with Pat Moffitt Cook, PhD
A weekend Program - July 15-17, 2016
Through traditional methods of inner listening, toning practices and chanting- participants will discover simple, dynamic, timeless sonic tools used by healers, ancient scholars and divinely inspired holy men and women. These sound and music practices are designed to stimulate self-inquiry, personal healing and a deeper awareness of spiritual resonance. The main focus of the weekend will be to awaken ”inner-dialogs with Self” through sacred sound and music practices. Each day will be a combination of demonstrations, discussions, individual and group experientials. Participants will be encouraged to explore and practice what they have learned individually and in community. No experience is required.
