Symphony of Sound

Sound vibration is a powerful medium for creating change. Most ancient cultures used the seemingly magical power of sound to heal. The Healing Sound facilitator uses crystal meditation bowls, Tibetan singing bowls, didgeridoo and other instruments that go back centuries and combines them with modern technology, visual and voice techniques to create an environment conducive for healing in the body, mind and spirit.
