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.

SOUND HEALING
MUSICIANS

Kevin James

The Songs and mantras of Kevin James Carroll are an invitation to co-create a deep connection to the heart and a positive healing vibration for oneself and the world.

Weaving ancient Mantras with his own Heart Songs. They are a gift to the many hearts remembering the ONE. An expression of the movement of realization that is spreading across the planet right now.

Kevin’s music is a world fusion of devotional chanting, drawing upon influences from traditional Indian Kirtan, Rainbow Bhajans, Celtic and Sufi chants mixed with western folk sounds and world instruments.

This is a movement that honors the ancient cultures and religions of the world, embracing their commonality… their Oneness.

Each Heartsong is a modern devotional Hymn, a song of clear intent and purpose: to expand awareness beyond the thinking mind, to enter the bliss of the heart.

Kevin James’ voice is touching, warm and loving at each moment – authentic and straight from the heart. He sings for you, he sings to your soul, and you will feel an immediate warm embrace which lets you feel cozy, protected and within a realm where sorrows have no weight anymore. – Sat Nam Europe

She facilitates deeply transformative retreat experiences, 1-1 sessions, and mentors individuals, teachers, coaches and healers.

Her healing methodology is extremely effective at neutralizing pain and relaxing the nervous system so the frequency of the client, a space or group of people, can rise into more freedom. This experience greatly assists to induce the self healing process, releasing tension, shame, lack, fear, stuck emotional energy, and other sources of chronic pain, stress & anxiety from the body-mind-spirit.

Hailing from a long line of Filipino faith healers, her training in Energy Medicine began as a young adult when she was diagnosed with chronic illness. She found herself over-achieving, over-stimulated, and in an over-worked environment. This caused her to travel the world, leaving her corporate American life to pursue a deeply Spiritual path. After much self investigation and receiving the help and training of Masterful teachers, she began to unlock her spiritual gifts, wisdoms, and the healing power behind her Voice to effect the greatest possible healing or activation. Through her practice, she has assisted countless other’s in achieving healing and inner illumination. She sees true healing as a deeply personal transformation into wholeness and holds the door open for others to gracefully find the light within.

In the beginning of her practice, Jamie Lu integrated her clinical and intuitive training to shift chronic illness with Sound, Her Voice, and a Mystical knowledge of Energy Medicine.

Now she offers immersive trainings for women, healers, empaths, and sensitives to accelerate their inner growth and empower their spiritual gifts, unique purpose, voices and leadership.

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.
