Led by licensed creative arts therapist and sound therapist, Katie Down (MT-BC, LCAT) this weekend-long training in sound gives students an opportunity to delve into ways of listening, how listening informs our personal and professional practice, and how to use specific instruments including the voice in our healing modalities, yoga practice, meditation practice and personal lives.
About the Program
Prancing Peacock’s Sound Immersion Weekend is open to anyone interested in learning about sound as a tool for healing. Open to teachers, body-workers, yoga instructors, musicians, therapists, and anyone curious about ways of listening to connect ourselves and each other to our world.
This may be taken as a stand-alone training or selected as part of the required 40 hours elective courses for the 300 hour Teacher Training.
We will explore:
- basic sound theory
- hands-on practicum training to open students to discover their own methods and practice for incorporating sound into their own healing and process of transformation
- use a variety of instruments and voice
No prior sound experience required, however, if students are musicians and have instruments, they are encouraged to bring an instrument they feel they could use in their own personal sound practice.
Friday May 17-: 7-9p
Saturday May 18: 9:30a-5p
Sunday May 19: 10a-5p
