Think of a tone, sound, or piece of music that you love, and try to reproduce it in your mind, vocalize it, or play it for yourself. Bring your awareness to the quality of the sound, and the way it makes you feel. Then try to describe WHY it makes you feel this way. It is fairly difficult to put into words the emotions that sounds stir in us! Whether a sound or tone is pleasing or displeasing to the body, it affects us. It is fascinating to meditate with sound or use certain sound frequencies for specific purposes and note the changes that take place mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. Sound is energy, and energy moves us all…sometimes in extraordinary ways.

“When you allow sound to move through you, it unlocks a doorway and allows information to flood into your body…when you create harmonics of sound, it reminds your body of something. It reminds your body of light, of deep cosmic love, and of other worlds. Your body comes into joy and sometimes overwhelming sadness. It seeks and accesses a frequency that it has been longing for, which the sound has reminded it of.”
-from Bringers of the Dawn, quote by Barbara Marciniak
Three years ago I walked thru the doors of the Center for the first time. I remembered feeling like I just walked into a special place. Surrounded by the beauty of the stones and crystal’s, took me back to my childhood. The energy they where giving off was nostalgic and wonderful! The Center became a special place to go through the years when I needed a pick-me-up. Fast forward to today. I get the privilege of being the store manager. The Center has blossomed into a mecca healing center. Not only do you get to experience the beauty of the stones, crystal’s and other merchandise. We offer many types of healing here. Sound, Reiki, Meditation, Readings, classes and more! The Center’s mission is to make sure everyone who walks through our doors knows they are Love and Loved. It is here to help facilitate your journey to health and happiness.
Orgone (/ˈɒrɡoʊn/) is a spiritual concept variously described as an esoteric energy or hypothetical universal life force. Originally proposed in the 1930s by Wilhelm Reich,and developed by Reich’s student Charles Kelley after Reich’s death in 1957, orgone was conceived as the anti-entropic principle of the universe, a creative substratum in all of nature comparable to Mesmer’s animal magnetism (1779), to the Odic force (1845) of Carl Reichenbach and to Henri Bergson’s élan vital (1907).Orgone was seen as a massless, omnipresent substance, similar to luminiferous aether, but more closely associated with living energy than with inert matter. It could allegedly coalesce to create organization on all scales, from the smallest microscopic units—called “bions” in orgone theory—to macroscopic structures like organisms, clouds, or even galaxies.
Reich argued that deficits or constrictions in bodily orgone were at the root of many diseases, much as deficits or constrictions in the libido could produce neuroses in Freudian theory. Reich founded the Orgone Institute ca. 1942 to pursue research into orgone energy after he immigrated to the US in 1939, and used it to publish literature and distribute material relating to the topic for more than a decade. Reich designed special “orgone accumulators”—devices ostensibly collecting and storing orgone energy from the environment—for improvement of general health or even for weather control.
The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health lists orgone as a type of “putative energy”. After Reich’s death, research into the concept of orgone passed to some of his students such as Kelley and later to a new generation of scientists in Germany keen to discover an empirical basis for the orgone hypothesis, (the first positive results of which were provided in 1989 by Stefan Muschenich). There is no empirical support for the concept of orgone in medicine or the physical sciences, and research into the concept ceased with the end of the Institute.

About Amy: I am an artist who has been focused on personal transformation for most of my life. When I was introduced to SoulCollage® in 2017, my artistic and spiritual pursuits found Sacred Space within this incredible modality. SoulCollage® has allowed me the opportunity to discover in a creative and playful way, my Soul – that which I truly am. It’s a process of self-discovery that is so simple yet powerful, leading to integration and wholeness. I am so grateful to be able to share this process with others.
