Hi Mari,  I wanted to thank you for the wonderful and mysterious solstice ceremony a week and a half ago. It was expansive and interesting and gave me some new questions to ask myself!   Also, please include me in any future emails about other events you're offering. 

Thank you, In joy,

My husband and I felt pulled to incorporate a special moment in our wedding day that would allow us to pause and be grounded in the moment. I am so grateful to have found Mari in my search to create that very feeling. 
Mari brought her gift of music therapy to our wedding and played her crystal bowls for a full 2 minutes following my dad giving me away. It is hard to put into words Mari's gift. Her music is angelic, pure and so serene. 
Mari's music allows you to tune into your body, to experience things in such a raw form. 
The bowls had such a powerful affect not only over my husband and I, but over several of our guests as well.  
From what I understand, music therapy has the ability to impact individuals in a number of ways. One is to heal emotional trauma. To quote a powerful experience from one of our guests: "Your wedding has fundamentally changed how I see the world. I've removed myself from the pro-hunting community aside from a few personal friends. I'm seeing my relationships with people much more purely. I've sold my guns...I think you and your wife finally brought me home from war."

Sound bath with crystal bowls and gong for wedding. Mari was adaptable and open to work with and it was a wonderful addition to our wedding ceremony.

This will be a great event! Mari Fix is an amazing sound vessel for energy shifting & healing. I would love to attend, yet kind of far these days to the OC. To all my tribe brothers & sisters near the Irvine area- definitely attend its worth the experience.

It was an amazing night! Thank you.

"During the Sound Bath, healing energy shot through my arm, and straightened it. I am healed! Amazing."

"This was a great experience ! Combining a gong bath with another indigenous healer's practices is a wonderful idea. I found this gong bath to be unlike any I'd experienced so far. It was carefully designed to address not only your sense of hearing but other senses as well. Sent me easily into a trance-like state of deep relaxation and helped me feel at peace with my life. Thank you!"

Thanks a million Mari

Appreciate your care and dedication 🙏

I have to say that last night while trying to sleep, I felt a lot of energy vibrations and flowing downwards and I think out of my legs... instantly I thought that must be Mari working on finalizing the ceremony... am I right? 

Could that be it?

Sending you light - H.N.

from Mari: Ceremony completed last night as you guessed.


"Wonderful experience!  I still experience tremendous calm, serenity, and clarity. Thank You! "

About the Forest Bathing Sound Bath: "The outdoor sound bath was phenomenal (wild life friends joined in). I enjoyed contact with plants and watching little butterflies flutter among purple and yellow flowers.  The 

hills are beautiful green after the rainy winter.  And the group was such nice people led by very informative 

and nice Mari."

My ancestors spoke to me with the calling of the ancestors part of the ceremony and told me I was loved.  I had felt so alone before that.  I now feel like I can proceed into my heart's vision.  Thank you so much.

"I have a friend who was at the class last Friday and she was in total awe and cannot wait for the next one It sounded amazing from outside … your voice is amazing!!!"

"The sound bath I attended was life changing. I would recommend it to anyone and everyone."

Sandra Enriquez

 

"I have meditated for a decade with some of the greatest spiritual teachers alive but this sound concert aloud me without any effort, to go into one of the most profound, full body meditations that I have ever been in. It was extremely relaxing and unmistakably tangible. To be this relaxed must be healing. I loved the exotic instrumentation. A shamanic ritual can't be better than this!!! You don't have to believe anything, just be open. "

John C

 

"The other night was fantastic!!

I came in with a very heavy heart and left with clarity and love ! I so appreciate that you let us keep the crystal. I infused a message to myself, and I'm constantly reminded of the message with the crystal. My message was along the lines of --- Stop seeking love. Seek to GIVE love, with no thought or need to receive any love in return. Have a beautiful day and looking forward to seeing you again!"

Love, Chip, K.E.

"A truly uplifting and realigning experience.  A deep heart-felt thanks to all for providing such a special

"The best vibrational sound bath that I have attended - Mari and Stephen make it special with their amazing energy healing abilities and attunement with sound - thank you "

Barb Jo

"I have heard amazing things about Sound Bath events from a lot of my friends. What I experienced with Mari's performance left me completely speechless and in pure bliss. That was one of the most profound sound journeys I have ever experienced. It is actually pretty difficult to find right words that would adequately capture the whole experience. I can understand, now why people keep coming back again and again. It is profound, beautiful, vibrant and can be life changing. Mari's Sound Bath is beyond anything else, I experienced. It helped me to open up and connect to my deepest truth, it made me cry and it made me laugh. It is a journey that is unforgettable. Please, go and experience yourself. You will understand what I mean."

