Meditative Unison concerts on crystal instruments

In 1994, Gaudry and Pauline Normand discovered the pure tones and the energy-enhancing properties of pure quartz crystal vessels (singing bowls). In 1996 they recorded their first album, CrystalÉnergie. Pioneers in this field, they have  given over 1,200 meditative Unison concerts to date: in Canada, Europe, India, Egypt and the United States.

The Sunday concert

During the summer, in Bonsecours, Gaudry and Pauline Normand give regular presentations. These introductory Unison mini-concerts facilitate direct, personal experience of quartz crystal instruments as musical, vibratory, therapeutic and meditative tools.

This mini-concert begins with a brief presentation on the history and properties of these unusual instruments. Then we teach you the basic precepts of how to meditate on the cristaline sounds using the Unison meditation method, a simple technique which is easy to practice. During the concert, which lasts about 20 minutes, we play many  different crystal vessels, making them ‘sing.’ You will also hear the crystal didgeridoo, the Quartzophone® H1 (crystal harp) and the Quartzophone® L1 (crystal lyre). During the concert you can sit back and absorb the crystaline energy. The crystal instruments produce sounds that are absolutely unique. You can close your eyes and let the music flow gently over and through you. In this way you meditate and enjoy a peaceful feeling. (Admission 12 years and older.)

Unison concert: for a deeper experience

The Unison concert is a grand concert of crystal vessels, crystal didgeridoo and Quartzophone instruments. This concert begins with a brief presentation on the history and properties of these unusual instruments. Then we teach you the basic precepts of how to meditate on the cristaline sounds using the Unison method, a simple technique which is easy to practice. Gaudry and Pauline Normand play simultaneously for about 60 minutes on 108 crystal instruments and create a truly omnidirectional ‘sound bath.’ We invite you to come replenish yourself with positive energy, meditate and experience a profound inner state of well-being. (Admission 12 years and older.) To purchase tickets, visit the Hours page. Please note that there will not be any Unison concerts this summer.
