<<Experiential Supportive Music Imagery>>


What is Supportive Music and Imagery (SMI)

When we listen to music, our subconscious mind will sometimes project images, abstract thoughts, and some memories, or sometimes there might be nothing. The Supportive Music and Imagery method works with one's positive resources rather than one's issues and problems. The positive resource can be anything that a client has/had, whatever has a positive influence on a client. Any experience that a person feels good about and nourished from can be used as a positive resource. It can be as simple as a favorite coffee break one can rest and enjoy, or a warm hug from one's mother. The focus is not on the external reality, the activity, thing and/or a person, but it is on the internal quality that one feels from these. Not the coffee break itself but the quality of the private, enjoyable moment during which one feels in touch with oneself.


What to expect during the session:

The process will involve music listening and drawing and will end with an open sharing session. You will be indulging in quiet moments for you to explore your inner self. I hope that by the end of the session, the experience will be able to inspire you to use music as part of your self-care routine.

<<Singing Bowl Meditation>>


Join us for a singing bowl to rejuvenate your soul and body! Science has long recognized that everything including we are made of vibrating molecules of energy, and where there is a movement of energy there is vibration. It is an effective and proven modality that uses sound vibration to help reduce stress, alter consciousness and create a deep sense of peace and well-being.Sound & vibration has also been shown to be a vital part of the healing process as the human body has a resonant frequency or energetic signature, that is woven from the many elements of the body (water, minerals, etc.) and creates an orchestrated symphony of tones that make up the physical form.
