The ancients understood that sound has the power to heal and transform. Today more and more people are
discovering that the use of sound is a joyful way to affect health, stress levels and mental attitudes. This
workshop provides an opportunity for participants to both learn about and experience the transformational
power of sound.
Demonstrations and discussion will help us to understand why sound has this power. We will learn to see
reality in a new way, understanding it in terms of energy and vibration. From this new perspective, many
things will start to make more sense, including the healing process and the power of sound.
We will then experience a sample of several forms of 'sound healing', including:
-
the soothing tones of the singing crystal bowls
-
the power of mantra and chanting from a variety of cultural traditions.
-
an introduction to the ancient art of overtone singing
