Intro to Sacred Sound And Voice and the Multi-instrumental Sound Journey Pt.1– Sound Healing Training (Module 1)

As far back as pre-history, all over the world, people have awakened the sacred power of sound, vibration, and intention in order to heal, transform, connect, and manifest using vibrational sacred practices.
There are numerous instruments found across cultures, reflecting a common language of sound beyond the traditions and beliefs they derive from. Many sacred instruments were created to harness and play with various vibrations, permeate layers of reality, and bring musician and listener alike into states of deep healing and spiritual unity.
This immersion/sound healing training course is an experiential and learning journey into the world of sacred sound, voice and vibration and a pre-requisite for practitioners who wish to offer group and individual multi-instrumental and voice sessions.
The breadth and depth of this world is as infinite as the spectrum of vibrations themselves; ranging from precise and reproducible patterns to completely organic and natural sounds of the inner realm. Sounds we can hear and sounds that are so subtle that they can only be heard by the most peaceful hearts and quietest minds. In these sounds, we find the hidden messages of nature and the truths about the nature of reality itself. Connecting with the unified vibrational field that undercurrents the whole universe is a conversation with divinity and life itself.
In the days we have together, we will be exploring a tapestry of traditional sound healing and vocal practice methods as well as being supported in discovering and cultivating our own unique inner vibrational frequencies.
Supported by modern scientific discoveries as well as the ancient wisdom passed down through lineages, we will experience and practice offering a variety of different sound and voice techniques that are primarily Chinese Medicine based, in the module 1 Sound Healing Training course.
It is our hope to share this sacred sound practices and sound healing training so that it may be incorporated into the lives and sound offerings of the participants; the transformative effects of which will ripple through and bring positive shifts and heightened sensitivity to all different facets of life.
ABOUT THE MODULE 1 COURSES and MULTI-INSTRUMENTAL SOUND HEALING TRAINING In this Bali-based training we learn the basics to explore the full breadth of natural sound from Shamanic to Celestial and beyond to enhance the awareness and prepare a future practitioner with a comprehensive and clear system. Drawing from a vast body of training including Sound healing at the Tama-do Academy, a year-long Shamanic apprenticeship, close to 200 public and private group sessions every year, leadership of the Bali Sound Healers Collective and a love of Sufi devotional singing (ZIKR) and sacred chants from different sacred world traditions, Shervin will offer his teachings, training and techniques through:

PRIOR SACRED SOUND AND SONG TRAINING at the yoga barn, FEB, 2019
Energetic approach to the Immersions and Sound Healing Training
We share a deep love of Sacred Sound, the voice, and the facilitation of sound healing and devotional singing.
Our philosophy is that each human being and spirit contains the spark of the infinite, a ripple in the divine ocean; and thus we all have within us the wisdom of the entire universe.
We are connected to each other through invisible strings and our vibrations all play with one another on the surface and deeper levels of reality.
Working with sound sends vibrations deep inside, stirring up and allowing the release of long-held patterns and energies collected throughout our entire lives (and perhaps memories locked in the DNA). In order for these energies to be expressed, acknowledged, given space to be loved and allowed to move on, we maintain a vibration of unconditional love and acceptance, as well as the intention that all is divinely supported.
There is an unspeakable magic and unity when Sacred Sound is explored with a group of like-minded and open practitioners. The separate energies and vibrations harmonize into one allowing each participant to transcend individual consciousness and merge with the whole, uplifting one another into higher states of bliss and Spiritual connection.
We will create a safe and supportive environment for practical learning and heart-centred expression. In this space students will feel nourished and held through their energetic processes allowing us all to dive deeper into the experiential practices of connecting to sacred sound through the divine human instrument.
This Sacred Sound and Voice training immersion is unlike any other because it draws together the complementary practices of Sound Healing, Nada Yoga (Yoga of sound), and devotional song, skillfully guided with uplifting and compassionate energy by two professional instructors with a rich depth of experience.
