In 2018, during one of my yoga teacher-training seminars, guided meditation was accompanied by Himalayan singing bowls. I was blown away by the way it made me feel. Almost immediately, I noticed how the physical tension I’d accumulated throughout that day was released and the buzz of my thoughts was quickly quietened. In short, I managed to easily fall into an incredibly deep meditative state.
Curious and enthralled, I began to research the phenomena of sound. Combing through scientific papers and studies, Vedic texts, articles and books, I discovered a wealth of information about the effects of sound on the body and mind. This was when I learnt for the first time about the healing properties of sound-induced non-ordinary states of consciousness.
The next phase was to hone my knowledge and skills by learning to be a professional sound therapist. After graduating from the British Academy of Sound Therapy, the Peter Hess® Institute and becoming a member of both the The International Therapeutic Sound Association and the International Association of Sound Massage, I am still endlessly enchanted by the exploration of therapeutic sound. The power of sound to improve both our physical and mental health never ceases to amaze me.
