WHAT IS SOUND HEALING
Sound healing is an ancient practice that has been used around the world by many cultures for thousands of years. It was prescribed by early Greek physicians as a healing modality and is still used today in some Western hospitals to promote relaxation and wellness. Edgar Cayce, known as the sleeping prophet once said "sound will be the medicine of the future". In India, the sacred practice of chanting mantra is used to increase self awareness and bring one into alignment with divine purpose. In recent times, sound healing has gained popularity throughout the Western world as ordinary people subject themselves to this unique practice.
WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT
Most often sound healers use crystal bowls, gongs, tuning forks and a few musical instruments. These tools have been used over time by Tibetan monks and others and have shown to produce profound effects on the mind, body and spirit. What makes Maui Sound Healing different is the combining of spiritual practices and disciplines related to sound including kirtan, North Indian classical raga, mantras, Native American chants, shamanic invocation, isochronic tones and world instruments.

I attend Rasa Priya’s Maui Sound Healings on Tuesdays at the gorgeous Lumeria retreat center. It is very eclectic, as Rasa invites guest musicians, dancers and healers each week. We begin with kirtan chants. The powerful mantras spread throughout the room. After that, the sound healing begins with a variety of interesting instruments and sounds. As I lay on the floor on my yoga mat, wrapped with pillows and blankets, I close my eyes and let the music absorb into my being. I feel a collective consciousness with all those present. The vibrational tones resonate with my body and I feel love and light pouring into my body raising the vibrational energy. I feel an overwhelming peace and calmness. The sound experience was powerful. It was one of the best ones I have attended on the island, and there are many. It was perfect.
Oh wow, the ceremony was amazing…the best sound healing experience ever! The evening was complete with pleasure for the eyes, an exquisite male Balinese dancer, the pleasure of aroma, Island flowers and paulo santo to enliven the spirit, pleasure of taste, deep rich and delicious cacao, pleasure of healing connective touch reiki and the pleasure of sound energy vibrating through all levels of my consciousness. All of my sense seduced taking me deeper into my heart. I am loved.
I have been suffering from depression for years. Im not sure what happened, but something shifted. Thank you!
Before going to Maui Sound Healing, I never meditated or paid much attention to that kind of thing. Soon after closing my eyes, I felt so relaxed. The music seemed somehow different. Without sounding to weird, I felt like I was dreaming but I was awake. Im not really sure what happened but when I opened my eyes it felt so peaceful. I think Im going to take a yoga class. You guys rock!
We sign up the Tuesday morning 1 hour session; it’s 4 of us but was conflicted with the zip line schedule my sons also sign up. I let Sara know we are 2 people coming for Tuesday and we, 4 people would like to sign up Saturday evening 1.5 hours session. Sara responded that she can credit 2 people to the Saturday evening. Then later we found out the zip line got canceled due to the weather condition so we all four attend the Tuesday morning Sound Healing. We had great experience overall at this Yoga retreat location. Feeling calm and peaceful. We also sign up the Saturday evening and attended there. There are more musicians playing different instruments and more going on during the whole 1.5 hour. We experience some difference and still very soothing in general. We felt these two experiences both are worthy in our trip. Thank you!
This was definitely one of the most unique things we did in Maui! Rasa and Sarah used their musical talents to create a meditative soundscape. Very relaxing and refreshing. Go check it out!
Wonderful experience in a beautiful setting. We felt immersed in the music and it was a relaxing hour of focusing meditation. Definitely would do this again, and would recommend it to any of our friends visiting Maui.
The best way to tell is to see for yourself. Come and treat your senses to a truly unique experience.
