The Power of Sound Healing

Level I - Introduction to Sound Healing

taught by
Lama Brian Hilliard & Shannon van Staden

Putting Theory into Practice

Join our two-day training in the theoretical, practical and spiritual aspects of sound healing. The training begins with the theory and practical instructions on how to play Alchemy Crystal Singing Bowls® and how to care for your bowls. This is followed by a deep dive into healing practices that combine the sounds of singing bowls with the profound methods of mantra, visualisation, samadhi and pure intention.

The Practice of Crystal Sound Healing

You will learn five extraordinary healing practices which effectively use the bowls for oneself, friends & family, clients, students and the greater environment. It is a full immersion into The Practice of Crystal Sound Healing. The practice emphasises the personal intention to shift and transform problems of sickness, anxiety, fear, loss, broken heart, and all the daily challenges we face. The result is the discovery of an inspiring new healing modality. You can then deepen and expand healing wherever it is needed. The weekend is an exciting and inspiring entrance into the universe of expanding pure intention with crystal sound.

Vibration, Mantra, Visualization, Meditation

At the core of the training is the Healing Practice which combines singing the sound of seed syllables, pure crystal sound vibration you create from the Alchemy Crystal Bowls, visualisations, intention and the samadhi of deeply resting. In this way, you tune in completely to your own power of healing. The practice is accessible to anyone who desires well-being, transformation or increased ability to work with others.

The practice is accessible to anyone who desires more well-being, transformation or increased ability to work with others : therapists, physicians, yoga teachers and healers. We will approach the practice according to our own capabilities of learning, and the environment will be open and spacious and lots of room for humour.

What I found most inspiring was the perfect blend of sound healing practices and the wisdom of the meditation practices that were shared for the benefit of self and others.  I am most grateful for that. Thank you for holding such a beautiful and inspiring space for us all this weekend. Pure magic! – Magali, A., 2021

It was a pleasure to be in your presence and to receive the initiation into crystal bowl sound healing.  I realize at a deeper level the delicate preciousness of each and every moment of movement, words and presence. Very powerful. I felt energized and clear headed. Now I am more curious about sounds …  and ‘tuning in’ . – Katrin D., 2021

I was surprised about the effect sound has on our lives and well being – and on so many levels, and  that there are Buddhist as well as scientific explanations to this. I realise the importance of how I feel when I play and what I can convey to others. It cannot be done lightly. There is so much more than just beautiful music and relaxation. I will be careful and mindful when I play for others. This weekend helped me understand why I am drawn to crystal bowls and how we are connected.  Thank you. – Anna, I., 2021

I was inspired by the complexity of the effects of the sound frequencies and the amazing potential of the bowls. The passion and compassion with which this weekend was filled and the knowledge shared was truly inspiring! – Isa, S., 2021

What I found most inspiring was the constant reminder that each of us has love, joy, bliss and perfection within.  It is already there and always has been and all we need to know is how to tune in and find it.  It is very comforting to be reminded that you are already whole.  Thank you 🙂 – Mateja, A., 2021

I love the practice of combining the bowls with chanting. Chanting works really well for me and has a profound effect on my mind, body, mood, energy level etc. – Jolien, L., 2021

I was able to deepen the knowledge and connection with the singing bowls. To feel the vibration of each of the chakras and seeing the colours was absolutely amazing!  Thank you Shannon and Brian! – Jiayi, M., 2021
