Ami Sciulli

A student of Reiki and the healing arts since 1987, Ami says: "I feel in resonance with the healing energies when activating the quartz crystal bowls. In so doing, I become a conduit, sonically showering the listeners with the potential for expanded consciousness, enhanced synchronicity and sublime joy. Sounding the quartz crystal bowls with Life in Balance is my work and destiny. Performing with my husband, Steve, is my joy."
