Jonathan Goldman is an author, musician and teacher in the fields of Harmonics and Sound Healing. He is based in Boulder, CO. His career spans over 30 years.

His interest in using sound as a healing modality originated from his own experiences during live performances as a guitarist in the Boston punk scene in the late 1970s. While playing, he became aware of how sound could be made to affect listeners either negatively or positively, determined, in part, by the intention of the musician, not just the physical act of playing an instrument, nor the emotional energy felt by the musician while playing. Based on these experiences, Goldman began to research the science of sound and music psychology, directing his overall studies towards the use of sound as a healing force.

His research and desire to connect with like-minded people led to his founding of the Sound Healers Association (SHA) in Lexington, MA in 1982. SHA was a small, informal gathering of musicians, artists, scientists, teachers and authors, as well as anyone else who was interested in the topic of sound healing. Meetings were organized by Goldman; they were held in his home once a month and typically included a guest speaker's presentation, followed by a Q&A. Guest speakers included Steven Halpern, John Beaulieu, Randall McClellan and Dr. Peter Guy Manners. Subjects discussed at SHA meetings included the work of Hans Jenny; Resonance; Musica universalis; Harmonics and Entrainment.

During this time, Goldman worked on his Master's Degree program in Independent Study from Lesley University, researching the Uses of Sound and Music for Healing. This work would later become the main source of material for his first published works. He also began recording his own music and he formed Spirit Music, one of the first record labels dedicated to the therapeutic use of sound and music. Spirit Music has recorded and released music by Goldman, as well as Don Campbell, Sarah Benson, Sam McClellan, Laraaji, the Gyume Monks and more recently, Lama Tashi, among others.

Goldman's healing music and writing has been heavily influenced by the early SHA meetings as well as mythology; psychology; multi-cultural music traditions; ancient religions; mathematics and speculative fiction. In short, Goldman has a three-part theory that runs beneath all of his written and music works:

  1. That everything in the universe is in a state of vibration. Everything is in motion and produces a sound or frequency. This includes the various parts of our body, organs, bones, tissue, etc.
  2. When we are in a state of "sound" health, everything in our bodies is vibrating in resonance or harmony with itself. When something is vibrating out of harmony, we call this "disease".
  3. Sound is an energy that can entrain or change the vibrational rate of objects. Therefore, if something is vibrating out of tune or harmony, it is possible to create the correct, natural "resonant" frequency of the out of tune object, project it to that out of tune portion and cause it to vibrate back to its normal, healthy state.
This, in turn, can be summarized as: Frequency + Intent = Healing.
