Sacred or Therapeutic Harp
This ancient art form, synonymous with healing over centuries of history, the harp has the ability to bring peace, calm, uplift and soothe. David played his harp for the King to sooth him, the ancient Greek philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras believed that individual frequencies in music can support healing in the body and was reported to have used therapeutic sound to treat physical and emotional problems.
Trained to use vibration, very old and ancient modes, harmony, tone and rhythm to heal, calm, uplift and raise the vibration of a space. Angela can also provide a seamless experience of healing harp, a hands-on musical experience with drums and other instruments, along with any type of education, presentation or training to enhance your conference, retreat, or event.
