Fridays Open House Open Heart

9/3/2018 UPDATE! This offering is currently on hold!

A couple weeks ago, I held an open house. It was so well received I am going to continue the practice to make the bowls available to people seeking a sanctuary from the daily stresses of life…or to just be. 

You are cordially invited to drop in to my studio every Friday between 9am and Noon!

I’m calling it Open House, Open Heart. Come in and meditate, sit with the bowls, learn how to play a bowl, shop bowls, have a cup of tea, talk to me….whatever you need… my door is open! Open your heart and take time to nurture your wellbeing. 

Open House, Open Heart will be available every Friday indefinitely, unless I have something else listed on the Events page. I will keep it in my schedule on the website and let you know if I can’t make a week.

at 293 Central Park West, between 89th & 90th

recorded meditation featuring Tibetan singing bowls

I’m thrilled to share this recorded meditation series from Wendy Parr, an award winning vocal artist, producer, songwriter, coach and more! She asked me to create a healing soundscape with the singing bowls to accompany her guided meditations for singers and performers. Anyone who is looking to present their work/healing/service to an audience can benefit from these meditations. 

I’ve facilitated sound healing concerts and accompanied many yoga classes with sound meditation using Tibetan singing bowls, but it was a new and exciting experience to go into a recording studio. I spent time with her recorded meditations weeks in advance, so when I went into the sound studio I could follow my guidance and synchronize with Wendy’s intentions in the meditation. And like a singing bowl healing, when the meditation focuses on the heart, I am playing the heart bowl, when the meditation speaks about the throat, I am playing the throat bowl. These recordings are truly healing and activating!

Please check out Wendy Parr, her variety of services and, of course, this meditation bundle:

Melinda’s Studio

May 12, 2016

I honestly had no idea what to expect when I was invited to facilitate a group meditation deep in the woods of the Catskill Mountains.  Carting my bowls up the drive, I’m greeted by the statuesque Melinda, her friendly dog and a brown rabbit hanging out near the front door. The rabbit seems oddly relaxed, vacillating between twitching and stillness. It’s staring at me and I’m curious as to why it’s not bolting with an active barking dog so close by.

“I think it’s the same one I saved”, says Melinda, as we both stand watching the rabbit watching us.

About a year ago, she spotted a rabbit caught in a fence on her property, its leg wrapped and tangled in wire. She managed to tenderly free it, without injury. Ever since then Melinda has become accustomed to its frequent, fearless visits into her garden and on the back porch. While setting up the bowls inside, I watch as the bunny stares at me again, now through the glass of the studio door.

This is a good omen. This is going to be a special night.

I could have stayed in her studio for hours, days…The silence was delicious. In every corner and crevice were layers upon layers of texture, paint, simplicity, complexity, handwritten messages, paper, brushes, beads, teeth, and rocks; laying among found objects haphazardly placed just so.

Being here brings out a deep sadness as everywhere I look I’m reminded of a friendship lost long ago. In this same moment, in an instant of a breath, I welcome the peace of the birth of a new kinship, a connection freshly formed.

As Melinda watches on, another part of me is tenderly freed.
