What to Expect for Assisted-Living Centers

This is all about clearing the mind of chatter and inducing a gentle meditation for the residents. It is a calming experience that can help with anxiety and depression. Like watching a gently flowing river we listen to the flowing sound tones much in the same way. Also, the singing bowls used has a listening experience much like the sounding of giant wind chimes.

• The 1 hour session can happen in an open, common area, where you do other programs. I ask to have a table there to stage my sound tools for the presentation if possible. Also that the lights be low or off during the session.

• The group sound therapy sessions use singing bowls, bells, chimes and flutes. 

• For people who are hard of hearing, I walk around so they can feel the vibration of the bowls, as that is the most healing aspect, the body and our individual energy fields are affected by the bowls frequency vibrations. 

• It is expected that people will fall asleep. That is part of the process and fine.

• I don’t generally use microphones or PA system, at the moment. It is all acoustic sounds tools.

• I ask that people be comfortable if they can and close their eyes during the sound session.

• For employees of the facilities, I also offer private one on one sessions with direct contact with the bowls resonations and a more intent work individually.
