Earn A Certificate Of Training with The School Of Sound Healing 4 Class Online Course The Foundations Of Sound Healing
The Center Of Light And Sunreed Instruments has offered The School of Sound Healing for over 20 years, training professionals in the art of therapeutic sound healing. The programs are led and taught by Zacciah Blackburn, a true grandfather of the discipline, who developed his sound healing practice in the 1970s and has instructed therapeutic practitioners since the 1990s. The programs are designed to give you in depth experience with sound healing instruments in the context of meditation and mental and emotional wellbeing, as well as explore in detail the history of sound healing and its modern day science. Students come away from these programs with a exploration of the relationship between sound and consciousness, and sound and spiritual evolution. Zacciah asks the big questions. What is sound? What is consciousness? What is healing? Who are we? What are we here for? Our current certificate of training program is The Foundations Of Sound Healing, a 4 class online course in Therapeutic Sound Healing
This is the first in a series of ongoing events. You can sign up for this program independently, but must attend this to attend additional future programs.
This is a high quality, in depth program offered for novice and experienced practitioner to gain wisdom, insight, and experience to create or further your practice as a sound healing therapist, whether for personal or professional use, as well as to integrate sound into an existing therapeutic modality.
Zacciah and Dorothy have a combined history of over 70 years in world music, sound healing, and holistic practices. You will receive in depth understanding and experience in the principles and use sound therapies, as well as use of primary sound healing instruments such as Pure Crystal Singing Bowls, Tibetan bowls and bells, chimes and gongs, Native American drums and rattles, tuning forks, and more, as time allows.
Study The Relationship Between Sound, Healing and Consciousness
From this program, you can expect to explore
How Are Instruments Used In Therapeutic Sound Healing?
This program offers a skilled approach to the nature of sound and healing designed to be of benefit to novice and practitioner. We approach a broad understanding of major sound healing modalities. With this foundation of understanding with the nature of sound, and the use of instruments, we begin to explore ever more deeply the use of voice, also, for personal and professional use, for practice in clearing, aligning, and energizing the human energy field, the nature of and use in invocation of allies and teachers in the subtle worlds of understanding, and much more. How is sound used as healing tool? Why is it so effective? We each have the creative capacity to utilize our voice in healing, every day. By setting proper awareness, and intention, we can, by speaking our truth, voicing our wounds, and touching our Divinity, and alliance with subtle realms of being, spark healing in ourselves and others.
This is the second in a series of ongoing classes, within our Foundations Of Sound Healing certificate course. You must have attended class 1 from the Foundations Of Sound Healing to attend this program.
Study The Practical Application Of Sound Healing Tools
This program builds off of the information introduced in the first program. Where the first program is an overview of the instruments, and the theory behind sound healing, in this second program we begin to explore the practical application of instruments in meditative and therapeutic practices. We will go into further detail of practical application of sound in a therapeutic practice in the fourth class as well, Application Of Sound In Therapeutic Practice. Where our first program is our foundational training for sound healing, this program will push participants deeper into experiential practice with the tools to further guide participants in creating their own sound healing practice. We will extend our studies into more explicit principles, techniques, and experiential practices of how to use instruments, voice, awareness, intention and understanding dynamic principles of neurophysiology, consciousness, and the subtle energy system of the human body to facilitate subtle healing and wellness practices for therapeutic work, as well as integration into an existing professional therapeutic practice.
Most prior participants in this work find it extraordinarily rewarding, and more in depth than they imagined.
Sound can take us deep into a subtle healing experience, far beyond most of our awareness and expectations. Zacciah and Dorothy are master teachers in this work. We will be working with new science and contemporary understanding as well as ancient wisdom and awareness practices in this course.
This is the third in a series of ongoing classes, within our Foundations Of Sound Healing certificate course. You must have attended class 1 and class 2 from the Foundations Of Sound Healing to attend this program.
