Be soothed and nourished with Sounding.
Sounding is a form of energy work. The intention is to sense that which is within a human body and express it with vocal sound. The vibrational power of sound increases liquidity, creating more vitality and resonance within.
How does vocal Sounding compare to Tibetan Bowls or other forms of sound healing?
All modalities offer a unique way to access your own healing capacity. Because vocal sound comes directly from the heart and soul of a human being, sounding can offer a wider range of expressions than an instrument, and therefore be more precise.
“I’ve not felt this much joy of movement in such a long time! It was exquisite.” ~Martha Holschen, Feldenchrist practitioner
How does Sounding work?
I perceive or ‘read’ what is below the surface, listening deeply to hidden aspects of body and spirit. I seek to express your true self, or essence, as well as places of constriction where past experiences are ‘holding,’ sometimes creating pain or lack of vitality. I do not put sound into your body, nor draw anything out.
Sounding reveals what is there without judgment. Through being reflected and matched, tight places often relax. This release often feels like healing.
Note: Because Sounding expresses a wide range of resonances within, not all sounds are ‘peaceful.’
My training in Sounding
I’m grateful for 3 years of practice and 6 months of in-depth study and collaboration with my mentor and dear friend, Sound Healing Pioneer Vickie Dodd of Sacred Sound Works. Vickie has practiced and taught sound healing and sound energetics for over 50 years. A student of Ida Rolf, Moshe Feldenchrist, Judith Aston and many other Mind-Body-Spirit luminaries; a contemporary and colleague of Jonathan Goldman and others, Vickie brings a rare depth of knowledge of many body and sound modalities.
I am honored to collaborate with Vickie on her upcoming book, “Your Voice is Medicine.” I assisted her teaching practice and offered sounding sessions at her annual Sacred Sound Retreat at NatureBridge Lake Crescent 2015.

COMMENTS about Body & Soul Sessions
“My sound healing session with Christine felt like a journey outside of time and space. As she sang, I relaxed into the currents of feelings and emotions that washed through me like gentle waves. At the end I felt peaceful and cleansed. Afterwards, Christine shared insights with me about what she saw and felt during the session that were helpful and affirming.” ~Leah Green, Founder of The Compassionate Listening Project
“I felt a lot of energy moving through me, and very much at peace.” ~Anne Briggs, Tibetan Bowl practitioner
