Dr. Jeffrey D. Thompson, D.C., B.F.A., C.N.S.T.

Dr. Jeffrey D. Thompson is well recognized globally for his musical, modulated sound frequency audio programs for healing, personal growth and experiential enjoyment not easily forgotten, and also for his clinical expertise. As a physician/musician, composer and inventor, his work is well guide by his scientific and research orientation and work, as well as by his compassion and understanding of stress and the human body, mind and spirit. His work is mind/body harmonious and clinically proven to foster deep personal wellness and expansion of consciousness, not only resolving challenges at causality level, but enhancing and expanding personal potential. Greater calmness in handling stress; restorative sleep; pain relief; anxiety, depression and trauma resolution; as well as a deepening of meditation and meditative clarity frequently offering an ecstatic state of consciousness, are a few possible benefits received and reported by individuals many times over.

Dr. Thompson’s musical soundscapes and body-support furniture are used by medical and healthcare practitioners worldwide. They create a non-invasive, effective, integrative, holistic modality for multiple practices and significant healing, pain relief, trauma resolution and increased wellness for their patients and clients. His programs educate and re-train the autonomic nervous system into a state of homeostasis where physical healing, emotional release, pain relief and causal factors of trauma or health challenges may more easily be addressed, relieved and/or completely resolved or removed. The modality is a tri-fold approach – auditory, kinesthetic and visual – thereby employing one’s three primary modes of learning.

Dr. Thompson has worked with Deepak Chopra, Louise Hay, Bernie Siegel, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Bru Joy, Susan Jeffers, Cisco, Mattel, Nike, TRW, NASA, JPL and others who have greatly contributed to society, some of which cannot yet be mentioned. He researched the effect of Voyager I and II plasma-wave audio recordings of the planets for healing and emotional release. With tremendous effort and work, as well as scientific knowledge and know-how, he preserved the original planets sounds for all to hear and from which to benefit.

Dr. Thompson’s sound healing work has been well researched by many and very especially by research projects at the Neuropsychiatric Center at UCLA, the Royal Ottawa Sleep Research Center in Canada, and, as part of the nationally funded CSCAT Program, by Duke University and the University of Virginia. Dr. Thompson, a born educator and teacher, continues to speak widely on the use and benefit of sound used scientifically, teaches and trains clinicians, and continues his association with the Scripps Center for Integrative Medicine. His work continues in monumental ways, so check out www.neuroacoustic.com from time-to-time.

Gary Buchanan

Dr. Gary Robert Buchanan (b.1948) has since 1975 been researching and developing new technologies in alternative healing using light, color, sound, water, and subtle energies.
Web Sites: http://www.garyrobertbcuahanan.com and http://www.sonatherapy.com.

His two landmark texts on vibrational healing have now been circulated to therapists and researchers around the globe with attendant Sonatherapy® clinics being established in Japan, South Africa, Czech Republic, Britain, Australia, and the United States.

The books, SONA: Healing with Wave Front BIOresonance (2008) and Sonatherapy: Healing with Light, Color, Water, Sound & Subtle Energies (2012) are available at the web site: http://sonatherapy.com/shop/.
Beginning with doctoral studies in Cymatics, Synergetics, Physics, Perception, Psychology, Music, Medicine, Cosolargy®, and a host of interdisciplinary studies at the University of Washington in 1975-1976, Buchanan began compiling fundamental concepts and materials on the effects of vibrational entrainments and affectations upon and within the entity.

This led to his presentation at the university of a paper, “Perceptual Synergetics,” and thereafter a textbook, authored in 1978 at the Queensland Conservatorium in Brisbane, Australia – Wave Front Composition & Analysis. That paper and text were well-received by members of the Musicological Society of Australia and Britannica Society at the University of New South Wales in a 1978 conference.

Relocating to Reno, Nevada in 1979, Buchanan began working directly with Consociates of Cosolargy® International in further developing these technologies of Wave Front BIOresonance™. Preliminary archive publications by the International Community of Christ between 1979 and 1982 included studies in acoustics, mathematics, and archetypal geometry.

Those imprints, authored and co-authored by/with the late Stan Fortmeyer, were/are Solarized Numbers – The Super-Natural Metaphor of Organic Wholism, More on Solarized Numbers and Their Import, The Unified Field: Ultra-Dimensional Solar Determinism, Jamilian Cycologotry: Basic Premises, The Nun Crystal: Preliminary Draft and Materials, Archencyclical Cube-Root Extraction, and the ultimate tome: Primer of Mirror-Inversion and Archencyclical Mathesis (Copyright © 1982 The International Community of Christ.)

All of these papers and texts laid foundations for the healing arts, sciences, and technologies of what would later become the unique healing approach trade-marked by Cosolargy® International as Sonatherapy®.

For more info: www.scotthuckabay.com

Guitar Avatar, Scott Huckabay creates a contemporary, shamanistic musical style, inspiring trance states resonant with the heart chakra, creating sounds in an ancient frequency that induces feelings of love and healing.

Scott’s act is reminiscent of transcended master Michael Hedges meets Jimi Hendrix meets Ravi Shankar. He is a very rhythmic live looping performer, developing complex and energetic tribal progressions on his alternately tuned guitar. He takes the audience by surprise, leading them through dancing and joyous celebration into the realm of his celestial worship – the courtyard of the Divine. Various guitar tools assist in the journey of this vision caster from the land of Mu and his six stringed instrument of divination.

