The use of music in pastorai therapy. Both religion and music are ways for a person to express a relationship with God, other people, nature and the self. In the premodem paradigm, the interwoven relationship between human bangs, music and religion was seen holistically. The rationalism of the modern era allenated people from this ontological relationship with music. Following the modern era, the current postmodern need for wholeness has resulted in various holistic therapies. This aricle examines the use of music as a powerful therapeutic resource in pastoral therapy. It argues that music can be used to assist a person as an integraed being. The use of a holisic approach emphas'zes the creat've responsibility and various possibilities of a life coram Deo.