Explore Sacred Space
How do we use sacred space in our personal & professional lives? Whom & what do we call upon to create sacred space, and why? Does the holistic practitioner & workshop facilitator have an inextricable responsibility to insure sacred space is utilized and maintained when ope0g clients to sacred mystery, or to greater personal awareness? What are the boundaries and limitations of our understanding as to the power of positive and negative forces in our life and workplace? Many shamanic cultures focus on the need to dispel or protect from the dark energies. What other methods of understanding may be even more potent at insuring the integrity and wellness of our space, our lives, and practice? We will explore these and other questions, engage in understanding professional ethics and care, and learn to couple intention with a variety of vibrational techniques for creating sacred space in our personal and professional place. When time and weather permit, we often work with creating outdoor ceremonial space, utilizing traditional indigenous wisdom teachings.
Learn The Power Of Your Voice As A Vehicle For Sacred Sound
When we attune to our own sacred nature, and voice this in resonance with clarity and trust, we come into contact with our very essence. Zacciah uses sound coupled with sacred intention to invoke the essence of higher being, as well as the voices of allies and teachers of the hidden worlds. This allows us each to enter more readily into a sacred space, more ready to explore the deeper nature of ourselves, and relationship to that which we personally hold as sacred, as well as the Greater Cosmos, and learn to better voice it. The invocation of sacred sound streams, which Zacciah calls Sacred Sound Transmissions, creates the groundwork which assists us in walking through a rich tapestry of unfolding experiential insights into our essence. We will explore together our inherent ability discern and channel these sacred sound streams through voice and intention. We will be given specific methodology to connect with the allies, guides and teachers, the ancestral and holy beings of the subtle realms of consciousness, the 'other worlds,' and learn to attune to, embrace, embody, and emanate their voices. Deep initiations may occur when we create authentic relationship with these holy ones, and utilize those relationships in integrated practices with Sacred Sound. It is important to realize, in this quality of practice, we enter into worlds beyond our common knowing and imagination, we enter the realms beyond cognition, so they are not definable by common language. We are in the imaginal realms of what some call, the Lands of Pure Light and Sound, where the Holy Beings dwell. Most participants in these practices find the work life altering, deeply transforming. We invite you to join us.
This is the fourth in a series of ongoing classes, within our Foundations Of Sound Healing certificate course. You must have attended class 1, 2 and 3 from the Foundations Of Sound Healing to attend this program.
Apply Sacred Sound To Your Therapeutic Practice
This last class is mainly for deepening our wisdom and understanding of the tools we have gathered over the course of this four class training. It is an in depth training for comprehensive practical skill development. We will explore more deeply, our understanding and application of sound healing skills, with the use of our voice, and instruments, awareness and intention, in practical application for therapeutic use. We will bridge more deeply into how to work with others in a client based practice, or integrate our new skills into our existing practice. There is much time for question and answer for direct application to each students unique and specific needs, as well as intensive time for further skill development.
Understand The Neurophysiology Of Sound
Sound is a primordial force which affects us on many levels. This program will as well explore the fundamental neurophysiology of the body, and the neuroacoustical properties of sound: how sound effects healing, change, growth, via the natural forces at play within our human bodies, as well as other aspects of the science of sound. We will carry forward our understanding of the use of instruments and voice, focusing on a scientific foundation, such as sound to enhance homeostasis, for deep relaxation and restoration, while utilizing intuitive awareness, in practices, moving more and more into hands on work with others as the trainings progress.
Explore The Attunement Of The Chakras
Last, there will be study of the nature and development of the chakras and their relationship within the subtle bodies & the human psyche; with attunement exercises via alchemical practices, esoteric exercises, toning, chant, mantra, and sacred sound transmissions, as well as working with instruments to balance and enliven these seats of consciousness. We will offer cognitive information on the nature of the Chakras, and skill development utilizing sound to balance and energize the chakras in therapeutic settings.
