Contemplative Practices- great tools for great living!
I have found that meditation and contemplative practices like QiGong and sound healing have been helpful for me and for many of my clients. I lead small group meditation at The Meditation Place (check out their many offerings), and teach classes in sound healing. I also teach these techniques as a bodywork instructor at Boulder Massage Therapy Institute.

In 2017 I brought my singing bowls to The TANK in Rangely, Colorado. This is a 65-foot tall empty water tank that has become a recording mecca for sound artists. The sounds of the crystal singing bowls are magnified, bathing the listener in an ocean of vibration! My intention in making this album is to use the power of sound vibration to help you create the shifts you need in your life.
