Sara Auster

Sara Auster, is a world-renowned sound therapist, meditation teacher, and author of SOUND BATH: Meditate, Heal and Connect through Listening. Sara’s thoughtfully-crafted experiences allow sound to be used as a tool to invite meditative states, support self-inquiry, cultivate deep relaxation, and inspire meaningful transformation. She continues to innovate, build a global community, and expand the reach of sound baths and sound meditation through the development of the Auster Sound Method, an original methodology that explores how sound and listening transform space – both physically and psychologically – for the purpose of creating connection and healing.
 In addition to teaching her own international Auster Sound Method certification training, Sara has been invited as guest faculty at Kripalu, Omega Institute, the Sound and Music Institute at the Open Center and New York University.
Recognized as a top meditation expert by Oprah Magazine and The Essential Guide to Meditation, Sara has been featured in the NY Times, Billboard, TIME Magazine, Vogue, and was Named one of 50 Innovators Shaping the Future of Wellness by Sonima. She has collaborated on heart-centered partnerships with global organizations like Google, Microsoft, Audible, Apple, Sonos and Nike, and brought public group sound meditations to cultural institutions like the NY Philharmonic, Palais de Tokyo, Rubin Museum, and MoMA.
Most recently, Sara has partnered with the World Health Organization as faculty to create its first Public Health Leadership Course, pioneering ways to make mindfulness and holistic healing practices an integral part of the future of global health. Sara has also created FDA-approved sound baths and meditations that will be offered as a complementary treatment option for people living with migraine.
Sara’s vision is to continue holding space for people from all walks of life to slow down, connect to their senses, and become the architects of their own healing.
