Learn How Instruments Of All Kinds Can Be Use For 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.
The Center of Light and Sunreed Instruments offers in depth sound healers trainings, and classes which enable any individual to develop their highest potential skills in sound therapy, as a sound healing practitioner, for the use of sound healing in one's personal or private practice, as well as therapeutic clinical applications. Many participants begin here, to build their complete holistic practice from the foundation. We guide you through all steps necessary for a full practice. Many therapists in Psychology, Massage, Reiki, Yoga, Acupuncture, Reflexology, Ayurvedic, Nutritional Therapy, Movement, Breath, and a large variety of other Holistic Therapies, as well as Hospice, Nursing and Medical practitioners, are finding the benefits of Sound Therapies to heighten states of wellness and integration of their services for their clients. We have growing numbers of these professionals studying with us, to complement their current offerings. This full course offers a thorough foundation, and a sound healing certificate of completion.
The science behind the eons old practices of sound healing are rapidly becoming well documented as practical, easy and effective. Sound therapies are known to reduce stress and anxiety, increase homeostasis, create a more balanced immune system, enhance overall sense of well-being, and has been shown to be effective in the treatment of cancer & other disease by medical practitioners, as well as sound therapists. The effect of sound and awareness practices have been utilized by esoteric traditions worldwide to enhance states of well-being and the exploration of the subtle states of consciousness for eons. Science is rapidly confirming the benefit of the combination of intentional sound and guided imagery practices as ultimately beneficial to the process of healing.
The Foundation In Sound Healing course, over each of the 4 Levels, is designed to promote efficacy and understanding as a sound healing professional, with intuitive and cognitive insight, direct experiential practice, and education in the science and mysticism of the nature of sound as used both historically and in contemporary cultures world-wide. The program incorporates modern scientific studies in neuroacoustics, neurophysiology, the use of healing sound instruments, voice, sound technologies, Cymatics, and development of one's own understanding of the innate qualities of self. We are a strong proponent of the view that self-exploration and self-understanding promotes key awareness integral to the development of one's self as a healing practitioner. To understand the healing paradigm, one must explore the nature of consciousness itself, and sound healing modalities do as much as any holistic approach to reach this understanding, as we are vibrational beings. Sound healing as a healing modality, utilized with clear understanding, integrity, and intention, promotes wellness within oneself and others one is working with. The science is becoming inextricably clear on this.
We integrate keen understanding of the nature of consciousness and wellness, with the skilled articulation of cognitive use of sound instruments, to bring about wellness and change in one's whole being. We include training in the utilization of one's voice, Pure Quartz Crystal Singing Bowls, Tibetan Singing Bowls and Bells (Bell/Dorje, Tingsha, Shang, Cymbal), Drums, Rattles, Horns and Didgeridoos, Tuning Forks, Peruvian Whistles, and a myriad of other traditional and contemporary instruments used in sound therapies worldwide today. We incorporate an intuitive and shamanic understanding of the nature of consciousness and subtle worlds of consciousness. Our facilitator, with over 37 years of experience in this field, will guide us to explore these principals with sound therapies and awareness exercises, approach a deep understanding of, and balancing techniques for, the primary and subtle components of the human energy system, including the 7 main chakras, the nadis and meridians, the endocrine system, and our neurophysiology.
We explore the modern science validating ancient and modern practices with sound therapies as it relates to wellness and consciousness, including Cymatics & the work of Dr. Hans Jenny, the work of Dr. Masaru Emoto, (water crystals and intention), the Heart Math Institute (coherent emotion), Dr. Mitchell Gaynor, Tom Kenyon, and other leading pioneers in the fields of human consciousness development, neuroacoustics, and sound medicines, and holistic wellness.
We develop skills and strategies to work in group and individual therapeutic context. In the course of these programs, we build community with a knowing school of practitioners. For some, this is the most important ingredient in the trainings.
We work with principals of ceremonial healing with practices grounded in traditional schools of healing, from Tibetan Buddhism to Hinduism, to Native North, South, and Central American shamanic practices. We create group ceremonies to develop and utilize our skills and heart felt intentions to learn how to bring true healing to the planet and all sentient beings incorporating sound practices. Each year's program develops deeper understanding of these practices, and our advanced level students & graduates continue this work by bringing ceremonial healing programs, not only to individuals, but to communities of the region, and to Sacred Earth Sites, as well as wherever else invited.
The programs empower us to bring our own innate and intuitive wisdom and understanding of the world forward, to stand more fully in our inner knowing, and authority as a human, and spiritual, being. At the same time, we develop the technical skill, based in decades of practice by the facilitator, of knowing the nature and power of sound and intention, and how to utilize it in therapeutic practice with clients, to heighten states of wellness in our own personal life, and in developing clear working models for group work with sound.
Inevitably, our participants feel markedly more whole and complete after each session. Reports from participants are nearly universal, in gaining insight, wisdom, and experience, that is 'life transforming,' and, 'beyond my highest expectations.'
