Sound Therapy Trainings

OPEN TO 11 NEW STUDENTS Per YEAR
Sonic Theology: Sound Therapy Certification Training in 2 Modules

Sonic Theology is the only college level program in North America and Europe focused on Spiritual Harmonic Knowledge. Unlike other programs that teach from an ‘instrument based’ approach; Sonic Theology focuses on the student as being the ‘instrument that requires tuning’. This integrated method insures that whatever sound instrument you are using, you will possess the knowledge and wisdom to use it therapeutically. For the student that has a high interest and desire to learn about Sound Therapy, finding an established and credible curriculum to engage can be a intimidating task. 


First Module: Metaphysics

MODULE 1- METAPHYSICS

Next Metaphysics will take place online in March 2024. 

First Module: Metaphysics (online)

Metaphysics is everything missing from all sound healing programs presented in the West, and may very well be the most thorough historical investigation on the subject ever presented. It is also the only program that offers a re-examination of the history of Sound from a matrifocal perspective, showing the limitations of a biased patriarcal model of history on our understanding of the role of Sound, Trance and Dance in healing, spirituality, philosophy and the very basis of our human culture.

Don’t be fooled into thinking that the western model of Sound Therapy is important, because it is based on much older systems outside the Greek model. Discover what Pythagoras brought to Crotana from India, why is the House of Wisdom important, follow the thread from Gobustan to Anatolia, and discover ancient systems that are useful today. While Europe was under the grips of the Dark Ages, the Golden Chain of the Pythagorean philosophers extended into central Asia. Entire secretive organizations flourished who understood the curative ability that sound and music has on us.

This program explains everything, to the point, that you will feel you have previously been taught nothing. This story begins in pre-“his”tory, and looks at matriarchal and patriarchal lines. Unless YOU change, YOU cannot change others. This is a serious academic examination, that has been cultivated over 4 decades of research, field studies, and direct experience. This program is limited to just 11 new students to insure an intimate learning environment and proper transmission.

Gong Camp USA

The 9Ways Gong Camp is an acoustical laboratory of all the worlds Gong Cultures including Artisan Gongs which are the backbone of this intensive, led by numerous teachers who are shaping Gong Culture today. Focused on elevating skill set and instilling confidence, coupled with an academic and historical philosophy perfumed with what the Indonesians call “preserving the beauty of the world.” Gong culture extends from the late Bronze Age to the world wide phenomenon of Gongs permeating modern culture today.

Expect to learn everything Gong – from Stands and Mallets to the levels and degrees to Gong play. You’re learning to play a musical instrument, and a very unusual musical instrument at that, which dictates it’s own unique style of play that is not focused on rhythm and melody but the creation of ambient soundscapes and the dissolution of Time.

Days and nights are filled not only with exercises, but power points regarding the science and history, the examination of the cultures who have centuries of Gong use, live performances by visiting Gong artists, and many specialized workshops where the Gong is taking a central role in Yoga, live performance, and Sound Healing.

No Dogma, no one saying buy this or that, and no schemes to bypass mastering Gong skills.
