Sound Healing – Restoring the Harmony of your vibration
Sound is a powerful source of healing capable of rebalancing, rejuvenating and healing the physical body, mind, heart and spirit. Used since the beginning of days, it has played a part in every civilization of the world tending to the holistic needs of the people and helping to unite them with their own magick and the greater Divine. Edwin Courtenay uses his voice in combination with the pure tones of Crystal Singing Bowls, the rhythmic power of the Shamanic Drum, Koshi Bells, the Silver Branch, the Sansula, tongue Drums and the Native American Flute to tend holistically to the individual’s need, guided by Spirit to create a bespoke sound healing journey. In this lecture Edwin will not only demonstrate this array of powerful instruments but also explain how each one affects the different fields of energy, chakras and holistic states and how we can “self medicate” with sound by following a few simple guide lines and rules. This promises to be a powerful, interactive lecture complete with a sound journey meditation perfect for relaxing too and receiving a balanced healing – just what the sound doctor ordered!
