Sound. Primordial manifesting. Healing and transporting. The music of the spheres providing the foundation of our experience. The word.
Traveling with the sound healer Tom Kenyon in Bhutan brought the totality of sound’s power to bear on my life. In conference rooms and temples, the pure resonance and connections of his tonings were astounding.
The nuns pictured above too held us transported with their chants & singing.
Every culture uses sound and music and has a need for these expressions. Drumming, toning, chanting, singing….
Tom Kenyon’s work as a therapist brought him initially to the exploration of the potential of the power in sound for healing for his patients. This exploration moved into deeper and deeper realms… his five octave voice is a miracle. The sounds, toning, music, and chant seem to come through him, not from him.
“I become like a tuning fork to the information that is coming through me, in shamanism they call it being the ‘hollow reed’…”
“It’s ok to look up to make sure there’s only one person up here making these strange sounds. But what’s important is what’s happening inside YOU. That’s where the power is.”
A new film about his work, called “Song of the New Earth” is making the rounds of screenings around the country.

And here’s a link to his website for a list of seminars and some free downloads:
You may not embrace, understand, or believe all that is contained there, but if you can allow an opening to healing and connection while absorbed in the sound, you may find an expansion of your perception, and find help with healing and connections.

I often listen to Tom Kenyon tapes for meditation and for healing and hope they may be helpful to you. As the quote from Tom states below, I’ve seen miracles happen with sound.
“I’ve seen miracles happen with sound…”
“Each celestial body, in fact each and every atom, produces a particular sound on account of its movement, its rhythm or vibration. All these sounds and vibrations form a universal harmony in which each element, while having it’s own function and character, contributes to the whole.”
-Pythagoras (569-475 BC)
“Do you know our soul is composed of harmony”
-Leonardo da Vinci
