What Participants are saying:
“Very quickly into the workshop, Mary established a collaborative, safe, and supportive environment in which I felt free to play, able to experiment, and ready to grow.” – Princeton workshop participant

“ I was effortlessly led by Mary Knysh to make music with a group of people at a higher level than I thought possible. We sang, moved and played instruments forming a true community of sound. And finally, I felt like a Music Together Teacher, filled with the joy of making music, excited to go back and share that with my families and hopefully help awaken their own joy at making music themselves.” – Music Together Teacher

Gary Malkin is a multiple Emmy, CLIO, and ASCAP award-winning composer, producer and recording artist dedicated to making a difference in the world by creating music-driven media and events that inspire the heart and catalyze individual and social healing. He is a dynamic presenter, passionately speaking and performing on the vital role music and the media can serve as a catalyst for greater emotional and spiritual coherence throughout our world’s institutions.

Gary is the co-creator of the internationally acclaimed book and CD set, Graceful Passages: A Companion for Living and Dying, produced by his life-enhancing media production company, Wisdom of the World. Wisdom of the World is dedicated to producing innovative ways to access and experience spoken messages from the world’s known and unknown visionaries so that we might live our lives and face our transitions with more mindfulness and compassion. He is the founder, along with co-author Michael Stillwater, of a non-profit organization, Companion Arts, dedicated to addressing the rampant ‘burn out’ in the caregiver community, while integrating the values of a tolerant spirituality into our health care systems through provider-focused educational programs and resources called Care for the Journey.

In June of 2005, he and Stillwater received the first annual Elisabeth Kubler-Ross Award for significant contribution to the field of End of Life, sharing the award with internationally known speakers and authors, Frank Ostaseski of the Meta institute, and Joan Halifax of the Upaya Institute, both nationally respected educational institutions for end of life professionals.

He has given keynotes, presentations, and performances for the Harvard Medical School/George Washington Institute for Spirituality and Health’s’ Conference on Spirituality and Health, Healing Journeys: Cancer as a Turning Point Conferences; Scripps Clinic, National Hospice and Palliative Care Association, Association for Professional Chaplains, Casa De La Luz Hospice’s The Unbroken Circle: Deepening the Power of Presence at the End of Life, The British Columbia Hospice and Palliative Care Association, Institute for Noetic Sciences, The Center for Integrative Medicine, as well as the Sunstone Cancer Center, among many others. He is a contributing author to the recently released Oxford University Press compilation edited by Dr. Christina Puchalski, entitled, A Time for Listening and Caring: Spirituality at the End of Life, for an essay on the power of music as a catalyst for greater meaning during the end of life process.

Gary is proud to have served as the Artistic Director for a number of global events, such as the ’04 and ‘06 Quest for Global Healing Conferences, featuring Archbishop Desmond Tutu and other Nobel Laureates, in Bali, Indonesia. He was asked to serve as Artistic Director for the Noetic Sciences International Conference on Health and Consciousness, weaving relevant arts performances throughout. In 2006 at San Francisco’s Grace Cathedral, Gary was the producer of
a breathtaking Middle Eastern Peace Concert, Music Heals, to a capacity audience, gathering together multi-faith musicians from all over the embattled region. For all of these events, his role was to revitalize the role the performing arts could play within a conference setting that gathered around a particular theme, dramatically deepening the involvement of the participants exponentially.

In May of 2008, TED Curator, Chris Anderson, commissioned him to compose the theme package for the global media phenomenon, PANGEA DAY. Airing on Chinese national television during the 2008 Beijing Olympics, he was the only American featured performer in the Great Hall of China as part of an annual cultural festival where he was introduced as a pioneer in the field of music and healing.

After many years of exploring the power of combining music with spoken wisdom, he and his team are now launching a new concept in contemporary digital media called WisdomFIlms: Media for Human Being” featuring the world’s known and unknown visionaries, awakened with the power of music and imagery. Through his performances, presentations and recordings, he is committed to promoting a greater understanding of the power of music and the media arts as a potential source of healing and integration of body, mind, spirit and heart.

“My Two year old, Erin, loves her ABZ'S of MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS book by Aunt Susie. She has learned the names of so many new instruments! We love to match the pictures in the book with the instruments we have. Then we make music! This book inspired us to expand our instruments and make music together as a family.” —Bonnie Shea
