/funk, ragtime and world styles. Research findings suggest seminar participants, cancer patients and university subjects experienced a significant reduction in “unsettledness” after listening to the “MEE Concert.” A cardiac study is underway as a result of a heart patient’s ability to reduce stress and increase exercise with the use of this recording.
