Colin Hillstrom is a certified sound healer, recording artist ,spiritual coach and author. His 11 bowls are made from different precious gems and metals like gold and platinum and hence emanate pure vibrations to clear and rebalance the chakras. Humans are like a walking symphony; we are vibrational beings capable of organized, harmonious, and unified creativity, consciousness, and connection. But sadly, for most of us, our body/mind/spirit complex is badly out of tune, the main reason for perpetual failure and disappointment, fear, and lack of love.When you attend a Chakra Sound Bath, you can quickly de-stress and re-balance your cells, nervous system, brain, mind and emotions.
