Who are we?
Soundala Therapy was founded in 2016 by Sound Healing Therapist and Somatic Experiencing Practitioner Rida Kıraşı.
In 2017, Music Composer and Music Therapist Can Dedeoglu joined to Soundala and started to work together in Soundala Therapy.
As Soundala, we form sound art projects, offer individual sound meditation and Somatic Experiencing sessions, organize sound baths and retreats, produce sound meditation albums and give workshops on mindfulness and sound meditation.
Soundala continues to evolve and grow into a tribe with the graduates of the 'Walking the Path of Awareness' training that Rida started in 2015. The training combines methods from meditation, sound, nervous system regulation and movement.
Our tribe combines what they learned from this program with their own authentic tools, and they hold space for those in need with different methods.
