Welcome Message From Your Series Hosts

With Alec Sims & Phyllis Anne Douglass

Alec Sims: Welcome. Thank you for registering for the 2022 Sound Healing Summit series here on The Shift Network. We're excited to have you with us to take this 5-day journey on the sound current.
Phyllis Anne Douglass:
Yes, and welcome. I'm Phyllis Anne Douglass, and along with cohost Christine Stevens, we are so excited to share this series with you this year, featuring a generous number of sound healing practitioners, teachers, researchers, and musicians from all over the world who are coming here to share their practices with you.

Alec: Yeah, so many great sessions coming your way. And just to name a few, we'll have Andi and Jonathan Goldman sharing the foundations of sound as a healing modality. We'll have Chloë Goodchild discussing the power of the voice and how you can open up and discover the power of your own soul voice. And also acoustic scientist John Stuart Reid will be sharing the latest leading-edge research related to sound and music medicine.

Phyllis: And we're so happy to share all of this with you and to have all of you on board, and this is going to be an exciting adventure.

Alec: Yes, and all the teachers and speakers are here to share their wisdom experience. I always like to note that the most important participant is you, as your energy and attention and presence is what really makes these events come to life. And as you listen to the sessions, note that we are all connected in this expanding global community of sound, and know that you make a difference, and we can make a difference with our sounds. So welcome aboard. Enjoy. And we'll see you in the sessions.
