What is a Sound Healing and Harmonic Therapy Session?
I have studied various sound healing therapy techniques utilizing Himalayan and quartz crystal singing bowls, sacred Tibetan and indigenous instruments, gongs, and tuning forks as therapeutic and transformational tools. As a classically trained vocalist, I incorporate the use of my voice through toning, chanting, vocalizations and song.
Singing bowls are placed on and around the body in different configurations based on sacred geometry, the energy centers (chakras), meridian lines, energetic calibration points, the auric field, and intuition. Tuning Forks may be struck and resonated over parts of the body and throughout the energy field. And suspended gongs may be placed at the head and foot of the table creating a wave structure of universal sound that flows over and through the body.
Sound Healing and Harmonic Therapy sessions are focused through discussion and intuitive guidance, to assist in addressing each clients specific needs and intention for the session.
The goal of each session is to re-balance the energetic systems and vibrational frequencies of the physical body as a whole, opening the pathways for healing and forward movement on all levels.
This is accomplished by gradually drawing you down into a deeply meditative and relaxed state utilizing the diverse vibrational frequencies and harmonics of sound, transitioning the brain through Alpha (meditative), Theta (recall) and Delta (deep trance), where your bodies own innate healing wisdom can start to heal, release, repair and transform.
Sacred Sounds Healing Concerts/Meditations
While you rest comfortably on a mat, you will experience the resonant sound, rhythm and harmonies of many instruments including Quartz Crystal Singing Bowls, Himalayan Singing Bowls, Gongs, Drums and other indigenous instruments interwoven with my voice as a musical instrument. This unique union of vibrational sound creates transformational patterns that clear and magnetize the physical and nonphysical bodies. As you absorb the waves of vibrational sound energy you will gain a deep sense of relaxation, accelerate energetic healing, spiritual awakening, and immerse yourself in a blissful remembrance of unity with all creation.
My pure quartz crystal singing bowls produce a vibrational sound field which resonates through the energy centers (chakras) and corresponding physical area, magnifying and transmitting powerful and pure tones. My certified antique, hand-pounded Himalayan Singing Bowls are traditionally made from a mixture of metal alloys including gold, silver, mercury, copper, iron, tin, and lead.
When playing a singing bowl, sounds are created by the friction of a wooden or leather wrapped mallet or stick, by rubbing it around the rim of the bowl. With the Tibetan singing bowls, this produces complex and beautiful harmonics and overtones as the bowl is sung. Singing bowls are also struck with a soft mallet to produce a warm bell tone, or even stroked on the rim with a violin bow to create an ethereal wave pattern.
I communicate intimately with my 32-inch Symphonic Gong, 22-inch Wind Gong, and smaller antique Tibetan and Indian Gongs to create a wide range of sounds utilizing different techniques to energetically illicit or activate a different response. When struck with a mallet, gongs emit a sonorous sound of complex vibrations which burst into a wave-like succession of reverberations and tones, sometimes shrill, sometimes deep. They can be struck or tapped with mallets in various locations, sung with a well-rosined bow, or rubbed with a superball mallet to produce eerie harmonics.
"The gong is very simple. It is the sound of Creativity itself. One who plays the gong plays the Universe. The gong is not an ordinary thing to play. Out of it came all music, all sounds, and all words. The sound of the gong is the nucleus of the Word. The gong is not a musical instrument, nor a drum. The gong is a beautiful reinforced vibration. It is like a multitude of strings, as if you played with a million strings. The gong is the only tool with which you can produce this combination of space vibration." - Yogi Bhajan
"The gong is a sacred threshold. It is the portal that links the finite and the infinite experience of the Self. As such, the gong is the most sublime instrument of the Yogi. It is a cauldron in which you can create alchemical blends of qualities that open and develop the Inner Self." - Gurucharan Singh
Utilized for centuries in traditional and alternative healthcare, the “striking and singing” of the singing bowls creates a wave pattern which is equivalent to the Alpha waves produced by the brain. As a form of meditation, people have been known to experience a heightened shift in consciousness and the altering of thought patterns. The amazing property of the singing bowls amplifies the power of thought and our intentions, which is the means by which we create our reality. Your participation in a Sacred Sounds Healing Concert or Meditation, will allow you to experience this powerful source of transformation and healing that has been utilized for centuries.
What is a commissioned Sacred Sounds Ceremony?
In a commissioned Sacred Sounds Ceremony I use musical instruments as a transformative and ritualistic force to connect with and honor ourselves and others, who have or are at the threshold of transition or life passage.
In my ceremonies, my voice is the human instrument serving as a vehicle for love, compassion, strength, and comfort. My singing bowls and other sacred and indigenous instruments, serve to resonate my intention and foster an environment in which to experience physical and emotional healing, growth, expansion and transformation.
Sacred Sounds Ceremonies can be created for any type of transition or event such as memorials, weddings, anniversaries, and any other lifetime events which hold great meaning and intention that you wish to honor.
