Immersive Sound Experiences
for Inner Voyagers
MetaMusic means beyond what is considered music, or beyond what so far we have consider music. In this context, music becomes experiential, functional, a metaphor of life; and it carries healing, inner guidance, and deep transformative properties.
In these MetaMusic Journeys, Laura plays acoustic instruments from around the globe and combines them with wisdom practices to facilitate wellbeing and self-exploration.
Her music speaks a universal language, telling stories without words. As a listener, you become the creator of your own experience, breaking the boundaries of your senses.
Contact Laura for online private or group sessions.
Stay tuned for online public sessions.

A Winter Solstice Sound Ceremony in Honor of our Times
December 21st, 12:21pm Pacific Time, via Zoom.
Free, Open to Everyone & Interactive
Join an open conversation about this Winter Solstice
followed by a sound ceremony.
Hosted by Laura Inserra & Nadine Kreisberger
As the year 2020 draws to a close, we gather on the Winter Solstice for a precious moment of reflecting, blessing, integrating, visioning, journeying...
We will explore ancient schools of wisdom — alchemy, shamanism, astrology — and what they can teach us for the times we are living. We will journey with sound and explore the energy of this Solstice, the synchronicities in the sky, the universal symbology of the arc of time we are part of, and the powerful opportunities awaiting our personal and collective evolution.
According to some traditions, on Winter Solstice the the veil between humans and spirits is thinnest. We will take this opportunity to honor those we have lost during the pandemic, as well as the forests, animals, and homes decimated by the devastating wildfires in the Pacific Northwest, to honor those who are fighting to end racial injustice and inequality in the world, as well as any kind of loss you might have encountered — the loss of a dear one, of a human connection, of a dream, of a relationship, of a life-style...
This Solstice will be all the more powerful as a very special conjunction will take place on that day in the sky, a rare astrological event which may signify new openings, new opportunities, deep transformation at both the personal and collective levels. This ceremony will therefore also be a chance to tune ourselves to the vision we want to manifest and set out energy to embrace the outcome.
