August Sound Meditation

“ Waning Crescent Moon Gong & Bowl Sound Bath”

After participating in The Gong Summit during the first week in July, I am excited to continue to create with my my new gong setup (36 inch Chau Gong with a powerful deep bass, 24 inch Heng Gong which is the sonic psychedelic in the gong world and Noah Bells). This will be added to my already existing three gongs, singing bowls, flute playing and other accent instruments.

I will intuitively design a flow that will provide you the opportunity to receive what you need from this event. Sound Meditations can move scattered energy, expand consciousness, reduce stress and shift stuck thoughts and energy.

Introducing My YouTube Channel

I am looking to get more subscribers for my YouTube Channel. If you are looking for recordings of relaxation and entrainment music, then this channel maybe worth visiting. Flute, Hand Drums, Didgeridoo, Himalayan Singing Bowls and Gongs (among other instruments to numerous to name) make up the harmonic recordings. Here is the link to my YouTube Channel.

I'm grinning in this headphone selfie because I am playing in my backyard recording natures offerings for the afternoon.  My most recent recording listed on my channel is my bass flute combined with my backyard recording.  Let me know your response!

Please feel free to respond with what you like to hear more of for creating stress reduction, relaxation and centering.  Currently, I am working on some guided meditation and combining various instruments with nature sounds.

Full Moon Gong & Singing Bowl Sound Bath

I am still basking in the glow of a transformative week and "energetic high" after attending and presenting at the 21st. International Energy Psychology Conference in New Mexico. My Learning Lab was on "Integrating Sound Therapy in Your Practice." As part of the Learning Lab there was a twenty minute sound bath.

I'm excited to offer another Sound Bath/Meditation locally on the 13th of June. It will be another opportunity to move emotions, energy and impact your nervous system in positive ways. Some folk report feeling more relaxed than they thought possible, many talk about shifts in consciousness/spiritual experiences and some describe significant reduction of physical pain.

There is no way to promise what you will experience. But we do know that the magical sounds of harmonic resonances helps to move emotions, energy and thus impact our psychological, spiritual and physical experience.

Quieting Your Minds Negative Stories

There are some fancy names for what I will be teaching in my workshop on April 20th (click here for more information on this workshop), Ambient Mode Music Therapy, psycho-neuroacoustic therapy and many more. But Sound work is an ancient practice that science has proven to be highly effective in creating a relaxed state. Being free of a "fight, flight or freeze" response or anxiety is the beginning of positive shifts and movement. As one instructor of mine is always saying, "movement is life."
Harmonics music or sounds can help you to naturally pacify your nasty internal stories and conditioning. Click here for a short post on your Brain's Negativity Bias My day started with feeling off, in a funk. Immediately, I went up into my head and started searching for all the reasons I might feel this way. Of course, your mind will oblige and create all sorts of reasons to match your feelings. Mental stories then feed negative emotions which in turn feed more negative perceptions and thoughts. As many say in my field, "when you are in your head your dead." When I noticed that I was getting up in my head, I sat briefly with my feelings, often that will create a shift. But today it didn't, so I went over and stood in front of my gong and and played a low drone for about ten minutes. I could feed the my mind quieting down and the sound beginning to wash over me and to create a shift in my feelings and thoughts.
To be clear, playing for ten minutes didn't get me to a state of bliss. But it did create the movement that shifted my energy. Sometimes, that is all we need. Something to wash over us and to create a shift.
Everyone doesn't have a 32 inch Sun Gong in their living room. This workshop is about teaching you the various instruments, harmonic sounds and recordings that can create a similar shift.
For example you can go to my youtube channel and listen to live recordings of Sound Baths. Here is a short sample from Three Gongs (with gongs always sounds better with good headphones)
