Opening Keynote
“Higher Consciousness – All Frequencies at the Same Time”
David Gibson

The basis of Higher Consciousness through vibration is “a stable vibration” versus  “a higher vibration.”

David  discusses the higher consciousness at 4 different levels: Physically, Mentally, Emotionally and Spiritually.

At each level, it is all about stable, coherent frequencies, timbres that contain harmonious harmonic intervals, relationships that are harmonious, and flows that are smooth without blockages.

However, ultimately higher consciousness is when we are tuned into multiple frequencies at once — the highest being when you are tuned into all frequencies in the Universe at once — that place where you are “One with the Universe and all those in it.”  This state is a measurable brainwave state and is easily accessed with sound.  David will perform several sound meditations to help us access this state.

He will also discuss how to live more in the state of multidimensionality where there is the most profound peace and stillness… and Indescribable Universal Love.

“What the Voice Can Do for You”
Lisa Rafel

Intentional sound, voicing thoughts through words, and creating melodies are skills that when combined with conscious listening awakens self-awareness and intuitive connectivity with our spiritual body.

Learn more about what your voice can really do! What you say and how you say it – how you make sounds, and listen to those sounds can awaken self- awareness and embodied strength.   What is conscious listening? How can you listen to your “self”? When we understand our choices, we are free to change and align in new ways.

Using intentional sound and words, we will explore your ability to expand your “vocalizing” and your “listening” skills. Each time you use your voice it is for a purpose. Attuning to your “higher” purpose, your voice is not only a remarkable instrument – it is an extraordinary healing tool.

“The Sound of Your Light”
Silvina Vergara

In this sound healing workshop we will utilize frequencies of sound to experience vibrational accord with your higher self .

This is an opportunity to experience subtle fields of energy through remembering who we are and

profound connection to our true essence. We all have a different vibratory frequency and when we listen to the sound of our light, we illuminate the path of consciousness, process our shadow, and elevate the activation of life force which expands our consciousness.

Practicing presence with inner sound and creating harmonics of sound brings back our awareness of profound universal love.  We will be accessing different frequencies in the body., and activating transformation at the cellular level.  This unlocks our internal wisdom that is stored deep in our DNA.

Embracing the light within, shifting and evolving, we all can contribute to light up our planet.

Silvina Vergara channels melodies that transport and guide participants on a “Healing Journey by Transmission”, utilizing sound as vehicle to communicate.

Morning Keynote
“Awakening the Internal Physician with Sound”
Dr. Jeffrey Thompson

As healers, we have never done the healing for another person. We can only do the healing for ourselves. For others, we are actually the Grand Physician’s Assistant, using whatever tools we have accumulated to awaken the Healing Powers within, to stir and do their job. As a Holistic Physician, Dr. Jeffrey Thompson has many “tools”, but uses Sound as his primary “Tool” to initiate a gentle but powerful Healing Cascade in patients.

In this day of hi-technology, we can now use cutting-edge medical monitoring systems that can show where the imbalances are in the Brain and in the core “Bio-Computer” – the System that orchestrates, synchronizes and coordinates the functioning of all body systems – organs, glands, meridians, biochemistry, chakras, etc — and use specific sound frequencies to rebalance these master control systems. Using these precisely calibrated sound frequencies is “Star Trek” Scientific Sound™ Healing in the 21st Century.

It doesn’t stop at healing, however, for at some point a patient/client/participant is no longer someone who is “broken”, looking to get fixed. He or she is now someone who is whole, asking “What’s Next?” The answer to this question is as old as humans have been around, in every culture on earth. Sound has been a primary choice for expanding consciousness and self-awareness. Now, combining the latest scientific monitoring devices with advanced meditators, psychics and spiritual mystics, we can see in unprecedented detail what advanced conscious states look like in the brain and nervous system and use new, advanced Scientific Sound™ techniques for changing brainwave states to create new levels of increased self-awareness, advanced pre-cognitive ability and intuition, creativity, lateral thinking and epiphany states of consciousness.

Explore this exciting world of the future that is here now, with Dr. Jeffrey Thompson. His presentations can blow your socks off and change your mindscape forever.

“How Healing Works Based on the Kaballah and The Tree of Life”
Rabbi Steven Fisdel

The central focus of the Kabbalah, one of the world’s oldest mystic traditions, is on the nature and structure of creation itself. Among the primary issues addressed by the Kabbalah is how universal energy unfolds, becomes organized and flows within the various levels of consciousness. The Kabbalah understands creation as a process.  As such, it delineates important realities within creation also as processes, one of the most important being Healing.

This presentation will cover the relationship between the structure of creation, the dynamics of the creative process and the progressive nature of healing. In our exposition of healing seen from the framework of the Kabbalah, we will be discussing the different levels of consciousness and how they contribute to the healing process, as well as how they are impacted by it. Since this presentation is an introduction, no previous knowledge of Kabbalah is required. Everyone is welcome.

