The School of Sound and Healing is an integral part of the Art of Healing School of
Energy Medicine. It offers a variety of Certificates and Designations in Sound Therapy –
the study of the effect of sound on human beings physiologically, psychologically, emotion-
ally and spiritually. The school was established in 2015 and provides a comprehensive
curriculum that has been designed with the input and talents of Wisconsin’s most
experienced sound healers. The intention in the development of the school was to create
a program that provides students with the information and experience they need most to
be able to understand how to facilitate their own healing process and that of others.

Students in the program will explore ancient and powerful sound healing techniques that
were used successfully by indigenous cultures throughout time, and will explore the latest
research and science available in the study of healing through sound frequencies that encourage healing from within.

There are 14+ instructors involved in the School of Sound and Healing program. Instruc-
tors will teach in the fundamental classes, the specialty areas of instruction, or the Master

requirements, required student projects, recommended reading, general expectations,
and introductions to the faculty and fellow students.

6:45 pm History of Sound and Healing:
From human’s early beginnings (as evidenced in recent acoustic archeological discoveries)
in the upper Paleolithic through today, students will explore the rich history of humanity’s use
of sound and music as a vehicle for healing. This session will examine how sound and music
was employed by different cultures, time periods, and belief systems to facilitate healing on
the physical, emotional, and spiritual levels. The class will conclude with a clarification
between sound and healing, music as therapy, and the profession of music therapy as defined
by the AMTA.

in human history and in healing. Students will be able to describe the difference between
sound and healing and music therapy (AMTA) certification.
Instructor: Kathryn Rambo, MT

Saturday, February 2, 2019

10:00 am: Neurobiology of Sound:
Whether it is the sound of a dentist’s drill, the atonal music of John Cage, or a melody played
on a Native American cedar flute, it is clear that both sound and music have an enormous
impact on human beings. Students will learn about the major areas of the brain and their
functions, the neuro-pathways through which sound and music travel, the effects that sound
and music have on the whole person, and current research on the physiological, emotional,
and cognitive changes that occur when sound and music are applied intentionally in a
healing setting.

Learning Outcomes: Students will be able to describe the complex effects that sound has on
clients. Students will journal about and share their personal physiological, emotional, and
cognitive experiences with sound protocols taught throughout the semester.
Instructor: Kathryn Rambo, MT

11:00 am: Anatomy of the Subtle Body
This course focuses on providing students with the different fields of Energy that make up the
Subtle Body including the Chakras, Meridians, and Auric Field.

Learning Outcomes: Students will have a basic working knowledge of the aura, chakras,
and meridians and will understand how Frequency and Sound affects these areas.
Instructors: Kathryn Rambo, MT and Sheri Bauer

Lunch: 11:45 am -12:15 pm

12:15 PM: Disease and Dis-ease and Sound and Healing
According to the dictionary, ease is defined as a state of being at comfort, the absence of
pain or discomfort, a quiet state of mind, feeling of being at rest. When used as a verb it
means to be free from anxiety or care. Dis-ease means being stressed and having difficulties
with being at peace. It can also mean feeling pressured, tense, or unable to ‘shift gears’. Part
of a sound and healing session is to help the client move from a state of dis-ease to one of
ease. We will look at the natural process of healing and use that as a model for creating
sound and healing protocols.
Instructor: Kathryn Rambo, MT

12:45 pm: Manifesting with Intention
Intention can be defined as “the projection of awareness, with purpose and efficacy, toward
some object or outcome”. Students will discover how they can influence physical matter via
positive versus negative thought, intentions, affirmations, and sound. They will discover how
they can influence physical matter via highly motivated and targeted thought. This class
involves active participation and will provide students with the basic components for creating
their own intention statements that have a healing focus for self- and/or a client’s healing.

Learning Outcomes: Students will be able to describe how words and intention play a
significant part in wellness, in sound healing, and in allopathic medicine. Given examples,
students will be able to identify and differentiate between intentions.
Instructor: Kristina Nez Begay

Break: 1:45 pm

1:45 – 2:45 pm: Manifesting with Sound
This experiential class will include scientific evidence of brain wave states with focus on
the Theta Brain Wave which is considered a shamanic state of consciousness or luminous
awareness. Students will explore why the Theta Brain Wave state is the frequency that
people are striving to achieve through mediation, yoga, and other types of energy work.
Students will also explore rhythmic drumming as a tool to relax and release any heaviness
causing energetic blockages.

