In partnership since 2011 and individually working with Sound as a form of healing since 2000, Tom & Abby have based their life work on offering unusual healing experiences that are modeled on creating sounds with instruments from different places and cultures of this planet, as well as from their own inspired and imagination. They create the “Sound Track” and each participant projects to this their own private movie. As is the case when watching any movie, certain feelings and emotions are awoken which can be confronted and accepted by the participant. From our many years experience it seems like the participants re-connect with many repressed emotions. The realisation of the chain of cause and effect brings greater empathy and understanding to the situation, the need or lack of.
This a very therapeutic experience. Participants often describe a powerful emotional restart after such an experience. For most of these sessions Tom & Abby use their custom made 150cm element gongs. With the aid of the massive dense layers of sound of the gong overlapping each other, filling the space to such a, level that each cell of the physical body feels the power of the sound, something that we call ‘cellular restart’ can occur. Bi-neural flutes of both Slavic and South American traditions along with other unusual instruments, synchronise the brain and in some cases help clean the auditory senses. The human voice, Handpan or Santur open the Heart of the participant to feelings. When using a variety of Nature Sounds, the experience becomes almost 5 dimentional, beyond what we know. In this sense the experience of the Concerts help us make visible the invisible.
