Join me in a gentle, restorative, and meditative experience with sacred sound and the voice. Share your session with a few close friends or book your own space in this opportunity to go within while being bathed in beautiful music. I open each circle with ceremonial smudging and a brief history on the science of sound healing. We'll set intentions for the session, and then you'll be invited to lie down and relax for a sound journey with crystal singing bowls, voice and other instruments. Currently offering virtual 1:1 and small group sessions online. Opportunities available to receive distance reiki, if desired. We can also open up the practice with ceremonial cacao, known to be a very heart opening plant medicine.
REST, RELAX, HEAL, RESTORE, AND CONNECT TO YOUR HEART THROUGH SOUND CEREMONY
LEARN MORE ABOUT SACRED SOUND CEREMONY EXPERIENCES
I've been singing my whole life - in church, school choirs, and high school musicals. I experimented with trumpet, guitar, and piano and even studied music in college. But when I began to seek expression outside of my faith tradition, I left music behind. Or so I thought.
In January 2019, over the course of two nights in a spontaneous chanting circle and cacao ceremony, I came back home to the truest part of myself - my voice. I remembered a piece of myself long forgotten come to life. It was calling me to follow the music. I embarked on a journey of soul healing that took me to Costa Rica, Guatemala, England, Portugal, and back to Chicago. During that time I learned to free my voice through circle singing, voice workshops & lessons, vocal activation sessions, sacred ceremony, shamanic journeys, and mantra. The tradition of preparing ceremonial cacao was passed on to me, and I received my Reiki Level II attunement. At the beginning of 2020, I completed a 100 Hour Yoga Alliance Certified Sound Ceremony training. Now I'm answering my soul's call to offer these healing sound experiences with others.
Sound healing therapy creates a vibrational atmosphere that relaxes the nervous system and allows you to enter into a theta brain state where the body can begin to restore and repair itself. Being in this meditative state promotes a sense of peace and wellbeing and has been known to reduce stress and release trauma. It is a sacred container where you are invited to open your heart, connect with your intuition, and tune into the frequencies of love, gratitude, and joy.
"Ceremony is a sacred gathering in deeper presence where we are showing up as ourselves, in our truest, most authentic expression. Ceremony brings us together in common intention, and invites Spirit to be present with us. Opening and holding a sacred space in this way invites an opportunity for deep transformation to take place with our bodies, minds, and spirits. Sound ceremony, then, is the gathering in reverence and presence of sound." -Jayananda James Roland
