Peter Blum

In 1988, Peter Blum met Native American mystic and visionary Joseph Rael (Beautiful Painted Arrow) and became his student. He slowly received Joseph’s teachings on the practice of working with the vowel sounds in a particular fashion. With Joseph’s blessing and encouragement, he has been incorporating them into his private sessions, and using them as an essential part of teaching sound healing. According to Joseph, these vibrations are encoded into our DNA, and also reflect certain “principal ideas” which can best be understood by the practice of the chanting of the vowel sounds.
“Voice is the first instrument, the one which every human learns to use to communicate. As students of the use of sound for healing, it is of primary importance that we study intentional use of vocal toning” — Peter Blum
