Visiting Master Experience: Sonic Alchemy: Sound Meditation & Vibroacoustic Therapy

We are pleased to announce our next Visiting Master experience will be sound journeys with musician, Michelle Pirret.

Similar to the frequencies of a musical instrument, we often go out of tune. Cellular disharmony becomes illness. Michelle’s methodology known as The Sonic Leap®™, assists in eliminating internal discord with the use of directed frequency utilized around the body. Brain entrainment is a tool that allows the recipient to “leap over” what may be hindering their progress energetically. Binaural and harmonic frequencies from specialized overtone-emitting instruments synchronize the brain and leave the auditory sense stimulated. By replicating elemental sounds found in nature, this completely acoustic experience becomes multi-dimensional, helping make visible what is unseen. What results is a shift in the energetics of the body, a clarity of connection to one’s intuition and the expansion of consciousness. The experience triggers Mindfulness – aimed at bringing one to the present moment, softening the critical mind and self-judgment of the past or future.

The entire event will take place in the Garden Terrace from June 19 through June 27, 2022.
