Sound Therapy Training Course

Swan Michelle (Michelle Baker)
Tuition: $325

The knower of the mystery of sound is the knower of the Universe.

Sacred sound, as a conscious, resonant application, is therapeutic and deeply healing for the body, the nervous system, and all aspects of your being. Sound Therapy, as a medicinal experience and ceremony, is an ancient, sacred art. Perhaps the most original of all arts. Sound is also a science, as sound measurably changes matter. If done with intention, and assigning spiritual meaning, it is a conscious practice and service, as it will release low grade energies still held in the body and elevate our vision with generous presence.

In this training, learn some of the most pure toned, high frequency instruments as tools for elevating consciousness for yourself or others in meditation, Sound Baths, Sound Journey’s and all forms of harmonious, high frequency holistic arts that advocate listening, stillness and the entrainment of high grade, clear communication and frequency.
