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...

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

Sounding Bowls, Gongs, with 'playtime' with Ocean Drum, Rainstick, Porotiti, Blugles, Windwands, 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 within the cultures the sound tools originate from. This hands on approach is necessary in developing confidence, and learning how the cultures worked with these sound tools in a traditional manner, rounds out an effective learning process that will propel you in grasping the subject material. High academic standards are critical, and being mentored by experienced sound workers is the best way to start training in a serious manner.

In many cases no sound therapy program being offered today, showcases these unique sound tools. Used for centuries by indigenous cultures, their re-awakening in modern times signals their usefulness for stress reduction, relaxation,...

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...

SB-SO Pages Master.jpg

Our conclusion to our studies is an examination on how to work with groups and one on one session work. In some cases people just want to work on themselves as a way of resolution or personal growth. People have a very personal relationship with these instruments in many cases, which is the reason they were originally drawn to them in the first place. This entry point brought the experience of enrichment, an unfolding of insights and awareness. How to share this with others, or to go deeper in oneself is the focus of this program. It also includes a review of our previous work, and offers reflection and encouragement. Mitch will be demonstrating how to use these instruments in one on one Sound Therapy

➤ This program will run from 7pm on Friday evening to 9pm, and 9am to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday. Program cost is $249, class size is limited to 20 students only.

➤ Prior attendance in one or more of the other modules of this program not necessary for admittance into this program.
