"I believe that singing, chanting, toning, prayer and healing
are all one and the same. We are creative beings, responsible for
our bodies, our emotions, our thoughts and minds. What we give our
attention to we give our energy to. I believe that by consciously
and intentionally using sound we discover ourselves as co-creators."
– Norma Gentile
Many questions were asked by me of intuitive healer Norma Gentile
at our interview. The tape recording of our interview had failed. I
now sit with paper and pen, trying to remember the crux of what we had
What I remember the most about our interview was at the end when
she asked me if I wanted a sample of the healing energy she works with
in her life and workshops. I then agreed. She asked me to sing any note
and then hold it, so I did. She then began to sing with and around my
notes, and I too sang to her notes.
The sound we began to create together began to resonate a powerful
and healing force all its own. Simultaneously I felt so utterly connected
to Norma, myself and my relationship to the universe. I then understood,
within that moment, that Norma's work is very powerful and healing.
In a instant, she had guided me and helped me to reawaken to the infinite
resource state available to us all.
An experiential weekend "retreat" surrounded by silence, song meditation
and much more will begin May 21-23, 1999.
