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; to be perfumed with the cultural Wisdom and traditional uses.
