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 Desig-
nations in Sound Therapy – the study of the effect of sound on human beings physiologically, psychologically, emotionally 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.


The School of Sound and Healing is offering a fast-track program for 2020 that will allow students to earn a Certificate as a Sound Practitioner for

WEEKEND I


SOUND HEALING WEEKEND I CLASS DESCRIPTIONS


WEEKEND # 1: FEBRUARY

FRIDAY EVENING FROM 6-8 PM
Fundamentals Weekend: Mandatory for all students

6:00pm: Student Orientation:
There will be an orientation for students covering the curriculum, discussion of course require-
ments, required student projects, recommended reading, general expectations as well as
introductions to the faculty and fellow students.

SATURDAY

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.
Kathryn Rambo Instructor

11:00 am: 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, 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 MTLunch: 11:45 am -12:15 pm12:15 pm: Anatomy of the Subtle Body
This course focuses on providing students information about the different fields of Energy that
make up the Subtle Body including the Chakras, Meridians and Auric Field.

Learning Outcomes: Students have a basic understanding and working knowledge of the aura, chakras and meridians and how Frequency and Sound affects these areas.
Sheri Bauer, Instructor

12:45 pm: Manifesting with Intention
Intention can be defined as “the projection of awareness, with purpose and efficacy, toward
some object or outcome.” This class will teach students how to measure the strength of the
human energy field. 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 other’s healing.

Learning Outcomes: Students will 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.
Instructors: 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 indivi-
dual 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.
Gail Sauter MSW Instructor


5:00 pm: Questions/Answers about days activities and Closing Meditation



SUNDAY

10: 00 am: Sound Fundamentals
This course focuses on the structure, physics, and elements of sound and music. Course 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.
Kathryn Rambo MT Instructor

11:00 am: Creating Sacred Space using Sound Instruments and Space Clearing Tools with
Demonstration

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 plus guests.

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 (Tuning Forks) and April (Tibetan Singing Bowls).
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 instru-
ments, 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 and 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, Kathryn Rambo

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), and how tingshas have been used throughout time in ritual, meditation, and to clear
the energy field. 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

2:45 pm: Using Crystals in a Sound Healing Session
Crystals and stones are a wonderful compliment to sound and healing. Stones have been used
for eons to bring needed additional energy to help balance the body, mind, and spirit. Sound,
our bodies, as well as stones and crystals all have energetic vibrations and frequencies. Used together in a sound session: sound, stones and crystals help the recipient of the sound session to
be naturally more receptive, re-harmonizing them, as well as facilitating a free flow of energy
throughout the body, mind and spirit. Students will observe demonstrations on how to incorporate
crystals and stones with the use of sound during an energy session using quartz crystals and other
easily obtainable stones. A demonstration that incorporates smoky quartz crystal and sound to
reduce pain will also be included in this session.

SUNDAY


10: 00 am: Tibetan Singing Bowl, Deep Relaxation, Stress, and Changes in Genetic Expression
for Stress

According to the National Institutes 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 and leading,
ultimately, to the manifestation of 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 that has the potential to change one’s genetic expression of stress, so that
the body can repair itself. Deep relaxation techniques with a singing bowl will be demonstrated.

10:30 am: Tibetan Singing Bowl Deep Relaxation and Stress Reduction Student Experiential
Students will work in pairs, practicing the protocol introduced in the lecture/demonstration class.

Lunch: 12(Noon) – 12:30 pm


12:30 pm: Tibetan Singing Bowl Stress Triangle Lecture and Demonstration

Shoulder and neck tension and the resulting pain are common complaints for many people.
Students will learn how to use one singing bowl to help the client relax and reduce stress related
pain in the shoulders and neck areas. Students will learn how stress plays a role in tightness in the
neck and shoulders as well as several relaxation techniques to help clients develop a better
proprioception of when they are unconsciously tightening those areas of the body. Students will
learn the role the fascia system has in tension in these areas.

1:15 pm: Tibetan Singing Bowl Stress Triangle Student Experiential
Working in pairs students will be able to practice using a Tibetan singing bowl directly on the
neck and shoulder area to reduce tension. Learning Outcomes: Students will be able to identify
the muscles that are involved in neck and shoulder stress. Students will be able to explain the role
the fascia system plays in the sensation of pain. Students will be able to use the singing bowl on
the shoulders and upper back to reduce fascia restrictions and muscle tension.

WEEKEND IV


SOUND HEALING WEEKEND IV CLASS DESCRIPTIONS


WEENEND #4: MAY
ADVANCED PROTOCOLS AND PRESENTATION OF HEALING SCENARIOS

Attendance and the completions of Course requirements is mandatory for students seeking a
full Certificate in Sound Healing.

