New audio download released! – “Materialism”
A talk by John Diamond, M.D.
A penetrating and insightful exploration of materialism, one of the most pervasive problems in modern life. Our society is immersed in materialism – money, possessions, objects, science, measurement, quantification – and its domination prevents us from truly embracing the spiritual. At a superficial level the problem manifests as the belief, usually unconscious, that money is more important than people. Underneath, however, lies a loss in the belief of the existence of love itself. Diamond suggests that one possibility for helping the problem long-term and at a deep level lies in the use of music, and believes that this therapeutic aim will be a central role for the music of the future.
