Welcome to Tibetan Bowl Songs of Soul! My name is Stephanie Burch. I hold a Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology and am a Certified Tibetan Bowl Sound Healing Practitioner and Gong Master. I combine Western psychodynamic inquiry, Buddhist philosophy and antique Tibetan bowls, bells, gong and other instruments to facilitate healing with an emphasis on cultivating kindness and compassion towards Self and others. I offer individual and group sound healing sessions, breath work/guided meditation, toning, space clearing and am available for events. I have worked in the mental health field for 17 years in various settings including at the VA and Stanford University.
I have studied many alternative healing methods. Tibetan Bowl sound healing resonated with me most because of its traditional Buddhist foundation. As the saying goes, “when the Student is ready the Teacher appears.” Subsequently, one day out of nowhere, I had this idea about Tibetan bowl sound healing. I began researching and found Diane Mandle’s Tibetan Bowl Sound Healing School. I made an appointment with one of the graduates from her school to try a session. I was uncertain yet very excited about what the experience would be like.
The session absolutely blew me away; I felt more connected to myself and more trust about my belonging to this life and to the universe than I ever felt before. I felt a lightness both mentally and physically. I felt like every cell in my body was vibrating and buzzing with joy and bliss! In my heart I knew that sound healing was something I wanted to use in my own healing practice for others to experience. I love this modality because of the interplay between Buddhist tradition and scientific research. This is truly a healing modality where science meets spirituality!
