“If you have never heard Beth give a singing bowl concert, please come and experience it”

Tibetan Singing Bowls (also known as bells) have been used as an instrument for healing which go back many years BC. This specific form of healing that she teaches and uses in her practice is an ancient form of healing that has been handed down from generation to generation by Tibetan Buddhist monks.
After intensive study with third generation master sound healer Shree Krishna Shahi Beth is now qualified to teach this amazing deep form of Sound Healing.

Our bodies are comprised of up to 80% water and the vibration of the bowls physically harmonize with the body on a cellular level to bring balance, harmony and healing on physical, mental and spiritual levels.

This form of energy work must be experienced to fully understand how deep and effective this ancient modality is.

Drumming has been practiced by humans as far back as 7500 B.C. according to archeological findings. We humans have been using drumming in community and in healing practices for all this time. Indigenous peoples still practice it, and drumming continues to be used by shamanic practitioners as an adjunct to their journeying as healers. And now drumming is finding its way into some hospitals.

The drum creates a sound vibration to which the body responds/resonates, assisting the body’s return to vibrational harmony. This return is only possible when the body is in the “rest and digest” state, or the parasympathetic nervous system. It is only in this state that the body may do its repair and maintenance work. Scientific research has revealed many physical benefits which support the healing process, especially since music and rhythm access the brain globally.

And there is the ability of the drum to create a sense of community. Rhythm is the universal language in a sense, and the communication is non verbal and emotional. Everyone is speaking, and everyone is being heard…..
