Below is a list of the types of modalities offered.  "I" indiciates individual; "G" indicates group.  

Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (I)
Often times, troubling or traumatic experiences get locked up in our memories, leaving us upset and unable to function rationally even years after the original occurrence.  EMDR works with memory pathways to disentangle and resolve these hurts, helping us to integrate our experiences and move forward.  Sha'ari is a trained EMDR practitioner.  

Healing Gong Meditations (I, G)

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.

The Bonny Method of Guided Imagery & Music (I, G)
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 best delivered as an intensive series to quickly get to the heart of healing. A meaningful private or group session probing the depths of one's imaginal realms with the support of an experienced facilitator using specially-designed music. This is a great option for people who find it difficult to talk about their lives and issues.  

Jewish Shamanic Healing (I)
Using ancient Hebraic methods and tribal incantations, Sha'ari offers powerful experiential healings.

Counseling/Talk Therapy (I, G)

Having someone to really listen to you can provide a breakthrough to occur. For depression, anxiety, grief, life transitions and relationship issues.  This can be a perfect entre into the world of healing.

Sound Therapy (I) 

Packages of one, three or five individual sessions available featuring singing bowls, rattles, gongs and more.  Excellent for mind/body and stress-related issues.  No music experience necessary.

MARI Mandala Assessment

Using the meanings suggested by archetypal images to reflect a constellation of your current life and direction back to you in a colorful and creative way.  This is a great option for people who are curious about what art & self-expression can tell us.
