Power of music to be explored
The power of music to affect our moods, enhance our mental state and aid in our physical well-being will be explored at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Lifetree Cafe, 1110 Campus Drive, Suite C.
The program, titled "Unlocking the Mystery of Music," features an exclusive film about a music therapist and a patient who credits music with helping in his recovery.
"We'll share research that provides practical strategies for using music to enhance our lives," said Lifetree representative Craig Cable. "Music can improve memory, ease pain and even help with weight loss."
Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages will be available.
Lifetree Cafe is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual coffeehouse-type setting.
Questions about Lifetree may be directed to Angie at (620) 640-4892.
