Sound Healing San Diego

Sound Healing in San Diego is rooted in the ancient practice of sound baths and sound therapy that utilize vibration, frequency, and intention as a means of bringing harmony and balance to the dis-eased parts of the human body and mind.  Employing a range of frequencies, sound healing works with resonance and entrainment.  Different than Music Therapy, which focuses on one’s experience of sound and music to impact mood, emotion, motivation, etc., sound healing is built upon the tenant that vibration itself is the catalyst for physical and psychological wellbeing.

Sound Healing: A Mindful Approach

Through interactive presentation, discussion, lab, and creative content, this course will honor and celebrate all learning styles as we mindfully approach the practice and art of sound healing by:

- Defining the foundations of sound as vibration and frequency
- Examining the key functions of sound, i.e. resonance and entrainment
- Introducing the parts of sound, e.g. rhythm, melody, harmony, timbre, etc.
- Differentiating between curing and healing
- Exploring the neuroscience of sound and the impact of psychoacoustics on the nervous system
- Discovering the ancillary benefits of vibration and frequency, e.g. mindfulness, higher consciousness, energy awakening/alignment, empathy, creativity, and resilience
- Experiencing first-hand the power of sound when receiving and when offering it to others
- Practicing the fundamentals and techniques of ringing and cycling glass and brass singing bowls
