We are specialists in the nature of sound and music as a healing vehicle, and understand the principals of sound therapies, gaining great accreditation at this time.

Zacciah Blackburn, PhD, is our founder and owner, and resident therapist, sound educator and flute maker.

Zacciah is Director of Education for the International Sound Healing Network, and has extensive ability to help with instruments typical to the therapeutic sound healing profession. We have other qualified assistants on staff to help with your selection, and have had a number of fine individuals help us through the years with preparation and finish work, exhibitions, office administration and shipping, and are grateful to their dedication and service in creating and building this practice.

Zacciah was guided at an early age to change his life to a more spiritually based existence. Soon after, he was introduced to the bamboo flute, and migrated to the beautiful mountains of New England in the mid 70's. While seeking to share his love for the rich and soothing qualities of the flute, he made and gave flutes to his friends and neighbors. The demand for his work grew, as did his love for flutemaking, as he was introduced to more and more bamboo wind instruments of the world. it was inevitable that he would become a flutemaker. Over the years, Zacciah developed his unique style of craftsmanship, created the bamboo saxophone, and exhibited his work at major fine art, craft and music festivals and galleries across the nation. He has won numerous awards for his work.

But, moreso, through those years, he was exposed to more and more world music tradtions, and the ways other cultures use music and sound healing to enhance deep meditative states, enrich one's life with rich connection, communion, and appreciation for Nature and the nature of the Living Cosmos, as well as creating extraordinary states of wellness and healing. He gathered knowledge and experiential skills with master teachers, musicians, and elders of Native American, African, Hindu, Tibetan, Cabbalistic, and other wisdom based traditions, as well as contemporary holistic modalities.

He integrated this into a therapeutic sound healing practice, and over the years has created professional skill development and educational programs through our sister organization, the Center of Light.  You can view more about this work through these pages, as well as the Center of Light web site.


Perhaps Zacciah's greatest reward has been the overwhelmingly positive responses we get from you. Thank you.

It is indeed a blessing to be able to provide you with unique quality instruments of the world, derived from our deep love of each instrument, and commitment to the cultural and spiritual heritage which each reflects, and which we, through this work, have been so connected to.

May your musical and life journey be a rich one.
