06 Mar Sound Healing Class
From this past weekend, a 4 day workshop was held at Karuna Wellness Centre by Jessica Dao of ‘The Pyramid of Light.’ I was unable to attend, but from what I hear, it was a great success! I did, however attend an extra class that was held on Monday night which was a sound therapy/singing bowl class. This was a great class! One of Jessica’s participants ran this class, where she utilised gongs, many singing bowls, and a unique instrument that sounded like wind chimes combined with bells! I found the experience interesting, and was surprised to experience different emotions while listening to the different sounds. The gongs were great, but intense, and loud, and heavy, and I felt slightly unsettled listening to those sounds. In contrast, the chimes were my favourite, and absolutely beautiful! I’d never heard an instrument like this before. It sounded magical, and joyful, and gentle, and light. It put a big smile on my face, and it created a wonderful feeling of happiness within me. Loved it! I am looking into where I can get one of these for Karuna Wellness Centre. Overall, a wonderful and interesting class!
It was a meditation class essentially, with the focus for the students being that of the sounds of the intruments. Sound meditations are not only about focussing the mind, they are designed to clear blocked energy, therefore being a healing art form! In fact, many sound researchers believe that disease is the body being “out of tune” and that sound can be used to tune the body so it can heal. The harmonic sounds of bells, chimes, gongs, singing bowls, and didgeridoo’s help to restore harmony and balance to your energy bodies, and your environment, dispelling disharmonious energy.
Healing with sound uses sound frequencies to restore harmony and balance. Sound is vibration, and that moves throughout our body and energy field. Like other forms of vibrational healing, sound healing is based on the principle of “harmonic resonance.” All matter generates electrical and electromagnetic energy fields at a precise frequency. When the frequencies between two or more sources align, they are in a state of vibrational or “harmonic resonance.” When you introduce the correct frequency, it reminds the body’s energy field of its original blueprint and helps restore harmony to the system.
I hope that throughout the week you can become aware of the sounds around you, and let that be your meditation practice! It doesn’t have to be the sounds of a singing bowl. However, if you can get your hands on one, or find a class, I recommend it! If not, you can listen to your favourite music, or be mindful of the sounds of nature.

May you all have a wonderful week!
