Sound Meditation Practitioner
As seen in FORBES, USA TODAY & OPRAH DAILY
Welcome to my site. I’m so glad you are here!
I am an international Sonic Alchemist and Facilitator of Vibrational Wellness.
What does that mean?
I am the creator of the SONIC LEAP® method. This form of sound meditation works to promote harmonic well-being through the use of auditory stimulation. By replicating elemental frequencies found in nature, I assist you to mentally “take flight” by organizing and balancing the energetics of the body.
Through the use of overtone-emitting instruments, my methodology allows for a shifting of consciousness to occur. The result is a mental clarity and focus that enables you to “leap over” all that is impeding you in thought and action. A journey with sound deeply relaxes the body – triggers the imagination, provides mental acuity, and allows for the expansion of creativity. Most importantly, it fosters a connection to one’s intuition and higher self.
ALCHEMY is based on the belief that there are four basic elements in nature: air, fire, water and earth. An ancient practice shrouded in mystery and secrecy of turning base metals into gold, it was a keystone of modern science. A Practitioner of alchemy is often defined as, “One who transforms things for the better, often in ways that cannot be explained”.
Much like a musical instrument, the human body often goes “out of tune”. Stress, exhaustion, jet-lag, creative blocks, and competition in the workplace all can take their toll. Disharmony becomes illness.
My work assists in eliminating discord with the use of organized sound played around the body. All frequencies and tones created in my SONIC LEAP® method are made with live acoustic instruments and voice. Nothing is prerecorded, digitized or plugged in. Unlike meditation apps or recordings, there are NO radio/electromagnetic waves (REMF’s and EMF’s) added to disrupt cellular harmony.
Having traveled to over 35 countries, my clients span the globe – from CEO’s, Olympic athletes to royalty – notably those in high-stress jobs from the worlds of politics, finance, law, entertainment, fashion, real estate, literary and hospitality all seeking ways to center their bodies and minds quickly and effectively.
Did you know that hearing is the first sense to develop in utero?
Scientific research has shown that shown that auditory processing continues for up to fifteen minutes post-death.
Sound and Frequency affect us at all stages of life. With additional certification in Integrative Thanatology, I have a special interest in sonically assisting those transitioning at the end-of-life. My work can be performed bedside for those confined to Hospice and Palliative Care.
As a performing artist having withstood debilitating injuries, I have a deep understanding and knowledge of structural alignment and energy meridians in the body. I follow the roadmap of the body to assist those seeking energetic balance.
The foundation of my work is rooted in over twenty years as a performer and professional musician in New York City – having been heard as a vocalist in jazz clubs, theaters, on radio and television. Having studied film scoring and composition, one of my favorite pursuits involves listening, incorporating and replicating the gentle sounds found in nature. Since early childhood, a favorite pastime was to be in conversation with wildlife – discovering and differentiating the multi-rhythms of birds, owls, snakes, water and wind – each with their own language.
Although Sonic Alchemy is different from “music”, I believe everyone – from infants to the elderly – can benefit from the deep listening involved in this work.
The power of sound and frequency work is transformational.
SONIC LEAP® sessions are experienced in private, couple, and group settings utilizing frequencies from overtone emitting instruments such as crystal singing bowls, gongs, voice, and a variety of indigenous hand percussion played around the circumference of the body and the room. There is no direct contact on the body from me. I do not place instruments on the body – as by law in many states of the USA, this requires a massage therapy license in a Spa setting. A SONIC LEAP session is an entirely hands-free, no-touch experience for the recipient.
As a MUSIC ARTIST, I offer solo vocal performances for festivals, benefits, memorials, symposiums, corporate wellness events – and the like. I have cultivated specific repertoire from The Great American Songbook – jazz and pop songs – while accompanying myself instrumentally on Alchemy crystal singing bowls. Whether it is the celebration of love or the passing of a life, I wish to honor these occasions in an innovative and deeply reflective way.
Michelle Pirret delivers a soothing tonal palette to those that are receiving sonic offerings. In solo performance her vocal accompaniment are Alchemy Crystal Singing bowls created by Crystal Tones®™ for whom she is a brand Ambassador. In concert, the sounds produced by her ensemble of over four dozen crystal instruments is likened to hearing an angelic choir – with each individual bowl having a unique voice with variations in tones and pitch.
