Cross-Cultural Sound and Music in Healing Training Program-
Year Program: Training Programs in 2021
Methodology, Sound and Music Repertoires for Healing, Personal Health Practices, Applications in your work setting.
With Pat Moffitt Cook, PhD – Primary Trainer
Level I provides an in-depth six-month training program on applications of Cross-cultural Sound and Music in Healing. Multi-cultural approaches, research, methodology, and healing sound and music repertoires are provided within highly experiential activities, discussions and visual presentations, supported by a home study curriculum and a personal daily sound practice between two 4 day intensive modules. Each module builds on the previous one and deepens the experience and knowledge of each participant. There is limited space so that special attention can be given to each individual’s personal needs and professional area. No musical experience is necessary to register.
Participants will gain a knowledge base of musical repertoire and cross-cultural therapeutic techniques including the use of sound, voice, tuning forks, sound instruments, body positions, breathing systems, cross-cultural methods of guided imagery and music, and enhanced listening skills. These exercises and applications can be successfully incorporated into professional healing and wellness practices, at home and/or used for personal self-development.
