The Importance of Proper Training + Skilled Teacher:

  Proper training, techniques, and experience are vital to the wellness of participants.  

Please be certain you attend Meditation and Sound Baths conducted by a true and trained professional.  

Without proper training, there can be negative effects both emotionally and physically. 

 

Meditation and Sound taps into both the physical body and psychological mind, changing brain waves, thoughts and emotions and the chemistry of the body.  It is vital that proper education and training, both scientific and philosophical, is properly incorporated into the training of becoming a Sound Therapist and Meditation Master.

 

Sound is one of the very first senses we develop as embryos and is our first connection to the outside world creating an instant form of comfort that stays with us through adulthood.  Sound can have both positive and negative effects and it is vital that a trained professional in Sound Therapy conduct all sessions - one cannot learn to play a bowl by simply watching a youtube video or mirroring another Sound professional. 

As an example, sound pressure is measured in decibels (dB) and with extended exposure, noises that reach a decibel level of 85 can cause permanent damage to the hair cells in the inner ear, leading to hearing loss. Many common sounds may be louder than you think. Trained sound therapists maintain dB's that are safe.  In addition, playing sound bowls and conducting meditation requires an understanding of the flow of energy through the body.  Certain bowls, frequencies, and notes should be and should not be played together and there is a proper flow of sound that needs to take place during a session that allows you to come in and out of a deep meditative space safely and effectively. 

Properly trained sound therapists bring you on a beautiful journey through your body that is both safe and effective.

It is vital to have a trained professional conduct Meditation and Sound events.

They have each been hand-selected from Tibet, India, and Nepal, and form a harmony when played together. Each bowl has a certain note and frequency that correlates to a particular part of the body (chakra).  Each bowl was handmade by monks with a mantra being recited as each hammer strike formed the bowl.  It is vital to attend Sound Baths where the equipment is authentic, harmonized and properly used.  

  • Her Pure Quartz Crystal and Alchemy Crystal Bowls are made from 99.992% pure crushed quartz crystal infused with gemstones and precious metals from the earth creating the "alchemy".  Each bowl has a variety of effects that interact with each other in ever-expanding alchemies: clearing, activating, restructuring, rebalancing, and healing.  Alchemy Crystal Bowls are exquisite and emit a pure, cosmic sound that expands into a multitude of vibrant overtones.  Through sound, vibrations, and intent, they assist in clearing blockages, activating chakras and elevating our state of consciousness.  Alchemy Crystal Bowls are one-of-a-kind and handmade.  Each bowl has a significant investment and provides some of the most incredible experiences for participants.  She hand selects her bowls through a world-renowned Sound Healer + Professional Sound Engineer to ensure they blend and are harmonized.
