Giselle is an accomplished gong player and sound artist, with many years of experience in the field of Sound Therapy. Her first encounter with sound vibration was in a Kundalini Yoga class. There she first heard the intrinsic sounds of the gong and was hooked. Enchanted with sound vibration paired with the science of yoga and meditation she immersed herself with Kundalini Yoga, Bhakti yoga and Tantra.
Unfolding before her a path of devotion to unleash that which is hidden. Like the lotus flower emerging from the deep mud, sound vibration, meditation, and devotional chanting are powerful keys to open the light within to illuminate your entire being.
Giselle has studied the art of Sacred Sound with Gongmaster Sotantar Suraj and later assisted him as a teacher at his all night gong concerts at the Integratron in Joshua Tree, California and other events. Teaching Kundalini Yoga, meditation and guiding ecstatic dance.
Becoming visible on her own, using planetary gongs, Tibetan singing bowls, crystal bowls, chimes, bells, frame drum and her voice, Giselle facilitates sound bath immersions through the elements. Incorporating meditation, chanting, vocal toning to prepare the Self to go beyond the body and mind, to dissolve in the All.
