GIM has changed me and my thinking a lot. . . . I think the reason I shifted to GIM is that I found it to be the most life changing experience. If I explain it in terms of my own GIM experiences as a client, I would say that it was not the supposedly “therapeutic” elements of GIM, it was not the meaning of the images, it was not the relationship to the guide that was life changing. Those were all very important and certainly relevant to my psychotherapeutic needs, but what was life changing was the new relationship to music that I developed. This is what changed me both personally and professionally: it was a new ability to enter music in ways which were just absolutely unknown to me – as a performer and as an improviser“(Bruscia, K. E. & Stige, B. (2000). “The Nature of Meaning in Music Therapy: Kenneth Bruscia interviewed by Brynjulf Stige.” Nordic Journal of Music Therapy, Volume 9(2), 84-96).
