I seem to have been spiritually guided towards music and sound over these past few months. It is always inspiring to me when I realize how new paths are introduced to my life. I think this journey started subtlety when I had the feeling that we should have Chakra chimes at Limina, something that supported the Chakras and was in line with the energy of Limina. When shopping for the Chimes I seemingly, by impulse, decided to buy a musical instrument, A Hand Pan.
Never heard one in person, never played percussion, I just knew I should get one! I love the sound of this beautiful instrument. As I started playing these new instruments I realized how they worked together in a very soothing and healing way. Without much forethought I incorporated them into my Forest Bathing walks as a wonderful introduction and grounding component. With that it was a natural addition to add a Sound Bathing session at our Forest Bathing retreat. At the same time I came across a fascinating book by Eilieen Day McKusick, ‘Tuning the Human Biofield’. She details how to use tuning forks to find and clear pain and trauma stored in the biofield and reveals how the traditional principles and locations of the chakras correspond directly with her biofield discoveries…. Offering a revolutionary perspective on mind, energy, memory, and trauma, McKusick’s guide to Biofield Tuning provides new avenues of healing for energy workers, massage therapists, sound healers, and those looking to overcome chronic illness and release the traumas of their past.
This book connected all these sound related events in my life. The connection of this invisible energy that gives the nourishment for life’s existence. We had our Retreat and I experienced firsthand a full sound bathing session and met several practitioners including one directly trained by Eileen Day McKusick! The journey continues, I immediately connected with the sound practitioners and we have scheduled a full retreat on sound healing. I am excited and intrigued to experience the next step on this path.
The Healing Potential of Sound
January 5, 2024 – January 8, 2024
A unique and powerful healing journey. Join retreat leaders Jim Doble, Maleine Gargurevich and Forest Weston to experience the complexity of the sounds of Gongs, Singing Bowls, and Drums. These amazing instruments both lead one into deep relaxation while simultaneously stimulating new kinds of neural activity, creating a great sonic “soup” for transformation and healing to take place. Words can not describe the power of these sessions.
