Shamanic Sound Medicine: Traveling the Spirit Vision Path With the Magic & Mystery of Sound
Rich Goodhart discusses that sound and music are universal pathways to spiritual/soul sources. The art of applying them consciously is one of the most powerful tools available to an energy healer. Shamanic sound healing is a potent form of energy medicine that can effectively transform our mindbody states, bringing a new awareness and real healing attunement. In today's talk, we will explore some of the many dimensions of this very rich and vital healing modality experience.
In this session, you’ll discover:
- How to navigate alternate landscapes of sound and music as alive, communicating, interactive consciousness energy maps
- The importance of self-cultivation and personal attunement to the transmission of energy medicine in a sound healing practice
- Sonic discernment and the value of informed perspectives on frequencyism/numbers games prevalent in the sound healing scene
