 Professional Sound Healers Training

The Center of Light Institute of Sound Healing

Sound Healing Practitioner Series

Level III, Earlier Programs**:  Applications & Earth Energies ~ 6 Primary Weekends

See current Level III program

A broader and more explicit range of trainings in sound healing practice, which delve into greater personal & professional awareness, and outlines of the application of sound in therapeutic practice.    

Requires completion of Level I & II Trainings. 
Consideration given to those completing most of Level II with additional professional skill development outside of class. 

**Level III practices are designed in part with the work and input of Level III practitioners.  Current practitioners are directing the programs toward more in depth outdoor training, versus clinical therapeutic sound practices.  The students, with two years of in depth experience, view the need and their abilities to work more cohesively with Earth Energies more important to their life goals than clinical practice.  We are therefore designing the programs to fit this vision, developing skills and practices related to the nature of consciousness, and work with natural and ancient sacred sites, in Earth Healing and Awareness.  Some trainings are still in the formative stages, as we design the programs to these specific needs and goals of the participants.  Each new class will have the opportunity to move toward more cohesive clinical sound practice or applied work such as this, with Earth ceremonies.  We are currently creating a team of practitioners whom can attend to the needs of certain sites, beneficial public ceremonies for world healing services, and more.

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 ongoing use of our skills and development, as well as a community of practitioners with authentic love and support for each other.
