Come along and enter the world of sacred sound: Sound that touches your soul! Based on ancient chants, it has the ability to calm the mind if listened to with intention. Kirtan experiences range from uplifting, refreshing, enlivening to calming, grounding and relaxing. A Kirtan event is not your typical concert either. You can think of it as a sing-along in which the Kirtan singer and the audience alternate in singing the mantras.

We repeat simple melodies in a lively call and response style supporting a divine connection with our heart and spirit. It is an easy way for even a new practitioner to experience very deep and blissful meditative states. The positive vibration in the music along with the group energy is catchy and will uplift even the quiet spectator.


Sunday 14th June' 2020

7:00pm - 8:30pm

Cost: Koha (Donation)

3-day intensive training

In this Level 1 Certification Training, you will learn the fundamental
principles of Sound-Based Therapies that can be implemented in your
current practice/teaching (bodywork, energy healing, alternative
medicine, yoga and meditation, group work, etc.). You can also use the
learned principles to start practising with the aim of building your own
Sound Healing practice over time.

The focus of Level 1 is on the effects of sound on the human body, mind
and energy system. A thorough, in-depth section covering the theoretical
principles will provide all the information you need to understand and
explain why and how sound is a powerful healing modality. We look at its
effects on the nervous system and the energetic structures at a cellular
level as well as the mechanics of sound and how it conveys structured

The practical part of the training is dedicated to learning how to use
sound in the context of individual sessions. These principles can also
be applied to group sessions. Specifically, you will learn how to use
tuning forks (one of the most accurate tools currently available) and
singing bowls. These are basic techniques, very easy to implement and
integrate into other practices.

Part of the training will be dedicated to a basic understanding of how
to use your own voice for your personal development. In fact, I believe
that in order to be an effective Sound Healer, one needs to have a deep,
intimate connection to the element of Sound itself. The voice is the
ultimate tool to achieve this.

In the intensive weekend you will learn:

- Theory of Sound Healing (Entrainment and Resonance; Sound Propagation;
Sound and the Nervous System and more...)
- Foundational vocal practices for Self Sound Massage
- Practice with instruments (Tuning Forks and Singing Bowls)

There will be additional home assignments in order to complete the

No previous experience is required. You will need a basic set of
instruments in order to complete the assignments. This includes tuning
forks and singing bowls. There may be instruments available for you to
practice but you will need your own later to complete the certificate.
