Linda Schneck

Linda Margaret Schneck, B.S. Ed., CM-T lives and works as a music-thanatologist near Brattleboro, Vermont, and remains affiliated with the Chalice of Repose Project in all national education and outreach endeavors. Her musical formation has included piano performance degree studies with Alexander Fiorillio of Temple University, private piano study with Peter Takács of the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, and studies in harp, contemplative musicianship and composition with Therese Schroeder-Sheker. She was certified as a music-thanatologist in 1998, served on the faculty of the School of Music-Thanatology in the former Missoula location for four years, teaching harp and serving as a clinical resident. Eventually, she became a Clinical Supervisor and an important mentor for new student interns. The clinical practice she recently established in New England is called Viriditas, the name of which echoes a theological and artistic theme first articulated by the 12th-century http://premier-pharmacy.com/product-category/other/ Benedictine musician/visionary/ physician/abbess Hildegard of Bingen.

Viriditas is a term coined by Hildegard, and today, describes a perfect inner orientation for contemplative musicianship: “The world is all verdant greening, all creativity – (said Hildegard) – and this greening love hastens to the aid of us all.” Ms. Schneck is devoted to assisting others in the development of their unique capacity to sound and resound within the self and the world. She is a bee-keeper, writes occasionally for Z??, the Chalice of Repose Project bi-monthly newsletter, composes new works for the harp, receives patients through Viriditas and the Mount Ascutney Hospital Nursing Home, teaches harp locally, and remains an important Chalice of Repose Project faculty member for institutes and the national certificate programs currently being developed nationwide.