When you called in the Ancestors, my grandmother came to me and touched me.  I came in with a lot of fear that has been with me for years.  When I think about the situations that caused me fear, I don't feel anymore fear at all !

testimonials from venues, industry professionals

and elders

 

Roxanne Hunt, Wedding Officiate:

" Mari is an amazing sound healer and wonderful addition to any event. She played her bowls at the beginning of a wedding I officiated and she set such a tranquil and sacred tone for the ceremony. Everyone loved it~! It was unique, calming and a beautiful way to sit in solitude without a traditional song, greeting or prayer. Mari is a lovely person, gifted healer and blessing to any event. I highly recommend her services." 

Roy Gibbon, Spiritual Organizer and Shumei America Representative:

"Late last year, Mari was one of the key speakers at a global warming conference held at Shumei Hall in Pasadena.  Her talk, “The Challenge of  Respect,”  on how consciousness affects the planet and our reality was based on scientific data, and on the new theories of quantum physics.   The  talk was  fascinating and informative and led the audience to question just how much that their expectations may affect and influence their perception of  reality.   After the talk Mari came onto the stage to entrance us with her music.   If I were to describe this music I would say that it was nothing short of stunning.  I  remember it had been a generally dull day of scientific lectures and when Mari came onto the stage it really brought the energy in the room up.  We were  all mesmerized.  I felt transfixed and propelled into another realm.  It was like I woke up and wasn’t sleeping anymore.  Things became vibrant.  As if that was not enough, she got people to join in and improvise with her.   It was incredible to hear all these voices moving together and creating this magical  presence.  For a long time afterward, I kept hearing about how much people were affected by her presentation.  Her work is so unique that I highly recommend her to you.   I hope to support her new work by having her perform here again and to give a workshop for the public and our supporters.

 

Spiritual Teacher, Spanda Makt: Caught in the act...of prayer. Attending private home concert by Mari Fix. "Mari is one of the very few...many people perform with gong, bowls, etc….Mari is that rare, true Sound Shaman"

 

Howard Richman, former Instructor at California Institute of the Arts and Dean of Music at International Sports Science Institute.  "I have never seen anyone who surrenders to their music more than you do." (Speaking to Mari).  "You are so intuitive, you can counsel people to find their true path."

 

David Welch, Movie Producer;  The Peaceful Warrior:  "Your work is amazing."  

 

Grant Associate for the City of Glendale: (about Mari’s Sound Work) "While watching your reel, it is apparent that you don’t care at all about what people think of you. So many people pretend to be Shamans and I get grant applications for that type of thing all the time. I can feel, that you however, are a real medicine person."

 

Chinese Chi Kung Master, friend of Acclaimed International Painter, Diana Wong: (about Mari’s Sound Work) "Your work is like mine, we are doing the same thing! I would follow you to the ends of the earth."

"Thank you everyone who joined us last night for an amazing "Sound Bath" with Mari Fix from Fragrance of Sound. It was beautiful! I will post some pictures on the Laughing Lotus Events Facebook page."

Lisa Hansen

 

Yuan Miao, Tibetan Buddhist Master: "You are doing a very high Buddhist Practice. We are cut from the same cloth."

 

Spanda Makt, Founder of Soul Based Living:  "Some people pretend to be healers."  "You (referring to Mari) are the real deal." 
 

Hermano Vidal, Mayan Medicine Man and Elder, Peru: "So many people have sold out. You are a true Elder."

 

Robert Fisher, Author of the Knight in Rust Armor; writer for Groucho Marx, George Burns and Lucille Ball: (About Mari) "One day you will be famous."  "I can see you playing music in front 50 thousand people."  "You are an amazing channel for healing."  2006.

 

A Native American Elder, at the Philosophical Research Society event:  (About Mari's work)  "I have never seen any music this strong." 

 

William Gazecki, Roman Polanski’s Videographer

"Delicious; Mari Fix's work is very evolved and effective."

 

Patricia Martinez: "Mari and Esteban gifted our Art opening with exquisite sacred music. The performance was so synchronistic that the photographer even took magical shots of the performance. The guests all reported to me that they were transported into a state of stillness and wonder. You could have heard a pin drop. Guests later stood around talking about what they experienced. Kaiumari and Esteban are truly committed to what they do and draw you into the experience. Truly breathtaking."

Teresa 

"I spoke with several people that had been to the Sound Bath, and I just wanted to get their input and It was very positive; people really loved it; a lot of people said they would want to do it again and different highlights that they mentioned.  It was really beautiful and thank you so much for your energy."

 

C. & B. Miller, from F.O.U.G.

"What a glorious evening we spent with you!  It was beautifully (and Bill added, "professionally") 

 presented. We especially enjoyed the Friday the 13th additions and the lovely and colorful atmospheric decorations as the scaffolding for your incredible singing and the vibrational sounds of the Tibetan bowls and those magnificent gongs. The shamanic blessings were a wonderful opener. Every part of us felt blessed by the experience. Any possibility you might have an mp3 we might purchase of the singing and the bowl/gong sounds? What a wonderful meditation that would facilitate! Thank you both again. We can only imagine how long it took to set up that lovely environment... besides all the preparations that went into that performance. Wow!"
