Feedback and testimonials:

I’ve been lucky to have several experiences related to many ancestral cultures while traveling. However, the quantum chair brought me to places where Peyote and Ayahuasca couldn’t. Everything is set so you don’t have to do anything and so the full internal experience remains accessible to anyone. I did not have any specific trauma to work on, but I have experienced what is love in its purest form and what makes us a whole. I do feel like there will be a before and after this experience in my life and I’m very grateful that there are people like you David who make this possible to experience for anyone.      Cl

‘I was blessed to receive several sound journeys during my three month YTT at Pyramid. They remain some of the most gentle, powerful and profound experiences of my life. Time and space dissolved and I experienced myself as colour and sound in what felt like a recapitulation experience of the most delicious flavour. Afterwards I felt profoundly grateful, embodied, joyous and attuned. When I hear some of the tracks to this day I’m immediately taken back to the experience. So very much looking forward to the next. Deep gratitude.’       D. L.

“The sound chair experience was cathartic. A true release of everything I didn’t know that was stored inside me.”   V
