More on the sanctuary and Sha’ari:
Our beautiful and serene studio in West Seattle incorporates both Asian and Northwest Coastal Native American design characteristics. With a resonating chamber and healing stone mandala installed beneath the floor, the structure was uniquely designed to maximize acoustical properties and healing potential. The studio houses dozens of instruments from around the world including five rare Paiste Planet and Sound Creation gongs.
