Sound Therapy Supported Care
Nurturing yourself is not selfish. It is essential to your well-being.
Kintsukuroi "golden repair"
Because difficult and traumatic experiences live in the physical body, you can empower yourself to feel greater agency over your experience by using simple practices to re-wire the mind and body.
Gentle Earth Sound Therapy currently facilitates sound therapy supported care within a group class setting over the course of 8 weeks. Each session consists of an opening breathwork and mindfulness exercise followed by immersive sound therapy designed to balance, regulate, and soothe the nervous system promoting healing in individuals experiencing the symptoms of chronic and traumatic stress, including those suffering the effects of anxiety and depression. You need not identify as a trauma-affected person to attend our classes - they are open to any and all who want to join!
As a dedicated Trauma-Informed practitioner, I facilitate under the foundational philosophy that embraces the core principles of safety, trustworthiness, choice, collaboration, and empowerment. I am proud to offer this group class in a safe, inclusive, and sacred integrative studio that supports post-traumatic growth.
Some of the many benefits of Sound Therapy can include:
• Support in working through past physical and emotional traumas

Practioner note: The art of Kintsukuroi, or "golden repair", was born hundreds of years ago in Japan. When a piece of pottery breaks, artisans repair the cracks with precious metals, like gold, making the ordinary piece of pottery even more valuable and beautiful than before. As a philosophy, Kintsukuroi treats breakage and repair as part of the important history of an object rather than something to disguise. It focuses not on replacement, but on awe, reverence, and restoration. Without our choosing, experiences in life can bring us to a place of damage or trauma. This suffering can often leave behind emotional and physical scars. Over time, I endeavor to show each person that I work with what I see in the scars they carry... an inner beauty, courage, and resilience that represents a deeply personal and individual transformational journey.
