Sound healing. It sounds interesting, but what is it? Who does it? How does it work? Is it just mumbo jumbo?
Garth Robertson, who practices sound healing out of Pittsboro, gets asked these questions often. In his Nov. 5 presentation, he will explain how the frequencies of various sounds, in conjunction with intention, can help restore the body and spirit to optimal health.
Garth plans to cover:
- The history and modern use of sound healing
- The science and benefits of sound healing
- How sound healing is used across the globe
- Some of the instruments used in sound healing
Garth says there is a bit of “magic” involved in the process of sound healing, and he has found that giving people a more solid understanding of it allows for a deeper experience before he begins a sound healing “ceremony.” This is especially true, he says, for science-minded people and others who may have the propensity to question what’s happening during the process.
Garth will discuss recent studies that show how sound and vibration influence the body by allowing for deeper brain states. He’ll explain how those states assist in healing.
Expect to come away with a better understanding of how sound and intention can help you and others. “Perhaps you may even be curious enough to come have your own experience with sound and your own personal healing,” he says.
As part of his Sacred Sound Ceremony business, Garth uses a variety of tones and frequencies from a wide range of instruments. The instruments originate from all over the world. “I feel gratitude every time I get to work with them,” he notes.
Garth’s sound healing ceremonies may include the use of vocal toning, chimes, sansula, Tibetan singing bowls, crystal bowls, gong, chacapa, frame drum, shruti box, harmonica, rattles, overtone singing, chanting, guitar, tuning forks and flute.
For the program, Garth will demonstrate sounds he creates with about four of those instruments and comment on other instruments that he often uses, including the gong and didgeridoo.
More about Garth
Garth has been making music and using sound as a modality for self-healing for more than 20 years. Throughout his journey, he has received the message that sound can be used for physical, mental and spiritual healing.
“Song can do more than excite the nervous system with danceable energy or help you revisit a cherished memory,” he says. “It can be used to help move energy through the body and alleviate stagnation and blockage.”
A meditative trip to Peru solidified his decision to step onto a sound-healing path. He had plenty of time to sit with his thoughts in the jungle, and they always came back to his offering this service. During that time, he was able to observe and learn from a strong linage of curanderos, or native shamans, who heal with sound.
