Emotional Healing

FINDING YOUR VOICE - Our voice is our greatest gift for healing ourselves and for healing other people. For many of us our voice becomes blocked because of painful experiences in childhood.
     If we are told at school that we can't sing we become self-conscious about our voice and loose our self-confidence when singing.

LISTENING - If our parents continually shout at us when we are children we may block out the sound frequencies in their voices. When certain frequencies become blocked in our hearing this effects our voice and our ability to sing in tune.
     This also effects the functioning of our body. In the workshop you will learn how to reawaken your hearing and reconnect with your true voice.
     The voice is often called 'the muscle of the soul'. When we find our voice again we reconnect with our joy, power and beauty.

"I can safely say that the sound healing training has been the most significant of all the spiritual work and healing I've done" - Karla

Emotional Healing



I think the most important thing I got out of the course was to learn that I have an innate ability to heal. There was a lot of encouragement on the course to feel rooted and confident about ones healing gifts. Through the practice sessions, the course helped me to realise that I really love healing work, and find it a very rewarding and uplifting part of my life. The course also helped me to see that healing work can be deeply rooting for myself as well as the one being healed. Most of all, it was a wonderful joy to share with other people in the realisation that sound and one's own voice could be used for healing in such a therapeutic way.

It was a real wonder to learn about the voice as a sacred tool for healing. It has given me so much strength to learn how to direct and focus the voice for healing, and to use it as a fine precision tool for imbalances in the body and etheric bodies. I felt on the course, and still feel, that we were asked to trust the practice of Sound Healing. It still amazes me, that such a simple thing of sounding over the body can bring such deep relaxation and healing to people. I needed to trust my instincts and focus on the unseen, what I could hear rather than see. The session work we did has really helped me to be more present with others and focused on the healing process. I am still working on trusting my instincts in each treatment I do.

I really enjoyed doing the case studies at home. Although at first it was a bit daunting, by part four I felt very confident while doing the treatments. I felt that the treatments were very rewarding. Not only did they give the client a lot of extra energy, but I found that I was receiving a boost of energy each time I did a session. I noticed that after a treatment on a client, I would generally feel really well, as if I had just had a treatment for myself. It seemed like a win win situation.

The chanting that we learned on the course has been really great for me. Working with the Chakra Chanting CD has improved my health, and kick started me on the road to cleansing my chakras. It has also cleared and strengthened my singing voice. I think it has taught me to trust my own singing voice, as a powerful bringer of light and healing. The course has reviewed my whole outlook on music and singing. To me music seems enshrined in beneficence. I can't help approaching it now as an art form of sacred giving and healing. I feel more strongly now how it transcends barriers, and acts as a beacon of love. These feelings about music have really developed and strengthened in me since doing the Sound Healing course.

The harmony and music theory part of the course was also an eye opener. I got more understanding of harmony in this course than all my music theory classes at school put together. I found this part of the course fascinating, and really think that the work we did on intervals, cymatics and harmony should all be part of the basic principles of Music Theory in schools. I would love to do more work on these subjects as an extra module.

I felt really supported during the course. The course encouraged us to feel that everyone can sing, and that each person's voice is unique and has its own beauty and strength. I felt that the course created a very loving environment to learn in. Everyone was welcome, and I liked the way we were assessed at each term. I liked the way that the course was structured. There was a lot of time to explore the subjects we had worked on at each workshop, and the work was easy to fit in with ones normal working life. The setting was lovely, and everyone was really welcoming.

I feel the course has helped me to strengthen and re-energise the spiritual aspect of my life. I feel it has grounded me a lot, and given me more direction and clarity in furthering and developing my capabilities in the healing arts. I am glad that there is a firm group of people supporting the College, and having a Sound Healing Conference each year is a great idea for would be Sound Healers to keep in the loop.

Sound Healing, I think, is a fascinating subject to learn. I feel that it is just the beginning of a therapy with much to give. There seems to be a lot more that we can learn in Sound Healing, perhaps not just as a therapy, but its role in society at large. I am really interested in the work people are doing with Sound Healing in schools and hospitals. I think that with more scientific research into the subject, and people's intuitive guidance in music and sound, we will see Sound Healing developing and gaining in popularity in the community at large.