Sonatherapy
Gary Buchanan

Dr. Gary Buchanan began developing Sonatherapy – Healing with Light, Color, Sound, Water & Subtle Energies – in 1975. In this workshop individuals will learn how this revolutionary new therapy is being made available at Steamboat Healing Center in Reno, Nevada and at other licensed clinics now established elsewhere in the U.S., Europe, Japan, South Africa, and Australia. (See: www.sonatherapy.com)

For this workshop emphasis will be upon specific Wave Front Bioresonance™ (some 2,500 arrays developed to date), the arts, sciences, and technologies of 5- and 6-frequency optimal Sonations employed in therapies for myriad conditions, with documented case studies and unique application systems using analog sound. Attendees will be able to personally experience sounds generated by the Sona Analog Box and as applied with various hand held stereo wands and transducers, and learn how sound is now being embedded within LED and Laser beams (Sona-Lite Systems), as well as transported in water (acoustic foot baths, tubs, and pools).

Cymatic videos of the Sonations will also be viewed, discussed, and explained as scientifically healing geometries (Synergetics). This is the “medicine of the future.”

Bio-guided Music Therapy with Native Flute Biofeedback and Vocal Toning
Eric Miller and Lynn Miller

In this session we will introduce fundamental concepts of Bio-guided Music Therapy with a focus on utilizing real-time physiological data with Native Flute biofeedback. We will also introduce vocal toning as a modality for internal Neuromodulation.

Neuromodulation is the ability to change the nervous system through an externally, or internally applied modality. Toning can be considered one of the most natural and direct tools for neuromodulation since it uses the voice, an instrument of the body. Toning is intentional vocal sounding for the purposes of relaxation, meditation, prayer, self-expression, emotional release and/or pain reduction. A single study brain map, of the presenter, will reveal changes in brain wave patterns while toning.

Via demonstration, we will create musical environments with vocal toning and Native Flute melodies triggered by real-time physiological measures of heart-rate, GSR and EEG brainwaves.

Target disorders: anxiety, high blood pressure, ADHD, Autism, depression, and addictions.

“Sound, Consciousness and Healing: The Science of Vibration”
Elizabeth Krasnoff

With a background in Jungian psychology and music, and as a certified sound practitioner and energy healer, Elizabeth started a sound healing practice called Sound Medicine. Working with sound raised many questions. How are sound and consciousness related? How do we heal with sound? Can sound entrain our brains to advanced levels of consciousness?

Elizabeth will discuss a broad transdisciplinary sweep of what neuroscience (Oliver Sacks and Daniel Levitin), quantum physics (Ervin Laszlo), mystics (Rudolph Steiner), sound healers and musicians have to say. She will show how vibration has journeyed from spirituality to science. She will also show that sound and consciousness converge at the level of vibration. And lastly Elizabeth will explain and demonstrate how sound affects our well being and consciousness through vibration.

Embodied Rhythm Mandalas
Ryan Moore

In this workshop participants will be guided into understanding complex rhythmic structures both experientially and intellectually.

  • Are you are interested in learning how to make complex rhythmic structures from all across the globe simple, accessible and playable?
  • Do you want to enjoy the benefits of understanding rhythm in the mind, while experiencing rhythm in the body?

We will explore one theory of what cyclical structures underlie rhythms from all over the world, as well as one method of ‘unlocking’ this understanding somatically.

Participants will be guided into both ‘thinking’ and ‘feeling’ rhythm simultaneously, and by the end everyone will have an opportunity to relax and drop deeply into ‘feeling’ rhythm in their bodies so that we can all enjoy a shared experience of play and joyful music-making together.

Harmonics of the Divine Feminine in Sound and Sacred Geometry
Randy Masters

Much of Sound research, physics and Sacred Geometry has been from the Male point of view and has missed the Divine Feminine Creatrix that supports Creation  and restores Wholeness.  This workshop presentation will highlight the Numbers and Spiritual Math of what Dr Edward Gardner termed, The Night Side of Nature, the sometimes unseen and unheard aspect of reality. This is the part that represents the As Below aspect of the Alchemical Law, (As Above, So Below), where the Overtone Series reprints As Above and the Undertone Series represents So Below. It gets deeper as these Numbers and Ratios are built into Sacred Sites all around the World by those that understood the deeper laws of Nature. There are many good reasons why these numbers are encoded in sacred sites by many Ancient Cultures.  Revealing this information is part of restoring the Balance of Male and Female Energies that contribute to our Understanding of Harmonic Law and Spiritual Awakening.

Participants will get to hear many of these important sounds, numbers and relationships to activate our remembering and respect for the Whole in Creation. These “secrets” have great implications in Sound Healing and Spiritual Attunement.”
