It’s this very notion of transformative & experiential travel that inspired our Namaste Love Tigerlily Resort Collection... EXPERIENCES THAT SPAN LEISURE-TIME, SIGHTSEEING, EXPLORATION OF NEW LANDS CURATED WITH AN ELEMENT OF INNER REFLECTION AND SELF-DISCOVERY. A YOGA OR MEDITATION RETREAT, HOLISTIC TREATMENTS AND RITUALS....
Sound therapy has been used for centuries for healing and meditation. We were fortunate to experience this healing practice while in Ibiza. Iuri Nencioni, a passionate yoga practitioner and therapist specializing in ancient healing traditions learnt from wandering shamans from India, China, Tibet and Bali, led us through a sound bath meditation with his Tibetan singing bowls…
Originally from Italy, what drew you to Ibiza?
My first trip to Ibiza was actually a business trip, a client living on the island called me for treatments. I was recommended by another client and I decided to go more because I knew nothing about this place and was curious to explore. Then when I got to Ibiza, the beauty of the island and the magic of its energy literally stole my heart.
Tell us a little bit about life in Ibiza?
Life in Ibiza is a very connected with nature and the people. Nature is relaxing and the people, your friends, become your family, nurturing you. When the tourist season is off you have a lot of time for yourself and then when spring comes you work a lot to sustain yourself for all year. That is a big difference because from April until October you barely have time to see all your friends or take time for yourself! But once you know it works like that, well you get used to it. I love to live in Ibiza.
How did you become involved in holistic healing?
Many years ago I realized that I have healing abilities. Divine Grace works through the vehicle of this body that I am incarnating. I started to have signals as I started my yoga and meditation practice, Once your awareness is arising and you welcome these gifts into your daily life, well, there is no turning back. I started to follow these signals and I was guided by simply listening to my inner voice. Therefore, I quit my previous life and dedicated myself totally to what I am doing today: ancient healing traditions from shamans from Asia.
What are some of the benefits of sound healing and how does it work?
Sound healing works through the beneficial vibrational frequency of Om (Aum). Tibetan Singing bowls are designed to produce this sound and every bowl produces different versions (notes) of the same sound of Om. According to the Hindu tradition, Om is the sound that shapes the non manifested Divine (Purusha) into our dual reality (Prakriti) which we humans can easily experience through our sense. Om is a pure vibration which is able to balance, energize, therefore cure.
As one vibrates the bowls on another person's body this subtle form of energy actually travels everywhere in that person, going through everything, tissues, muscles bones, organs, areas, and also energetic and nervous system. It goes through every single cell, kind of wiping them, helping them to "drink" this pure form of energy in the form of vibration. They actually enter in resonance with it and eventually some form of healing may occur.
Are there ways we can use the principles of sound therapy in our daily lives?
Yes, of course, we as humans can produce vibrations using our throat (location of Vishuddi chakra, the throat chakra) and actually singing or chanting or humming Om. This is how you can activate a sound healing by feeling, acknowledging and welcoming a self-produced vibration: as you sing the Om many many times you can keep your eyes closed and FEEL it, SEE it, going through every part of your body. Visualization and feeling it literally going through and healing is FUNDAMENTAL.
What are some of your favourite sounds?
The waves of the ocean, the wind blowing, the rain falling, birds singing, a beautiful voice singing.
