A beautiful sound bath to help reduce stress and uplift spirits.

Both Margaret and Jamie are Reiki practitioners, so all their sound baths are infused with the universal energy of Reiki healing.
The session starts with a musical meditation for peace and healing, then gently flows into the healing sounds of harps combined with the penetrating vibrations of crystal bowls and many other healing instruments. Be enfolded in the sounds of the angels.
Margaret Germain is a harpist, pianist, and singer with a long history of composing and performing gentle spiritual music to open, inspire, and heal. She has used the energy of the healing harp to heal her own broken heart, to reach and connect with disabled children, to comfort hospice patients, and to bring large congregations into a prayerful presence. She now uses her skills to create a healing and uplifting atmosphere for those attending her sound baths. Margaret started playing harp 28 years ago to recover from grief after a series of a dozen miscarriages, and then joyfully continued playing after her son was born. She is the mother of 26 year old Ben. Margaret has a Bachelor of Music degree from Northwestern University, is a Certified Therapeutic Musician, Sound Healer, and Reiki practitioner.
Margaret met Jamie Besterfield at Prana Yoga five years ago at a Kirtan, and they have been singing together ever since. Jamie is a singer, sound healer, and Reiki practitioner.

Margaret and Jamie play multiple instruments to surround the listeners with the deep vibrations of healing sound.
Margaret is a Certified Therapeutic Musician, Certified Sound Healer, and Reiki practitioner. She specializes in playing gentle relaxing harp music. For this special and beautiful program, she draws on her experience as a Therapeutic Musician for patients in care centers and her years of playing harp at spiritual centers, churches and synagogues. She also has a strong calling to using healing harp music through her own experience in healing herself by gently playing her harp. Margaret now plays for your healing, relaxation, and enjoyment. She is joined by her husband, Jamie Besterfield, who brings his own healing energy and spiritual background to the sessions. Together, they play multiple harps and crystal bowls with other compatible instruments and sing healing songs and mantras with harmonium in beautiful harmony to create a soothing “sound bath” designed to uplift and focus healing energy.
Margaret began her Healing Harps journey many years ago after suffering a devastating series of twelve miscarriages.To help her through the loss, she bought her first harp, a Lyon and Healy Celtic harp. “Every day when I came home from teaching, I sat and hugged that harp, pouring my sadness and grief into it.Holding it, feeling the vibrations in my body, touching the strings, resting my face against its side, hearing the sadness of my heart in the gentle sounds of the strings… I played my soul back to life.And then, after a dozen heartbreaks, I was able to bring a pregnancy to full term and gave birth to my son, Ben.He’s 26 now.” It has been proven through clinical studies in the medical and psychological fields that sound can help improve healing, depression, anxiety, memory and other physical and mental conditions. Harp therapy is especially powerful in reducing stress and anxiety. The vibrations of the 46 string concert harp, combined with the Celtic and Angel harps, bell-like tones of melodic percussion, and harmonium, produce an energy that resonates deep in the body.
