Sound Healing Instruments & Manual

Sound Healing Apprentice Program | Summer/Fall 2024

Have you ever experienced a Sound Bath, or Sound Healing instruments, and left wanting to know more? Are you interested in learning about how Sound Healing works, what it's doing, what the intention is behind it, and how to play the crystal bowls and other Sound Healing instruments? Then this Sound Healing Apprentice Program is for you!

This Sound Healing Training Apprenticeship program, led by Kate, is the perfect place to start or continue on your own Sound Healing journey. In this sound healing apprentice program, in a weekly 60-90 minute lecture and discussion format, we will look at the origins of Sound Healing, what sound is, how sound impacts our physical, emotional and energetic body, and how Sound Healing can be used to calm the mind and body, bringing us into a state of homeostasis, the ideal condition for self-healing and acceptance. Kate will demonstrate how to play a wide variety of Sound Healing instruments including crystal bowls, gongs, chimes, drums, Tibetan bowls, Native American flute and much more.

If attending in person versus Zoom, you will then have the opportunity for hands-on playing time, where you will get to play with the wide variety of instruments Kate uses in her private Sound Healing sessions and events, and additional opportunities of assisting with Jeny and Kate's Sound Bath events over the course of the program. You can expect to graduate this program with a foundational knowledge of the science behind Sound Healing, personalized instructional coaching, the chance to play many different Sound Healing instruments, as well as learning how to set up and sequence a Sound Bath.

    ZSB Sound Healer

    Katharine is a Hatha, Vinyasa, Restorative and Yin Yoga Teacher. For Katharine, yoga unifies the body, mind, and spirit in a conscious meditative practice that ebbs and flows like the waves of the ocean, and calls us to go deep within ourselves. Katharine practices yoga to strengthen and open her mind and body in order to help her to stay in the present moment, and loves to help others do the same.

    Currently, Katharine primarily teaches Restorative and Yin Yoga styles. In her classes she focuses on the energetic body as well as the physical body. She loves to cultivate intentional, slow and conscious practices that encourage the student to soften and release tension in the mind and body, connect with the present moment, and shift into a state of calm peacefulness.

    Katharine is also a Sound Healing Practitioner and Educator. She is passionate about sharing the healing power of Sound which she weaves into her yoga classes. Katharine offers Sound Healing experiences through her public events, private Sound Healing sessions, and leads workshops and trainings on Sound Healing. Sound, also known as vibration, is a healing modality that can bring us into alignment with our divine essence/our true nature. Coherent sonic environments such as "sound baths" recalibrate the nervous system, bringing us into homeostasis, and impact how the brain is organized.
