Diáne Mandle Seeks to Heal Through Sacred Sound
For Diáne Mandle, certified sound healer, recording artist and author, sound therapy has the ability to heal and alter a person’s consciousness. “After sessions clients experience improved memory, clarity, vitality and the ability to take action. Many report out of body experiences, a deep sense of tranquility, sleep soundly and feel the effects of the treatment for several days,” she expressed.
Diáne’s story begins with her practice of polarity therapy. Shortly after immersing herself with this form of therapy, Diáne found a new source of energy and light in her life in the form of Tibetan and Bhutanese bowls, gongs and tingshas. After being introduced to Tibetan bowls at a Whole Health Expo she revealed, “I knew I found a modality that would transform my life.” Diáne became Sacred Sound Instructor Richard Rudis’ (Sonam Dorje) student for over two years, learning about energy alignment, balance, and healing methods through sound.
Since then, Diáne has been to Nepal to educate herself about the culture behind the instruments, and began conducting educational concerts nationally. In 2008 she opened a school, the School of Tibetan Bowl Healing in Encinitas, with her former mentor to teach classes combining Tibetan philosophy, energy work, and sound healing with sacred sound instruments.
Her path has also brought her career to the San Diego Cancer Center. “Healing Sound has been shown to be effective in the healing process for cancer patients by reducing stress and aiding in pain management,” she explained. She currently works at the Vista Detention Facility where she offers meditation and sound healing classes to war veterans. As for the future, “Over the next few years I plan on creating an online presence for my school, introducing my curriculum to other detention facilities and offering keynote presentations,” she stated.
Whether she is hosting a sacred sound session, working with war veterans, or traveling, Diáne’s diverse interests hold true to her life-long philosophy: show up, pay attention, speak your truth without shaming or blaming, and let go of outcome. She’s devoted to living a life of honesty, truth and wholesomeness.
