Harmonic Sound Therapy
In a Harmonic Sound Therapy session you will experience the vibrational resonance and harmonics of Gongs, Himalayan and quartz crystal singing bowls, sacred Tibetan and indigenous instruments, drums, tuning forks, and the voice (toning, chanting, and song) as therapeutic and transformational tools.
Through skillful means, the Sound Therapist facilitates the synchronization of the body and mind to promote healing, shifts in consciousness, and life change.
Phyllis is an Advanced Master Sound Therapist who has studied the therapeutic, meditative, and mystical use of sound with notable teachers and mentors, including completion of an extensive program of study with Mitch Nur, Phd. Her knowledge and expertise in working with the Himalayan Singing Bowls and Tibetan sacred instruments originates within the ancient shamanic religion of the Bon; the Bonpo being affirmed masters of sound through anthropology and Himalayan tradition. She has a deep understanding of the traditional techniques and uses of Himalayan Singing Bowls, Gongs, Ganta and Vajra, Tingsha, Voice, and other indigenous instruments including: drums, rattles, whistles, and bells. In addition she is a Shen Practitioner utilizing the Bonpo Shang. The Shang is a ritual, upturned flat hand bell of the Bonpo Shaman used to throw or cast thoughts. It is made of consecrated metal alloy and originates with the ancient Kingdom of KhangZhung nearly 18,000 years ago.
The basic principle of Sound Therapy is that everything is in a state of vibration. Not only our external environment which we filter through our bodies, or what we ingest into our bodies such as fluids, foods and chemicals, but within the physical body — we have the individual vibratory resonances and rhythms of our organs, bones, connective tissues, cells, blood flow, heart beat, pulse, nervous system, and so forth. When the body is incapable of filtering properly for any number of reasons, and the flow of energy becomes stuck, stopped, or stagnant, this creates an environment for injury, illness, and disease. Harmonic Sound Therapy works within the electromagnetic field of the body, flowing through the tissues and bones, and on a cellular level as the wavelengths of sound are transported on the fluids of the body in resonate, vibratory patterns.
“Music without words means leaving behind the mind. And leaving behind the mind is meditation. Meditation returns you to the source. And the source of all is sound.” ~ Kabir

Do you have an upcoming event which marks a special transition in your life or the life of a loved? A personalized Sacred Sounds Meditation or Ceremony can be an extraordinary addition to highlight special life changes and transitions such as weddings and memorial services.
Transitional Sacred Sounds Meditation or Ceremony
In creating a Transitional Ceremony, I use a variety of sacred and indigenous instruments and voice as a transformative and ritualistic force, to connect with and honor ourselves and others, who have or are at the threshold of transition or life passage. Ceremonies can be created for any type of transition or event such as memorials, weddings, anniversaries, and any other lifetime events which hold great meaning and intention that you wish to honor.
My instruments serve to resonate my intention and foster an environment in which to experience physical and emotional healing, growth, expansion and transformation. My voice is the human instrument serving as a vehicle for love, compassion, strength, and comfort.
