Charlie has been working on a new project. He built a Kantele for me. What is a Kantele? It is a 10 string Finnish Zither. A stringed instrument that can be plucked or strummed and many times is used as an accompaniment for singing. This is the first of several instruments he is building for me. A harp, monochord, and native american flutes are all in the come soon.
I have always wanted a harp and love the idea of stringed intruments. I have never played a harp before so had no idea if I woud find it difficult or natural.
I was both pleasantly surprised and greatly pleased to find that I have a natural affinity for this instrument. It excites me with the possibilities of the new instruments to come and how I can use them in sound healing.
It is such a pretty instrument and Charlie did a wonderful job building it. The sound is light and airy with a pleasing pure tone. I can see stringed instruments becoming a large part of the relaxing Sound Healing sessions.
I use several instruments for a sound journey session. A large portion of most sessions use singing bowls. I have three types of singing bowls. A 2 octave set of crystal singing bowls, a hand hammered Himalayan metal bowl set, and several Zen Vibrapoint metal bowls used for targeted vibration work. All the bowls can be used on the body except the ones made from crystal. I also use several types of drums, handpans, stringed instruments, and a gong. I hope to add a smaller harp and monochord soon.
I am currently scheduling for single person session and 2 person couple sessions. A single person session is 50-60 minutes and is specific for that person’s current needs. We discuss what is bothering them and what they would like to try to target for that day. A couples session is 60-70 minutes and is a bit more of a group focus. A couples session is defined as two people. It can be a couple in a relationship, 2 best friends, parent and child, 2 siblings, grandparent and child, or 2 strangers. It is wonderful for a special anniversary or date night as well as a friend night out event.
Single person session (50-60 min) is $60.00.
Couple Two person session (60-70 min) is $100.00.
