In 2011 Sage Academy of Sound, located in Woodstock NY, created the 1st annual SoundHealing retreat intensive at Menla. After directly experiencing the healing benefits of sound, and dedicated to sharing this with others, the founders created a platform that would give sound pioneers a beautiful environment to share their knowledge, rest and explore. Thirteen years later, this program, led by Sage Academy director & founder, Lea Garnier, continues to inspire many on the healing path of vibrational medicine.The world’s foremost experts in the art and science of SoundHealing will come together to immerse retreat participants in the sacred power of sound. Under the guidance of these remarkable scholars, doctors, healers, and sound practitioners, students will explore the healing potential of Tuning Forks, Crystal Bowls and Pyramids, Tibetan Bowls, Sacred Gongs and Bells, Voice, Drums, Conch, Flutes and other sacred sound instruments. Participants will learn the therapeutic application of sound tools to create sacred space, shift and expand consciousness, address a range of physical conditions, restore balance, and promote positive change at the cellular level.Featuring: sound pioneer Silvia Nakkach, with Lea Garnier, Angell Deer, Katya Varlamova, Scott Williams & special guestsFull program description here: https://sageacademyofsound.com/2024summersoundhealingintensive.  Please make sure to check Sage's website for more information.Note: There are four other SoundHealing trainings/intensives offered at Menla via Sage Academy, if the timing does not allow this one.
