Acutonics® Elective: Sound Journeys

In this class, we introduce all of the sound healing instruments we use to create a therapeutic sound journey. We look at how we can weave our tools together. How to listen to our inner knowing to help guide our choices of when to add an instrument. We will explore drumming to invoke trance states and deep journey work.

We introduce the Acutonics® planetary hand chimes and how they provide powerful ways to invoke planetary archetypes and their intervallic personalities. The chimes are a great way to set an intention for the journey theme. 

We will collaborate and create a sound journey from beginning to middle through the end. Students create and present their sound healing journey to the group.   

I recommend a USB microphone to get the best experience from this class.

Learning Objectives:

Participants will be able to:
Demonstrate confidence in creating a therapeutic sound journey.
Demonstrate aesthetic sensibility and its importance in the healing journey.
Listen to inner guidance, and the subtle messages that lead us in choosing the next instrument or when to place a crescendo.
Importance of adding textures and layering our sound tools to create a dimensional experience for the listener.
