Rediscover the power of listening and bring balance to your life.

Everything from vast star systems to microscopic particles moves in vibration. By opening to these interconnected layers of vibration, we can attune our inner and outer awareness to promote connection, creativity, and harmony.

“You are quite gifted at creating sonic textures which help lull one’s interior life towards a spirit of nuance and quiet.”
—Nicholas C.

Course

Acousmatic Therapy is a six-module, audio-only program for people dealing with screen fatigue, addiction, and overwhelm. The course invites you to set aside time once a week for listening, rest, and contemplation. By using acousmatic sound, we can rest our eyes while reconnecting with our ability to listen. The course consists of 6 audio-only modules, each pairing a guided meditation with music, soundscapes, and other therapeutic sounds. Think of them as mini-retreats from your daily routine, where you can focus on yourself—and your relationship to the world around you.
