These testimonials pertain to the Sädé Journeys audios on this website and live events.
“I heard about Tracy’s work as a sound practitioner helping First Responders with sleep and managing their stress levels. She understands the importance of acknowledging and feeling held in our own trauma as First Responders because we can have very difficult calls that can affect us in various ways emotionally and physically.
I am a firefighter/EMT that works 48 hour shifts and most of the time runs on very little sleep while I am at work. I used to always struggle going to sleep after getting off a shift even though I was so exhausted. I also have ADHD and have a hard time sitting still and calming down even when I’m off work and well rested.
In my individual session I had with Tracy I appreciated her guiding me right from the start with some breath work, while shifting my mindset intentionally to a few personal things I wanted to focus on. I felt Tracy offered a safe space for me to fully let go.
I have enjoyed using specific Sädé Journey audios at home, like “Blissful Sleep” and “Balance of Care”, a guided meditation created specifically for First Responders. I listen to them when needing to find added peace and calm in my life. My sleep schedule has improved dramatically along with my mental and overall well being.
Thank you so much Tracy you are the best!!”

“Over many years, my main ‘sleep issue’ has been not being able to get to sleep soon after turning the light off. Often, I’d lay awake for hours and, of course, would be exceptionally tired during the day. I had tried many different sleep apps and audios, and a few of them were relatively effective, but would only work for a few days, or a week at most. Then, in January 2023, I tried Tracy Merriken’s ‘Blissful Sleep’ audio, and it worked the first night… and every night the first month, and except for only 4-5 nights, has quite literally worked every night for the past 10 months! [Most often I fall asleep long before the end.] I have no idea whether it’s her pleasing voice and guided imagery, or the sound bowls, or both… just doesn’t matter! With certainty, when the light goes off tonight, I’ll be clicking Blissful Sleep on!”

“I have a Sädé Journeys MP3 player pre-loaded with soundbaths and guided meditations recordings. Recently, I had to have oral surgery and I had anxiety about the process. I brought my MP3 player with me and I was able to escape to my happy place to get through the process as pleasantly as possible.
Also, I have always struggled with sleeping through the night. I love that it is a different device other than my phone as I need to have my phone “sleep” in the kitchen, otherwise I would work too late and too early. I have been listening to them every night and my quality and longevity of sleep has never been better. My husband has even commented on how peacefully I have been sleeping. I sometimes listen to them in the AM with my coffee as a beautiful way to wake up and set intentions for the day. It’s been a game changer. I also think this has really improved my subconscious mind and helps cultivate and manifest kind and happy thoughts of myself and others.”

“This session was so wonderful. Aside from the EES energies, the crystal bowl tones made me go into the deepest meditation I’ve ever had. The folks at Energy Wave are so warm and welcoming. Thank you so much.”

“I have been bringing you to bed with me every night and haven’t slept this great in a while with no medication. You’re always so grounding. Your voice is soooo calming! I can’t tell you how much I appreciate you sharing that with me. It’s been probably 8 yrs since I slept without medication so that’s really huge for me!!!!! 😘❤️😴💤”

“Once I placed the headphones on my head I was transported into relaxation and repose. I felt like Tracy was playing her Crystal Alchemy bowls in the room. The sound quality matched her life playing which I have been able to enjoy.
Listening to the sound journey in one of the overnight sessions at the Energy Wave Center took me deep into myself to completely let go of thinking and to being present for noticing how the sound affected me in a deep way and allowed me to drift into a restful sleep.
Thank you, for making this available to us!”

“Sade Journeys recordings are incredible. I feel like I am having a live session. I get so much every time I listen to one of the recordings whether it is healing and reducing the aches and pains, getting a good night’s rest , or overall well-being and clarity, they are truly amazing.”
A.R. Santa Rosa, CA
“As soon as I saw the email about Sade Journeys, I knew it was going to be fantastic. I have known Tracy and have been a client for years. Her sound bowl therapy has been a staple to my self-help. This audio is now literally a cherry on the sundae. Truly a grounding experience. At times I am so caught up in the world and it twirls me so much I feel like I can’t “ground” myself. Listening to these at rest time and anytime are extremely helpful to participation in more mindfulness practices. Her voice, the choices in cadence are so subtle but also they guide and inspire awakening inside.”

