Oasis of Sound . OnLine SacredSound Training . January 2021
Oasis of Sacred Sound on-line Course is an introduction to the elements of Sacred Sound instruments, vocal toning, chants & mantra singing, which will give participants basic tools to facilitate a SoundBath and incorporate Sacred Sound into their yoga, holistic, personal class or practice.
Who is this training for?
Anyone interested in an introduction to combining Sound Healing, Mantra and Song within their Yoga/Holistic practice and/or class; musicians who wish to add a healing dimension to their compositions; anyone wanting to learn how to use Singing Bowls, Drums, and Rainstick; and those wishing to enhance their quality of life and healing through the use of sound therapy.
What are Sacred Sound instruments?
Sacred Sound instruments make up a SoundBath as offered by Anne. These include the Tibetan Bowl, Hand Held Gong, Celtic Drum (Bodhran), Hang, Rainstick and Sansula. You will “meet” these magical friends on this unique training.
What is Vocal Toning?
Using pure vocal tones; the body’s natural tuning instrument, to clear stagnant energy by “signing” or “toning” healing sounds directly into the body’s sonic aura. Vocal Toning can be used as a sonic diagnostic tool by sonically scanning the body.
We will ZoomRoom 2 days per month over three months, 2 hours in the morning, a 1 hour break followed by 2 hours in the afternoon. These sessions will be supported with technical videos, which you can access via my website.
We will each have a one hour 121 session, which we can arrange as the course progresses.
The only instrument that is essential for the training is a Singing Bowl … I source large (9 inch diameter) and medium (6 inch diameter) Singing Bowls, which I personally choose so that they are ideally suited to the healing sound we create, as the Singing Bowl and Vocal Toning are the foundations of Oasis of Sound Training. All the other instruments are optional, and can be obtained from “Knock on Wood” at a student discount. Singing Bowls cost £375 for large or Goddess Bowls, and £200 for medium or Goddette Bowls!
They all come in a lovely box with 2 mallets, 1 cushion, 1 book. Click here to view.
