The enormous popularity of working with Sound has taken the term ‘sound healing’ mainstream, and a day does not go by where people are not talking about sound immersions, gong baths, kirtans, and a host of sound healing events promoted on social media. With this popularity comes interest, and with interest comes the responsibility of gaining accurate and useful information in becoming proficient in the use of sound tools, developing an effective skilll-set, and knowing how to assess and demonstrate proficiency. Presented by Mitch Nur, PhD, North America’s longest tenured Sound Therapist and teacher,

This program will teach tenets of working with Sound in a therapeutic approach through the use of the Bonpo Shang (last offered 4 years ago), Shamanic Drumming, Rattles, Peruvian Shamanic Whistling Vessels, Aztec shaman whistles and Death Whistle, Otag Water Vessel, and more. This instrument based approach, goes far beyond just an introduction, but offers insights from the traditional uses culled from long years of Field Research and experience with working...

HT NEW 420wSC.jpg

Harmonic Therapy is a non invasive, translational based treatment, where the direct, live, presentation of indigenous sound, rhythm, and melody is used within a therapeutic relationship to address physical, emotional, cognitive, and societal needs of individuals. Employing the over and undertones of sound through the use of transcultural instruments, they allow the listener an enhanced firsthand experience, which can produce extraordinary states of consciousness; and can initiate the Relaxation Response. Sessions can also lead to a higher sense of self, and create an entry point for self discovery.

Session Times: 11am, 2pm, 3:30pm, 5pm, 7:30pm

In this installment of the program we move deeper into the authentic uses of these instruments from the lands of their origin. We will further explore playing techniques, creating harmonic sets, the science behind the sound and the silence, working with one bowl, and more. Included in this workshop is a discussion on why they work with some people, and others they do not; and how to overcome this resistance. * Many programs on this subject 'assume' they work with everyone, but after over 4 decades, our research shows that there is an ever growing percentage of people who do not react positively to their sounds. Why is that? Learn how to overcome this resistance and restore balance. This program is dedicated to making you a very outstanding practitioner, and sharpening your skill set, as well as providing valuable information. Mitch will demonstrate various therapy techniques he's used over the years. Studying these techniques, gives the student a good base or foundation for their own practice.

➤ This program will run 9am to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday. Program cost is $108,...

Sonic Theology NEW SC.jpeg

Sonic Theology is the metaphysics of sound, and features an examination of Western, Mid Eastern, and Far Eastern theoretical approaches to Sound Therapy. A 2500 year analysis of the footprints of Sound Therapy, and beyond. One of the power-points features over 60 frames of information alone; and there are 5 power-points. We even have a movie night! Sonic Theology is everything missing from all sound healing programs presented in the West, and may very well be the most thorough historical investigation on the subject ever presented. Don't be fooled into thinking that the western model of Sound Therapy is important, because it is based on much older systems outside the Greek model. This program is limited to just 11 new students to insure an intimate learning environment. Discover what Pythagoras brought to Crotana from India, why is the House of Wisdom important, follow the thread from Gobustan to Anatolia, and discover ancient systems that are useful today. This program explains everything, to the point, that you will feel you have previously been taught nothing. Unless YOU...

Sonic Theology Science of Sound Master 420.jpg

Distinctions in understanding the Science of Sound Therapy, presented in a clear transmission. This program examines all the latest information drawn from cognitive neuroscience, brain studies, psychology, music therapy, acoustical physics, wave phenomena, behavioral neurology, harmonic theory, understanding musical terminology, and more. This is the how and why sound influences the mind-body complex. This program goes far beyond the current 'talking points' found in most sound healing studies; and stretches the boundaries on how to train the Sound Therapist of tomorrow.

We are not an instrument based program like so many training's that are offered worldwide; and we see the student as the instrument that requires tuning. Teaching sound therapy with instruments is simply musical instrument lessons disguised as theory, this approach leaves the student unprepared for dealing with many issues including trauma. Sound is the motivator behind the transformation of consciousness, and this is the basis of our training protocol.

Our program is considered a college level...
