Sonic Theology - Metaphysics - 2021
Early Summer • TBA
Sonic Theology is the metaphysics of sound, and features an examination of Western, Mid Eastern, and Far Eastern theoretical approaches to Sound Therapy. A 43,000 year analysis of the footprints of Sound Therapy, and beyond. One of the power-points features over 150 frames of information alone; and there are 5 power-points throughout the program. 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.
