Suren Shrestha was born in Nepal, about forty-five miles southeast of Mount Everest. In the village where he grew up, people were healed by herbalists, monks, and medicine men using shaman's drums, gongs, and mantras. He learned how to practice ancient healing techniques using sound and vibration. Suren gives workshops and assists clients with healing bowl work all over the United States. He is raising funds through his teaching to build the Aama Orphanage School for children in his native village, and is donating all proceeds from the sale of his book to the project. He lives in Boulder with his wife and daughter.