Learning Outcomes: Students will be able to demonstrate basic drumming techniques to
facilitate deep relaxation and a Theta Brain Wave state. They will be able to communicate
in a group setting how intention affected the outcome of their experience and what clarity
they received because of the drumming experience.
Instructor: Kristina Nez Begay

Students will participate in a Drum Wash to clear chakras and energy fields.
Instructor: Kristina Nez Begay

Break: 3:15 pm

3:30 – 5:00 pm: Creating Sacred Space using Gongs
The history and use of gongs (and other metal instruments), as one of the oldest therapeutic
instruments used in vibrational therapy, will be discussed. Theories and research about how
gongs affect cell structure, awaken the subtle body, and help the nervous system to achieve
a sense of balance will be explored. In recent decades, a renewed interest in the therapeutic
impact of resonant frequencies on the human organism have prompted experimentation and
research from individuals such as Manfred Bleffert, born in 1950 in Altenahr, Germany.
Students will be introduced to the Bleffert instruments and attune their senses to experience
and identify the tone qualities present. They will receive instruction on the proper techniques
to play the instruments allowing optimal sound to be produced. A range of gongs, finger
cymbals, Tam Tam, and iron bars will be demonstrated and students will be given the
opportunity to experience each individual sound tone and frequency from the instruments
provided. Students will then play the instruments as a group, creating a unique "cascade of
sound frequencies" as they explore the experience of tones and silences resonating in
collective harmony with each other.

Learning Outcomes: Students will be able to explain the effect and use of gongs in
vibrational healing, explain the role of a gong in a sound session, particularly on the
nervous system and biofield, demonstrate the use of a gong including proper striking
technique, production of frequencies, materials used, and the ability to evaluate and
adjust the gong's use in a gong sound bath session.
Instructor: Gail Sauter, MSW

covers: sound waves, amplitude, frequency, fundamental, partials/overtones, hertz, pitch,
timbre, rhythm, noise, harmonics, binaural beats, scales, intervals, steps, rhythm, melody,
dissonance, resonance, entrainment, and music.

Learning Outcomes: Students will be able to describe the elements of sound including:
rhythm, harmony, melody, intervals, steps, consonance/dissonance, frequency, pitch, hertz,
timbre, sound waves, entrainment, and binaural beats as these relate to the use of sound
and healing. Students will effectively demonstrate their understanding of the sound
fundamentals as they develop and demonstrate their sound protocols.
Instructor: Kathryn Rambo, MT

11:00 am: Introduction to Sound Instruments/Tools with Demonstration

Students will learn about and experience many of the sound tools that can be used for
meditation, self-healing, and for a client in a treatment room. They will learn how to prepare
the physical space surrounding a client in preparation for a healing session. The space
clearing tools include sage, incense, and aromatherapy. The sound tools include rattles,
drums, Tibetan bowls, tuning forks, the crystal pyramid, and the crystal bowl.
Instructors: Sheri Bauer & Kathryn Rambo, MT

Lunch: 12(noon) -12:30pm

12:30 pm: Curriculum Overview for areas of Specialization for Tibetan Bowls and Tuning Forks.

Instructors will introduce the curriculum for their individual specialty areas which will be
held over weekends in March (Tibetan Bowls) and April (Tuning Forks).
Instructors: Kathryn Rambo and Sheri Bauer

1:00 pm – Deep Listening Skills for Effective Energy Assessments
In order to use Tuning forks, Tibetan Singing Bowls, drums, or other sound and healing
instruments, students must be able to listen deeply to the subtle tones and harmonics that
sound instruments can make. Learning the skill of deep listening involves learning how to
recognize the unique sound of instruments and how those sounds alter when played with
and without intention. Students will also learn how to listen to the pitches, harmonics, or
overtones of the instruments and how these change once the instrument is placed in a
client’s energy field.

