COMPLETE: Shamanic Sound Healing:
Introductory Weekend (Sound Salon)
Saturday & Sunday 9:30 am- 5pm (with generous breaks!)
Cost – Attend Saturday ($90), or Saturday & Sunday ($175).
This lighthearted weekend offers a powerful & fun introduction to the magic of Shamanic Sound. It offers a great way to step into the power of spirit-guided sound for your own healing and exploration. We work with the equation (which I adapted from Tom Kenyon and Jonathan Goldman): Sound + Spirit + Intention + Listening + the Open Heart= Manifestation + Healing + Transformation. Your learning and healing intentions guide the arc of this weekend as we co-create our journey together. Expand, express, release, gain support through this magical medium. Break the Sound Barrier!
COMPLETE: Shamanic Sound Intensive (LS- 230A):
Gateway to Spirit-Guided Sound
Friday 6:30 pm -9:30 pm – Saturday and Sunday 9:30 am- 5pm (with generous breaks!)
Cost – $240
This very East-facing weekend is an opportunity to immerse yourself into the realms of spirit, sacred sound and song, for healing, learning, transforming. Fundamental principles of Shamanic Sound Healing make up the core focus in this course. The work we do together will serve as a great foundation for further advanced work with me.
This arc of experiences is specifically for those of you seeking to add sound to your everyday life, as well as your emerging shamanic or energy medicine practice. Ceremony on Friday night launches us into our Saturday and Sunday journey together into soul, vocal empowerment, vibrational shifting, personal work. Group, individual, dyads, and wandering processes form a potent mix of learning and healing adventures. Plenty of “offscreen” engagement integrates our work into our living and/or work space, building Shakti in both a personal yet communal way. The power of Zoom is particular poignant for this level of sound-making, as it allows very personal & private sound experimenting in the comfort of your own space–which is great if you start out a little shy about your voice.
This course is foundational and is (loosely) required for many of the following courses.
Advanced Topics In Shamanic Sound 5-Month Series
Friday Sessions begin March 5th 1-4:30 pm PST
Cost – Sliding scale $120-200
This very North-facing course is for people who have participated in at least one previous Gateway course, and who have already stepped into this magical realm of Spirit-guided Sound with me.
My heartfelt goal for this course is to provide a potent community circle of light-hearted people to engage in this sacred work, in whatever form it takes when we all come together, call our allies in and YEARN with our hearts together. We continue our personal healing work, and investigate, explore how to apply it to our service with others.
For me, this advanced work with you allows us to delve into:
…Inquiry into Great Mystery and Sound Cosmological Ecology
…Exploring into new territory with advanced skills to push the envelopes of knowledge, healing, the cosmos.
…Going deeper into processes, ceremony, techniques and inquiry and adventure into new realms and techniques to invent.
Because we have been in sound class together before, all of us share a common language, overlapping frameworks of knowledge and vibration. We can be pioneers at the edge of shamanism, science, sound healing, performing research, engaging in hypothesis-testing, feeling into what is the TRUTH..
We build heart. We build Voice. We build Soul.
We meet once a month on Friday afternoons 1-4:30 pm.
Friday: REGISTER HERE
Gateway To Shamanic Sound Healing
March 3-May 5
Course format – 10 three-hour sessions
Wednesday Evenings – 6pm – 9pm PST
Cost – $280
We walk the Shamanic Sound Medicine Wheel* during this very lovely supportive connecting series. We form lasting relationships through the weeks, sharing our trajectory of discovery and expansion, healing and learning together in a pod. We have an extended weekly study / inquiry time together journeying into the realms of spirit, and co-creating sacred sound and song. Fundamental principles of Shamanic Sound Healing make up the core focus in this course.
