San Francisco, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) April 02, 2011
San Francisco harpist and founder of “Harps for Hearts,” Lisa Lynne, will present her music and story during the 22nd Annual Society for the Arts in Healthcare Conference on Friday, April 15 at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport in Burlingame. The conference, which will showcase best practices, model programs, and cutting-edge research in the field of arts in healthcare, will be conducted from April 13-16 at the same location.
"I was at this conference in Canada a few years back,” said Lynne. “It's truly a gathering of hundreds of generous gifted people doing tireless work. They come together to share ideas about how important creativity is to the human soul, especially in times of challenge. We learn from each other and from the experts during workshops and the keynote speakers. The inspiration that you feel around these special people is contagious and renewing. These people should all have halos and wings!"
The well-known composer and owner of her own record label "Lavender Sky Music" will share the story of her interactions with a Columbine High School student following the tragedy. She will explain how she was inspired to make her mission in life to empower those with health or physical challenges through the therapeutic joys of making music. Lisa loads her van with 17 Celtic and lap harps to share her music and interactive experience in hospitals, schools, cancer centers and healing retreats.
“Lisa Lynne’s story is remarkable and the way she tells it brings both laughter and wisdom,” said Lynn Joseph, Ph.D., Keynote Speaker, Psychologist and Author. “She is truly an inspiring speaker as well as a brilliant Celtic harpist who can get anyone to play the harp.”
In addition to performing on April 15, she will also have a booth in the exhibitor hall on April 14 and 15. Founded in 1991, the Society for the Arts in Healthcare is dedicated to advancing the arts as integral to healthcare by demonstrating the valuable role the arts play in the healing process, advocating for the integration of the arts into the environment and delivery of care within healthcare facilities, and assisting in the professional development and management of arts programming for healthcare populations, and providing resources and education opportunities to arts in healthcare professionals.
