Search for Integrative Healing:
Passionate about integrative healing, in 2000 Diáne was powerfully drawn to the ancient Tibetan tradition of sound in healing. She was taught and certified by a master and pioneer in this tradition, Richard Rudis, founder of Sacred Sound Workshops. Rudis found in Diáne a worthy protégé and requested that she continue this healing work. She has since traveled to Nepal several times to immerse herself in the culture of these instruments.
Diáne's childhood and early life gave her a deep sensibility to sound. Born of a French mother and American father (spending her childhood between Southern France and the US), her innate attunement to sound deepened with the influence of these two cultures. As she matured, she was attracted to further explore sound and rhythm through movement and dance, and was particularly drawn to the polyrhythms of African and Latin music. During her extensive travels, she came face to face, heart to heart, with these cultures. Later she obtained her Master's Degree in cross-cultural communication, with a thesis on African music.
Diáne's search for a way to help people on a deep level eventually led her to include a broad range of methods in healing that integrate body, mind and spirit. She studied and assisted in presenting several workshops on Energy Balancing at the Kripalu Yoga Center and received certification in Polarity Therapy from the Polarity Realization Institute in Ipswitch, MA. She also incorporates guided visualization and focused dialog as an experienced Life Coach.
Diáne Mandle, a Polarity practitioner and a Life Coach, integrated Himalayan/Tibetan Bowl Sound Healing into her practice in 2000 after completing a two year course of study at the Sacred Sound Workshops. Prior to that she was the Regional Director of the American Cancer Society for Western Massachusetts and the Chamber of Commerce Director in Amherst.
After relocating to California Diáne established a private practice integrating Polarity, Sound Healing and Coaching and in 2004 became California's first State Certified Tibetan Bowl Practitioner/Instructor. Her work includes educational workshops, trainings and concerts nationally. Presently associated with the San Diego Cancer Center as one of its Complementary Therapy Team members she offer regular sessions to their patients. To date she has produced three acclaimed CD's, ‘Return to Om' and ‘Sarasvati's Dream' and ‘Being Well: The Journey', as well as two books ‘Ancient Sounds for a New Age: Introduction to Himalayan Sacred Sound Instruments' and 'How to Clear Space with Sound Using Tibetan Bowls & Tingshas'.
Diáne has appeared on numerous radio and television programs, been published in a multitude of journals, magazines and blogs and has traveled to Nepal and India to select high quality instruments and expand her understanding of the originating culture and healing modality. In June of 2008 in answer to an increasing demand for skilled sound healing practitioners she, in association with Sacred Sound Workshops, opened the Tibetan Bowl Sound Healing School. The schools mission is to help create and maintain a high standard of practice with the Sacred Sound Instruments.
