sound and music as a vehicle for healing. This session will examine how sound and music

defined by the AMTA.

enormous impact on us. Students will learn about the major areas of the brain and their
functions, the neuropathways through which sound and music travel, the effects that

origin and nature of things. This session will focus on a paradigm shift: that sound, tone and
music are living entities known as Devas. This concept is radically different from traditional

sacred space in physical space (a room, house, healing office/treatment room) using sound
tools, crystals, smudge, the placement of furniture and sacred objects, mantra, prayer, and
intention. The sacred space protocol is a requirement for the completion of the Sound
Healing program and is a requirement for graduation. Time will be allotted during this

in Weekend #3.)

dant. Students will learn about the role of the gut (second and third chakra/energy centers)
