Kimba Arem

Kimba Arem is an international recording artist and engineer, molecular biologist, classically trained musician and professional performer, subtle energy and music therapist, and a full time spiritual seeker since her transformational wake up call– a near death experience– in 1992.  She was shown that the only thing that makes life worth living is to follow the heart, an age-old precept that finally made sense to her in the most profound of ways.  Life simply couldn’t continue for her– at least not a long and happy one, as she was shown during that experience– unless she found her natural gifts, and expressed them in service to others.  Music as medicine, a natural gift and passion for her from a young age, turned out to be the way to put her heart’s joy into practice.

After her near-death experience in 1992 which drastically changed the direction of her life, she has striven to incorporate what she was shown into her healing work. Her overwhelming realization from that experience was that the direction of cutting edge healing modalities, as well as the nature of reality, incorporates the awareness that at the basis of everything is vibration.  Shortly following the experience, while attending graduate school studying Chinese Taoist Acupuncture and herbs, she was introduced to the ancient idea of using sound as medicine. She has now been practicing music therapy– including various other subtle energy modalities– for over 20 years.

In addition to her rigorous scientific background, acupuncture training, and music therapy career, she has actively studied and been involved in shamanic practices from around the world for the last 22 years. The awareness of tapping into healing and harmonizing energies beyond the five main senses is thus incorporated into her work.

Kimba has developed a private practice grown out of her extensive experience and training in sound therapy, multiple forms of energy medicine, herbology, alchemy, homeopathy, nutrition, and supplement therapy. She has incorporated these diverse elements into a multi-dimensional approach to healing. In a session, she uses a vibrasound table tuned to amplify and vibrate her live instrumentation within the frequency range of the human skeletal system. Her main instrument is a quartz crystal didjeridu which she designed, as well as multi-chambered Native American flutes, four-chambered Celtic flute, Tibetan and crystal bowls, tingshas, tuning forks, harp, Aboriginal bullroarer, native drums and unique percussion instruments, as well as various therapeutic mantras from ancient cultures around the world.

Kimba is dedicated to educating and assisting the planet in gentle awakening and transformation through sacred sound and vibratory technologies.

She feels that we each have unique talents and gifts that, when discovered and expressed, will bring us health and abundance.

She also realized that her gifts– like many of us– might not fit into clearly defined or traditional roles, so forging new pathways with courage is often required when following the heart.

She believes that each one of us that finds the spark within us and lights our inner flame emanates a frequency that ignites others to do the same, in their own unique way.  And a planet of people doing this can potentially create a new reality that transforms our world.

Kimba co-founded an integral health clinic in Colorado called Radiance Health, and sits on the board of directors. Her main offerings include composing and engineering music for CDs and film, book editing, group sound therapy journeys, teaching workshops, and private sound therapy sessions. Her sound therapy CDs currently in print include Waltz of the Moon, Vibrational Sound Healing, Gaearth Dreaming, Peace Journey, The Healing Didjeridu, Creation’s Tone, Psychedelic Prayers, The Way of Water, Color of Sound, Journey into Kosmos, and Self-Healing with Sound and Music with Kimba Arem and Dr. Andrew Weil. Her latest CD, Crossing the Great Waters, is intended to help with major transitions such as birthing and dying.
