Sound, Healing and Consciousness

An In Depth Exploration into
the Nature of Sound, Healing, and Consciousness;
their inter-relationship, and
the use of sound in healing for self, service, and cosmos

Sound healing is a growing therapeutic field proven to enhance wellness and creativity at many levels of our being.  Cultures structure, from our energetic (subtle) bodies, to our physiological and sub-atomic form.  Drawing from contemporary and throughout history have known and utilized sound, for healing, to journey into other worlds, to awaken ecstatic states of awareness and innate well being, and to illuminate one’s ancient knowing.  Modern science and therapeutic applications are adding to our understanding of the nature of sound.  Sound is the vibrational nature of Creation, as well as our human ancient cultures’ wisdom and methodolgies, we will utilize techniques with voice and simple instruments to enhance awareness and integration of sound in personal and professional practice. In Sound, Healing, and Consciousness, we shall explore the nature of authentic healing, and utilize esoteric sound practices to realize heightened states of wellness and self realization.  No musical talent or prior experience is necessary.

    Due to the nature of international travel, Zacciah will only be bringing instruments he can demonstrate.
    If you wish to bring instruments related to this workshop, to learn more deeply in hands on practice, or to utilize in practice with others, it is highly recommended. These might include, especially, crystal and Tibetan singing bowls, frame drums (hand-held drums, with beater, like traditional Native American or 'shamanic' drums,) Tibetan bells, tingshas, tuning forks, rattles.)  If you have questions about other instruments, you may bring them, and we will discuss or experience them as time permits.  You, certainly, can bring instruments for your own enjoyment during private times.

We have highly experienced staff who can assist in appropriate tools for sound healing.  
You can purchase and have shipped to you in Europe, or speak with Viola if she may wish to co-ordinate a quantity shipment which will cut down on shipment costs.

Heaven And Earth: The Gateways 
Gateway, VT
Lindau, Germany
near Lake Constance
May 25-28, 2016
Revelations in
Self Realization & Earth Awareness
The nature of the Principles of the Living Cosmos, and our Relationship to It
In the beautiful private Retreat Haus

This is an advanced level practice never before offered in Europe, and has only been offered to Zacciah's Advanced Students in the US.**

The Gateways we refer to are portals to higher dimensional states.

All Indigenous and Wisdom cultures of the world understand, utilize, support and protect these realms, their treasures, and their access.  gateway 
This is the Heart of the Mystery School Teachings.
The great Guardian beings assigned to every temple complex of the world are remnants of this understanding.  
What wisdom, what treasures reside beyond the Guardians? 
How can we insure access to these Hidden Treasures
And why can they easily be lost?

These portals are gateways that offer deep revelation and healing, and self realization which heightens one's relationship with and participation in the Living Cosmos, the Greater Whole.  These are doorways to abundant realms of hidden treasure, with blessings from the abundance of Holy Beings residing there, offered through direct revelation and communion with Pure States of the Divine, or, the Pure States of Consciousness which are our own authentic nature.
By understanding the nature of the States, one gains entry into the portals.
By understanding the nature of the portals, one can more readily access and enter these states, and integrate them into one's daily life.
By experiencing and recognizing the Holy Ones of the Holy Realms, one recognizes and more readily accepts one's own state of Divinity.
For those who wish to enrich their own lives, or ability as a professional practitioner, these are critical understandings and empowerments.
Gateway Stones
Zacciah comes to this life, and practice, as a GateKeeper.  Those whom have experienced his work may understand this.  In this practice, he brings with him an understanding which he rarely shares publicly, about the nature and method of access to these Gates.  He holds relationship with the Wisdom Keepers of many of these realms, will introduce practitioners to specific principles and techniques of entering these realms, and offer experiential practices with the potential for treasured revelations and empowerments for each participant.

These understandings can accompany one into their personal and professional world, assist in the transformative tools which will elevate us all in These Times, in one's professional practice or personal life, as well as offer the potential of real world service through the experiences we will encounter collectively in this work, to open the floodgates of the Heavens to Earth, once again, to broaden the capacity of revelation and healing the Whole World could use at this time.

The Ancestors We expect to work to further activate Star Portals that reside on this planet for the evolution of humankind, in ancient power sites.  Our ancestors whom created these sites understood exactly what they were doing.  Zacciah has active roles with such sites and their Keepers, and can access them from any distance.  And, again, he will offer methodology for such access, for those ready to understand and accept responsibility for their actions in sacred sites and sacred realms, whether of the Mind Realms (Heaven) or Earth Realms (sacred sites, natural and human inspired.)

Infused in this ‘knowing,’ is how to access, journey, and guide others through such gateways.
The healing power and potential blessing can be life altering.
We offer this knowing to those ready to take the journey.

A Special Note for the practices in Germany and Switzerland, possibly in Madrid:

Dorothy Stone in the sacred work, EgyptFor those whom have experienced Zacciah's work, you know the power of work, and his voice, expands our ecstatic and visionary healing experiences due to the nature of Sacred Sound and his ability to channel the Ancient Ones and Holy Beings of the many spiritual lineages he works with.

We have the extraordinary opportunity to join not only with Zacciah this year in Europe, but with his partner Dorothy Stone in the practices.

The work of Dorothy and Zacciah together, amplifies even moreDorothy Stone, with ally, in Tunisia the power and beauty of the connection with the Ancient Ones, and the mystical experiences this proDorothy Stonevides for most participants.  This is the first time Dorothy will be able to join Zacciah in the work in Europe, though they have been working together for years in the US.  Dorothy's devotion to the path, and her ability to channel the Divine, are equal to Zacciah's.  Thus, the voices of the Sacred Masculine and Sacred Feminine, in Divine Union, come alive through their masterful communion with and channeling of the Divine Energies of the Unseen Ones in Heaven and Earth.  You WILL want to experience this.

Blessings to all 


  • What's Going on?  What is the Real Nature of this Great Awakening?
What is happening here?
What can we do to assist?
Almost everyone seems aware of the rapid changes affecting all humanity, truly all life on Earth.  Whatever one's focus, we are on the brink of a new world.  What that world looks like will be in large part based upon the choices and decisions we each make in the coming days, and years.  We each are co-creators, with unlimited potential to seed our life, and the world, with new and compassionate/coherent ideals, seeds of integrity and harmony in our actions, heart, and mind.
Do we truly understand our potential, and Being? 

Why are so many
of us, even those working conscientiously for personal or global tansformation, reporting challenges such as added stress loads, sleep difficulties, immune deficiencies, memory lapses, and other symptoms?

At the same time, many are reporting a
ccelerated and instantaneous learning, deep understanding of esoteric principals, direct participation with holy beings of other realms, lightening of the 'veils', seeing into other worlds.  These, all, also, are becoming more commonplace. 

What is going on, and how can we do more to anchor, ground, align, balance, and harmonize both with the new influx of energies, and with our own highest/ideal being?  What do you think a collective shift of human consciousness should look like?  What can we maintain in our 'normal' way of being, seeing, and believing, and what must we drop, let go, and transform, to see into, and help to create, this New World, and alignment with the highest principals of All Creation?

Join with master teacher, intuitive guide, and wisdom keeper, Zacciah Blackburn, a sound healer and shamanic practitioner from North America.  He will share story, myth, wisdom, prophecy, simple chant, and sacred sound 'transmissions' in simple guided meditation practices, which will enable us to enter shamanic realms of the 'other worlds,' to view and ascertain for ourselves this new world, our inherent Divine Nature, and deepen our awareness of, and relationship to, that which we hold as as Sacred, and Divine.