This series of experiences is specifically for those of you seeking to add sound to your everyday life, as well as your emerging shamanic or energy medicine practice. Group, individual, dyads, and wandering processes form a potent mix of learning and healing adventures. The power of Zoom is particular poignant for this level of sound-making, as it allows very personal & private sound experimenting in the comfort of your own space–which is great. The work we do together will serve as a great foundation for further advanced work with me. Many of the topics in the weekend intensives and modules may be covered in this class as we walk around this wheel together.
The Creative Voice 1 & 2
Saturday & Sunday 9:30 am -4:30 pm (with generous breaks!)
Cost: Saturday ($90) / Saturday & Sunday ($175).
Our voice is a magnificent creative instrument. Great power—potential and actual—can be harnessed and activated through refinement and empowerment of our voices. How connected and empowered do you feel in using it to its fullest? This is an important contemplation.
In this workshop we will expand our capacity to use our voices:
***for expressing our needs, thoughts, desires,
**for cultivating relationships,
**for requesting, guiding, directing, wooing,
**for evoking feelings, sparking thoughts, inspiring action,
**for creating, weaving an environment of emotion and contemplation in our inner and outer worlds,
**for setting into motion our goals, objectives, intentions, visions, dreams.
At a deeper level, we will go on an adventure in BEING (IN) OUR SONG. Traditional peoples knew that we are singing ourselves, everything into being, constantly. So we tune up our most personal creative instrument—our voices. We connect our voices to the power and wisdom of our yearning hearts and illuminated souls, becoming a conduit for the Divine Realms for learning, healing, and manifestation on Earth. This workshop invites a broad spectrum of people to participate; the level of shamanic practices will be dialed up or down depending on who is in the circle.
The Creative Voice 1: We embark on a thoughtful, spirit-filled and safe exploration and healing around our relationships with our voices. We identify sources of strength and support for our voice and self expression, as well as identify and clear obstacles in the way of full expression. We use family and soul constellation work, shamanic journeying, and creative visualization and vocalization to manifest our shifts.
The Creative Voice 2– Our capacities to listen, receive information, and channel power and wisdom to Earth through sound and song, expand. Exciting! We vibrate at a new level! Singing journeys, Catching songs, Song doctoring. This is you finding your shamanic voice at a deeper level, perhaps with a more focused engagement. These skills can be used in our every day personal as well as professional life. If more We delve into extraction, filling, adjusting our thoughts, beliefs, energies in the world. Dissolution, reformation through word and sound. Deeply personal and freeing experiences that use shamanism as a framework. If you are an advanced (returning) student you will deepen your skills and provide insight and mentoring for other course members. Separate breakout rooms provide tailored learning and healing experiences for all.
Shamanic Sound Intensive:
Vibrational Manifestation and Sacred Sound
Friday 6:30 pm-9:30 pm Saturday & Sunday 9:30 am – 4:30 pm (with generous breaks!)
Cost – $240
During this West-facing weekend, we are deeply remembering that everything is singing itself into being. Exploring the shamanics and physics of manifestation, we have practical experiences of learning and healing. In this fascinating inquiry into this process of bringing things into being, we get to experiment how to engage with sound, spirit, intention, awareness, soul. Matrices of energy and matter are revealed to us in a multiverse of ways and layers, through all of our senses. In our crucible of creation, we partner with allies from the Divine, who vibrate through us as spirit-guided intentional sound. Through sound, spirit, awareness, the open heart, listening, we invite graceful & fruitful adjustments, enhancements, dismemberments, and reformulation, reconstructions, of our energy and material matrices. We listen and change the stories we are telling ourselves about ourselves and the world. Most importantly, we explore what it means and feels like to be a potent clear and discerning channel for the Divine—which contributes to life, spiritual nourishment, grace and hope on Earth.
This weekend’s evolution begins with ceremonial gathering and setting of personal and communal intentions together (one of the differences between this Intensive, and Module Weekends). Here, our Inner World Meets our Outward.
If you are an advanced (returning) student you will deepen your skills and provide insight and mentoring for other course members. Separate breakout rooms provide tailored learning and healing experiences for all.
