About The Program

The Science & Mysticism of Sound:

Neurophysiology, and the Chakras Part I: The Neurophysiology of Sound Sound is a primordial force which effects us on many levels. This program will explore the fundamental neurophysiology of the body, and the neuracoustical properties of sound: how sound effects healing, change, growth, via the natural forces at play within our human bodies, as well as other aspects of the science of sound. We will carry forward our understanding of the use of instruments and voice, focusing on a scientific foundation, such as sound to enhance homeostasis, for deep relaxation and restoration, while utilizing intuitive awareness, in practices, moving more and more into hands on work with others as the trainings progress.

Part II: Attuning the Chakras An in depth study of the nature and development of the chakras and their relationship within the subtle bodies & the human psyche; with attunement exercises via alchemical practices, esoteric exercises, toning, chant, mantra, and sacred sound transmissions, as well as working with instruments to balance and enliven these seats of consciousness. We will offer cognitive information on the nature of the Chakras, and skill development utilizing sound to balance and energize the chakras in therapeutic settings.
