Healing Sounds of Throat Singing

Matthew Kocel back by popular demand to the Arts Centre Oct 7

Submitted by Janet, Amethyst Bookstore


atthew's powerful and healing vocal sound is a unique blend of Tibetan/Tuvan throat singing and Euro-American overtone chant. His guttural and purring vocal harmonics are combined with an array of unusual instruments - the harmonium, a set of Tibetan and crystal signing bowls, tuning forks, a conch shell and tingsha cymbals.


In this Healing Sound Concert, Matthew creates multiple harmonies and healing frequencies that allow you to enter in to a realm, beyond space and time.


The experience has been described as "bathing in liquid light". During this healing sound journey you may experience a realignment and balancing of your energy system. This rare opportunity for Chilliwack, is not be be missed!


About Sound Healing

"The primordial sound vibration, guided by an intelligence that is everywhere and in all things, organizes energy into form. Through the conscious application of sound as a tool for transformation, we can access the part of ourselves that knows everything is connected; all is one. Sound Healing includes musical sounds that bypass mind chatter, emotions, blockages and touch the core of your being. This core is where perfect balance and connection exist. From this place healing occurs. Matthew combines his instruments with the amazing vocal harmonics of his throat singing and prayers to create a safe, sacred healing space". (quote from Matthew's website:
