His book, "The Complete Guide to Sound Healing," is one of the top selling books in the field. The book explains how to use sound for physical healing, brainwave entrainment, releasing stuck emotions, opening the heart, and connecting to Spirit. David is also one of the top selling producers of Sound Healing music with over 50 CD's, and runs the Sound Therapy Center at the Institute offering over 15 types of sound healing treatments. He is also the founder and Conference Coordinator of the World Sound Healing Conferences (now Globe Sound Healing Conference) and has put on 3 International Conferences. He has produced 9 Sound Healing concerts – 3 of them with full 3D projection with 3D glasses for everyone in the audience.

David has been studying esoteric systems of sound healing for over 15 years and has an in-depth understanding of the underlying physics of sound. David’s education in Physics at the University of California at Berkeley gives him a unique understanding of the way that sound affects us physically. David has been exploring the use of binaural beats for brainwave entrainment for over 10 years and has over 30 CD’s that incorporate brain enhancing frequencies in the music. David has come up with 9 techniques for releasing stuck emotions and deep emotional issues with sound and has been using these techniques in the classroom and therapy center for over 8 years. David has also been teaching a class on the Sound of Love at the Institute for 8 years.

David began as a Professional Recording Engineer.  He has been teaching, engineering and producing groups in major studios since 1982. David is also the author of the best selling book, “The Art of Mixing” that uses visuals to explain and show every style of mix in the world, which makes complex structures of mixes easily understandable. His second book, “The Art of Producing,” uses the visual framework for displaying sounds to explain Music Theory. Gibson is also the inventor of the Patented, “Virtual Mixer,” which uses 3D visuals of the mix to control mixing consoles and computerized mixers.

David is currently working on a Virtual Reality system where you can step into an image of your own body and be able to place visuals of sounds inside the body in 3D.  The visuals will then move sounds up and down in a Sound Table so you feel the sounds inside the body exactly where  you are seeing  the  visuals.

David's mission is to bring Sound and Energy Healing into the mainstream (and hospitals). In order to do this he has setup the Sound Healing Research Foundation, and has also created plays and movies to help educate the general public.

 

 

Elizabeth Grambsch M.A.

Elizabeth Grambsch has been studying sound, music and movement her whole life. For this presentation she draws from 20 years of experience with Tomatis’s work, listening programs and teaching prenatal parenting and early childhood music and movement classes. After having a deeply transformational experience with The Tomatis Method, she pursued a self-designed Master’s in Human Development to find out how it worked. She traveled the country studying with leaders in the fields of music and language acquisition, auditory processing, psychophysiology of listening, prenatal listening, developmental movement and listening and she interned at several Tomatis centers for first hand experience (where she experienced the dramatic impact of the sonic birth). In combination with her extensive music education background, she has provided truly enriched programs for families at the University of St. Thomas and Fairview-University Hospital systems. While teaching in Fairview’s Birth and Family Education department she became an effective early screener for developmental delays and actively worked with P.T., O.T., Speech Path, Music Therapy and Audiology departments.  She is a co-author in the textbook Bodymind and Voice: Foundations of Voice Education contributing chapters on prenate and early childhood development.

In her practice she is passionate about helping families prevent disruptions to optimal neurodevelopment, especially listening, and helping people of all ages recover healthy functioning using sound and movement based educational tools.

Don Estes

Don Estes
Don Estes is a certified medical technologist, laboratory director and neuroscientist who has lectured worldwide on sensory science and vibrational medicine. He has appeared on CNN, NBC, ABC, Entertainment Tonight, Science Frontiers, and the Discovery Channel hits Beyond 2000 and Next Step, which won an Emmy award in 1994. In addition, his work has been featured in Wired, Computer Design, and Los Angeles Magazines and many other national and international media. He is also the author of many articles as well as a book called Harmonic Law: The Science of Vibration, which is illustrated by a large wall chart titled the Absolute Scale of Relative Cosmic Reality, one of the most complete compendiums of scientific and philosophical knowledge ever assembled.

He is founder and director of InnerSense, Inc. and inventor of VibraSound® Sensory Resonance technologies used by both professional and nonprofessionals all over the world for music and sound therapy, relaxation, entertainment and expanded states of mind. His intellectual property is garnered from over thirty years experience in the unification of science, philosophy and religion and includes theories, proprietary knowledge and patents in the fields of light, color, sound, music and algorithmic automata. His unique combination of experience in both the hard and soft sciences represents the essence of true neuroscience.

