Your Health is your most important asset. Treat it as an investment, not an expense!



I first became acquainted with meditation as a practice in the early 90’s although I had already been practicing a form of it in focus groups, which were designed to make you a more productive and successful Realtor.  The groups taught visualization also, which is another aspect of meditation. Because the focus groups understood how powerful our mind is they used visualization or guided meditation, as it is often referred to, as a tool to help us achieve our goals. Our motto was, “If you can see it, you can be it."


Think about an Olympic athlete. They visualize themselves standing on the winners' platform receiving the gold medal (silent meditation). They do this because it feeds their purpose, uplifts their spirits when feeling discouraged and because it is a tool to help create the outcome they desire. Or, a professional golfer who visualizes the course they are about to play and “sees” how they will play each hole.


Oh, I know we’re not Olympic athletes or professional golfers, but we too have goals, situations or specific kinds of relationships we want to create in our lives. We want to be the best we can be. Meditation can be a way to quiet the chatter in our mind and give us the insight to achieve those goals. Meditation helps us handle life’s curveballs and expands creativity, clarity and perspective.


Meditation has been shown time after time to produce very positive effects, both in real-world examples and scientific studies. In my own life meditation has been very effective in learning how to rein in racing thoughts, deal with stress, calm anxiety, gain insight into life situations, set intentions, develop focus and gain a more peaceful perspective. Those are some pretty significant benefits, don't you think? If you experience a short attention span or are easily distracted, meditation can help you develop longer focus and a more mindful approach to daily tasks as well as specific projects.


There are many types of meditation. The most popular and well-known are:


  • Silent Meditation

  • Mantra Meditation

  • Guided Meditation

  • Sound Meditation or Sound Immersion 

  • Walking Meditation

  • Movement Meditation with Yoga or Dance

  • Transcendental Meditation

  • Body Scan Meditation

  • Visualization Meditation

  • Loving Kindness Meditation

One big advantage to meditation is you don’t need any special tools or equipment. It can be done almost anywhere, even in busy, noisy locations.  In fact, those kinds of places are a great place to practice, because you train your mind to go within and disregard the noise and distractions. Just a minute or two of purposeful meditation can be as beneficial as relaxing on a big cushion in a quiet room for an hour.


Here are some third-party links to some helpful articles that describe in greater detail how meditation can be beneficial and how you can overcome some of the 'difficulties' you may run into beginning and developing a meditation practice. 

Don’t get discouraged. It will take regular practice in the beginning, just as learning any new skill does. For me it’s definitely been worth the effort, particularly during those times when I want to go to sleep and my thoughts and emotions are spinning in my head. That’s when the habit of meditation helps rein in those thoughts and allow a more calm and relaxed feeling to take their place. What a relief that is!

Imagine being immersed in beautiful sounds that are healing to your body, mind and soul...


A Sound Immersion is a type of meditation, using sound and vibration to encourage you to turn within and leave the world behind. The sound immersions I create inspire relaxation and tranquility at a profound level. This allows your body to find its natural balance while creating space for insights and creativity.

What does a Sound Immersion look like?

Most people lie down during a Sound Immersion, although some choose to sit in a comfortable chair. Eye pillows can be used to help you feel calmer and heighten your other senses, particularly hearing. 

The room is often dimmed and everything is in place to inspire a peaceful, relaxed atmosphere. My Sound Immersions last about an hour, which may include walking around at the beginning of the session with different kinds of musical instruments which are played over or near your body. These instruments can include tingshas, a rain stick, tuning forks, bells and/or a drum. The Angelic Therapy Harps, crystal bowl and a small gong used are played from one place for the balance of the session. The sounds and vibrations from these instruments are particularly powerful.

The Sound Immersion is a healing session you can experience while resting in a safe and secure place. 

A Sound Immersion is an experience that is unique to each person. As the instruments are played the results are waves of peace, heightened awareness and relaxation of the mind, body and spirit. Some people experience emotional healing, while others achieve great insights into their lives. People often find resolution for emotional issues and a sense of coming home to themselves or gain true acceptance of themselves. Chronic pain can be lessened and a good nights sleep are other positive results.

A Sound Immersion can be an unforgettable experience for those who seek the benefits of improved focus, deep relaxation, rejuvenation and an acceleration of their inward journey for peace and acceptance. Time is suspended as you enter a world of vibration, sensation and sound where remarkable personal insights can be gained. Creativity is unleased and individuals often feel truly, vibrantly alive. Your first Sound Immersion is only the beginning.


My Sound Immersion meditation is offered throughout the Roanoke Valley, in a variety of locations, including homes, conferences, community centers, etc...

A Sound Immersion is generally more effective if it is conducted indoors but can still be performed in parks and other outdoor venues. My Sound Immersions are very popular at Festivals, Markets and Fairs, as well as Weekend Retreats and Conventions to set the tone for the event. A Sound Immersion can be particularly powerful at the opening and conclusion of special gatherings.


Healing Groups

Sound Immersions can be tailored for special interest groups, friends from work or a club of your choice and start with as few as five people. You can choose to have a Sound Immersion in your own home or other pre-arranged location.

Special Celebrations

Commitment ceremonies, birthdays, house and land warmings, blessings for buildings or new projects, christenings, and weddings – contact me and I’ll be delighted to create a unique Sound Immersion experience for you, your friends and your loved ones.
