Healing and Transformation through Sound
“Come into this sacred vessel, where the sounds of creation
will resonate your body and soul back Home.”
The first time I experienced a sound healing session I almost quit graduate school. It’s true. I was in my first semester at Naropa and I went to a sound healer in Boulder. As I lay on the table during the session, all I could think was “This feels like Home!” All I wanted to do was learn sound healing.
Luckily I came to my senses, and didn’t quit graduate school, but I did eventually learn sound healing – studying at the Kairos Institute, The Tibetan Bowl Sound Healing School, and 9Ways Academia with world-renowned Bowl and Gong master Mitch Nur. I have been in love with it ever since.
It is the most heavenly, divine experience to be transformed by the music of these sacred instruments. They are designed to create altered states of consciousness that open your being to your True Nature, expanding the channels for your Essential Self to slip in, and stay. They powerfully quiet the mind, harmonizing brain wave patterns, and dissolving the boundaries between mind, body and spirit, allowing you to slip into states of bliss and well-being.
The instruments I use in my work are Himalayan singing bowls, gongs, and sometimes tuning forks. The bowls and gongs have all been hand-picked by me, recognized as special beings in their own right who lend their presence and sacred sounds to help us evolve in consciousness.
I have 12 beautiful singing bowls, most of them antique bowls that came from times when they were handmade and created to be used in ceremony and meditation. These bowls have been with me for some years now, and have been working together, resonating with one another in my healing sessions and sound meditations. When they are laid on and/or around you, you are bathed in the sacred vibrations of divine consciousness.
I have 5 stunning gongs, which have also been handpicked by me. They range in size from 54” to 24”, and are placed around my massage table so you are bathed in sound differently than with the singing bowls. The gong voice is powerful and enveloping, even when they are played gently.
I don’t bang on the gongs, I play them smoothly so they build until they almost play themselves. I’m simply creating the invitation for them to sing to you in the voices that best suit your soulful needs.
How can you experience a Sound Healing Session?
First of all you can experience all these instruments in every session I do in my sound healing studio.
You can also come for a session that is not about deep, energetic healing, but one that serves more as a supportive, nurturing experience, tuning your mind, body, and spirit.
You would come to the session with an intention regarding something you wish to manifest in your life, and I invoke that intention through prayers and blessings while I am playing the bowls and gongs.
The “voices” of the instruments powerfully enhance the prayers and blessings, so you are not only bathed in them during the session, but they are sent out into the universe to work on your behalf. As part of these sessions you are anointed with essential oils, and flower and gem essences, to support the experience of these beautiful and juicy sessions.
