    Sound Healing – song and gong

    Sound Healing – a therapeutic wave of vibration

    “I have never experienced anything quite like that. I felt I was swept away on a great river. People and places I haven’t thought about for years suddenly appeared and gave me insights into my current life path, career and family life. I will definitely be back for more!”                                                                                      Jacob, 59, Business Owner

    After studying with the Gong Master Don Conreaux in the UK in 2008 and in NZ in 2009, Barbara now combines her voice with the vibrational power of the Paiste Gong. The ‘rolls royce’ of gongs, these precision made instruments create a sound healing experience so vast you feel as if you, ‘dive into’ the sound.Contact Soundworkz for details of regular ‘song and gong’ baths and upcoming concert events.

    Listening to native instruments helps us open up to the unconscious. As you drift away into the sound you find your our own wise inner voice. In this quiet inner place the inner council we do not hear in our normal busy every-day lives is revealed.

    Barbara Ann plays native american flutes, south american whistles, African drums, Australian didjeridoo and Tibetan bowls. Indigenous instrument concert performances can be arranged.

    Sessions last for 30 mins and cost $30.00 + GST
