Sacred Sound Workshops
& Immersions for Teachers
Experience sacred sound and mantra to deeply nourish your practice. The Sacred Sound Introduction is for anyone to attend. The Teacher Training is for yoga and meditation teachers who want to integrated sound practices into their teaching.
We will explore mantra and chanting as a way to deepen our breath, focus our minds and open our hearts. The use of sound can release and transform emotional and mental holding to create space for a deeper beingness to permeate us. Sound practices are a perfect bridge into meditation and into a deeper inner inquiry and self-exploration.
Practices will range from simple humming practices to beautiful Sanskrit prayers, and will include both contemporary and traditional practices. These practices can be included within any yoga or meditation style or tradition.
In the teacher immersion, we will place the practices in a theoretical framework exploring four sound traditions: vedic, tantric, bhakti and nada yoga. This framework is especially useful to help place any sound practice in context and to enhance our understanding of the deep purpose behind these practices. We will also explore how these practices can be integrated into yoga and meditation teaching.
We will be exploring sound as practice, not performance, so rusty voices are very welcome. This workshop is suitable for both beginner and experienced students of mantra yoga. The practices are easy to learn and to teach even without any previous musical experience.
“To sing is not enough. We must tap the powers that lie beneath the consciousness of the song. The song leads down to the chant, the chant leads down to the tone, the tone leads down to the breath and the breath leads to the energy beneath the sound – the roar of silence.” Don Campbell
All participants will receive a Sacred Sound Training Manual. This workshop earns 6.5 CPD points for Yoga Australia members.
Please note: It is highly recommended that you attend the Sacred Sound Introduction before attending the Teacher Training Immersion. If you are a teacher and have done a Sacred Sound Immersion or Course with me in the past, the practices we explored then are now included in the Sacred Sound Introduction, so you can then attend the Teacher Training Immersion, to explore new practices.
