Learn how Tibetan (or Himalayan) singing bowls may be used on or off the body to induce deep relaxation and relieve physical and emotional pain. Singing bowls have the physiological effect of balancing the right and left hemispheres of the brain, inducing a meditative state, engaging the parasympathetic nervous system and increasing the production of melatonin and seratonin. Tibetan singing bowls have been found to be helpful in dealing with the effects of chemotherapy, as well as depression, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia and other stress-related autoimmune disorders. You will learn how to effectively integrate these ancient sound healing tools into both your personal practice, and/or your professional healing practice.

HYDROSONIC THERAPY- The Beneficial Applications of Sound and Water
12 hands-on classroom CEUs for FL LMTs- CE Broker tracking #: 20-608581
In this workshop you will be introduced to two different modalities- Aquatic Therapy and Himalayan Singing Bowls- which, when combined, have a powerful effect on the recipient. We will explore the synergistic relationship between water, sound waves and the physical body. It has been well documented that simply floating in water, especially when supported either by flotation devices or a therapist, facilitates muscle relaxation and increases peripheral circulation. The reduction of gravitational forces allows deep relaxation and quiets the sympathetic nervous system, slowing the pulse and the heart rate and stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system.

The sonorous resonance of Himalayan singing bowls create the perfect combination of tones and frequencies to balance the right and left hemispheres of the brain. They also produce a “beat frequency” which entrains the brainwaves to a deep theta state associated with deep relaxation and meditation. The frequencies of the bowls stimulate the release of endorphins and endocannabinoids, boosting the immune system and providing relief from physical and emotional pain and trauma.

When a person is floating in water and the bowls are played in the water at the same time there is an even more powerful response. Sound travels 2-5 times more quickly through water and because the body is 60-70% water and is close to the same density and elasticity it feels more of the sound. These factors combine to offer a profound experience of deep relaxation, pain relief, improved mobility, release of trauma that has been stored in the body, emotional integration and deep meditation.

INTRODUCTION TO HEALING WITH TONING, TUNING FORKS, AND TIBETAN BOWLS
6 hands-on classroom CEUs for FL LMTs- CE Broker Tracking #20-512847
Sound vibration is a marvelous and simple way of re-tuning the body, restoring balance and harmony. The voice is a built-in tool for healing and transformation. Through Vocal Toning we can energize and balance the chakras and the physical body. Tuning forks help re-balance the nervous system, manage pain, activate the parasympathetic nervous system, and enhance the relaxation response. The combination of tones from Tibetan Singing Bowls balance the right and left hemispheres of the brain, facilitating states of deep relaxation and meditation creating an ideal environment for deep healing on all levels. In this introductory level workshop you will experience the benefits of these tools and learn how they can be used for personal growth and transformation as well as how they can be incorporated into any type of a healing practice.

Tuning forks and Tibetan Singing Bowls will be available for use and purchase at the workshop. Please wear loose comfortable clothing.

SANSKRIT SEED SOUNDS, MANTRAS AND KIRTAN: A Two-Part Workshop on the Architecture of Mantras and Kirtan
The 50 seed sounds, or bijas, that make up the sacred Sanskrit alphabet are the building blocks to all mantras. Mantras are the foundation of kirtan, the devotional call-and-response chanting which is one of the primary practices of bhakti yoga, the path to union with God by way of the heart.

Sanskrit is an energetic language. Each bija carries its own particular and specific vibrational quality. Through chanting the bijas, either by themselves or combined as mantras, these qualities within us are imbued and strengthened. When we chant the names of the many names of God in Sanskrit, we are actually vibrating the essential qualities of that deity within ourselves. This is the real power of chanting and what makes it such a powerful practice.

Both days will begin by chanting the Sanskrit alphabet- the “varnamala”, or garland of letters- which stimulates and balances the 7 major chakras, all areas of the brain, and the 72,000 nadis (subtle energy channels) that run through the body. You will also learn the primary seed sound of each chakra. From here we will begin to understand the sounds and vibratory essence that form simple mantras. And finally, put these mantras together with melody for our kirtan, celebrating the Divine. We will have 60 minutes for kirtan at the end of each session.
