COURSE DESCRIPTIONS

“Each celestial body, in fact each and every atom, produces a particular sound on account of its movement, its rhythm or vibration. All these sounds and vibrations form a universal harmony in which each element, while having it’s own function and character, contributes to the whole.”
Pythagoras (569-475 BC)

Even though this is from an online class, it will give you a good example of how the classes work at the Institute. This is the first class of the semester on Resonance with David Gibson.  It includes information on the physics of sound and ends with the frequency of God or Source (all frequencies in the Universe).  Note that this class is a little more technical.  Many of the classes are very experiential.  Also David is only one of 12 instructors.  Each instructor has their own unique style.

Course Descriptions

There are 5 Courses within the Sound Healing and Therapy Certificate Program:

The Overview course gives you an understanding of the basic structure of sound, and how sound can be used for various intentions –physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. We look at the history of sound healing and where the future is leading. We begin with the physics of sound, resonance and the harmonic structure of sound. We do a thorough examination of the physiology of the body and it’s relation to the emotional and spiritual bodies — and they work with sound and energy. We also explore the use of sound to bring people into various states of consciousness and shift individuals into particular brainwave states, such as delta, theta, alpha and gamma.

The classes on Sound Healing Instruments (in the Overview Course) focus on using the Crystal Bowls, Tibetan Bowls, Tuning Forks, and a full range of other instruments for healing and raising consciousness. You learn about archetypal frequencies and how different tonal qualities affect us.  You also learning how to play each instrument and various ways to use them in a sound healing session or event.

The Inner Awareness and Transformation course is about using sound as tool for your own inner work. The clearer of a vessel you are, the cleaner the energy that you transmit when working on people or clients. This work is about releasing deep patterns emotional and mentally. It’s about healing yourself physically. It’s also about bringing more love and spirit to your work.  As you experience these techniques for yourself, you also learn how to use them to help others heal themselves.  We then embark on many experiential and transformative workshops using sound and intention — including those that combine sound with movement.

The Inner Music course is about seeing Music as the structure of the nature and the Universe — and us physically, mentally, emotionally and Spiritually.  You will learn how musical intervals are the relationship between any two things in the Universe — whether that be two planets, two plants, two crystals, or two people.  You then start to see the harmony or dissonance in a whole new light — with no judgement.  You then understand music as a way of transforming relationships.

The Voice, Toning, Chant and Mantra course focuses on how to use the voice for making a full range of sounds — for healing others and yourself and to create a field of coherent sacred space. We practice toning, chants from all over the world, the power of mantra, and overtone singing.

The Sound Consciousness and Spirituality course is designed to give you an deeper understanding of how healing occurs, and what higher consciousness is in the first place. We look at how everything is connected at the quantum level, mathematically, and spiritually — sound, music, color, light, geometries, chemistry, physics, consciousness and spirituality — and how you can add these components to a Sound Healing session. By studying the correspondences between all of these areas we see the interconnectedness of all human beings to each other, to nature and to the universe. Understanding things at a deeper level helps you to be more in alignment with the true nature of reality. The more you are in alignment with reality of nature, and the natural flow of spirit, the more powerful your sound work will be.

Sound Healing and Therapy Overview
15 Classes

This Course covers the full perspective of everything going on of the field of Sound Healing and Sound Therapy. It gives you a good overview of the basic structure of sound and how it can be used for meditation, relaxation, learning, productivity, healing and raising consciousness. We also look at the history and ethics of music and sound healing.

We begin with the basic concepts of Sound Healing including the Law of Resonance, Entrainment, the Harmonic Structure of Sound, the effect of different Volumes on people, and the powerful effects of Phase Cancellation on us physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

Steven Halpern brings his years of experience and information gathering to the class.

We also discuss how Voice Analysis systems work and we perform Voice Analyses on each of the students.

We look at the importance of tuning systems based on nature. And, we go through all of the archetypal healing frequencies that have been used since the beginning of time — from 1 – 400,000 Hertz.

We discuss binaural beats and how they entrain the brain into different brainwave states (gamma, alpha, theta, delta and subdelta), and synchronize the left and right brain.

We then look at all of the techniques for releasing stuck emotions with sound. These techniques are extremely important, because many say that 50% of disease is as a result of stuck emotions.

We discuss how nature sounds heal and we listen to the secret world that you find when you slow them down electronically. Nature is the most amazing sound healer of all.

Susanne Runion covers how to market your Sound Healing Practice in the Sound Healing Marketing. Susanne has written the main book in the field on Alternative Therapies Marketing. She shares over 100 detailed practical techniques for attracting and retaining clients with little or no money — and doing it with integrity.

For those taking the full Certificate Program, this class is like “homeroom” for all of the other classes.

Inner Music Theory
5 Classes

This class covers the fundamentals of music theory with an emphasis on how each aspect affects human beings on all levels. The course uses creative techniques to help students acquire a deeper understanding of the nuances of intervals and musical composition. The course uses the harmonic structure as the basis for the exploration of the underlying meaning of musical intervals.

With a basic grounding in the terminology and mechanics of music we will explore how to apply emerging knowledge and ideas in Psychoacoustics to actual pieces of music and live healing sessions.

  • Harmonic Series and Intervals
  • Rhythm and Groove
  • Tuning Systems
  • Toning, Seed Syllables, Mantra
  • Sacred Geometry
  • Live flow of a healing session
  • Resonance of relationship

This course will provide some fundamentals of concepts in music, the association of these concepts to developing healing music and a safe place to explore the various modalities of psychoacoustics through active listening and creative projects.

Additionally, this course will emphasize the development of the student’s abilities of discernment around the inner experience of sound. This ability is key to understanding the nature of the effects of different modalities of healing and styles of music. It also provides the foundation for a truly meaningful exchange between the healer and the client- the very basis for that conversation is an ability to understand how these tools affect us- how sound and music affect our consciousness and our bodies.

Sacred Geometry – Harmonics of Space
4 Classes

In the ancient mystery schools, the study of the harmonics or proportions of Nature, the human body, architecture and music were considered to be a single subject. The intention of this course is to bring awareness of the proportions of spaces and natural forms to those studying the harmonics of sound, so you can see the harmonics you hear, and to explore how the knowledge of the symbolic meaning of geometrical shapes can support the art of healing with sound.

Geometry is the ultimate basis of harmony;
it guides the growth of the human skeleton and all material forms

Goals:

• To familiarize those who are studying the harmonics of sound with the parallel subject of the harmonic ratios found in two- and three-dimensional space, via the ancient discipline of symbolic geometry.

• To provide a visual and kinesthetic avenue to understand the laws of natural harmony – to see and touch the harmonic ratios that one hears in music, to create a more multi-sensory understanding of harmonics.

• To stimulate renewed exploration, beyond the limits of this introductory session, into the ancient concept that architectural environments possess vibratory qualities, depending on their proportions, which can affect human consciousness. (“Why does this space feel good?” is a similar question to “Why does this music move me to tears?”)
