Sound Transforms Consciousness

Zacciah Blackburn 
Zacciah Blackburn, PhD, in these powerful sound healing programs

Programs are conducted worldwide.

"Whatever one's beliefs, we all know the power of the spoken word, of music, of chants and sung melodies, can move us into ecstatic states of rapture or deep states of despair.  There is an inherent potency to the very nature of the sound itself, and its emotional content, which can be amplified or enhanced by the spoken or sung verse.  While so much music in western culture has moved more into the secular arenas of entertainment, music in many cultures has historically held a deeply sacred space in the hearts and minds of their peoples, used as a catalyst to deeper insight, wisdom, transformation, or growth.

Sound itself has an inherent transformative power.  Sound is attuned to the creative matrix of the universe.  By coupling sound, or music, with pure intention, to attune to, invoke, or transform one's consciousness, we indeed have stepped into a powerful place.

Sound Healing is the intentional use of sound to create an environment which becomes a catalyst for healing in the physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual aspects of our being. 
To become "healed," simply means to become "whole."" - Zacciah Blackburn, PhD
