~Fix All of Your Attention upon the One True Source of Being~
All Else is Entanglement

"That which you seek, is not outside of you!
'Healing' means 'wholeness.'
'Wholeness' means 'holiness.'
(-Webster's Dictionary, root meanings.)
To heal is to find one's wholeness.
To find one's wholeness, is to find one's holiness."

Sound Healers Training, Extended Course

Zacciah has created a broad range of trainings in sound healing practice, which couples his deep cognitive and intuitive understanding of sound in therapeutic application.   These programs are an in depth study of the nature of sound and its healing effect on the human system, with cognitive and experiential training designed to better our understanding of, and therapeutic application in, the use of sound.   They are excellent programs to expand one's awareness and understanding in the use of sound,  for professional and novice practitioners.  Currently, 3 years of training are available, with advanced studies continuing for qualified applicants.

   Zacciah, and the Center of Light, has been honored to host the past 7 Annual Conferences on Sound Healing,
 of the International Sound Healing Network (SHN), formerly known as the New England Sound Healing Research Institute (NESHRI.)
