INSTRUMENTS AT GENTLE EARTH

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

[Matsuo Basho]

Sound Therapy

Gentle Earth Sound Therapy is deeply honored to have 139 beautifully handcrafted instruments to use during private sound therapy sessions and group community events.  Each was carefully and thoughtfully selected with the above quote at the forefront of our minds. We are fully aware that the vibration and sound they produce will resonate deep throughout the universe long after our human capability ceases to recognize it. 

 

Our 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 our hands over them, we can often feel the energy from the universe to which it is so deeply intertwined. We engage in deep mindful reflection over adding new ones to our vast collection. For example, when considering a new bowl, we 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 our hands, our chest, fill our ears, and wrap around our hearts. Exhaling, we pause and then repeat... over and over again. Patiently waiting to see if it speaks to us on a profoundly personal level. Only then do we consider adding it to our practice.    

 

We believe that instruments such as singing bowls and gong can be seen as great teachers. They carry the Buddhist Voidness teachings which purport that nothing exists independently of anything else. The notes from these sacred instruments contain 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. 

 

Below is the list of instruments that we currently use in our practice. Our hope is that they assist you in finding deep peace, relaxation, and inner tranquility.
