Sound Healing Therapies
See our most up to date information on Sound Therapies and individual practices here.

Zacciah accepts appointments for individual healing work or training in sound healing therapies.  This work is an eclectic blend of spiritual counseling, clairvoyant insight, and shamanic and sacred sound therapy, designed to help one connect with inner guidance and spiritual nourishment, clarify life issues, work with deep healing where needed, and to find one's own voice and authenticity in the world. The work is  to help you find and establish your path in your own sacred journey, to help you identify and remove obstacles to obtaining your own greatest good.  We whom have been on this journey, best understand it, and can best assist others.  We do not provide medical diagnosis, nor specifically address physical symptomology, though there often may be some relationship to deeper spiritual work.  There is growing research which shows the mindbody connection, as well as research reflecting the use of sound therapies beneficial to many forms of traditional healing.

You may call or e-mail Zacciah at to discuss your personal needs.
There is an in depth article on the nature of Sound Healing linked below, which may give you further insight into this work, and a link here to Zacciah's background.

See our Professional Sound Healers trainings for current listings of this event

Prior notes on our circles:

We will explore a wide variety of sound techniques during this series.  Cost is  -- per meeting.     Zacciah will focus on a shamanic technique in which he will be offering a connection with special elements of earth energies, known as the "prayer keepers," whom may be accessed to send healing prayers to others.  We will focus our attention on the needs of children of the world, and especially those children whom you bring our thoughts to in the circle.  Send in your prayers if you cannot join us.  August 10, I will offer a preface of sound healing techniques such as you would learn in these trainings.   We hope to have guest teachers for this circle on a regular basis, and offer benefits for SHN through this event as well.  

No experience is necessary.  Sound healing is a process of the heart.  No vocal or instrumental training is necessary to participate fully in any class.  Appropriate for novice and practitioner, for those whom wish to learn or improve their meditation skills, experience healing in a fundamental, yet potentially profound manner, and those who wish to build community.

The use of Sacred Sound comes in many formats throughout the world.  Come and explore with us its many tapestries as we work with voice, drum, flute, bowl and other instruments of Spirit with the use of Sacred Sound as a portal into deeper self exploration, greater dimensions of being and awareness, and transformation and integration into more complete or fulfilled spiritual/human beings.  This is also an excellent opportunity to be introduced to Zacciah's work.  Elements of workshops may be incorporated into these circles.  You do not need to play an instrument to participate.  Zacciah uses his voice, and the voice of the instruments as doorways to other dimensions, or levels of awareness.
