Since 1990 Sunreed Instrument’s and it's sister company The Center of Light has run the School Of Sound Healing and Shamanic Studies providing comprehensive training in therapeutic sound healing, which includes in depth studies of the inter-relationship between sound, healing and consciousness. Earn a certificate in therapeutic sound healing with our four-level certificate course and gain a thorough foundation working with sound as a healing modality. We explore the very nature of our essence, and purpose here, as Wisdom teachings across the world have since their inception. Our workshops and individual therapies and studies are designed to draw us to our own innate wisdom and personal power, develop intuitive guidance and authenticity, deepening relationship with that we hold as sacred, awakening the core essence of our being, and enlivening us to understand and fulfill our personal destiny. Our programming is designed for both experienced professionals working in the therapeutic fields, as well as beginners, incorporating esoteric studies and meditation practices with the deeply moving and transformative power of Sacred Sound Transmissions, a highly evolved method of sacred sound work. The courses are led by Zacciah Blackburn, and Dorothy Stone, online and (when possible) in person, both in the United States and internationally.
Zacciah Blackburn, a gifted intuitive teacher and sound healer, trained in classical healing and shamanic traditions, began teaching the use of sound as a therapeutic modality in 1990 working under his businesses Sunreed Instruments and The Center Of Light. Through his career he has trained many sound healing professionals, and helped to develop the very meaning of therapeutic sound healing. His work focuses on therapeutic sound, spiritual development, and indigenous earth mysteries. Zacciah utilizes sound coupled with sacred intention as a therapeutic tool, for personal healing and transformation, in private therapies and workshop programs, providing illumined expertise in esoteric practices.
The School of Sound Healing and Shamanic Studies since it's inception has offered comprehensive programming to train sound healing professionals. Becoming a "sound healer" is not something someone can do in one four day class. Learning is an evolution of understanding that takes experience, and it can take years to embody teachings, and know the path of healing, in order to guide others. The School of Sound Healings offers a four-level certificate course, Foundations In Therapeutic Sound Healing. This course provides the foundations for a powerful sound healing practice designed for professionals working in therapeutic fields, active sound healing practitioners, and those looking to use sound healing for their own personal development. Both beginners and experienced practitioners alike report they are blown away by the depth of the teachings, and learn to see the art of sound healiing in new and expansive ways.
Zacciah as well offers transformative explorations of consciousness and earth mysteries, in individual stand-alone programs. These programs explore questions such as what is consciousness? What is the nature of creation and manifestation? Who are we, and what is our purpose here? He has led groups all over the world, visiting sacred sites working with the energy of the earth, helping to expand global consciousness towards greater depths of healing.
We are located in Chester, Vermont, amidst the rich tapestries and beauty of the Green Mountains. The Center is a non-residential study and therapeutic center. We are situated deep in nature, on a back road in Vermont, with pristine land which rests on a unique geological crystalline formation, with which we also work conscientiously in developing right relationship with the Living Earth. Our environment incorporates deciduous and evergreen forests and meadows, and deep, restful, and restorative quiet. We often incorporate work with the beauty and power of the Earth, and the elements of the Earth, in our programs. Utilizing the power of Sacred Sound as a vehicle for transformational exploration, we come into personal attunements, and initiations into the Great Mystery.
