The Belfast Yoga Studio will present musician and sound healer Lori LeBlanc in concert Friday, Aug. 19 from 7 to 7:45 p.m. at the studio, 424 Belfast Center, the big red and white building at 9 Field St.

As an artist and a musician, LeBlanc’s passion for music led her to explore the healing power of sound. The Tibetan singing bowls, from Nepal, are not only pleasing to the human ear, they also offer harmonic vibrations that support healing and balancing, said LeBlanc, who is certified in Polarity Therapy, BioSonic Repatterning and Tibetan Singing Bowl Therapy.

“This ancient practice allows us to access a meditative and physically relaxed state — a place where profound shifts can and do occur. These beautiful bowls invite us to open our hearts, clear our minds and enter the deep well of silence,” she said.

Over the years, LeBlanc’s passion for music led her to explore the healing power of music and she has been a sound healer and a licensed massage therapist and since 1994. In her practice she has used vocal toning, tuning forks, the didgeridoo, drums, bells and gongs as tools for healing. More recently, inspired by her teacher Shree Krishna Shahi, a third-generation singing bowl master from Nepal, LeBlanc has offered singing bowl therapy to both groups and individuals.

Suggested donation for the concert is on a sliding scale of $15 to $5. For more information on the concert or her work, contact LeBlanc at Lori7bowls@gmail.com or 208-7492.
