“If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music.” Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

Application of Symbolic Geometry & Feng Shui for Sound Healers

Richard will share his translation of the often-enigmatic feng shui rules into a set of common-sense principles of good design, based on the laws of Nature. Students will understand how to optimize the flow of life energy into and through any space to make clients most receptive to treatments. In the second section of the course students will explore cosmological mandala images. Understand how these mandalas reveal the cosmic realities and archetypal forces of creation that lie behind the material world. Learn about the symbolic meaning of the patterns, shapes and colors used in sacred art.

Discover the Power of Boundary for Self-Healing and Healing Others.
An interactive learning experience – with Lisa Rafel
5 Classes

In 1988, following a near death experience in Nepal, Lisa Rafel began receiving direct transmissions that led her into a vastly different way of seeing herself and others. She learned about faith, energy, trust, surrender, compassion, gratitude, and courage, and she developed an extraordinary relationship with nature. Pushed by her teachers, Lisa began offering Hands on, Psychic, and Sound Healings. She was led further to travel to indigenous and ancient cultures and to learn from the people about their way of understanding science, nature and spirit. Lisa’s teaching programs integrate these understandings with her own experience and always include the power of intuition and intention, respect of boundary, applications of sound and energy, and love of self.

This workshop will address the power of boundary as it applies to healing others and to self-care. Wounds acquired in childhood, during our birth and even during our time in the womb can make us develop survival skills that confuse our authentic ability to self manage our boundary. Sound, like love, is a penetrating vibration that can directly impact others. Learn how Lisa’s technique can be useful to your own healing and to your healing practice. Exercises for self-management and a demonstration of Vocal Sound Healing™ will be included.
This class exposes students to a variety of conceptual frameworks, sound healing techniques, and unique personalities.

Instructor: Lisa Rafel

The Alchemy of Sound with Vickie Dodd
Sound is a Shapeshifter

The Alchemy of Sound is that it takes what is congealed, congested, compressed and crystallized, and changes its material to a more pliable, resilient, liquid form. The innate function and power of Sound is that it changes all matter that it touches; it can re-arrange and create shape and form.

Our body is a resonating chamber that loves the sound of our own voice. Our sound softens, relaxes and awakens the memory of wellness, cultivating an interior environment that becomes more willing and able to mend. Our voice is a means to shape shift our various physical and emotional realities on a daily basis. We are most fortunate to have this availability.

Emotional and physical stress impedes circulation of ALL fluid systems.

In this time together we will use the power of our voice as solution for restoring our liquid intelligence. We will apply practical tools to tune our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies on a daily basis. Simple use of the principles of frequency, intention and resonance provide us with an on-going form to restore ourselves into a balanced, cohesive state of being.

We will use our voices to enhance our wellbeing, improve our circulation, change physical and emotional alignment, and plug in to that which is our Source.  Sound changes form, rearranges form, creates form.

Tuning the Human Biofield

Those of us who are healers with sound see outcomes, we observe people relaxing, becoming more present and aware, achieving greater degrees of freedom. But what exactly is taking place in the body that brings about this response? And is there a way to quantify it?

Eileen Day McKusick has spent the last 20 years bouncing sound like sonar off the human body and the atmosphere around it and listening to what comes back. Her research has yielded both a profoundly powerful therapeutic treatment she calls Biofield Tuning, as well as a very specific structure of what appears to be mind and memory in the diffuse magnetic field around the body.

In this talk, Eileen will share data from her various experiments with different technologies along with some hypotheses on the mechanics of mind/body/sound interactions.
