Mederi Music

Music Therapy & Mindfulness Meditation

Dorian Wallace, MT-BC

Mederi Music is the private practice of composer, pianist, music therapist, and teacher Dorian Wallace. My passion is to connect with other human beings through music and the mind. Music has been an essential part of our evolution since the Paleolithic era and is an integral part of our history and our evolution of consciousness. I practice music and meditation as a means to bring people together, inspire social, political, economic, or environmental transformation, promote healing, and offer support to people to directly investigate their consciousness's subtle, unconscious, and transpersonal aspects.

Demographics of Interest

Although I work in a diverse spectrum of communities and people, there are a few demographics in which I specialize.

  • Activists facing burnout

  • Anti-war veterans, conscientious objectors, & disillusioned service members

  • Exit counseling (religious, political, psychotherapy, & commercial cult disaffiliation)

  • Incarcerated persons

  • Irreligious & secular communities
