Appreciation for Resounding Earth
“Working with Gabriella, Heather and Quentin has been the deepest and most profound experience of transformation for me. Never before have I felt so safe in a workshop. My process with the bowl was tough at times, and always - like a miracle - one of these beautiful enablers showed up to be with me. Sometimes to support me in the handling of the tools, sometimes to listen, sometimes to just be in silence together for a while, sometimes to ask this one question that allowed me to move on… three souls who can hold the rim of the circle in wondrous ways…a healing sanctuary … a sacred vessel.” Michaela Sieh, Brussels, Belgium
Oh wow, I am gently but powerfully lifted into another dimension!!!!
Beautiful. Absolutely stunning, heartfelt, changing me, us, so changing everything. V.T. Austria
Thanks so much for last night. It's really a life saver! I had a much more settled evening. It's incredible how vulnerable and off centre i am going recently with these symptoms, but it also seems an incredible opportunity to make a major shift in life.
I was doing some of that work on myself in the early hours again. Not from 'shoulds'. It's a kind and loving approach. Wonderful. Thank you again. M.O. Devon, England
Last week I had a very deep and powerful experience...I took part in a singing bowl workshop in Obenaus, crafting myself a singing bowl. To be honest I had no idea what I was stepping into and now my mind is challenged to translate this experience into words.... Connecting with a piece of metal, connecting with the forces of the fire, water and the nature itself, hammering and in the same time listening to what wants to emerge. This was very intimate and in the same time collective experience. And so the piece of metal evolved into a singing bowl with a magical vibration and sound. Dear Heather and Gabriella. Thank you so much for stewarding this process and sharing your gifts with us and thank you to all the other participants for sharing this journey! ..... V. D. Obenaus Community, Southern Austria
Thank you, thank you dearest Gabriella, Your beautiful music has allowed sadness to be replaced with joy for B's wondrous journey forward and beyond the beyond .The vibrations so profoundly from the heart spoke to me of the vastness of creation and B's continuing journey .Wow what a gift. M.H. Suffolk, England
One of the best experiences of my life 🤗 I have birthed 4 beautiful and very personal bowls with the expert guidance and insights of both Heather and Gabriella. If you are interested in sound, whether for personal or planetary healing, then I would encourage you to attend one of their workshops 💜🕉 Paddy Baillie Healing Sounds, Leatherhead, UK
Thank you for a beautiful day of energy, validation, vibration and connection. My body and soul are very grateful for all that occurred that day...I have emerged transformed and excited about working in a new way with all my conscious (singing bowl and gong) beings. L.J. Somerset, England
Gabriella and Heather create real magic through sound and their alignment with the subtle worlds. This is work which is at the heart of what Findhorn is about and I can wholeheartedly recommend their projects to anyone! Come and join!

Many thanks for a wonderful workshop and time with you. Occasionally I attend a workshop where you get the feel that there was life before and life afterwards – this last weekend was definitely one of them. R.D. Bedfordshire, England
Still ringing inside with big heartedness. Having joyful, active meditations. THANK YOU. Jess. Dumfries, Scotland
I recall your sweet ,gentle kindness allowing me to open up and receive so much of the goodness coming from the centre of the earth, a truly moving connection that I sensed was always present but until meeting you I had ignored. Ever since creating my little bowl I have felt a stronger connection with mother earth, and a happiness in sharing my positive vibrations with my family, meditators and the world. Peace. Go Well, Stay Well Keep up the great work. J.W. Surrey, England
Thank you for the glorious work you facilitate. You hold a deep space of possibility for all present and allow each person to open themselves to an expansiveness and fineness in the crafting of the instruments. Your work is exquisitely tuned and totally unique. Each workshop is a transformational process for all present. I am filled with gratitude for all that you do and especially for who you both be. J.F. Heart of England
It felt enormous, in the inner world, provoked by the sound. However, I am very very grateful to be able to touch this pain so deeply, to bring it to the light for the healing of all. S.A Hampshire, England
I still cannot come over it... I play it often and in the least likely places around the office... Today a friend told me it sounds so "balanced" and "whole" that I even shed a tear for her sensitive ears. :-) Another one simply knelt in front of me and kissed my hands. I am so touched myself by the 3-day experience, the result and by the reactions of these two people today that my wings are flapping strong and carrying me 10 cm above ground. :-) THANK YOU!" Andrea Erdei, Brussels, Belgium
The process of making the bowl is beautiful.. as the metal transform, whatever you experience (good or bad, abilities or stuff that unconsciously may keep you stuck , such as perfectionism, expectations, judgements of yourself, comparison to others, etc) gets brought forward and Heather is a wonderful facilitator who has a natural ability to walk you through whatever is going on for you. It's like an embodiment of energetic processing together with a display of your true unique nature as each bowls are different even if they start the same .... with Gabriella is the magic master of construction ... Fab experience + if you run Bars in the evening, I'd say it'd be even better! G.F. Co. Clare Ireland
These workshops are about so much more than making a singing bowl: the bowl making process is held in a vibrational field which encourages self-reflection leading to self-knowledge and insight, recognition and potential release of blockages to the free flow of energy whether mental, emotional, physical or spiritual: Gabriella and Heather are always there too along with fellow workshop participants to facilitate these healing and clearing times.

