Welcome to my website. My name is Faith Halverson-Ramos. I’m a person interested in creativity and consciousness who happens to be a mental health professional and music therapist.

However, please note that this is not my business website. If you are seeking mental health and music therapy services, go to SoundWell Music Therapy.

What You’ll Find at Meaning to a Muse

On my blog, I write about what it means to live a well-lived life. Things I may write about include:

  • Music
  • Creativity
  • Spirituality

In particular, I reflect on how these things can affect one’s health and sense of well-being. Through this blog, I seek to inspire people to attune to their health and live their best life. It is my belief that more people doing this can contribute to the cultivation of a more fair, just, and peaceful world.

You will also find on this website resources to posters or presentations I have given.

Why I Find Value in Playing with Meaning and Music

As a board-certified music therapist, I find music to be both amusing and inspiring. I personally experience this for myself, and I see it in others professionally. Music invites people throughout the lifespan and across cultures to move, sing, play, create, and engage with the world.

I’m also trained as a transpersonal psychotherapist. Viewing life through a sacred lens, I recognize how life experiences, whether they be transcendent, mundane, or painful, can ultimately contribute to our greater growth and healing. I further recognize the role that music and engaging in acts of creativity can have in helping to create personal life meaning, connection, growth, and healing.

As a person, I’m prone towards irreverence. Being able to not take things TOO seriously and being able to find the cosmic humor in life as a human being does the mind, body, and soul good. I know laughter and play to be good medicine.

Bringing this all together, I can occasionally be found performing as a Contemplative Singer-Songwriter in a style that I call, “Americonsciousness.” The fourth Sunday of the month I’m the guest musician at Unity Longmont Spiritual Center.
