Sound Healing Practitioner Certification Course
Our courses cover the depths and details of the practices, but more than that they are designed to IMMERSE you in the practice so that you’re not just guiding from what you’ve learned, you’re guiding from your own TRANSFORMATION. Through experiential learning using tactile meditation, sound immersion classes, weekend immersive retreats, and online immersive practices we have many ways you can engage in the practices. Many of our programs guide you to the space where you learn to use the instruments, but not only how to play them, how to play them with INTENTION. The cornerstone of our teachings are based around the mantra: SOUND + INTENTION = HEALING
The courses are lead by leading practitioners and educators in the field of Sound Healing including myself, Becky Moriarty and the Founder/Director of Meditate School of Mindfulness and Master Meditation Teacher Bill Gisclair-Sullivan who wrote the book “The Healing Art of Sound”, which this program is based around.
Our programs provide you with the knowledge and the skills to build your own practice, lead group and private sessions and ultimately to become a Therapist in Sound Healing.
Upon completion you will receive a certifications in the programs you studied from Meditate: School of Mindfulness and from The Alliance of Sound Healers, Practitioners and Teachers. Graduates receive a 1 year free membership in ASHPAT (www.ashpat.org)
Practitioner Course Studies:
Module 1: Definitions of the Practice – In this module we define the practices and terms used. From Sound Immersion, Sound Bath, Sound Nidra, Sound Meditation, Sound Healing we discuss the variations of the practice. We define intention, entrainment, vibration, resonance, acoustics, cymatics, Solfeggio frequencies, Binaural beats, kosha, energy, light, music, crystal, vibroacoustics, Hypnotic Sound Healing, the Vedic and Tibetan systems, and so much more. Giving you a solid foundation from which to understand and share the practice.
Module 2: The Instruments – In this module we introduce you to the various instruments used in sound healing. Their uses, history, variations, etc. Crystal Singing Bowls, Himalayan/Tibetan Bowls, Gongs, Drums, Chimes/Bells, Didgeridoo. Shamanic Flute, Tingsha, Tuning Forks, and more.
Module 3: The Voice – In this module we discuss and practice using voice in healing. From spoken word, to chant and mantra, singing and more. We learn to train the voice’s register, timbre, prosody, pace, pitch, tone, volume and the sound of silence.
Module 4: The Energetic Body – In this session we learn how the instruments we use connect with the energy body. Using the instruments to balance and align the chakra as well as how we can use sound to guide us through the kosha, moving through the physical, energetic, emotional, wisdom, and bliss bodies.
Module 5: Holding Space and Setting Boundaries – In this module we go into detail about what it means to hold space for others, in a group and one on one sessions. We also talk about how important it is for us, as healers, to have boundaries with our clients and students.
Module 6: Clearing Space, Rituals and Set Up – In this module we run through many rituals and discuss how to clear, clean and create a sacred space for healing
Module 7: Yoga Nidra/Sound Nidra – Here you are introduced to the practice of Yoga Nidra and guided through a session, then taught how we can recreate the same session using sound healing instruments.
Module 8: Synchronicity and Serendipity – In this module we learn and discuss the theory of synchronicity, how nothing happens by chance when you are aligned with intention. By connecting to the deeper levels of ourselves, through meditation with sound we are able to connect to the core truth and recognize the flow of life is not accidental. It aligns with the teachings of manifestation.
Module 9: Sound for Stress Reduction – Awareness is key to our practice and being fully aware of how the stress response of our body works can help us see how our practice can help ease the stress and move our clients into a recovery space that changes the entire way our body heals. The practice of sound healing can’t happen until we realize it begins with the release of stress and tension. Our body’s innate ability to heal is awakened when the recovery response to stress is activated.
Module 10: The Business of Sound Healing and Sound Therapy: In this session we discuss everything from liability, to marketing, to various limitations and amazing opportunities to share these beautiful practices.
Module 11: Intention – We come back to the discussion of Intention and focus on our mantra – Sound + Intention = Healing. We discuss our intentions and how we set the tome for every session we hold, with intention.
