Founder of Gentle Earth Sound Therapy and Holistic Wellness, Betty Gauthier (she/her) is a Licensed Sound Therapy Practitioner, RYT® 200 Yoga Instructor, Certified Vipassana Meditation, Breathwork, and Yoga Nidra Teacher, and Usui Reiki Master. The essence of Betty's work is about helping those she meets to establish and maintain a lasting connection in mind, body, and spirit. As a practitioner, she draws on mindfulness practices and implements her experience as a Trauma-Informed facilitator in all aspects of client care and well-being. Betty's work radiates from the heart and her sincerest desire is to offer support and inspiration to all who are looking for ways to restore balance and harmony in life. She comes from a place of non-judgment and unconditional love, ready to meet all beings where they are on their own journey while holding space for limitless possibilities.
Betty is a fully insured and registered practitioner, and in every aspect of her practice, she operates at the highest of standards in all facets of client care, strictly adhering to this Professional Code of Ethics. For a number of years, she facilitated monthly sound offerings, workshops, and classes at several Lansing and East Lansing studios, including here at LotusVoice, but she has since refocused her practice solely on serving private clients. Betty is a featured teacher on InsightTimer and deeply enjoys being able to support our global community through a variety of online stillness practices.
While community service resonates with her deeply, it is Betty's personal and spiritual practices that allow her to continue to show up for herself and others. Mindfulness has been an integral part of her life, exploring her own meditation practice rooted in Plum Village Buddhist traditions for over 20+ years. Sparked by Thich Nhat Hanh's The Heart of the Buddha's Teaching, in 2008, Betty decided to take the precepts and her refuge vow (a formal commitment to the Buddhist Path) in the Lieu Quan lineage. Her Dharma name is Collective Embrace of the Source. When not doing therapy work, you can find Betty hiking national parks with her best friend and husband of 35 years, cycling, trail running with her canine companion Edison, playing one of many instruments in her Michigan home, or nurturing her state of Being through the 8 Limbs of Yoga.
