Ancient Sounds for a New Age is an introduction to and overview of sound healing with Himalayan instruments. It offers a clear idea of what is needed to learn and practice for anyone who decides to enter the field, and serves as an instructional tool to that end. Di ne has combined techniques from other fields that have proven very effective for her clients and describe these in the book. As an extra bonus, exclusive access to a digital one-hour instructional video is included to demonstrate Di ne's methods as a practitioner.

The book is organized in five parts. The first, Part I: Fundamentals of Sound Healing, offers an orientation to the work.

Part II: The Sacred Sound Family, teaches about the sound healing instruments--the tingshas, the ganta and dorje, and the Himalayan bowls--and the author takes you through some basic configurations for working with multiple instruments.

Part III: Sound Healing and the Chakras, offers a breakdown of techniques and principles for working with the body's main energy centers, the chakras.

Part IV: Working with Challenging Emotions, offers brief orientations to working with anxiety and depression, dedicating one chapter to each.

The last main section of the book, Part V: Enhancing Your Practice, concerns ways to include other modalities in a sound healing session, and the author shares some that have worked well in her own practice. Diane explores colors and toning, power language, and visualization, reminding the reader, "In learning to practice sound healing, we are aspiring to become more than technicians who can play the instruments--we are developing into healers."

Additionally, several Appendices include: thumbnail profiles of some sound healing pioneers, an interesting case study, some client testimonials, and further resources, including information about Diane's school and some of the classes and products offered.

"Di ne Mandle is the preeminent voice in the field of Tibetan bowl sound healing. Her book, Ancient Sounds for the New Age, offers a platform of deep understanding on which a practical skill set can be easily built upon. This is what the emerging field of sound healing has been waiting for. There is no doubt that it will soon be recognized as the go-to resource for serious vibrational practitioners."--Richard Rudis (Karma Sonam Dorje)

"In Ancient Sounds for a New Age, Diane reveals how to use the Tibetan bowls, tingshas, ganta, and dorgje to transform problems into doorways of light. I've personally experienced her ability to awaken the music of the soul and open to the blessings of harmony, and now with this indispensable book, you can too."--Cyndi Dale, Intuitive, healer, and author of many bestselling books including The Subtle Body, The Intuition Guidebook, The Complete Book of Chakras, Energetic Boundaries
