    An individual who experienced harp healing with me had the following to say about the harp and color I offer during a session:

    The harp is an instrument of sublime beauty and a powerful tool for healing. Revered throughout the ages for its angelic sound, the harp has now been shown in clinical studies to have measurable therapeutic benefits for reducing stress and anxiety, inducing restful sleep, and helping listeners release physical and emotional suffering.
    The use of color as therapy is a truly holistic, non-invasive and powerful therapy which dates back thousands of years; evidence of this can be found in ancient texts from India, China and Egypt. Color is simply light of varying wavelengths and, as such, is a form of energy used in Color Therapy. Christina uses colored scarves based on the client’s vibration to assist with the Harp Healing.”

    A harp healing session consists of playing improvised, intuitive harp music (which you’re welcome to record), an invitation to sit at the harp and play your own harp sounds, and an opportunity to choose a scarf or two of vibrant colors to enhance your time with harp healing. Each session is unique and completely tailored to the needs of the person sitting with me. I feel like I’m holding the space, with the addition of music and color, for energy, for healing work.
    My work as the harp healer at the O.N.E. Wellness Center in Rochester, NY comes after years of studying many different disciplines. This includes astrology, palmistry, sound healing, music therapy, many forms of dance (Zydeco, African drum and dance are favorites), voice lessons, and harp lessons. Then I had the good fortune to work with Mara, who encouraged the journey to improvisation. I’ve taken many art, painting, crafts, zentangle, jewelry making classes. What they all had in common was working holistically with individuals, making intuition an integral part of this work, and the desire to be deep in the creative process. I still enjoy creating unique jewelry pieces from many different mediums.

    When I complete my color therapy course, I will “learn more, each day, about the light spectrum, how we harness its power to heal and when and where is the best time to use it. Color is present in the food we eat, clothes we wear, environment we live and work in, as well as, the colors we’re attracted to each day. These mysteries tell a story as to what we need, in the moment for transformation to occur.” This completely complements my view of intuitive, improvisation harp sounds used to support individuals on their journeys.

  • OM MANI PADME HUM Chant for Creating Compassion. 

    Jonathan Goldman and Andi Goldman                       

    Share the OM MANI PADME HUM chant for creating compassion.  

     

    Dear Sound Friends:

    We are living in unique and extraordinary times. One of the most important attributes we can manifest and embody is compassion. There is so much divisiveness occurring on our planet right now. Perhaps more compassion would help assist this condition.

    The "Om Mani Padme Hum" mantra is considered one of the most powerful chants for creating compassion. Very recently, I rediscovered a recording from the 2014 Healing Sounds Intensive that featured first, a teaching on compassion by Chant Master and Geshe, Lama Tashi and second, an extended group chant of the "Om Mani Padme Hum" mantra co-created by Lama Tashi, myself and nearly 100 other sound healers at the Intensive.   

    It’s quite a unique and special recording – beautiful, powerful and profound.  For no other purpose than to assist in the generation of compassion on this planet, I am making this MP3 recording available as a free gift to you. The recording includes liner notes with information about the mantra and more.

    Simply click on this link to download this recording.  I trust that listening to it will help accelerate compassion. If it resonates, please share it with a friend.

    Enjoy this version of “Om Mani Padme Hum”, featuring both the teachings and the extended group chanting of this exquisite mantra.

    May enlightenment come to all sentient beings!

    Blessings of Light & Love through Sound,

    Jonathan
