Santani Sound Healing:
Healing through Voice

at sunwater spa

with Kristina Sophia

 

Saturday August 19th from 7 to 9 pm
$30 per participant


The first hour Kristina will guide us in ways of using our own voices for healing and bringing ourselves into alignment. She will be drawing from ancient traditions and her own experience.

 

The second hour is for you just to relax and absorb the healing qualities of Kristina’s voice as it naturally resonates across the ancient frame drum. This amplifies and creates ethereal overtones similar to hearing a beautiful voice in a cathedral.

 

Come and bathe in the deep resonance of the shamanic and angelic power of an authentic sound healer. You will be amazed and restored.

 

Kristina experienced her first satori experience at the age of 16 when she sang to the ocean. Since then she has performed around the world, taught countless sound healing classes and co-founded “Musical Ambassadors of Peace” a non-profit dedicated to helping heal the wounds of war through the power of music.
