The music of the spheres echoes across the infinity of space. We listen. In the stillness we hear, are touched, healed, and soothed. With steady awareness we open ourselves to tones that resonated deep and deeper within us. Each tone makes its journey into deep places within the soul. They align us to a Divine harmony and invite our response.
Wendy, with Gemstone crystal and tibetan bowls and Cecy with crystal invite you into a prayer beyond words.
You will discover the power and quality of your own voice. You will learn and practice simple chants to pray when there are no words. In the pure sound that hangs in the air, you may release aches and tensions of a lifetime.
Sounds produced by the bowls can help purify and raise the vibration of the body. Sacred singing, mantras, toning and giving voice to one’s unfettered emotion can move us toward higher states of well-being.
Here is Sound and Silence schedule for your review.
I have taught yoga, pilates, energy work and other spiritual workshops, but the Sound workshop was one of the most incredibly nurturing things I have ever done.
I didn’t have to study or take notes. I didn’t have to DO anything. I merely had to BE there and RECIEVE! That was a huge blessing for me! I felt so cradled in loving, healing sound vibrations that allowed me to go within and heal.
That in itself, allows me to become a better healing vessel for the world, to BE the healing presence for others.
It was a very powerful experience that can’t be defined very well. It must be experienced to fully. Exquisite!

I have a new song in my heart created by the singing bowls, and the door has been opened for me to work diligently on my spiritual development. I am grateful for the Christine Center and the environment that it creates for such a profound transformation. I have no doubt that I will be back, until then I will continue to discover my Name, and ask God what He would have me do.

I just wanted to tell you how powerful I found the Praying with Sacred Sound retreat last weekend. I really felt something shift and felt the vibrations for days afterwards. The challenge, of course, is weaving what was learned into a practice. Fortunately, this is all a process so I can keep improving.
