Instruments at Gentle Earth

The temple bell stops but I still hear the sound coming out of the flowers.

~Matsuo Basho

Gentle Earth Sound Therapy & Holistic Wellness LLC is deeply honored to have 77 remarkable and beautiful handcrafted instruments to use during Vibrational Sound Therapy (VST), Bath Meditation, and Gong Immersion.  Each was carefully and thoughtfully selected with the above quote at the forefront of my mind. I am fully aware that the vibration and sound they produce will resonate deep throughout the universe long after my human capability ceases to recognize it. 

 

My bowls and instruments are not just messengers of deep relaxation and peace but a remarkable connection to the craftsman who created them, their families, the earth from which they garnered the resources, etc. Placing my hands over them I can often feel the energy from the universe to which it is so deeply intertwined. I engage in deep mindful reflection over adding new instruments to my vast collection. For example, when considering a new bowl, I will gently hold it, take a deep slow breath and invite it to sing with a soft measured strike; allowing the vibration to flow through my hands, my chest, fill my ears, and wrap around my heart. Exhaling, I pause and then repeat... over and over again. Patiently waiting to see if it speaks to me on a profoundly personal level. Only then do I then consider adding it to my studio.    

 

I believe that each bowl and gong can be seen as a great teacher. They carry the Buddhist Voidness teachings which purport that nothing exists independently of anything else. Each note from these sacred instruments contains all other notes and therein lies their magic.  Although possessing a variety of harmonics, the fundamental vibration is rooted in the Sanskrit mantra OM. This is the vibration that our brains are entrained with. This primordial sound is the perfection of the universe. The ensuing sympathetic resonance between the brain and instrument reawakens the intrinsic blissful self in us.
