Through listening [hear] and presence [here] we may identify and observe the root cause of ailments. The sciences of sound and yoga are applied as practical and sustaining modalities to unlock, clear and balance, and our approach is influenced by Ayurvedic principles.
Listening is receptivity, utilizing all senses and breath.
Presence is experiencing the moment with clarity.
Science is systematic study of the world through observation and experiment.
Sound, ayurvedic and yogic practices were developed over thousands of years ago by individuals with exceptional levels of receptivity, clarity and mastery over their minds and bodies. Their direct [experiential] observations of the effects of frequencies [sound, light], nature [herbs, elements, seasons] and self-control [yoga, meditation, pranayama] are becoming more appreciated and increasingly measurable today.
The approach of heare is that by acknowledging fluctuations in the body and mind, understanding connections between external and internal environments and having the willingness to transform, we can begin to unravel conditions instead of being consumed by them.
I avoid the word healing [ex ‘sound healing’ and ‘Tibetan Bowl healing’] in reference to our sound sessions. For many people, ‘healing’ [particularly with these less tangible forms of treatment] implies something lofty and magical, which can conjure either expectations or doubt. Additionally, ’receiving/ giving a sound healing’ assumes the client plays a passive role in the process.
An effective, grounded practitioner clearly observes and acts in the present without attachment to the results. Naturally my purpose is to assist in healing, but there are uncontrollable factors [one being the readiness of the client..], and focusing on an end result distracts from objectively hearing nuances of the imbalance.
A receptive, willing client who is ready [or almost..] to access and release old trauma, habits, etc and impart lifestyle and mindset changes can foster lasting change and deep healing. Results can range from relieving chronic pain to rediscovering self-worth.
While the practitioner creates the space [internal, and external] and helps to guide the client, the actual healing is done by the client. Even by simply laying there and being open to the proverbial process, they are allowing stress to release, their subconscious to work, and not resisting what may arise.
