Deep vibrational healing. I go every time Matthew is in town.


“Words seem so deficient for explaining the depth of experience we all felt… I was being moved by sound, my whole body was light and vibrating.”

– Vancouver Yoga Review


Imagine floating in an ocean of cosmic sound… vibration so profound it seems to take on qualities of form, texture and color. It’s hard to believe these tones come from a human.


The harmonic overtones of his voice resonate the core of your being, creating a sonic environment that dissolves the boundaries of space/time and allows direct experience of the oneness of all things.




Recognized as an emerging leader in the world sound healing movement, Matthew Kocel is a throat singer, sound healer, multi-instrumentalist, composer and recording artist with over 3 decades experience as a performer and multi-disciplinary healing arts practitioner.


He is a committee member of the Global Wellness Institute Sound Healing Initiative, and in the last year alone has shared his vision inducing music in France, New York, the western United States and Canada.


With his throat singing, overtone chant and natural voice Matthew has tapped into a universal stream of music that feels deeply familiar yet new at the same time.


Accompanied by humble acoustic instruments and ancient technology, Matthew’s live performances have impacted people from all walks of life in North America, Europe, Central and South America.


Reactions to Matthew’s music have been well documented online with people consistently sharing similar stories of non-ordinary experiences during his events.


Prepare for transformation.

About Victoria Laughter Yoga Club

Victoria Laughter Yoga Club is affiliated with Dr. Madan Kataria's School of Laughter Yoga. We laugh: Just ‘cause: ☺It feels good ☺Fights cancer* ☺Conquers stress ☺Improves circulation ☺Smooths out wrinkles ☺Is efficient exercise** ☺Slows the aging process ☺Boosts immunity(fight colds) ☺Oxygen to brain=clear thinking * Dr. Otto Warburg, President, Institute of Cell Physiology, Nobel Prize Winner (twice) says: “Deep breathing techniques increase oxygen to the cells and are the most important factors in living a disease-free and energetic life. When cells get enough oxygen, cancer will not and cannot occur.” (My bolding) **Dr. W. Fry states that 10 minutes of hearty laughter is equal to 30 minutes or rowing or jogging.(Journal of General Psychology, 1938) Laughter Yoga goes beyond just laughter. Founder Dr. Madan Kataria has developed techniques to stimulate childlike playfulness, to adjust the aerobic and stretching component, and to promote emotional flow and release. Laughter Yoga can improve your physical health, release negative thoughts and emotions and get in touch with your spiritual nature. It helps us to develop an attitude of forgiveness, generosity, compassion and helpfulness while actively seeking the happiness of others. Combined, these principles can provide a powerful life-changing experience that we call the inner spirit of laughter. Laughter Yoga Clubs are non-political, non-religious, non-profit. There are a number of clubs in the Victoria area. Email for more info and current schedule:
