Led by licensed creative arts therapist and sound therapist, Katie Down, and sound practitioner / yoga instructor, Jessica Caplan, this 18-hour training takes place over the course of 6 weeks on consecutive Sundays, giving participants a thorough introduction to the therapeutic and shamanic use of sound. Weaving together theory with hands-on experiential learning, this course will open students to an exploration of their own voice and instrument of choice for healing and transformation.
Students will gain tools and inspiration to create their own personal sound practice with ethics guidelines for using sound in a variety of healing modalities. We will explore the history, science and cultural relevance of sound in healing traditions and expand our capacity for deep listening in meditation and clinical applications. Students will also have the opportunity to use traditional sound healing instruments such as Himalayan singing bowls, Biosonic tuning forks, shruti boxes, drums, rattles, gongs, as well instruments less attributed to sound healing.
Maha Rose Sound School is open to anyone interested in expanding their connection and understanding of sound as a tool for healing - not only for clients, but for creating our own personal sound practice as teachers, bodyworkers, yoga instructors, musicians, therapists, and anyone curious about the power of sound and deep listening in our daily lives.
No musical proficiency required.
There will also be an optional weekend retreat at the end of the training offered in the Spring at Maha Rose North for those looking to further deepen their sound practice.