In addition, he has consulted with hundreds of rejuvenation retreats, day spas, mind spas, medical professionals and location based entertainment facilities worldwide, having personally designed, built and operated three award-winning facilities called InnerSpace, MindWave and Aha! Spa.

Since 2001 his company, InnerSense, has been partnered with Psiometrics in Glastonbury. Together they have pioneered a new science of universal automata, which defines the physical and mental mechanisms behind the manifestation of intention. Jointly, they have designed and constructed a world-class supercomputer that can render a model of any reality in a formal mathematical language that is so exact and precise, the model is more or less the same thing as that which is being modeled. This “microcosmic emulator and emitter” can optimize, amplify and then radiate effective change back out into the internal and external environment.

Recently, this technology has taken a quantum leap from an online service to a built-in software program for home computers called the Portacle™, which now stands as a standard of reference and represents the state of the art in transformational processes. Finally completed after 20 years of research and development, it’s now available to everyone. This amazing technology allows one to express their intention into it and experience what it looks, sounds, and feels like in the spectral domain, on the other side, where all things originate. For more information, visit their website at www.theportacle.com.

Don currently lives the Aha! experience on a daily basis with his wife and two children in the Santa Monica Mountains of Los Angeles. He has recently been appointed as Technical Director of Psiometrics, Inc., a new corporation dedicated to bringing the next generation of transformational technologies forward to assist the world in its conscious evolution.

Lupito and Paul Utz
Lupito and Paul Utz are United Nations Peace Ambassadors sharing their message of love through the potent power of sound. He and Paul co-created the global company, Crystal Tones, where sound meets science.
Innovators of sonic therapy and vibrational medicine, they introduced a new generation of crystalline musical instruments to the world. And as part of the Kryon team, they released the Kryon alchemy bowl which is made up of Apophyllite, Moldavite, Morganite, Imperial Topaz, Platinum, Indigo and Silver designed to enhance your channeling abilities.

Utilizing the inherent properties of quartz crystal and mother nature's treasures, such as ruby, diamond, gold, emerald, rose quartz, amethyst, etc. they gave the elements a voice by creating "Alchemy Crystal Singing Bowls" that empower you to heal mind, body, and spirit.
As seen on Dr. Oz with Dr. Gaynor MD, the director of Medical Oncology at the Weil-Cornell Medical Center, the Crystal Tones Alchemy Singing Bowls were praised as the "Medicine of the Future". They have the unique ability to entrain with vibrational harmony the crystalline structure of the human body activating photons at a cellular level. This allows the body to heal itself by reaching the peaceful state of homeostasis. This tranquilness puts one in tune with self awareness, higher wisdom, and innovative expression by connecting with our divine source.
Alchemy Crystal singing bowls have created astounding results with their transformational and healing properties. Research proves that playing bowls improves concentration, creativity, lowers anxiety and allows you to relax. This can be explained by the brainwave entrainment effects of the bowls and also their binaural beats. Dr. Gaynor said that "Binaural beats are like auditory illusions..." they trick the brain into the desired brainwave state.

Lupito is dedicated to supporting all in achieving there highest potential. Born on December 12 (day of the mother), and founder of Crystal Tones, William Jones was given the name Lupito (after the Virgen de Guadalupe -the divine mother of Mexico) when he was recognized by Mexican Elders for holding the mother's energy. This energy which is in all of us mirrors the healing and nurturing sounds from the Alchemy Crystal Singing Bowls. The Bowls represent the chalice, the feminine, while the mallet represents the masculine co-creating crystalline bridges of sound. Lupito reminds us that we each have the mother's energy inside and to be conscious of how we embody it for example nurturing, caring, kindness, compassion, gratitude and our power of vulnerability. We get to access and activate our innate feminine and masculine qualities for synergy within ourselves and our environments. By allowing ourselves to be balanced in our feminine and masculine perspectives we open up to more possibilities and dimensions creating more enlightened ways of being.

As a means of introducing our service to the community of people who recognize the healing power to be found in sound, we will set up our reclining lawn chair – possibly two, space permitting – in the Sound Garden on Saturday and Sunday. While there, we will invite any conference attendee or presenter who would like to experience the service we provide to rest for a few moments of peaceful music from a small group of our singers.

We will be available to speak with any women who would like to consider singing with us, or with anyone who would like to learn how to request our service. We will have printed information available.
