Sound Healing Tour stops in Snohomish May 18
Kristen and Amitabhan’s “Sound Healing” tour through the Pacific Northwest will make their fifth stop at Yoga Circle in Snohomish, 707 Pine Ave., on May 18 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. The pair recently completed a tour of Yoga Studios and Healing Centers in Northern California.
Each “Sound Healing” event has two components – a chance to deeply rest in the healing vibration of various instruments, and a chance to creating healing sound from within ones own body. Kristen will share an hour of Sound Healing – using Tibetan and crystal quartz “singing” bowls, bells, planetary chimes, a healing gong, and other soothing percussion instruments.
Many people find these instruments to be powerfully transformational. As one attendee recently stated, “Every cell in my body hummed with the vibrations of the singing bowls and a sense of peace and calm overwhelmed me…” Kristen will also lead some simple breathing exercises and a guided meditation.
Amitabhan will lead Kirtan – call-and-response chants from India. Kirtan is an invigorating practice that not only energizes the body, but also brings people to a state of deep relaxation. “When Amitabhan sings, the celestial muses listen. He sings from the heart and evokes peace in those who listen or sing with him.” – Dakini Yoga Studio.
Kristen is based in the Olympia area, where she has been sharing yoga and the healing arts for many years. Her “Healing Sound” concerts and workshops have been offered at a venues ranging from Retreat Centers to Correctional Institutions in Washington, Oregon, California and Arizona.
Amitabhan is an award-winning songwriter based in Northern California. He travels extensively through the US and into Canada, and shared his music at over 150 events in the last year. He has appeared at events with many well-known spiritual teachers, in addition to offering his own concerts at Yoga Studios and Healing Centers around the country.
