Sound therapy + creating a life of resonance with May Globus
How do we explain what resonates with us and what doesn’t? And what is resonance, anyways? You may—or may not—be surprised to learn that the word resonate actually refers to the creation or experience of a deep, full, and reverberating sound … which brings us to today’s very special guest.
For this week’s show, we speak to May Globus, a sound therapist with an amazing podcast of her own, called The Craft. If you’re wondering what a sound therapist does, imagine being enveloped by sound to the point where it feels like it’s washing over you (which is maybe why the experience is also referred to as a sound bath).
I’ve had the opportunity to experience a sound bath—which sounds way goop-ier than the deeply calming and immersive experience that it is—on more than one occasion. I’m quite fascinated not only by the longstanding connection that sound has to traditional healing and spiritual modalities, but also by the modern research attempting to understand this natural phenomenon.
Today’s pod topic is a little different than we’ve explored before so we hope you enjoy!
About May Globus:
Inquisitive is May Globus’ natural state. A former fashion, lifestyle, and culture journalist, she was Vancouver city editor for Rogers Media’s female-focused digital lifestyle magazine Sweetspot. She followed her curiosity into marketing, branding & communications for over 10 years, working both with and within social impact companies across North America, including TEDactive, rennie group, Westbank, the Clinton Giustra Enterprise partnership, and more. Out of deep, inspired conversations she has on the regular with the creatives and entrepreneurs in her world, her podcast The Craft came into being.

On this episode we chat about:
- What sound therapy really is (the practice, history, and science of it)
- Why May decided to cultivate a routine of sound therapy—and offer it to others
- How the experience of sound therapy creates resonance to support our healing
- The importance of letting go and truly feeling what comes up in our bodies and minds
- Why creativity plays a role for healing in childhood AND adulthood
- How spoken mantras can help soothe and calm our nervous system
- Why human connection is vital to our health
- Did you know sound healing is supported by both quantum physics and biochemistry?! May tells us about that too!
