Open to all levels of education and awareness, this class takes you into the heart and soul of sound to experience a visceral understanding of how we can use sound to calm and heal the mind, body and spirit.
All classes are held on Monday night from 7pm - 9:30pm at Phoenix and Dragon Annex for 8 consecutive months. No experience in Shamanism, music or sound is required. Drop-Ins accepted. Series suggested. $30/class - $195 for the series.
These classes are taught by Don Simmons, a shaman practitioner/teacher of The Shamans Path to Awakened Living and the president of the International Sound Therapy Association (ISTA).
Tuning Forks - February 19
Magic Wands of Sound Healing, the tuning forks create a bridge of sound, vibration and harmony to all it comes in contact.
Voice - March 19
The Voice is perhaps the first sound instrument used by every living being. As a Sound Instrument, the voice is an individual print of the soul released into the world when you speak.
Rattles - April 23
When one shakes a rattle you are in the infancy stage of creation. Choose your intention and your rattle becomes the Magic Wand of creation.
Percussion - May 21
Drums are perhaps the most well known and used method for Shamanic Visioning and healing. Shamans say the Drum is the Roadway to the World of the Spirits, a driving beat that puts you on the road and keeps you focused on the job at hand.
Metal Bowls - June 18
Embedded in the metal of these bowls lay a secret the earth yearns to tell. To hear, you must let go of all you know of your personal experiences, so you can choose which notes you want to play in this lifetime.
Gong - July 23
There is power in the smallest of sounds when it comes from a gong. When played properly, the body, mind and spirit comes alive with health, vitality and ancient wisdom.
Crystal Bowls - August 20
Considered to be the “Magic Carpet” of sound, the Quartz Crystal Bowls resonate to a vibration generally associated with the upper chakras. With pure intention, the sound becomes a Visionary Teacher, both wise and insightful.
Flute - September - September 17
It is said the flute “symbolizes the voice of God.” Mesmerizing, the flute is linked with the spirits in the “afterworld” and we can call into the void with a haunting tune. If you can breathe, you can play a flute.
