Appreciation for Resounding Earth
“Working with Gabriella, Heather and Quentin has been the deepest and most profound experience of transformation for me. Never before have I felt so safe in a workshop. My process with the bowl was tough at times, and always - like a miracle - one of these beautiful enablers showed up to be with me. Sometimes to support me in the handling of the tools, sometimes to listen, sometimes to just be in silence together for a while, sometimes to ask this one question that allowed me to move on… three souls who can hold the rim of the circle in wondrous ways…a healing sanctuary … a sacred vessel.” Michaela Sieh, Brussels, Belgium
Gabriella and Heather create real magic through sound and their alignment with
the subtle worlds. This is work which is at the heart of what Findhorn is about
and I can wholeheartedly recommend their projects to anyone! Come and join!

I still cannot come over it... I play it often and in the least likely places around the office... Today a friend told me it sounds so "balanced" and "whole" that I even shed a tear for her sensitive ears. :-) Another one simply knelt in front of me and kissed my hands. I am so touched myself by the 3-day experience, the result and by the reactions of these two people today that my wings are flapping strong and carrying me 10 cm above ground. :-) THANK YOU!" Andrea Erdei, Brussels, Belgium
These workshops are about so much more than making a singing bowl: the bowl making process is held in a vibrational field which encourages self-reflection leading to self-knowledge and insight, recognition and potential release of blockages to the free flow of energy whether mental, emotional, physical or spiritual: Gabriella and Heather are always there too along with fellow workshop participants to facilitate these healing and clearing times.

The work that they do, individually, together and in co-creation really was gifted to me throughout the week. I not only received but was invited to join in the cycle of giving and receiving so that I , too, was part of the co-creation. Their ability and willingness to listen to my expectations for the trip, tune into my dreams and aspirations, and anticipate what else might enrich our time together offered a journey not just a trip to amazing places. One that left me filled and ready to return home taking the profound energies and messages of the places we visited. Jeanne Crane, New York state
What a wonderful gift you gave that week in Suffolk, I'm sure the ripples will continue through the generations as will the path.
I needed you both to know how your work has changed and spiritually enriched our lives and to thank you from my heart. M. Haythornthwaite, Suffolk
I was at your presentation yesterday and I can honestly say that it was one of the most sublime experiences of my life. The sounds you created transported me to a place of harmony exquisite beyond words, beyond mind, beyond emotions, beyond ... It felt like 'home' in the very greatest sense and is how I would like to feel while I die and pass to the next stage of life.
The whole of the rest of my day was coloured by the experience. Everything I saw and heard was so much richer than usual. As a sensitive and also a long term 'Findhorny' I have had many interesting experiences but yesterday I felt my consciousness was changed in a way that I have not experienced before. For a while, I could do nothing except 'be'. It seemed to me that to try to talk would diminish the experience prematurely, hence I did not thank you at the time. However I would like to thank you both now in the very deepest way possible. V. Jack Scotland
It was such a magical weekend . The conscious space you held and attention you gave us in all ways was so profound and generous.
The bowl is so beautiful. I have been sharing it wherever I go . Kylie Borg, Music Therapist, Bedfordshire, UK
Thank you for a weekend of joy and wonder and companionship. It was a deep thrill co-creating something so beautiful, and at the homecoming ceremony to welcome the new bowls, hearing the song of 'my' bowl in harmony with the rest of the family - the emotion was beyond words.
Thank you for your magical work. Your skills, knowledge, kindness, patience, energy, commitment, vision.
You gave us courage. And you reminded me to invite in the many benevolent beings that share life, which I sometimes lose sight of. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Your workshop was one of the most memorable and lovely weekends for me, ever.
Flora Myer Somerset, UK
Thank you so much for a wonderful weekend, it was unexpectedly deep and rich for me.
Our Singing bowls have come out ...heralding a new phase for us. Hermione Elliott -Director, Living Well Dying Well
What an amazing grace to be with Heather, Gabriella and Q on Iona last September on our singing bowl retreat – so many firsts for me all coincided in the most splendid week that I have spent in a very long time – visiting Iona which called me, and the time was ripe last year…and likewise wanting to make my first singing bowl – again, right time, right place. What do I remember: oh so many things – an amazing train journey from the very south of England, and boy what an incredible experience as we got into the highlands – and then Mull (stunning) and then the final boat trip to Iona – on a gorgeous evening crossing the water - sunny, bright, vivid. And then on the workshop, one on my abiding memories is sitting on the grass in the garden, with my evolving bowl – softly getting into the sense of what question was emerging, whilst hammering, filing or putting the bowl into the fire, watching its colours change in the flame. And one of the great qualities that the H, Q & G brought was this very uncomplicated way of just wandering between us all, just a conversation here or there, about the bowl, or about my question I was holding – sharing their experience that ranged from the very practical, to the more esoteric – what might that ridge mean have symbolised for me being at the very near edge of my bowl that I found so difficult to beat out and smoothen on the second day? Or watching the rain drops dance and spit in the how bowl as it cooled and I prayed for my inner wish to deepen along with the softening metal. I certainly found the ‘work’ on the bowl an extraordinary journey. And then there were the magical meals that emerged so beautifully, exquisitely nourishing as was the sense of community- some experienced bowl makers, some newbies like me. It truly was a week in which I think I was walking and working in a state of meditation and bliss…Marcos Frangos, Wellspring Change Ltd. England
