Sound School Level 2 at Maha Rose North

Katie Down and I have been dreaming up this deep sound immersion for a few years now. Open to sound practitioners who have either completed our Sound School Level 1, or who have previous training in sound in the healing arts, it will be offered in retreat style to create a truly immersive experience. This in-depth training will expand practitioners’ connection to sound in therapeutic modalities, covering basic music theory, history, practicum training, ethics and best practices.

Among the topics explored will be intuitive voice work, mantra and the energetics of sound, aesthetics of sound baths, instrument techniques, Mindfulness, and Deep Listening. Several guest teachers (details to be announced very soon) will offer sessions on tuning forks, gong, and basic anatomy for sound practitioners.

Set in the beautiful Hudson Valley, there will also be time for participants to pause and tune into the frequency of nature, hike, swim in a nearby lake, and enjoy delicious vegetarian meals. There will be daily movement and meditation practice to open body and mind for learning, and evening sound experiences to enhance integration. Students will also have the opportunity to practice individual hands-on work, and receive feedback from the facilitators throughout the retreat. We hope you can join us for this transformative five days at Maha Rose North.
