Sounds, tunes, melodies, beats …. bowing down to the sense of hearing. This almighty feature of our human composition significantly contributes to the level of experiences we have which feed minds and souls with the nutritious feast to our senses, let’s introduce this simple but how complicated sense, hearing. Sound travels through the external ear canal before reaching the eardrum thanks to the human ear. The multiplicity of vibrations travels then to the middle ear where three small bones vibrate. Those vibrating impulses travel through sensory nerves and the sound becomes part of the experience present in our life moments.
Hearing is incremental to the quality of life we experience. It is the essence of connections, community spirit, engagement and enjoyment. It also carries this deeper meaning related to the heritage of our own selves or our tribe. Hearing is essential for shaping the quality of life we have the honour to be part of.
