Heather Interviewed about Sound Healing

So excited to announce that my interview with Daniel Coates from ‘The Sound Healing Podcast’ is now up and available. Daniel and I have a chat about sounds for healing in general, my sound healing ensemble Harmonic Project, and I also talk more about the work I do at Flinders Medical Centre, Adelaide, with the Sounds for Relaxation Program.

 

Love Heather 😀

Here’s a message from Daniel himself…

“This week on my Sound Healing Podcast I have a special guest, my very good friend and amazing Sound Healer and Singer/Songwriter Heather Frahn. Heather and I discussed many aspects of Sound in Healing including the use of Sound Healing in hospitals and studies that have been done on cellular responses to sound in humans. It was a fascinating interview I hope you enjoy it. (Will be on ITUNES soon, for now the link to my Website)

Sound Meditation Retreat a Great Success!

Last month in June, I was honored to share a blissful, relaxing and centering space through the sharing of sound, music, mantra and meditation. My fellow colleagues Stuart Rose (multi-instrumentalist) and Swami Dayananda (meditation and spiritual teacher) co hosted with me, our first ‘Sound, Mantra and Meditation’ Retreat at the stunning Lokananda Retreat Centre in Point Pass, South Australia.

Thankyou to all who participated in our Sound, Mantra and Meditation Retreat at Lokananda Retreat Centre, with Heather Frahn, Stuart Rose and Swami Dayananda

We were joined by beautiful people who came to share the weekend’s program of activities with us. We had great fun, as well as dove deeper into present moment awareness through sound and meditation. It was such a success that Stuart and Swami Dayananda hope to host another retreat again soon. Join the email list to stay informed.

If you’re reading this post and are interested in the benefits of therapeutic sound for the human body-mind-spirit…. there are a few ways you can interact with this if you live in Australia.

a) Would you like to study sound therapy? More info here…

b) Would you like to experience a ‘Soundbath’? There’s one coming up soon in South Australia, more here

c) Do you like soothing and blissful music to relax with? Great, I have a really nice CD available at this link that people rave to me about!