“My singing bowl session with Tracy was such a relaxing and restorative experience. Tracy is a talented healer who helps bring your body’s energy into balance by playing soothing tones. She intuitively selects the bowls with specific vibrations which help to move stuck energy. The session felt like a deep meditation and spa treatment wrapped into one. My body and nervous system, along with my mind and thoughts were calmed and soothed – a transformative experience”.

“My husband and I had a profound sense of healing and communion during and after the soundbath led by Tracy. In sort of a ‘synchronization’ of our individual energetic fields, we both felt energy flowing through our bodies and between our bodies; both of us experienced micro-adjustments in our backs and hips through gentle rocking.
Post-sound bath, we were in absolute awe when we realized we’d chosen the exact same spot on the planet during the guided visualization and meditation portion of the sound healing. Both of us had our beloved animals with us, as well. Not only were we in each other’s auras on the physical plane, laying side by side, but in the imaginal realm as well.
I highly recommend this experience for couples, or anyone seeking to cleanse/clear, and/or upgrade to higher energetic and light frequencies. It’s a powerful and beautiful way to relax, receive healing, and find more harmony and connection through sonic resonance.”
C.F.D Rohnert Park, CA
“Tracy welcomes you with a variety of sweet smelling essential oil’s to choose from to start the session. I received a soft pillow and warm blanket and it became really easy to relax and float away. The sound and melody of the crystal singing bowls resonates with you on many levels! Tracy is an outstanding host and guide for these sessions and you’ll have a truly memorable experience.”
J.S. Santa Ross, CA
“The sound baths have been life changing for me. Tracy has a way of connecting with her clientele and knows intuitively exactly what a person needs. The sound baths are relaxing and have helped me release so much past hurts and pain.I feel like I have a better connection with my inner self and a better understanding of all my ancestors that came before me. I find the sound baths very freeing and grounding. It is an incredible journey to experience.”

“I had never experienced sound bowls until I did on a beautiful Sonoma County fall morning outside, overlooking Bennett Valley. The mats, blankets, pillows, and special touches were waiting for us, and various beautiful bowls were set out as we walked out. A feeling of happiness and peace was present immediately. I describe the session as a massage for my brain and soul. The frequencies were felt throughout my brain in different ways and took me to a place where I felt inner healing and hope, harmony and happiness. Tracy knew just what to say and do, and before I knew it the hour-long session was over. We took our time sitting up and then shared what we wished about what the sound bowls did for us. I left the session feeling hopeful and grateful. I have been back three times and can’t wait to go again. I recommend this for anyone needing a serious “brain massage” in my own words! You won’t soon forget how you felt during the sound bath.”
L.M. Windsor, CA
“After several live soundbaths with Tracy I feel that each one was a plus and improved some aspect of my health—physical, emotional or spiritual. I’m glad I found her at this point in life, age 88. After listening to her audios, I find them soothing and centering. A nurturing break in the day.”

“When I first met Tracy Merriken she was a visitor at our Energy Wave Center in Sebastopol California. There are people we meet in this world that are memorable for a variety of reasons and I prefer to be surrounded by ones whose memories I cherish. From the moment I met Tracy it was apparent she had a unique presence that is very articulate, caring and creative. We quickly recruited her to be one of our hosts whose responsibility includes the greeting of our guests and support them in their healing process. We got to experience her amazing abilities with crystal bowls and other sacred instruments and she had several stand-alone sound healing events that have been a great success. Everyone who participated shared how her voice and sounds put them into a deep place of rest and feeling safe.
Over the last several months we learned about her Sade Journeys which are recordings of her sound presentations recorded on MP3 players. As a test we kept several sets in our center for our guests to try. The feedback we received was beyond our expectations as almost everyone reported the sounds put them into an even deeper state of bliss. During this time as I would talk to Tracy about suggestions and she was incredibly professional in taking the time to understand and make modification accordingly.
This week we set up a full display of the Sade Journeys including instructions for all of the guests to now have access to them. Our center uses a specially designed Scalar Wave plus generator that assists with our self healing processes and Tracy’s system compliments it beautifully.
Tracy’s sound events are gaining in popularity and we are looking forward to even more collaboration with her in the year to come.”

“I have had the opportunity to receive and experience Tracy’s healing heart and skill with the alchemy crystal sound bowls. They have helped me stay present through some recent, concentrated and trying times of personal health and family deaths.”
