About Us

Linda

The pursuit of silence has been my journey. When I heard my first Himalayan singing bowl played, the most remarkable thing occurred, the chattering in my head stopped. The vibration and tones, which vary with each bowl, took me on a journey where words are not necessary. I had gone to a place of remembering silence, without the thought of remembering. What was amazing is that I found it easier than meditation. No effort was needed.

So inspired by the singing bowl, I traveled all across the country to find them. It wasn’t long before I had quite a few antique bowls in my care. With the help of others who are experts in the field of singing bowls and putting in my own time, I have developed various harmonic sets that I use in my own practice. It has become a loving passion to share this gift of vibrational silence with others.

I am a graduate of the Singing Bowl Master Level Program developed by Mitch Nur, Ph.D. This program gives students an understanding of the cultural uses, history, scientific evaluation, and application of both ancient and modern Himalayan Singing Bowls.​ Dr. Nur is also instrumental in teaching the very same elements about the use of gongs in our practices. As a result, I have added more gongs to my collection that round out the entire sound experience.

My journey into sound therapy was based largely on my desire to support my wife’s path of helping others through singing bowls and gongs. My own career as a Psychotherapist and Administrator for Mental Health Programs over the past 40 years provided me with some insight into her desire to find a path that gave her personal meaning and a way to help others. Little did I know that we would end up on this path together.

One day, as we were setting up her gongs for a practice session, Linda asked me if I wanted to try playing the gongs. I told her I was happy being her “roadie” and that I was content just doing the heavy lifting. Long story short, I took a few short lessons from her and the next thing I knew, we were composing a gong presentation. We arranged to perform a Gong Meditation for a couple of groups over a weekend and received many positive reviews by its participants.

We traveled one weekend to Santa Fe and Taos, New Mexico to hear gong concerts presented by her Teacher Mitch Nur. After that I enrolled in Mitch’s “Gong Camp” and am now pursuing my own certification as a Master Gong Practitioner, utilizing both my skills as a Psychotherapist and as a Sound Therapist. It is an exciting prospect to pursue a joint adventure with my Life Partner.

We attended an hour long immersion. Delightful! Much of the sound wasn't what I would have thought could come from gongs. Must be experienced to be appreciated.

A beautiful experience that puts you into an altered state of consciousness. they create remarkable sounds when playing the gongs, almost like a musical instrument, but of course with greater resonance.

Have been to two of the sound journeys now and they were truly the most beautiful and transcendental experiences I've participated in. Especially if you're traveling and just passing through Pagosa Springs, this experience is a MUST. Nowhere in the world will you find this exact experience because the gongs and instruments used are one of a kind and hand chosen by the facilitators, who are masters of the practice.

I attended a very heartfelt, authentic sound healing event including gongs, harp and short guided meditation. The space and the hosts provided all that was needed for profound shifts in energy to occur. I left feeling blessed and uplifted. Thanks!

A very profound and beautiful experience. I feel transported to the depths of the ocean with the whales and also inward to a place of deep and complete peace. Ahhhh-mazing space, energy, people, and whole experience.

My husband and I have been attending the public gong events with Linda and Tom Bonde and have also gifted ourselves with a series of couple's sessions over the past few months. We have experienced positive results including improved mobility, less joint stress & pain, and wonderful, deep sleep. We both find these sessions extremely relaxing, and always drift easily away into a deep meditative state. Even hours, and sometimes days after a gong bath, we can still feel the vibrational patterns traveling through our bodies, thus allowing the healing effects to continue. There is nothing more primal than vibration and sound, and during these powerful gong sessions, be prepared to be transported within your being and open yourself to healing on a profound level. Thank you, Tom and Linda for offering this valuable gift of sound therapy!

Having just attended my first event featuring gongs and signing bowls, I was completely amazed of what I experienced. Thinking that I was to hear crashing and banging, but to my surprise, the unbelievable sounds that were emitted, started from a point that could not be determined from the dimly lit theatre. Gradually rising in volume and pitch that I would never imagine could come from a gong. I am looking forward to the next event. Just amazing!
