People often ask me how I found myself interested in healing through sound, horses and movement. Well, several years ago I had the opportunity to learn the art of sound healing from a woman named Pim, the owner of Buddha Happy in Wilton Manors. Pim is from Thailand and she has practiced this type of healing for many years. She shared a story with me about a friend of hers who had been very ill and found himself in hospital. After not getting any better he reached out to her asking if she would come for a visit and bring her singing bowls. She obliged and came nearly every day cleansing him with a sound bath. He eventually recovered. Now whether this was due to the singing bowls or the human connection Pim provided we will never know, yet this sweet story inspired me to learn more.
I have shared the gift of sound and vibration with many of my clients leading them through guided meditation, sound bathing, and rhythmic movement. The most amazing encounter experienced by a client was a woman in a facility that served individuals experiencing homelessness. She suffered from a terrible side-effect from medication called Tardive Dyskinesia which is a disorder that causes involuntary movements throughout the body, similar to a tic. She could not stop moving from head to toe. On this day I was facilitating a group on mindfulness and was sharing the singing bowls at the facility when she approached me. I explained and asked if she would like to see what would happen. She stood in front of me, her body writhing, her face was contorting uncontrollably, her tongue darted in and out of her mouth. I began to tap the mallet on one of the bowls as I slowly moved it from her toes to her head and down the back side of her body. With one pass she stopped moving, grounded. I witnessed a smile for the first time and tears began to fall from her eyes as she stood in her stillness.
