Influencer #2: Dr. Dream

I had the opportunity to be a sound bowl angel at one of the Dr. Dream’s tour of love in Atlanta, GA. Dr. Dream goes from city to city spreading the message of love and healing through singing bowls. He carries 33 to 333 bowls with him during the tour. It is a great experience to see the energy moving inside the room when the singing bowls are being played and Dr. Dream is working his magic through the audience.

There are many ways and many influencers who can bring the magic of sound into your life. It does not have to be just singing bowls or gongs. From drums, kirtan, flutes to tibetan bowls and tuning forks, there is a wide open arena of what instrument can help you heal and connect with your soul. 

But you do not always need fancy instruments. When it comes to sound, every sound healer recommends to use the most powerful instrument of all – our vocal chords.
