Our beautiful and serene studio in West Seattle incorporates intentional Asian and Northwest Coastal Native American design characteristics and carefully implemented healing properties. Reminiscent of a longhouse from the outside, fragrant cedar trim and a thunderbird transformation mask made by Makah artist Mikah McCarty complement the inside.
With a resonating chamber and healing stone mandala installed beneath the floor, the structure was uniquely designed to maximize acoustical properties and healing potential. The studio houses instruments from around the world including five Paiste Planet gongs, four rare Sound Creation gongs, and a custom-made Balinese Gamelan nipple gong. There are dozens of handmade Himalayan Singing bowls which were specially-selected by Sha'ari and lovingly carried from Nepal.
