Healing Wave Trio concerts are designed to help you relax, unwind and bring your attention to the music as a meditative tool.

Founded by Bernadette Yao in 2014, the Healing Wave Trio uses specially designed music and compositions to create a meditative and deeply relaxing experience. The trio is made up of founder Bernadette Yao on vocals and guitar, Deanna Johnson on flute, and Rebecca Swett on harp. Bernadette’s extensive training in both music and energy healing at the Barbara Brennan School of Healing, combined with the incredible talents of classically trained Deanna Johnson and Rebecca Swett come together to create a peaceful oasis promoting balance and healing.

Beneficial effects include: Reduced levels of stress, release of endorphins which could work as “natural pain relievers”, deeper relaxation, improves focus, uplifts mood, deepens connection to spirit, opens intuitive awareness of self. When the mind relaxes, the body follows.

Chanting in Sanskrit (from book The Yoga of Sound by Russill Paul): “They are luminous presences of auditory energy that simply exist in the universe, like vast and pervasive galaxies. When we use Sanskrit mantras, our normal perception of the world dissolves and we awaken to the spiritual fields of energy represented by the sounds. When we use Sanskrit, we connect our soul to numerous yogis and spiritual teachers who have employed this language in their own self-transformation”.
