Max Raphael

Max’s work centers around healing practices from afar that help guide us home. These include: a sacred tea ceremony from Taiwan, a unique style of massage from India, and intuitive sound healing from Nepal. An audio engineer and educator in his former life, Max has been sharing his current work in Southeast Asia and, when at home, in Cincinnati and elsewhere in the United States.

In India, Max became certified in a unique style of massage called Ayurvedic Yoga Massage; in Nepal, he discovered the practice of Tibetan singing bowl sound healing—and found his own set of bowls, which he can’t travel without. 


Max has also lived in Taiwan as a resident student at a tea and Zen center, practicing the Way of Tea. He shares a sacred tea ceremony he learned there, offering participants a way to harmonize with themselves, others, and nature.