Each prayformance slowly brings the audience into his swirling, celebrating dance. And then he takes them to new heights – his love and adoration of the Great Spirit.

People often cry and or have profound life changing experiences at his performances, for the sheer power of the love in his song melts away their bitter sorrows, opening their hearts in this radiant love and joy. Scott once played inside the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt for whole earth healing. Scott Huckabay is rapidly gaining widespread recognition as the “Universal Guitarist for the Spiritual Renaissance.”

Scott never played guitar before a motorcycle accident left him partially paralyzed. His life dramatically changed after making a pact with God/Creator the moment before he hit the highway crashing at high speed. He woke up from being unconscious with a guitar mysteriously laid by his feet. As Scott touched the instrument, music began streaming through him. Experimenting like no guitarist would learn or imagine, Scott hit, kicked, scraped, and shook the instrument all over to pioneer novel ways to play the music he heard inside. Strumming, picking, and bowing the strings were used for his own accompaniment. The ensuing year, for his own healing and musical mastery, he communed daily with dolphins and whales in Hawaii, listening and learning their hydro-sonic secrets. His guitar became a physical extension, therapeutic invention, and spiritual blessing for Scott and civilization.

Lupito and Paul Utz

Lupito and Paul Utz are United Nations Peace Ambassadors sharing their message of love through the potent power of sound. He and Paul co-created the global company, Crystal Tones, where sound meets science.
Innovators of sonic therapy and vibrational medicine, they introduced a new generation of crystalline musical instruments to the world. And as part of the Kryon team, they released the Kryon alchemy bowl which is made up of Apophyllite, Moldavite, Morganite, Imperial Topaz, Platinum, Indigo and Silver designed to enhance your channeling abilities.

Lupito is dedicated to supporting all in achieving there highest potential. Born on December 12 (day of the mother), and founder of Crystal Tones, William Jones was given the name Lupito (after the Virgen de Guadalupe -the divine mother of Mexico) when he was recognized by Mexican Elders for holding the mother’s energy. This energy which is in all of us mirrors the healing and nurturing sounds from the Alchemy Crystal Singing Bowls. The Bowls represent the chalice, the feminine, while the mallet represents the masculine co-creating crystalline bridges of sound. Lupito reminds us that we each have the mother’s energy inside and to be conscious of how we embody it for example nurturing, caring, kindness, compassion, gratitude and our power of vulnerability. We get to access and activate our innate feminine and masculine qualities for synergy within ourselves and our environments. By allowing ourselves to be balanced in our feminine and masculine perspectives we open up to more possibilities and dimensions creating more enlightened ways of being.

Kimberly Bass
Accompanying herself with an array of gem infused crystal alchemy bowls; Kimberly Bass has developed an extraordinary style of harmonic singing that is in perfect synergy with the acoustic vibrations emanating from the bowls. Drawing from a lifetime’s vocal experience Kimberly’s mastery of harmony has been described as “other worldly, putting the listener into a transfixed eternal moment.” Her ancient celestial chants take us through harmonic sound portals where one may experience a high level of self-transformation. Kimberly’s unique style fuses her voice with the textures and frequencies of the crystal bowls, creating amazingly beautiful angelic music.

Dan Hansen
At 22, Hansen traveled to Kauai, where he met a flute maker who peaked his interest in exotic, handmade flutes.  Starting in 2005, Hansen traveled all over the Americas and parts of Asia, absorbing local cultures and traditions, initially searching for unique flutes, that were functional pieces of art. After a crash course in bamboo harvesting in the jungles of Kauai in 2009, the first “Root Flutes” were created and the search changed into a quest for collecting materials ranging from bamboos and crystals, to elk antler sheds and exotic wood, fossilized mammoth tusk and other fossilized materials. Hansen has harvested these materials to create his one of a kind instruments as he traveled in Mexico, Columbia, Ecuador, Peru, India, Kauai and Bali & more.  The act of playing these sacred flutes necessitates deep awareness of breath, drawing the player into the present. Conscious breath becomes sound, a kind of potent medicine. A vibration that reconnects us to our bodies and beings. To listen to Hansen play his handmade multi-tone flutes is to bear witness to a fundamental human undertaking: a ritual so pure and so absent from our modern, plugged in life.

Gary Cromp
The universe has led me do this work…. Playing crystal and 7 metal bowls, chimes and crystal harp. I have been led to several important frequency codes: the factor 9 grid and sacred solfeggio 528 matrix for the age of Aquarius. All the geometric shapes present on Mother Earth and some of the platonic solids as well. When factor 9 geometric shapes are played as a frequency they form an F# major cord in 3 part harmony… the most beautiful sound known to man. The solfeggio matrix is 528hz or LOVE in translation. Its roots are biblical known as Arch Angel Michael’s tones. These are the tones of this period. 7 metal Tibetan bowls are used to represent all of our planes in our solar system. A Tibetan woman pointed out to me how I’m playing Saturn with just the crystal bowls. This entire system is named the Chakra Rocket.

Residing in Berkeley currently I have to venture out to different vortexes such as Palm Springs, Landers, and Sedona to charge the bowls and store energy for the sound baths. The bowls are crystalline organisms that connect with us to align our chakras. I also place spheres that represent the chakras into the bowls to amplify into the frequency to spatialize a deeper connection to the light body and our world and universe. I will be having bowl players from all over the state coming to assist.
