Healing Gong Meditations

Paiste planet gongs, Tibetan singing bowls, crystal bowls, rattles and other instruments facilitate change and stimulate vibration that leads to a healthful state of resonance.  Each gong has a different character and sends a different harmonic profile. Sessions are customized for participants and include information about the gongs, a description of the specific healing properties of the Hummingbird Studio and a uniquely improvised meditation experience.  Plenty of explanation is provided for newcomers.

Sound Therapy Classes
Learn how to use resonant instruments, tuning forks and other tools to enhance health and wellness. 

Kavanah Gong Meditations
Shorter and more focused than the Healing Gong groups, we start with setting intention (kavanah in Hebrew) followed by a brief blessing or chant and then diving directly into the gong meditation.  These groups are designed for participants who have prior experience with gong meditations.

Total Gong Immersion Workshops

Half day workshops which offer progressively deeper gong-induced altered states and an opportunity for personal growth and profound well-being.

Custom Gong Groups & Parties
A unique way to observe birthdays and other celebratory events.

Sound Enhanced Weddings and Ceremonies
Contact us about creating a lovely, resonant environment for your special occasion.  Sha'ari can officiate weddings in WA!

The Bonny Method of Guided Imagery & Music
Developed by the late visionary music therapist, Helen Bonny, this form of therapy taps into your own deep wellspring of imagery while being enhanced & supported by specialized designed music selections.  Sessions are intensive at two hours long and quickly get to the heart of healing.   

Jewish Shamanic Healing
Using ancient methods and tribal incantations, Sha'ari offers reduced rates for these powerful individual healings while she is still in training.
