The course will consist of the following:
Singing Bowl Chakra Placement
Placing the Singing Bowl on various Chakras, we will learn how to sing the Bowl with ease while balancing directly on the body, allowing the depth of vibration to resonate and release energetic stagnation. This method of healing with sound has an extraordinary effect on the body, and will play an integral part in our workshop.
Chinese Wind Gong & Paiste Gong Playing the hand held Wind Gong over the body’s energy points or Chakras … gently close to body. Create Gong sounds to fill the room using the standing Paiste Gong.
The Art of Vocal Toning
Using pure vocal tones, the body’s natural tuning instrument, we will learn how to clear the Chakras and instil a healing resonance throughout the body, by “signing” or “toning” healing sounds directly into the body’s “sonic aura”. Explore your voice using Vocal Toning, which massages your voice into pure and powerful tones as you develop the art of tuning the body on a cellular level, these vocal tones resonate with the body’s molecules, balancing and releasing blockages, clearing and balancing the Chakras.
Connecting to our heartbeats through Shamanic Drumming, we’ll explore the gentleness of heart rhythm, expanding into movement.
Sounds actually become physical; its vibrations coursing through every cell, tuning the body on a cellular level using sacred sound. These vibrations resonate with the body’s molecules, balancing and releasing blockages. Learn how to choreograph and facilitate a Sound Bath, using these magical instruments and vocal techniques.

What students say ....
“I have only the highest praise for Anne Malone and her course on Sacred sound! It was one of the most enjoyable and beneficial courses I have ever attended. I learnt so much from but also, at the end of every session I felt so rested, like I had been on a little retreat! Anne has such a warm heart and a brilliant sense of humour which made everyone attending feel so comfortable and made it such a great experience! I can now confidently give a full sound bath but also have lots of little tricks to bring into my yoga classes especially during Savasana to make it even more relaxing for my students. If you are thinking of attending this course, don’t hesitate, you will enjoy every second!” Julie C, Sacred Sound Teacher Training, Feb 2020
