Overview

Science is now proving what the ancient shamans, spiritual masters, teachers, seers and healing artists have known for thousands of years. Sound, music, acoustic resonance and/or vibration have a profound effect on our physical, mental, emotional, relational and spiritual health and wellbeing. We hear with our ears. We listen and feel with our whole body. We attract what we resonate with consciously or not.

It is our intention for this initiative to bring broader awareness, research, education and/or ‘edu-tainment’ experiences that empower consumers to naturally uplift their vibes, health and wellbeing through the healing power of sound, music and acoustic resonance therapies.

We want to ensure that the global wellness industry and consumer understand the health benefits of these therapies for managing stress, pain, enhanced body/mind and spiritual awareness, creativity, productivity, rest, recovery, sleep, sensory integration and more.
