Sounds for Therapy and Transformation
As a counsellor and therapist I am always looking for ways to encourage and support my clients in their therapeutic dialogue. I have created a soundscape called Phi Crystal Shrutis using Crystal Singing Bowls and Shruti Boxes.
I am fortunate to have this sound recording available on iTunes, Amazon and Google Play. It is sourced through CD Baby.

The text from my sleeve note is presented below:
Phi- the golden ratio 1.618:1
Crystal Singing Bowls: Made from 99.992% pure quartz crystal. The bowl in this recording is an Egyptian Blue G# Phi Practitioner
Shruti Boxes: M1 Low G and M5 Low G
I am a psychotherapist who uses talking therapy, the voice and energy psychology. I use a range of sounds to soothe the mind, calm the nervous system and balance and retune the body and energy fields.
The Shruti Boxes are sounding G# - D#, a perfect fifth; considered by Lao Tzu as a source of universal harmony and balance between the forces of Yin and Yang. The bowl is a G# which means that it forms an octave with the low G# from the Shruti Box and sings solo and then in conversation with both Shruti Boxes.
Track 1: Phi Immersive. This is the ascending and descending phi as defined below blended seamlessly eight times to provide an hour of phi and fifths in fabulous resonance.
Track 2: Phi Core. In order to amplify the ‘phi effect’ I decided to create a unit of sound that demonstrated in its progress the golden ratio in the timings of different combinations of the instruments. The piece begins with 1 minute of the G# bowl; the M5 small hardwood Shruti joins in for the following 1.6 minutes; the M1 large pine based Shruti joins in for 1.6x1.6 = 2.56 minutes before descending in the same ratio ending with the solitary G# bowl! The intention behind these sounds is to provide a soundscape for personal development, meditation and feeling good. I hope that you enjoy what you here!
