Sound Healing is an ancient and profoundly relaxing experience. During the session, multiple instruments will be used to immerse your entire being into a deep state of meditation. Many students report having out of body experiences, a feeling of being aware of your body but floating above it at the same time. They have also reported the releasing of mental and emotional trauma as well as physical healing.
We start each session with Tibetan singing bowls. As the bowls are rung they send waves of vibration throughout your body harmonizing cells and removing any initial blockages from your psyche. Then we start to play the gong in specific rhythms and placement, programming the sound waves specifically for you, which penetrate and release the trauma stored within your body mind complex.
The beautiful sound waves produced by the Bowls and Gong have a relaxing hypnotic effect on the brain, slowing brain waves and inducing deep meditative state.

Bhavani Hope started her spiritual quest at age 14, when she became self-aware. All of a sudden Bhavani was able to hear her own thoughts and judgements. Growing up in a Christian home by her devout parents, she started questioning why all of the religions claimed to be the chosen ones. She started diving into western religious studies, reading and practicing and visiting churches in her community, searching for the reason why all religions believe their way is the ONLY way.
At age 17 Bhavani's life completely changed....she spent a year following the Grateful Dead around the country and going to rainbow gatherings. After a weekend of expanding her consciousness, she came back to the show in San Francisco. Through divine intervention she found her BFF Pahari in the parking lot. Thank Goddess because Bhavani was wearing only one shoe, had lost her backpack and was only wondering the parking lot for 15 minutes before reunion. Pahari took her under the Divine Mothers protection, it was that evening.... Bhavani's life was forever changed. They sat down and meditated together for what seemed like lifetimes, at one point during the meditation...Bhavani opened her eyes....when she did.... she saw something she had never witnessed before.
Rainbows of light were surrounding her best friends body, her face was hers but more perfectly dimensional, she had multiple arms moving-dancing-flowing all around her body, it was like a ghost of her body in front of her physical body. Then, if that was not enough...Her best friend spoke. She said "My name is Sri Shailaputri Brahmacharini Chandraghanta Kushmanda Skandamata Katyayani Kaalaratri Mahagauri Siddhidhatri". Bhavani's jaw dropped, her mind froze, and she went into a state of shock and awe..not knowing anything of the eastern religions yet.
After 1 year of touring with the Grateful Dead, she returned back home to Arizona and resumed her "normal" life and friendship with Pahari. Together they started following the Guru's Amma and Osho, studying and practicing together meditations and learning Yantra's and Mantras. Bhavani started her obsessive search for WHO or WHAT is inside of her best friend.
This lead her to studies of eastern religions...many Guru's, Yoga Teachers, Healers and Shamans over her life's journey.
Now for the Music....Bhavani has also been dedicated to EDM since she was a teen, sneaking out of her parent’s house, borrowing the car before she had her license to check out the early warehouse raves.
She brings to the festival scene a yoga-inspired perspective of enlightenment and empowerment. Bhavani has collaborated with a variety of musicians and producers throughout her career, most notably Gardner Cole. Gardner Cole is a Music Producer and Songwriter with more than 50 International #1’s, 139 International Platinum awards and 17 International Gold Awards.
Bhavani grew up a musical kid gifted with a sensually expressive voice that she first began to cultivate as a kid while in church choir. She honed her inborn musicality through studying with voice coaches, and studying jazz piano and classical music on the violin and flute.
Upon dipping her toe for nearly a decade in the mantra-music community, playing at BhaktiFest and other national Yoga Festivals Bhavani had an epiphany. “I realized I have a big personality—I want to stand up and entertain people. I have jolts of lightning shooting out of my feet,” she pauses, laughing. “I wanted to combine that yoga uplifting and searching quality with the EDM music I’ve loved my whole life.”
She began to compose music on the harmonium, a portable organ-like instrument to complement it. That began her journey in fusing her lifelong loves of self-growth and EDM. To this day, Bhavani still composes on the harmonium.
To this end, Bhavani believes in the power of sound as a healing force and takes her mixes seriously as a component of her artistry. “I want people to really feel a balance of emotions with sound. I want to give people a good dose of musical medicine,” she says.
