Cast your mind back to the last time a sound affected you. Perhaps birdsong set a positive tone for your day or a favourite song lifted your mood.

Recentresearch has proven that it absolutely can and that sound healing can therefore help us achieve all kinds of personal transformation, enabling us to lead more authentic, connected and contented lives. The combination of the Q&A approach, insightful case studies and practical exercises means this little book really takes you on abehind-the-scenes tour of this powerful practice, giving everything you need to begin a life-changing journey full of healing potential.
