What we're about

Hello and welcome! My name is Michelle and I am a Level 4 certified and licensed Vibrational Sound Therapy (VST) practitioner through the Vibrational Sound Association. I am happy to create an experience of deep relaxation for you, using vibrational sound bowl therapy. VST facilitates a relaxed sleep state where your body activates its own natural healing abilities and your mind engages creative thought and imagery, intuitive guidance and inner awareness, and higher states of consciousness.

The events posted here will be centered around my VST work via sound baths, pop-up bowl sessions, off-site bowl sessions in natural settings, and festivals where participants can experience on and off body bowl work.  

These events may be fee'd, or by donation and each meetup posted will include those details so there are no surprises. *Please be sure you read the refund/cancellation policy before registering for an event in any group on MeetUp. Late cancellations and "no shows" are a big problem throughout MeetUp and our group policies are strictly adhered to in order to respect both event organizers and participant's time and contributions.  

If you wish to learn more about individual sessions with me, please visit my website for session types and prices.

***What's so special about the bowls I use?  ***For sound baths, I use both traditional singing bowls and Zen Therapeutic Tibetan singing bowls, which are different from traditional Tibetan or Himalayan singing bowls because their design focus is for maximum vibration. My private sessions are 100% on-body bowl work, and part of my sound baths include on-body bowl work for each participant, in which I use only the Zen Therapeutic bowls. They are the first singing bowls in the world created specifically for vibrational sound therapy, engineered for vibration and sustained vibration lasting far longer than most traditional singing bowls. Not only are they designed for maximum, sustained vibration but also for directing the bowl’s vibration down and into your body (vs. singing bowls designed for enhancing and projecting sound outward). However, I carefully chose each of my bowls for their vibration, resonance, and sound. Each bowl has its own vibration into your body along with a soothing sound and pace for a relaxing, effective experience. It’s hard to deny the natural power of the sound produced by these beautiful instruments and you will fully appreciate the effect of their sound quality and powerful vibrations during your session.

Experiencing these bowls on or around your body will move you into a state of profound relaxation. The vibrational energy of the bowls facilitates the deep alpha, theta, and delta states of rest which activate your body’s own healing abilities and higher states of consciousness.

I hope to meet you soon to share the experience of vibrational sound bowl therapy! In sound vibes, your happy-bowl-lucky VST practitioner, 

Michelle :)

Upcoming events (4+)

Sound Bath Meditation

Needs a location

$20.00

Join us for this deeply relaxing experience as an easy and inviting way to take care of your wellness. Feel the sound and vibrational energy of our Himalayan singing bowls and hand-crafted ZEN therapeutic bowls flow through you, relaxing your mind, body and soul into deeper meditative states.

The calm sound and gentle pace of the bowls will help move your mind into a meditative state and your body into a deep rest state, facilitating your body’s own natural healing abilities physically, mentally, and/or spiritually.

There are many physical, mental, and spiritual benefits to experience as reported by clients, however VST (vibrational sound therapy) is most often used for:

  • Quickly introducing deep relaxation and meditative states
  • Reducing depression and sleep issues
  • Easing blockages and tension
  • Reducing stress
  • Raising focus, and gaining a clear mind
  • Calming the mind, body, and spirit in conjunction
  • Boosting Creativity
  • Brain Entrainment
  • Connecting to states of higher consciousness

What to expect: sound baths are intimate in-studio, small group gatherings (up to 6 people). Sound baths begin with a brief guided group grounding visualization followed immediately by a group sound bath. Sound bath concludes with individual bowl-on-body vibrational healing (VST) with a ZEN therapeutic sound bowl for each participant, followed by a short closing meditation.

Wear comfortable clothing. Registration is required. Space is very limited.

Plant Meditation: Ancient Creosote (OFF-SITE)

Needs a location

$10.00

A special experience out in nature, accompanied with sound healing instruments, guided by the environment, the elements and intention for deeply connecting to the surrounding natural landscape.

Immerse yourself in the peaceful sands of a local desert location to meditate with a plant species that claims the title as one of the oldest living organisms on the planet. For example, the famous King Clone, located in the central Mojave Desert north of the Coachella Valley is currently 11,700 years old. Learn how the desert creosote gets this distinction and more about this hardy native plant as we connect with its energy here on the valley floor. What will with creosote bush share with you?

What to expect: Short walk (~5 minute) in sandy desert to site. We will be sitting or lying on the ground. Meet the creosote, a sensory experience. Short sound bath to prepare and ask/receive permission for your private meditation with your chosen plant. Reflection/sharing. Registration limited to maintain low impact group nature practice/etiquette. Highly recommend bringing water, hat, wearing sturdy closed-toe shoes, and a blanket for sitting. Please arrive a few minutes early to check-in and sign the off-site waiver.

Requested $10 donation for this event.

Location in Palm Desert, specific location provided upon registration.
