with Ildi Ingraham
Sound healing is so calming. If we lie down, really let go of all the tension in our bodies and open our ears, minds and hearts to the clear, vibrating sounds of the singing bowls, gong, chimes, tuning forks, drum and the human voice, magic can happen. We can be transported to higher states of consciousness, experiencing peace and bliss. Any erratic vibrations which cause energy blockages in our bodies and auras, that were caused by past trauma, become entrained to the clear vibrations of these instruments and energetic flow resumes. Ildi will play her crystal and 7 metals singing bowls, lotus gong, Koshi Chimes, drum and use her voice to bring you to a state of deep relaxation and bliss. It is in this deeply relaxed state that healing occurs. Please bring a mat to lie on, a blanket, pillow and anything else you need to be very comfortable. Music and a strong desire to ease the suffering of others have been important to Ildi Ingraham for as long as she can remember. She started singing professionally when she was 19 years old and in 1978 moved to Colorado, drawn to the beauty of the mountains. In1986 she went to Taos, New Mexico to study crystal and gem stone therapy and got certified in this field. In 1996 she studied massage therapy in Nevada City, California and became a licensed massage therapist. The first time Ildi heard crystal singing bowls being played, in 1994, she was so mesmerized by their beautiful sound that she knew that they had to be a part of her life. She bought her first crystal singing bowl in 2013 and slowly built up her collection of instruments. She has studied sound healing extensively through online classes and numerous books and has accumulated a collection of crystal singing bowls, as well as metal singing bowls and a wind gong from Indonesia, Koshi chimes from France and a Native American style drum. She now uses her voice to elicit a state of calmness together with her instruments. She has been offering group and private sound healing sessions since 2018. Ildi lives in Paonia, Colorado with her artist husband, Erick Ingraham, and their two dogs, Lance and Zoey. They have four grown children.
