The Fundamental Principles Of SoundHealing from the Ancient Shamanic Tradition to New Science Followed by Tuning Fork Studies

With John Beaulieu, ND, PhD and Lea Garnier

May 19 - 21, 2023


The Certification program is spread over 3 weekend intensives equaling 100 hours of training with pioneers who will show you how to utilize a variety of Sound Healing techniques for your own practice as a SoundHealer. With a certificate from Sage Academy of Sound, students will be better equipped to serve as practitioners, specialists, volunteers, interns, or even as members of a multidisciplinary treatment team within a health center or a community agency, as well as in a private healing or counseling practice.

We believe that the only way to truly absorb the teachings is by total immersion and abundant practice time. The retreat style setting limits outside distraction and enhances the deep focus needed for personal healing to occur, which in turn clears the way for the teachings to be experienced and deeply retained.

Areas of study in this Module:

Shamanic Sound Healing Instruments

  • The science behind Shamanistic Sound Frequencies
  • Journeying w/sacred sound

Principles of SoundHealing

  • The Healing

Power of Musical Intervals

  • The natural flow of sound energy

Tuning Fork Studies

  • Presentation of the different type of tuning forks and their best use
  • Everybody will have a hands on opportunity to practice a tuning fork protocol
  • Finding the best way to easily integrate the tuning forks into your life and professional practice enhances therapeutic outcome
  • A clinical session based on how to use the tuning forks in a private session
  • A clinical session based on how to use the tuning forks in a Sound Bath

Please note that each module can be taken independently for a Certificate of Attendance. However, to receive 100 hours of certification, you must take all three modules of the training certification program which are:
