Gail Lynn is the inventor and creator of the Harmonic Egg®. As a 37-year-old woman, she was diagnosed with severe cardiovascular stress stemming from the pressure of a competitive career and more than one broken relationship. She had depleted physical, emotional, and psychological reserves. Searching for a natural therapy that might help her, she stumbled across light and sound therapy.
The healing she experienced from a single session of this therapy, while not immediate, seemed almost miraculous to her. She was intrigued, and she reserved a few more sessions.
Gail has a wide-ranging background in creative endeavors, as a business owner and in the field of engineering. She knew that the light and sound therapy she had experienced could be improved, and she was excited to realize that she possessed the exact gifts needed to do that.
In 2010 she opened her first light and sound therapy center in Denver, Colorado using the older technology she had first experienced. Over the next few years, she studied bio resonant frequencies, Nikola Tesla’s theories of 3,6, and 9, sacred geometry, heliotherapy, chromotherapy, and much more. She pondered how to create a chamber with the perfect combination of size ratios, materials, and shapes to enhance resonance. She enlisted the expertise of professional musicians to create some proprietary music specifically designed to utilize the acoustics of the egg shape to help the body heal itself. Gail also collaborates with professional light and sound engineers on the Harmonic Egg® team. In 2020 she was approved for a patent for her invention, the Harmonic Egg®, just 4 years after applying.
Now Gail has turned her attention to bringing the Harmonic Egg® to more communities throughout the US and the world. In addition to making the Harmonic Egg® available for sale to other holistic practitioners, she generously shares her knowledge. She is passionate about helping people transform their health and achieve mental and emotional well-being by energizing the healing power within them.
To learn more about Gail’s story and for additional details on the inner workings of the Harmonic Egg®, read Gail’s book “Unlocking the Ancient Secrets to Healing.”
Through Retreats, One-on-One Sessions and Spiritual Coaching, of Evolution of the Heart, Bill provides guidance for a thriving life. He believes that to fully thrive and live from your center, a healed and whole foundation is necessary. The modalities that flow are unique to each individual; providing specialized support for the healing needed to rebuild and strengthen the souls foundation and heart.
I know the importance of surrendering to the opening of my own heart and embracing the brightness of the light within. Through deep awareness and guidance, I support you in moving towards your opportunities for profound healing, so that you too may step into the freedom to be who you have come here to be. I use real-time healing and practical tools and practices to support you in building emotional muscle. Through the process, you will discover your own strength and resilience and the truth of who you really are. Patricia and I started Evolution of the Heart from the fundamental desire of people wanting to open their hearts and live a life of fulfillment and freedom.
It was through 30 years of seeking and experiencing many modalities of religion and spirituality, that I finally discovered my own true, divine path. I was born in London, England in 1947 and moved to the United States as a toddler. My childhood military family set the foundation from which I would grow. I became a certified Federal Aviation Agency Technician and later moved into the automotive industry. I owned and operated a successful business for 30 years before turning my attention fully towards supporting others on their paths to enlightenment. I now live in San Diego, California, and I am so grateful to share this life with my wife, Patricia, and our beautiful children and grandchildren.
Using both sensitivity and strength, I welcome you into self-acceptance and forgiveness, guiding you through pain, grief, fear and anger. I support you in building and strengthening your own foundation, providing tools and skills for emotional and spiritual growth. Our work together offers you the opportunity to transform into the person you are here to be. I also lead Man to Man Coaching, a coaching practice to support the everyday man to heal and awaken. “When you can move into acceptance of what life is right now, you are in the movement of what is truly inviting you to experience the depth of yourself.”
My own journey of awakening has led me to extensively explore both mentoring and healing, developing skills across several healing modalities and professional certifications. Devotion and commitment have blessed me with the opportunity to have been among many gifted teachers, always discovering even greater depths of my own heart.
