Stephanie, thanks for tracking this one down and continuing to -- I've often wondered about the potential for music in the mediation room and appreciate any insights you glean from the experts. I've taken the approach of asking clients if there's a type of music or particular artist they enjoy for chilling out, and sometimes, when there' a match in the answers, tune it in during sessions.

Stephanie. Thanks for linking to my post on Mozart and Music for mediation. I am keenly interested in this area. I recently saw a study in divorce that involved music. I will look for it to add to the discussion.


Music is really universal, no matter what color and race you are it relaxes us. Of course it is a matter of preferences, me when I'm stressed I like to listen to a soothing sound of nature.

Stephanie: I am a lawyer, mediator and classical pianist, and have been writing on this subject for the past year (not ready yet to publish but getting close!). thank you for your post, and I will be following up on the posts of Steve Mehta and others. I find personally that Mozart is both stimulating and calming to my mind, particularly works in the key of B-flat. I am delighted to hear that this subject is of interest to you and others, in diverse fields. I'd be interested in further writings of yours, please email "raderresolutions@gmail.com"
