One-Day Courses, Sound Circles, Open Community Gatherings For Healing and Exploration

Enjoy the nourishing healing of sound, spirit, and community in these gatherings and co-creating ceremonies. All are welcome! We come together in heart, in sound, in soul, invoking the Divine, and receiving guidance for how we can best share healing sounds together. We may use our voices, our drums, our rattles or explore with Tibetan and crystal bowls singing bowls.

All exploration seeks to bring greater well-being, greater awareness, a deep connection with the compassionate, divine help in our lives, and warm communion with others. No previous experience with sound or shamanism is needed.

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.