Learning outcomes: Students will be able to describe deep listening. Students will be able
to recognize the difference in timbre and tone qualities when instruments are played away
from and inside an energy field.
Instructors: Sheri Bauer and Kathryn Rambo, MT

2:00 pm: Energy Diagnostics using Tingshas Demonstration and Student Experiential
Part of the intense interest in the field of vibrational medicine is the knowledge that
disharmony shows up in the energy field before it becomes a problem in the body. If
imbalances can be detected while still in the energy field, theoretically disease can be
avoided altogether. During this class, students will learn about the history of the tingshas (two
metal discs tied together by a leather cord), how tingshas have been used throughout time in
ritual, meditation, and how to clear different fields of energy. Students will learn to use the
tingshas to determine potential energy imbalances in the auric field of another student.
They will also learn and practice a technique using the tingshas to clear any existing
dissonant energy.

Learning Outcomes: Students will experience using their deep listening skills and be able
to determine the subtle shifts in sound during an energy assessment using Tingshas. They
will also apply their sensing skills to be able to feel the “drag and pull” of the tingshas as they
pass through a dissonant area during an energetic scan and apply the corrective measures that
rebalance the energy field.
Instructor: Sheri Bauer

2:30 pm: Energy Diagnostics using a single crystal

Quartz crystals amplify, store, transmit, and transform energy and therefore make excellent
companions in sound and healing sessions, especially for assessing energy fields. In energy
work it is important to first assess, then cleanse and repair, harmonize or balance and, lastly,
to install a protective layer to the area. Quartz crystal single terminated points or a quartz
crystal egg are both great tools for energy diagnostics. Students will learn how to scan the
aura using a quartz crystal as a prequel to a sound and healing session to determine what
areas of the aura are out of balance.
Instructor: Kathryn Rambo, MT

3:15 pm: Questions/Answers about days activities and Closing Meditation



Friday Evening, March 1, 2019
6:00 pm: Creating Safe, Welcoming, and Sacred Space: Lecture and Demonstration of
Personal Protocol

A panel discussion will offer an overview of the many tools that can be used in creating a
space that feels safe, relaxing, comfortable, and free from the stress of the outside world
when clients come for a sound session. Instructors will share their techniques and protocols
for personal centering between clients as well as ways to create an atmosphere that allows
the client to let go of their stresses and tensions.

Learning Outcomes: Students will be able to distinguish harmonious or balanced energy
from dissonant or discordant energy of space. Students will be able to apply their knowledge
of energies to developing their own protocol for clearing and creating a comfortable space.

10: 00 am: Tibetan Singing Bowl Protocol for Deep Relaxation and Stress Reduction
According to the National Institute of Health, there is a complex relationship between
negative stress and illness. It is estimated that 70% to 90% of doctor visits are for stress-related
issues. Studies have shown that short-term (acute) stress boosted the immune system, but long
term (chronic) stress has a significant effect on the immune system, suppressing it, leading
ultimately, to manifesting an illness. Students will learn the impact of chronic stress and the
role that Tibetan singing bowls play in eliciting the relaxation response, creating a hypo-
metabolic response, so that the body can repair itself. Deep relaxation techniques with a
singing bowl will be demonstrated.

10:00 am: Maintaining Healthy Boundaries for Energy Workers
Sound is a powerful tool and like any healing modality, has the ability to trigger strong
intense emotions, memories, or experiences in people. This session will focus on supporting
clients who are experiencing difficult, strong, and/or distressing responses during a sound and
healing session. This class will cover a definition of what boundaries are; how to recognize
when the client is beginning to have difficulty; maintaining healthy boundaries for both the
practitioner and client; recognizing the crisis point; steps to take to de-escalate the client; and
the importance of having good pre-screenings tools to avoid problems.

Learning Outcomes: Students will be able to explain how to best support a client who is
undergoing a catharsis, explain the detrimental effect of “giving advice”, and be able to
differentiate between sound and healing vs. counseling a client. Students will be able to
identify when to refer clients to trained professional counselors and not to undertake
counseling clients.
Instructor: Kathryn Rambo, MT

11:00 am: Assignment of Physical, Emotional, and Spiritual Healing Case Scenarios
Students will be divided into groups and assigned a healing case scenario to work on as a
group activity. One scenario will be assigned to each group. The scenarios assigned will be
a Spiritual Healing, Emotional Healing, or Physical Healing case study. Each Group will work
together to create a written document that discusses the case, making recommendations for
the appropriate sound treatment related to their case. Students will work together to discuss
deeper insights that might not be obvious at first glance, but might be pertinent to the
formalization of a treatment protocol.
Students will then develop a protocol to be used during
