“The ability to observe without evaluating is the highest form of intelligence.” ― Jiddu Krishnamurti

“The Witness” refers to the part of your consciousness that can be a neutral observer of reality. The Witness understands that it does not have to identify with thoughts or emotions. When we activate this part of ourselves we become aware of a truer identity and open ourselves up to connecting more deeply with ourselves, others, our surroundings, and our infinite potential. By realizing that we don’t have to be constantly judging, and evaluating, we allow ourselves to experience and appreciate each moment more fully.

In this focused listening session, we will be using the power of Reiki, sound, breath, and our ability to focus our attention to access deep parts of our own consciousness and hidden layers of reality. Our goal will be to uncover truths buried deep inside all of us and to return the mind-body to its natural state of growth and healing by dissolving the boundaries we imagine to be real, revealing the connections between our outer and inner worlds, and ultimately becoming aware of awareness itself.

Create space, break the link between sensation and reaction, and become the neutral observer of your own thoughts and surroundings.


Christine Alfred
Christine is a Reiki Master of traditional Usui Reiki, a therapeutic sound facilitator, and an Herbal Apprentice at Flower Power. As an intuitive empath, she establishes connections with the body's innate wisdom to facilitate a natural state of growth and healing, and to better provide the support of Reiki and sound where it is most needed. Christine attributes her connection to the earth, and her dedication to personal and universal development to the teachings received from her grandmother, and the culture of Haiti, where she was born. She completed both her Reiki and Green Medicine training at the New York Open Center School for Holistic and Professional Learning. She formerly served as Director of events at The Alchemist’s Kitchen where she curated transformational and educational events for the community. 

Robert Picciotto
Robert is a sound artist, meditation facilitator, and independent researcher. As a third generation musician who has undergone diverse training in sound design and audio production, sound is deeply ingrained in him. His extensive experience with electronic music combined with his acoustic sound meditation practice gives him a unique and multifaceted perspective on the possibilities and applications of sound. While he values his training and background, he's committed to leaving space open to intuition, play and possibility, and learning from the unexpected.

Together they run Awarehouse, a project that creates experiences through carefully curated events that are intrinsically gratifying while promoting transpersonal growth and healing. Awarehouse draws on all systems of knowledge, from the ancient and occult to the futuristic and accessible, focusing on the power of sound, energy, plants, art, and community.
