Non-Traditional Meditation Practice
Specialty: Sound Healing Therapies
Sound Healing and Therapy is a great way to explore meditation and it’s healing qualities. Sound in itself is vibration, and so are we – as living beings. You could say that sound also has life. We all know the way sound and music can make us feel – from listening to our favorite songs or hearing a loud siren drive by. Both have profound effects on our body responses and overall psyches.
The use of intention while meditating (with or without sound) is incredibly powerful to help shape your life and response to life’s curve balls. A well-known sound healing teacher named Jonathan Goldman has said that Frequency+Intention=Healing.
Sound healing uses ancient and modern instruments and techniques to help the body achieve its “rest and digest” state where the parasympathetic nervous system kicks in. While sending vibrations through our already vibratory body it effectively pushes stuck energy out.
Some instruments I use are didgeridoo, crystal and metal singing bowls, shakers, handpan, tongue drum, Native drum, bells, and chimes. They help the brain to “downshift” from our normal waking state of Beta to Alpha (relaxed), Theta (deep meditation) and even Delta (dreamless sleep). It leaves the receiver feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and ready to take on the challenges in their life.
I have been a musician for 25 years, 15 of which have been professional. I spent a decade entrenched in the pop industry before emerging into my soul’s true path – Vibrational Sound Healing. I’ve studied music my entire life, and studied sound healing international with masters of sound including Jonathan Goldman.
Specialties: Yin & Restorative Yoga, Breathwork, Holistic Wellness Coaching
Meditative yoga practices that combine gentle movement, intentional breathing (or “pranayama”), and deep tissue stretching can be healing in nature because they encourage students to quiet their overactive minds as they tune into their bodies. This type of awareness allows for the release of unwanted emotions as well as trauma that has manifested as pain and tension.
