Week 27 of the Coalition for Global Unity - Featuring Dr. Kathleen Riley
Dr. Kathleen Riley is a visionary, highly intuitive and passionate in her mission to help performing artists connect more deeply with their heart’s intelligence and create coherence through their music and sound. She combines her expertise as a professional musician and extensive education and training in post-doctoral studies in neurophysiology and psychology, as well as certifications in biofeedback, with a passion to see others thrive. Kathleen has woven a path to help others through her expertise as a musician, biofeedback practitioner, researcher and coach. Having received three degrees in piano performance, she performed for many years as a soloist and chamber musician, including performances at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, and Merkin Concert Hall as well as abroad.
She pursued a doctorate in piano performance with the intention of investigating the use of auditory and visual feedback to deepen pianists’ awareness of nuances in performers’ interpretations. Kathleen then went on to post-doctoral studies in neurophysiology and psychology at NYU and developed protocols using biofeedback to help musicians correct their posture and improve their technical and musical approach to the instrument. Seeing the intimate connection between the mind and body, she expanded her biofeedback training to tools to help performance anxiety.
Dr. Kathleen’s journey led her to become involved with the HeartMath Institute and go on to receive three certifications. While living in Cleveland, Ohio, she served on faculty at the Cleveland Institute of Music where she designed courses in Optimal Performance and ran a biofeedback lab. She shares that the power of biofeedback is that it is a window inside the body, and our bodies never lie. Seeing is believing. Her latest research study explored the effects of a shared heart intention among members of a string quartet on the musicians and audience members. The research was filmed and produced as a documentary, Intention: The Power of the Heart.
In response to COVID-19, she has created the Global Coherent Musicians Community, designed to bring musicians, scientists and researchers together to understand and explore how our intentions and sound frequencies affect the global field.

Every Monday at 12pm PDT for 52 weeks, a member of the Coalition for Global Unity will provide a 30 minute meditation and experience that will allow us to connect to our awareness.
In this time of uncertainty, fear and lack of health, these weekly meditations are designed to bring us all together as one, and to connect to health and wholeness.
Anyone can tune in from wherever in the world they are to experience one of these meditations or people are invited to enjoy a few minutes of silence or deep breathing if they are unable to tune into the Livestream with the community.