Do you know that feeling when you suddenly can breathe again? this is how I feel right now. Your listening and the Access tools- this is a very powerful and potent combination. M.S. Belgium
The work that they do, individually, together and in co-creation really was gifted to me throughout the week. I not only received but was invited to join in the cycle of giving and receiving so that I , too, was part of the co-creation. Their ability and willingness to listen to my expectations for the trip, tune into my dreams and aspirations, and anticipate what else might enrich our time together offered a journey not just a trip to amazing places. One that left me filled and ready to return home taking the profound energies and messages of the places we visited. Jeanne Crane, New York state
I felt we left the old, took a mysterious journey to the next place/space. I had the trust to go there, to jump. As always, this is your gift to me. To dream, to weave, to pave- a path, an invitation. To give me courage to walk, to run. Even when I know not the direction, the destination.
You create the vibration for us to walk on, to bathe in, to dream.
And wow!!! You've grown. There is such richness, such heart space, such exquisite beauty and resonance between you. The divine is magnified through you.
Wow!!! What gifts. Thank you for being in my life. Even for short moments. S.A. Israel
What a wonderful gift you gave that week in Suffolk, I'm sure the ripples will continue through the generations as will the path.
I needed you both to know how your work has changed and spiritually enriched our lives and to thank you from my heart. M. Haythornthwaite, Suffolk
I was at your presentation yesterday and I can honestly say that it was one of the most sublime experiences of my life. The sounds you created transported me to a place of harmony exquisite beyond words, beyond mind, beyond emotions, beyond ... It felt like 'home' in the very greatest sense and is how I would like to feel while I die and pass to the next stage of life.
The whole of the rest of my day was coloured by the experience. Everything I saw and heard was so much richer than usual. As a sensitive and also a long term 'Findhorny' I have had many interesting experiences but yesterday I felt my consciousness was changed in a way that I have not experienced before. For a while, I could do nothing except 'be'. It seemed to me that to try to talk would diminish the experience prematurely, hence I did not thank you at the time. However I would like to thank you both now in the very deepest way possible. V. Jack Scotland
It was such a magical weekend . The conscious space you held and attention you gave us in all ways was so profound and generous. The bowl is so beautiful. I have been sharing it wherever I go . Kylie Borg, Music Therapist, Bedfordshire, UK
Thank you for a weekend of joy and wonder and companionship. It was a deep thrill co-creating something so beautiful, and at the homecoming ceremony to welcome the new bowls, hearing the song of 'my' bowl in harmony with the rest of the family - the emotion was beyond words.
Thank you for your magical work. Your skills, knowledge, kindness, patience, energy, commitment, vision.
You gave us courage. And you reminded me to invite in the many benevolent beings that share life, which I sometimes lose sight of. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Your workshop was one of the most memorable and lovely weekends for me, ever.
Flora Myer Somerset, UK
People's eyes light up when they learn that I made it with my own hands. It's like a miracle! H. T-B. Brussels and UK
Thank you so much for a wonderful weekend, it was unexpectedly deep and rich for me.
Our Singing bowls have come out ...heralding a new phase for us. Hermione Elliott -Director, Living Well Dying Well
What an amazing grace to be with Heather, Gabriella and Q on Iona last September on our singing bowl retreat – so many firsts for me all coincided in the most splendid week that I have spent in a very long time – visiting Iona which called me, and the time was ripe last year…and likewise wanting to make my first singing bowl – again, right time, right place. What do I remember: oh so many things – an amazing train journey from the very south of England, and boy what an incredible experience as we got into the highlands – and then Mull (stunning) and then the final boat trip to Iona – on a gorgeous evening crossing the water - sunny, bright, vivid. And then on the workshop, one on my abiding memories is sitting on the grass in the garden, with my evolving bowl – softly getting into the sense of what question was emerging, whilst hammering, filing or putting the bowl into the fire, watching its colours change in the flame. And one of the great qualities that the H, Q & G brought was this very uncomplicated way of just wandering between us all, just a conversation here or there, about the bowl, or about my question I was holding – sharing their experience that ranged from the very practical, to the more esoteric – what might that ridge mean have symbolised for me being at the very near edge of my bowl that I found so difficult to beat out and smoothen on the second day? Or watching the rain drops dance and spit in the how bowl as it cooled and I prayed for my inner wish to deepen along with the softening metal. I certainly found the ‘work’ on the bowl an extraordinary journey. And then there were the magical meals that emerged so beautifully, exquisitely nourishing as was the sense of community- some experienced bowl makers, some newbies like me.
It truly was a week in which I think I was walking and working in a state of meditation and bliss…Marcos Frangos, Wellspring Change Ltd. England
"I loved making my bowl and love the space it puts me into every time I use him......Diiiiing!"
Thank you for the glorious work you facilitate. You hold a deep space of possibility for all present and allow each person to open themselves to an expansiveness and fineness in the crafting of the instruments.
Your work is exquisitely tuned and totally unique. Each workshop is a transformational process for all present. I am filled with gratitude for all that you do and especially for who you both be.
I am SO happy to know you both….. how did I get to be so lucky?
