- My Song -
My Song has been a part of me from the very beginning. I would hear it while riding my bicycle through the park. I would hum it while playing with dandelions in the field. We each have a unique Song within us that can be heard when we stop, breathe and cultivate joy in the moment.
Growing up, music has always played an important part in my life. I am grateful that my parents supported this through exposure of many genres of music, as well as classical violin training. As my taste for music developed, I found myself floating on a cloud after attending live performances. Around this time I found yoga and meditation as a way to 'tune in' to the inner harmony I felt intuitively.
The Singing Bowls came to me unexpectedly. While looking for a yoga class, I came across a 'Sound Bath' event which piqued my interest. The resonance of the bowls, along with observing the breath, created a flow of energy between body and mind. I found I could work with this energy by adding intention to manifest joy, peace and compassion within.
Although this experience was profound, my decision to work with Singing Bowls took a winding path. Over the next few years I was fortunate to travel extensively and become introduced to the arts of herbalism, tea ceremony, and other various healing arts.
Because words are labels that can not be experienced directly, I kindly use as few as possible to define my current practice. I am eternally grateful for the Nepalese master who trained me on how to use Himalayan Singing Bowls to share my Song with others. I would like to extend my deepest gratitude to my partner, for without him and his loving support I would not be on this beautiful journey.
