Woodstock, NY-based
Hypnotherapist and Sound Healer,

Peter Blum
will present an overview of the history and use
of sound for healing and guidance.
Participants will experience demonstrations and exercises with
voice, drum and Himalayan singing bowls.

Modern science is now showing us what the sages and mystics of every ancient culture understood: Our universe is composed of energy that is matter vibrating. Tuning into those frequencies can be profoundly healing and inspirational. Sound has an undeniably powerful effect on our state of being.

suitable for healing arts practitioners,
musicians, and the general public,

we will learn about our name as vibrational signature,
how to use extended vocal techniques
such as the Mongolian shaman's "magical voice",
and will experience a mini-concert/induction
of healing trance utilizing Peter's extensive collection
of over 35 singing bowls, bells, gongs and cymbals.
We will also all participate in a short journey guided by drumming.

"The Healing Power of Loving-Kindness"

An Enlightening Talk and Guided Meditations with:
The Venerable Tulku Thondup, Rinpoche

Internationally revered spiritual teacher, accomplished meditation master and best-selling author, Tulku Thondup will present a special workshop on transforming negative thoughts and feelings into loving-kindness toward all beings.

spontaneously begin to blaze forth as the energy of pure love toward all.

Finally, whatever we see, hear and feel will turn into the images, sounds, and experiences of Unconditioned Love…. and our lives will become cheerful lives of true Loving Kindness, the source of peace and joy for all we meet.

Tulku Thondup Rinpoche's Biography is available at:

Being Peace
in a Troubled World:
Heart Teachings from a Tibetan Lama
Wars and rumors of Wars!

Children storming schools with rifles and brutally murdering other children!

Terrorists flying planes into buildings!

How do we, as individuals,
cope with the stress
of knowing what is happening in our world?
And how do we, as individuals,
contribute to effecting true peace in a world
in which violence seems out of control?
How do we
that we want to see in the world?
Yangthang Tulku Rinpoche
knows some of the answers to these questions
that weigh so heavily on our hearts.

Yangthang Tulku Rinpoche is an emanation
of the great Vimalamitra
and the immediate incarnation of
the Treasure Revealer Terton Dorje Dechen Lingpa.
He was imprisoned for over 20 years
by Chinese Communists.
Not only did he survive the horrors of inhumane torture,
he used his Buddhist training to transmute his experiences into wishfullfilling trees bearing fruits of wisdom, compassion, and gratitude for ALL beings,
even for those who tortured him and others.

Today, Rinpoche is
a source of profound spiritual understanding and
an authentic demonstration of Individual Peace.
This talk is for anyone who wants to embody peace as a way of being a force for positive change in the world.

Rinpoche will be on the east coast
for only a few days.
Please do all you can to take advantage of this very rare opportunity.
