We are so excited to share in these teachings in this amazing modality. Over the past few years we have now hosted these trainings nationally all over Canada and internationally in our spiritual home in Peru. And have experienced such amazing feedback over time. This is an amazing training for anyone with an open mind and open heart willing to explore this modality to be used in service.
We offer a very unique approach, as though we go over the science of sound, practice tools, and sound healing instruments. we also have a unique experience of sitting and training with one of the oldest tribes in the amazon who are masters of sound healing, woven into the tapestry of culture and deep connection to the earth.
Sound is considered to be one of the oldest modalities of healing. Taking a shamanic perspective that is rooted beyond culture, and dreaming in a new culture that sees our bodies as interconnected and woven with all of life. Courting the altered state through sound and music we allow ourselves to be open to understandings that reality is very much indeed a subjective experience. And in these altered states we may receive insight and understanding that can aid in healing, release, grow and open our hearts.
