When studying Musical Qigong we learn that music enhances energy flow and opens the potential power of the mind.
Music is a language between humans and nature; connecting the mind, body and spirit to the Universe. It also guides the listener into an optimal state wherein the whole body is relaxed and the heart and mind are harmonically regulated; which improves the functioning of the immune system.
All of my flutes are handcrafted by using sculptor's gouges and a mallet and/or palm gouges.
I specialize in making flutes from branches and meditation flutes that are constructed to specific body measurents. This makes each flute uinique to the resonance of your physical body.
Each piece of wood has its own optimal tone which is what I use for the root tone of those not tuned at 440Hz and all flutes incorporate the intervals of a Minor Pentatonic scale.
To special order a flute, please contact me using the Contact Form. All special order flutes require a 50% non-refundable deposit before work is begun, with the remaining amount to be paid prior to delivery. Depending on how much inlay work is done, if any, a normal flute will take between 4-8 weeks from the time started.
