We are all looking for ways to improve our health, find more balance, and acquire new perspective in our lives and my goal is to contribute to your path towards wellness.
I've spent the past 20 years performing, recording and producing music, most of it professionally. Over the past seven years my pursuit has broadened and I began seeking out how music and, more importantly, how sound can dramatically shift our perspective, raise our consciousness, and even heal us. After all, sound precedes music—pure frequency becomes music through intention, the same way that consciousness becomes reality through the intention and expression of words and actions.
In 2011 I began studying shamanism and intuitive healing which eventually led me to a sound therapy certification program at the Open Center where I learned how to incorporate all my life experiences: of being a musician, working through my own personal challenges and my exploration of shamanism, combined with the long history of cultures around the world using sound to invoke healing and expand consciousness. I was fortunate to study with John Beaulieu, Sylvia Nakkach, and Ginger Clarkson, along with other great teachers in this field of sound therapy.
In 2014 I began NTM Sound Healing as a way to share my knowledge and experience with others and began offering sound therapy treatments to individuals and sound baths for the community. Currently, I lead regular sound bath meditations at Sky Ting Yoga, Brooklyn Zen Center, and Brooklyn Yoga Club and have joined on as faculty at MNDFL Meditation for 2017. I also facilitate workshops and sound baths for organizations and companies as part of wellness initiatives and am a public speaker specializing in conversations on sound therapy as a path to mindfulness and the art of listening. As of Spring 2016 I have joined the Six Senses Luxury Resorts as a visiting practitioner where I'll be traveling to their properties around the world to provide sound therapy to clients.
We all have natural, intuitive ways our bodies react to sound and how our voices produce sound. With a little direction we can all uncover better ways to express ourselves- whether it be to release stress, reduce anxiety, lower our heart rate or strengthen our immune system—these can change our physiology and our whole being.
My objective is not only to provide a relaxing environment, but also to teach daily practices that people can do on their own to continue the work we've done together.
