Sound is the primal force, literally the seed of creation. When we learn to work with, explore, and harness the power of vibration, we empower ourselves with tools for our own wellbeing and for the good of others. We become ‘sound’ in mind and body, finely tuned instruments resonating in harmony with our environment and with all beings.
In this weekend workshop, we will deep dive into the power of sound as healing modality, weaving together theory and history with hands-on experiential learning. We will begin by activating our capacities for deep listening, cultivating a heightened awareness of our inner and outer sonic landscapes. The sacred art of listening opens a portal to our highest selves, and to our innate capacity for self- healing. We’ll connect with our first instrument, the voice, as a tool for transformation, manifestation and awakening our intuition, experience sound as energy, and learn how to play traditional sound healing instruments, such as Himalayan and crystal bowls, shruti box, tuning forks, and more. Among the topics explored will be resonance, cymatics, entrainment, the therapeutics of rhythm and drone, vocal toning, and the anatomy of a sound bath. Participants will leave the training with inspiration and tools to create their own personal sound practice, and where applicable, to use sound within their own healing work. Teachers, bodyworkers, yoga instructors, musicians, therapists, healers, and absolutely anyone curious about the power of sound and deep listening are welcome. No musical experience necessary.
The weekend will end with a sound experience by Sacred Sound Ritual - me, Eva Geisler and Sean Hoots - from 7-9pm. This is optional but highly recommended!
