Meet Kyle Lam

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kyle Lam.

Hi Kyle, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
Hello there! Honored to be able to share my story with the community! My journey in sound healing began when I was a child, where I was trained in classical and chamber compositions. I played piano for eight years and performed in both symphony orchestra and marching band throughout junior high and high school. Understanding musical theory has been the driving force for creating the melodic meditative journey in my sound bath experiences. Combining elements of crescendos, diminuendos, and oscillations, my inspirations from past musical performances help me to create the healing and transformative journey in my events.

In 2015, I discovered the world of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan and fell in love with not only the practice of Kundalini Yoga but the experience of being immersed in the sounds of the gong. As my practice of Kundalini Yoga developed, so did my relationship with the gong. In my own sound baths, the recitation of the Adi Mantra preludes each sound bath to set the precedent of our journey. Recitation of various Sikh mantras are chanted throughout the sound journey to call upon our teachers, angels and guides to share their presence to help heal our participants.

As the years passed, I found myself being drawn to sound baths myself, with my first sound bath at the famous Integatron in Joshua Tree (shoutout to Lindsay Hong for taking me there). Following which, I’ve had the honor of attending multiple sound baths from various notable sound healers in the Los Angeles area. My own healing journey with sound lead me to purchase a basic set of crystal bowls to use in my own practice and in 2016, I held my first public sound bath in Santa Monica. At the time of my first sound bath, I was living in Whittier, CA and realized that within the East LA area, there were only a small number of practitioners providing alternative healing services for the local communities. It was there that I decided to begin hosting sound baths locally in Whittier, which later expanded in serving the Rowland Heights, La Habra, and Downey communities. My goal was to provide consistent low-cost sound baths for the community, helping to introduce the concepts of meditation, mindfulness, and awareness into the consciousness of all those who attend.

From there, I expanded to Orange County after moving there in 2017 and began hosting sound baths throughout the entire county. I’ve had the honor of partnering with various yoga studios, indoor venues, and outdoor spaces to host a variety of sound bath related events, from stand-alone sound baths, breathwork sound baths, reiki sound baths, outdoor sound baths, cannabis-friendly sound baths, women’s retreat sound baths, men’s circle sound baths, celebration of life sound baths, and much more including virtual sound baths throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. I’ve been blessed to serve the communities of Huntington Beach, Newport Beach, Costa Mesa, Irvine, La Habra, Fullerton, Tustin, Orange, Anaheim Hills, Mission Viejo, Rancho Santa Margarita, Capistrano Beach, Dana Point, and San Clemente. Our recent development of outdoor sound baths has become a production that includes a variety of offerings from tarot readings, jewelry, crystals, candles, CBD, aromatherapy, and other holistic products from our team of female-owned small business owners.

My love of alternative health services like sound healing contributes to my eventual goal of becoming a practicing medical physician. I am currently on route to begin medical school in the Fall of 2021 and it is my hope to utilize my experience in sound healing into my practice as a medical doctor.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
It’s had its ups and downs. The biggest initial struggle of was branding myself and my events while trying to reach out to the community through marketing and advertisement. As a former accountant, I knew the principles of marketing, but it was through the development of my own events that I found respect and compassion for those who work in marketing. On a personal level, I had plenty of my own emotional blockages that came up during the course of hosting sound baths. Anyone who works in this field understands that when you facilitate healing for others, you in turn receive healing of your own.

In the beginning, my ego did prevent me from collaborating with others in a graceful manner as I was so keen on creating an experience that I could call my own, but I rose above it and began harmoniously partnering with others in our events, realizing that there is no competition and collaborating with others simply integrated as part of the intention of serving the community.

When the pandemic first began here in the U.S., like many Americans, I was in a state of uncertainty but had a resilience for our country to come together to deal with this pandemic. My events came to a halt and I was unable to facilitate the healing experience that I was passionately devoted to. Instead, I began devoting time to provide support for my community, organizing and joining different online support groups with friends and clients, especially those I knew who were isolated on their own. My empathy for those that were affected grew with each story from these meetings and I shared tears with those who expressed their struggles. It was a beautiful reminder that we are never alone in our difficulties and that our perseverance defines who we are. In time, I realized that hosting my sound baths virtually was possible and through a successful Go Fund Me campaign that was fueled by my friends and clients, I procured recording equipment to begin facilitating them. I held these for free for eight weeks, with each one bringing in different participants from all over the country and even collaborated with the yoga studios I worked with to help raise support to keep their businesses alive. I’ve continued hosting these online sound baths to this day each month, where each session, donations are collected and then gifted to a local charity or non-profit organization in Orange County.

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
In terms of production, our sound bath experiences are set up to guide participants on a galactic journey through their internal cosmos. We create a safe container for people to relinquish the identities they attach themselves to and experience the whole being that they are. Our sound bath set up includes a collection of nine different planetary gongs, ten 432hz crystal quartz singing bowls, Tibetan singing bowls, rain sticks, ocean drums, and various other acoustic sound healing instruments. While our sound baths can lean on the more intensive side, the purpose of it is to allow you to explore all aspects of yourself, both the light and the dark. Our sound baths are known for the powerful transformations that our attendees go through both during and following the sound bath. Our drive and passion derives from our community, the individuals who dedicate themselves to inner work and those who prioritize their healing.

What separates our events from other sound baths is our own energy. A strong, balanced, and grounded masculine presence while creating an environment that is open to the general public, whether you have little to no knowledge of spirituality to advanced esoteric practitioners. Above all, our sound baths are rooted in the science of meditation, presenting the factual benefits of mindfulness and conscious awareness.

Let’s talk about our city – what do you love? What do you not love?
Diversity, Inclusion, CommUNITY, and Elegance.

What I believe needs improvement is having more compassion and resources for those who are suffering.
