Deeper Opportunities In Healing and Learning in Shamanic Sound

Shamanic Sound Healing: A Five-Month Course at Hidden Lake

This course will be held once a month for 5 months at Hidden Lake in the shakti-charged Sound Studio! We build community, learning, and healing as we delve into making spirit-guided sound with our voices in a beautiful lakeside environment. We then add other instruments to our knowledge and awareness of healing sound. Initiations, informative and diagnostic journeys, singing, song doctoring and other shamanic sound healing exercises expand our luminous beings, our confidence and understanding, our skills as practitioners and soul-nourished human beings. The spirits of the lake, the standing and singing ones all participate in this tincture of profound transformation and manifestation. Bring your desires and yearning to the circle, and to fruition with love, intention, listening, sound and partnership with the Divine.

You will walk away from this course feeling nourished, heard, and more illuminated, ready to shine your light more brilliantly and with more vocal volume out into the world.

This course is part of the LightSong School of Shamanic Studies curriculum. Journeying skills are recommended.

Advanced Sound Healing

Advanced Shamanic Sound Healing: Fall 4-Month Series

Sundays 10 am-5 pm at Hidden Lake  

Sept. 29, Oct. 27, Nov. 17, Dec. 15

Cost: $395 

This course is a healing & learning adventure for those seeking advanced techniques in shamanism & sound healing. Deep experimentation and discussion are key components of this intimate course of inquiry. We allow ourselves the time and space to really work with a technique, then discuss, critique, refine. We hypothesize about how sound, spirit, and the universe works!  It is a study group and support circle wrapped in a refined, loving, fun shamanic sound curriculum.

Together, we will cover how to use spirit-guided sound more potently in:

energetic removal techniques—extract, remove, or transmute what blocks or impedes health, well-being and manifestation at physical, emotional, mental, spiritual levels;

Filling techniques—what to call in, and how to incorporate and activate high frequency qualities, aspects, energies, resources, support features to promote health, well-being and manifestation.

We specifically focus on refined learnings and teachings that explore how to use’  “energy field theory” in the creative application of sound, for doctoring the body, mind, soul.

Incorporating more Nature beings and cycles of nature into our healing practices will also be explored.

Dates: Sept. 29, Oct. 27, Nov. 17, Dec. 15

Cost: $395/250 if you have attended the 5-month Advanced course before.

Payment: Please register online by Sept. 1 and make a deposit or full payment by the first day of class (check or paypal); If a deposit is made, one subsequent  payment can be made by the 3rd class.

Advanced Shamanic Sound Healing Intensive weekend Nov. 2-3

This course is for people who have taken Shamanic Sound Healing with me, either the 10-week or Intensive, or have the equivalent types of training and experience.

Advanced techniques and initiations interweave during this healing and learning experience.

We will be focused more deeply on working with clients and our own personal healing that will most facilitate potent client work. We will also be working on group work, facilitating group energy, reading “the field” for greater power and safety.

This weekend includes explorations of diagnosis, co-listening (listening to the client and the spirits simultaneously), channeling sound, effective approaches to invocation and prayers, the development of unique, personal treatment templates,  building rapport and creating a supercharged, safe container for healing.