FRIDAY EVENING

6:00 pm: The Sound Healing Practices of the Aboriginal Peoples of Australia

This class highlights the Didgeridoo, its healing properties and practices. The Aboriginal people
of Australia are the first known culture to heal with sound. Their ‘yidaki' (modern name, didgeridoo)
has been used as a healing tool for at least 40,000 years. The Aborigines healed broken bones,
muscle tears, and illnesses of every kind using this enigmatic musical instrument. Included in this
segment will be a brief history of the Aboriginal Culture and uses of Sound, and a demonstration
and experience using the Didgeridoo.

Learning Outcomes: Students will be able to discuss the use of the didgeridoo by the Aboriginal
peoples of Australia, and their personal experience of the didgeridoo as the instructor demon-
strates how the instrument was and is currently used for healing. Students will be able to describe
the basic playing techniques of the didgeridoo, how the drone is produced, and how other sounds
are made by controlling the throat, tongue, and cheek muscles, plus adding one’s voice.
Jeoffrey Hutcherson, Instructor

SATURDAY


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 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 under-
going 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.
Kathryn Rambo, MT Instructor.

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 diagrams their case and offers deeper insights that might not be
obvious at first glance, and diagrams a protocol that would be most effective, in their opinion, in
a treatment room situation. Students will then develop a protocol to be used during a simulated
treatment session to be delivered to the greater group at large.

Students will demonstrate how they would approach a treatment session to assist with the
particular area of dissonance. Each group will be given 30 minutes to present their written
assessment and demonstrate their protocol. Incorporated into the presentation can be a
discussion with the client, an energy clearing, the treatment, and the follow up.

LUNCH 12:00-12:30 pm (This can be a working lunch, if necessary.)

MIRACLES ARE HAPPENING EVERY DAY IN THE WORLD OF SOUND AND HEALING
By: Sheri Bauer, MSP, RMT, CRMT

Miracles are happening every day in the world of Sound and Healing. Frequency based therapies using Tibetan bowls, crystal bowls, tuning forks,
drums, didgeridoos along with humming and voice protocols that are be used by sound practitioners around the globe are now currently being
introduced in many Integrative Therapy departments of hospitals in large cities across the country.

One might ask, “How can Sound Frequencies actually heal?” Many of us have attended a Music concert or a Sound Bath where we were exposed
to the sounds frequencies of one or multiple instruments. Attending a Sound Concert, or purchasing just one sound instrument such as a Tibetan or
Crystal bowl, can change the way you feel within minutes. According to David Gibson of the Sound Healing Institute in San Francisco, “these
instruments are able to create a stable and coherent vibration in the body, mind and emotions, which overcome the chaotic vibrations of fear,
anxiety, depression, and pain and entrain the system into a state of peace and stillness. Consistent tones are the basis of all sound healing.”

The end result of using sound as an instrument of healing is balance. Your body, mind and spirit become calm. In this place of peace, you return to
internal and external harmony. According to Gibson, “Research has shown that when someone is at peace, the entire immune system flourishes, and
all organs go into alignment. In actuality, the body is given space, free from tension to heal on its own.”

It is my belief that we are on the cusp of a whole new healing revolution beginning to take place. I would venture as far as to say that within 20 years,
sound frequencies might be at the center of most of the curative work happening in the U.S., if not the entire world. One of the most current videos
that drive the importance of sound frequency healing home is a Ted Talk video by Anthony Holland that shows 4 types of cancer being destroyed by
sound frequencies. Check out this informative YouTube video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1w0_kazbb_U)

What many people might not know is that there have been pioneers in the field of sound healing that have made major discoveries along the way.
Sadly, much of the information about their work is in short supply or has been completely buried. Almost 80 years ago a man named Royal Raymond
Rife invented a machine that destroyed viruses and cancer cells. Even though his work was scientifically validated and supported by his peers, his life
was destroyed along with his equipment. Rife is considered to be the forerunner in the area of sound frequency healing. Learn a little more about
Rife by following this YouTube video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MYqOidE5aGo&list=PLWMK6RI8mV4rdHhvXipI52KsfgXcUQsZW

In this new age of frequency healing, the use of sound is becoming more and more common. Within Allopathic medicine, Tuning forks are being used
to assist the body in overcoming pain; doctors are investigating sound in their search for help to tame the opioid crisis, anxiety, and Parkinson’s
disease. All of these techniques are mostly based on activating the body’s natural healing response.

WHY STUDY SOUND AND HEALING?
Sound Healing is an ideal tool for your personal wellness journey. You will be able to enrich your meditation practices, calm racing thoughts, release
stress, give voice to emotions, and gain tools to raise your consciousness.
    • Find a new career path: Become a Sound Practitioner/Therapist
