It was after Taking inspiration from the Bee’s who also suffer from Dementia (and probably loss and grief as well ) that the core concept for Musical N.O.T.E.s (MNCT) was born.
Musical N.O.T.E.s is a Community embracing Creative Scheme which Churches, Youth clubs, Schools, Dementia homes and Private citizens can utilise to access healing through Waves and Unity..
The Spiritual aspect revolves around dialogue and support for individuals through Sound, Song writing, Expression of Self or generally Artistic means while undergoing Non Ordinary Transitory Experiences, something Science and Psychology are Only now recognising.
Individuals or groups can also access MNCT to heal and improve their own wellbeing and mental state as well as embrace large and forgotten communities.
