Gary Malkin – Presentations

“We are moving from a society built on the logical, linear, and computer-like capabilities of the Information Age to a new world in which “right brain” qualities – inventiveness, empathy, meaning, and big-picture capabilities – are more predominate to understand the contours of our times.”

– Daniel Pink

Harnessing the Power of Music for a More Compassionate World

Gary Malkin’s speaking engagements demonstrate music’s power to awaken our humanity and interconnectedness. He delivers a direct, whole-being experience to show how music and transformational media can support the linear rational mind to become more balanced, life-generating, and compassionate. In other words, he shares how these inspirational resources could help us cultivate heartfulness with mindfulness, resulting in wholeness.

This is urgent work because the “old normal,” a society driven more by independence than cooperation, more by self-reliance than connection, more by individual

attainment than community wellbeing – clearly doesn’t serve us anymore. This is urgent work because the “old normal,” a society driven more by independence than cooperation, more by self-reliance than connection, more by individual attainment than community wellbeing – clearly doesn’t serve us anymore. These “keynote performances” benefit institutions as much as individuals. Whether the focus is cultivating our full potential, improving the way we navigate significant life transitions, or creating a more balanced life, Malkin shares innovative experiential strategies for thriving during these extraordinary times of challenge and change.

Malkin’s keynotes are designed to:

  • Enhance emotional literacy by psycho-acoustically utilizing the universal language of emotion – music- to strengthen your ability to listen more effectively and multi-dimensionally.
  • Deepen your capacity to be fully present with empathy and compassion in all aspects of your life.
  • Reveal how hidden and unassimilated grief and loss can limit your capacity to perform to your full potential.
  • Teach ways to cultivate “radical gratitude” for life by practicing heart-centered mindfulness and discovering your authentic purpose.

All of Malkin’s presentations, webinars, workshops, and performances show how we can harness the generative power of music to help create more meaningful and successful lives- for you, your colleagues and your community.

“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration.”

Vibrational Intelligence™

Cultivating Heart-Centered Mindfulness Through the Power of Music

Of all our senses, hearing is one of the first to develop and, at the end of life, the last to go. Listening is part of our essential nature. Music, poetry, and other media have a vibrational effect on our bodies that can induce heightened states of being – states that tune and align our bodies, hearts, souls, and minds. This multi-dimensional awareness can be referred to as “heartfulness”, meaning a more heart-centered experience of the “now.” It is a fundamental yet often overlooked aspect of mindfulness. By cultivating this vibrational intelligence, we become more open to our humanity, which brings greater aliveness, meaning, compassion, and flow into all areas of our lives.

The SoulSong Process™

Birthing Your Emergent Self into Being Through the Power of Music

As we assess the changes that have been thrust upon us during these extraordinary times, many of us are feeling called to co-create more generative ways of engaging with our lives that reflect a deeper understanding of what really matters most.

For most of us, the old ways of operating revealed a fundamental imbalance between our minds and our hearts – with a disproportionate amount of “doing” and not much “being.” An overwhelming “busy-ness” in most of our lives pulled us away from our essential selves and the things we most cared about. Many of us started drifting away from the actions, behaviors and people that enhanced our lives with greater meaning, purpose, integrity, and compassion.

 Music, the universal language of human emotion, has an integrative power that can help you reclaim your essential self by connecting with your internal guidance and the universal forces that have always been available to you. The SoulSong Process harnesses the power of music by blending the transformative power of your deepest intention with the authenticity of your own voice – whether or not you think you can sing. The end result will illuminate your way to your unique “new normal”, aligned with your purpose and the things that matter most to you.

Ancient cultures all over the world have tapped into the transformational power of our voices. Whether you experience the process in a private session or in a group, The SoulSong Process will your activate wishes, prayers, and intentions for “your one, wild, precious life.” The SoulSong you come up with will help you reclaim your innocence, restore your self-confidence, awaken your gratitude for the preciousness of life, and realign yourself in healing and unforgettable ways.

When you engage in The Soulsong Process with pure intention and a willing heart, you’ll come home to the best version of yourself so you can, as Gandhi said, “become the change you wish to see in the world.”
