About Sound Practitioner Training

Sound Practitioner Training is designed for both teachers and students who would like to begin using sound in public or private settings, or for those who are simply drawn to sound and wish to learn more. Sound Therapy and Sound Meditation (also sometimes called Sound Healing) are a range of practices used to bring about physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual changes using sound. Participants will learn the fundamentals of Sound Meditation and Sound Therapy and learn to deliver public and private sound sessions. Yoga and meditation teachers will learn how to incorporate sound therapy and guided meditation into their classes.

Participants in this training receive Certification as a Sound Practitioner (Level I). Yoga Alliance teachers receive 25-hours of Yoga Alliance CEUs.

Trance Dance & Cacao Ceremony

Trance dance is a traditional shamanic healing technique that draws on percussive rhythms combined with breath work, entrancing sounds and the use of blindfolds to take participants on an embodied psycho-spiritual journey into deep states of consciousness. The experience, led by Kari Levine and Hamid Jabbar, will begin with setting the sacred space, where ceremonial cacao will be served. This traditional medicine facilitates greater access to heart-centered intuition and connection to the spiritual realm. During the dance, participants are encouraged to move without inhibition in any way the music and energy of the space guides them. Facilitators will safely guide participants into ecstatic states of consciousness where deep physical and emotional healing, as well as spiritual insights, can occur.


Transcendental Sound Journey


Join Hamid Jabbar and Jill Honeywell for a 2 hour transcendental sound journey. Explore altered states of awareness, deep meditation, and relaxation using guided meditation, breathwork, and sound. This experience will take participants through an extended sound meditation journey that begins with opening of sacred space, setting of intentions, gentle movements, and deep breathwork. The class progresses into a full sound journey with gongs, bowls, vocalization, flutes, percussion, and other traditional instruments. This practice revitalizes the body and provides access to deep states of meditation and awareness. Participants will be laying down for the majority of the class, so it’s best to wear warmer clothing.