Advanced Shamanic Sound Healing Intensive:
Expanding our cosmic reach
Friday 6:30 pm-9:30 pm Saturday & Sunday 9:30 am – 4:30 pm (with generous breaks!)
Cost – $240
Enjoy this opportunity to immerse yourself more deeply and powerfully into the realms of spirit, sacred sound and song, for healing, learning, transforming. We expand on gifts, lessons, knowingness gained from previous experiences with shamanic sound, and expand our reach into the inner and outer cosmos with potent vibrational medicine. We continue to break through aspects, energies, beliefs, thoughtforms, feelings, that keep us from our full expression and channel in frequencies that nourish, support, amplify, serve.
We continue our work with the equation (adapted from Tom Kenyon):
Sound + Spirit + Intention + Listening + the Open Heart= Manifestation + Healing + Transformation.
Your learning and healing intentions guide the trajectory of this weekend as we co-create our journey together. Expand, express, release, gain support through this magical medium. Mastery flows into to leadership, as insight into applications of our work to everyday life, and to earth leads to contribution and service.
Shamanic Sound Healing:
Applying Sound to Shamanic Practices and Lifestyles

You, the emerging healer, will engage in creative and empowering exercises that will amp up your capacity to enjoy a professional and/or personal daily practice that is rich with Spirit-guided sound. More investigations of being a “hollow bone”, conduit of Divine healing and wisdom. (Getting out of our own way included!).

Birding By Ear And Bird Language:
Slowing down and being Listen-a-tive!
Saturday & Sunday 9 am- 4:30 (with plenty of breaks and wanders)
Cost – Attend Saturday ($90), or Saturday & Sunday ($175)
The magic of birds is that they cause us to raise our eyes and hearts towards the sky and listen!!! We will spend the weekend enjoying, discovering, helping to remember different bird songs and sounds. So when we go out onto the landscapes, we might know a few of the birds and what they are saying. It is truly all about slowing down, and listening!
Enjoy significant offscreen wandering in nature near your Zoom location. We will explore our local habitat using “secret spot technology”—going out to one place over and over again to notice patterns, become familiar with the birds & other animals and plants there, slowing down to the speed of nature.
The language of birds have been utilized by lineages of Earth people to find food and predators, to understand dynamics of their landscape. We will explore how listening to the birds can help us gain an understanding of the ecology of where we live and travel to. Even more importantly, we can use bird language to diagnose the nuances of our consciousness, and to help us adjust our states of awareness and well-being. At a fundamental and practical level, you will learn how to identify different bird species by ear. We then go deeper into the 5 voices of the birds to understand how birds are reflecting the outer forest environment and our inner energetic environment. This is a surprisingly mystical undertaking.
You can directly apply these new learnings to connecting with the birds in your neighborhood.
Shamanic Sounds of Earth
Saturday & Sunday – 9:30 am – 5:00 pm
Cost – Attend Saturday ($90), or Saturday & Sunday ($160)
We listen, feel, vibrate with earth; she trains our focus and our senses, all of them. We begin to notice the subtle and out there sounds and songs of all of Nature, singing herself and all, into being. Conversations with trees, birds, flowers, insects, our most down-to-earth teachers. We open to Catching songs, writing poetry, drawing, painting, giving offerings and being in partnership with Earth. Being in that loving flow, partnership, alignment, attunement to Earth and her nature beings. The purest most heartfelt primitive singing, expression of the hollow bone. Mystics, we sing into each other. Rhythm, melody, harmony, raw earth vibes…faery songs…Be outside, journey, be in the divine exchange. Wonder what a wasp intends… rattle, love talk (ALA Tom Cowan), word doctor, enchant.
More Advanced Topics Dates will be announced by the end of the year. If you are an advanced student and want to engage with me in 2021, please contact me and we will shape 2021 expansion activities that best meet your needs.
