‘The Alchemy of Sound’ was founded as an Australian business owned and operated by Pratika Kshemya, who now lives in Roi-et Province, NE Thailand.
The therapeutic properties of sound are increasingly being scientifically verified as technological advances allow for more in-depth studies. These studies confirm the age-old wisdom of the importance of music and sound as a ‘healing’ modality for creating at the deepest cellular level a re-balancing of mental, physical, psychological and emotional states to restore well being.
Pratika is dedicated to offering transformative sound in a variety of forms to provide individuals and groups with uplifting, enjoyable, therapeutic experiences – whether it be through original recorded music created by Pratika, or through interaction at home with your own easy-to-play Freenotes Wings, vibrational tuning forks and exquisite Koshi Wind Chimes – the sounds of which will captivate your heart and enhance your world in so many beneficial ways.
Pratika’s focus in the field of sound therapy is based on profound experiences realised after 20 years as a monk with his Indian meditation teacher and spiritual master. These extraordinary years were filled with extended meditation retreats and the highest transformative frequencies of meditative music, offered by his teacher in free global Peace Concerts. Pratika was also a member of international choirs singing his teachers’ meditative compositions.
Embracing these realisations and more awakening experiences with meditation, sound and Light since, Pratika as a member of the International Sound Healers Association is dedicated to exploring all forms of vibrational therapy for bringing connection, harmony and balance in people’s lives.
Pratika now focuses his attentions on the latest therapy device incorporating sound and Light as vibrational tools for profound personal transformation – The Ajna Pineal Light. This extraordinary device which incorporates – Light, vibration, meditation and relaxation is rapidly being purchased and used by therapists around the world.
