Professional Sound Healers Trainings
with Zacciah Blackburn, Ph.D.
Our next LEVEL II TRAINING begins again!
* Level III, third year programs *
First Year, Level I Programs: 4 - 6 day programs over 8 months
Level I IS A PREREQUISITE TO Our LEVEL II TRAININGS
and more explicit range of trainings in sound healing practice, which
greater personal & professional awareness, and outlines of the
of sound in therapeutic practice. Level
II trainings require
completion of Level I, our Foundation
Training. Consideration may be given to those completing most of
with completion of Lev I in the next class cycle, or with additional
professional skill development outside of class.
These experiential programs will take the practitioner to ever deeper levels of cognitive and experiential understanding, enriching their lives and practice. We create a coherent team of practitioners which carries into other avenues of your well being, and prepare for a third year of explicit supervised trainings. Second year students completing all courses receive a certificate of completion of studies of Level II, third year students receive a certificate of completion from the entire School program.

There is a large, comfortable living room which may be our meeting space, but, also a much larger conference room that can be used as necessary for practice, sales area, and, even game rooms attached.
Chester is a beautiful 'idyllic' VT village, with a sweet little commons, with cafes, delis, restaurants, shops, a small natural food store/deli, bookstores, and is close to a beautiful natural park with brook and outcroppings.

Meals and Housing
Meals are not provided.
You can plan on cooking our own meals, sharing potlucks, calling meals in from quality delis or go a few blocks in town to eat in. What has worked successfully, some groups have created community meals, which we have found assists beautifully in building the community of support among participants.
Each years group can decide if they wish to do this. We will communicate with registrants to determine the wishes of this new year group.
The site has limited housing, w/ two to a room in most rooms, and shared baths.
Housing will be provided first come first served.
There is a potential each program for additional housing to be available, as well as simple live in situations without private rooms. We will let you know upon registration if housing is still available. (We will provide further details to participants.)
