Have you ever discovered a place so beautiful, so spectacular, so peaceful, that you just had to share it with everyone? 

 

That's what happened to me as I began exploring the extraordinary healing potential of sound and vibration. When I opened The Vestibule, I had one goal—to guide people to that beautiful place—to the Still Sound Center within. This is the space is where stress and pain vanish, and health and harmony return.

 

I want to take YOU there—so you can experience life with more meaning, ease and joy, while becoming more productive at work, more loving at home, and more at home with yourself.

 

In harmony, Valerie Carpenter

What's a Vestibule?

In my study of Sound and

its profound effect on our wellbeing...

I became fascinated by the vestibular system of the ear with its mysterious labyrinths and canals, minute bones, and tireless muscles. This system is responsible for so many of the ways we relate to the world: our sense of balance, our spatial orientation, our ability to move in any direction, and even our capacity to stand upright.

 

If all this can be contained in such a tiny chamber of the inner ear, what might be possible in our own Sound Living Vestibule? It became a metaphor for the healing work—a passageway between the outer door and the inner sanctum, a gateway to another dimension...

Vestibule \ves-tə-byül\ noun 

Origin: L. vestibulum; antechamber, entrance court

  1. In architecture, a passage, hall or room between the outer door and the inner sanctum
     

  2. In anatomy, any of various bodily cavities serving as an entrance to another cavity or space: as the central cavity of the bony labyrinth of the inner ear or the membranous labyrinth it contains 
     

  3. Figuratively used to denote a place of entrance that offers access (as to something new) 
     

  4. In science fiction, a gateway to another dimension...

What people are saying

“Valerie's work is magical. When I first came to The Vestibule, I had a pervasive sense of free-floating anxiety and almost constant stress. Our work together produced immediate results. Not only did I feel my body quickly begin to relax, but I could feel waves of vibration penetrating deeply into my cells, realigning them and allowing me to release anxiety and tension at the molecular level. I left our sessions feeling calmer and more at ease. Each time we worked together, I could feel layer upon layer of long-standing patterns of holding melt away. I recommend Valerie to all my friends, whether they are stressed and anxious, or simply wanting to work at a very deep level.”
