Continuing our Advanced Study Series
of Heaven and Earth:

Embracing the Living Wisdom, Love,
and Compassion
of the Divine Feminine
                          at the Heart of Creation

    Entering the Deep Mysteries of Her Being, and Essence
Receiving Her Gifts and Blessings
Honoring Her, in All of Her Forms
As the Source Point of Life


What is your relationship with Her?
How does she reveal Herself to you?
How can we deepen these, and integrate it in our lives?
Gratitude for the watersEnding with a Sacred
World Sound Healing Ceremony
with our Collective Voices, Prayers,  Intentions, and Drums
Seeding our BLESSINGS into
Grandfather Ceremonial PowWow Drums
These ceremonies are performed with waters from sacred wells,
springs, and sacred sites of the Earth, as well as from the springs and rivers of your home town.  
Bring your Waters.
Your drum or rattle,
and, your song
Vitalizing these sacred waters
with our prayers and blessings,
and carrying them home,
to share with the world, where ever we see fit.
It is time that we each invoke, and step into our power as world healers, light gatherers, and emanators of the true essence of our being.  There is perhaps no better opportunity than gathering in community and small groups wherever we live, joining in heart, rhythm, and song, and seeding our prayers of healing for all humanity, for all beings, for the Whole Earth, during these times of profound transformation.  Our prayers, intent, and song, have powerful impact when joined in unified chorus.  Master teachers and sacred sound channels Zacciah and Dorothy will guide us in deep, direct, and rich community blessings of the waters of the Earth, that we each have the opportunity to carry back to our own communities with which to bless the Earth.  The work of Dr. Masaru Emoto and others carefully discloses to us the impact of our prayers and song upon the waters of the world.

Our Program Facilitators
Zacciah Blackburn, PhD, Director, the Center of Light Institute of Sound Healing and Shamanic StudiesZacciah  Blackburn is a gifted intuitive, teacher, and sound healer trained in classical healing and shamanic traditions, and sacred sound cultures, and is practicing in Ascutney, VT, at the Center of Light, which he founded.   Zacciah utilizes sound coupled with Sacred Intention, as  a therapeutic tool, for personal growth and transformation.  Zacciah is a Co-Director, and Director of Education for the International Sound Healing Network (SHN), formerly known as the New England Sound Healing Research Institute (NESHRI,) a worldwide community of healing practitioners broadening the awareness of sound healing through networking, education, and scientific research.  He is also co-founder & Director of the World Sound Healing Organization, and the All One Now Network of organizations furthering world peace, healing, and transformation of human consciousness through simple ceremony, broadcast live via the internet.  And, Zacciah was a Founding Board Member, in the formation and evolution of the former Sound and Music Alliance, a professional association of practitioners, educators, researchers, product makers, schools and organizations, dedicated to the use of the transformative power of sound and music throughout the full spectrum of life cycles. 

Zacciah has created a broad range of trainings in sound healing practice, which couples his deep cognitive and intuitive understanding of s
ound in therapeutic application.   These programs are an in depth study of the nature of sound and its healing effect on the human system, with cognitive and experiential training designed to better our understanding of, and therapeutic application in, the use of sound.

General program information
Advanced Work In The Nature Of Consciousness and Healing
Working with the Classic Principles of Healing and Self-Realization

Each Advanced Level Gathering will take us deeper into these tiers of understanding, and realms of conscious being.
Those requesting registration may be required to submit a brief outline of their background in  meditation, healing and wellness practices.

Drawing from Wisdom Schools and Indigenous Earth Mystery traditions of the world, the mythic carriers of wisdom in the subtle worlds, and the inherent wisdom that arises from the realized states, Zacciah will skillfully guide us through preliminary and advanced understanding of the nature of healing and self-realization. 

Inquiry into the nature of Self and its relationship with the living Cosmos, is inherent to the nature of embodied human existence, and is tempered in all traditional wisdom schools on this planet.   We shall enter heightened states of awareness to draw from our own innate nature and wisdom, through guided meditations and sacred sound transmissions. 

Self-knowing, Self-empowerment, and the claiming of our Divine Nature are integral to the process of Healing and Self Realization. 
We will be offered gateways to rich understanding and experiential awareness of the vastness of our Self and its integral connection to the Whole. 

The Temple of the Self is one with the Temple of the Cosmos.
We need only understand it, experience it, and accept it as an integral, living companion within our daily lives.  The hardships and suffering which we tend to persist in identifying with, in our daily lives, is dissolved through these states of realization.  But, direct intervention for dissolution of these states, is also offered within this practice.

Zacciah accepts appointments for individual healing work or training in sound healing therapies.  This work is an eclectic blend of spiritual counseling and shamanic and sacred sound therapy, designed to help one connect with inner guidance and spiritual nourishment, clarify life issues, work with deep healing where needed, and to find one's own voice and authenticity in the world. The work is  to help you find and establish your path in your own sacred journey, to help you identify and remove obstacles to obtaining your own greatest good.  We whom have been on this journey, best understand it, and can best assist others.  Click here for more information.

You may call or e-mail Zacciah to discuss your personal needs.
You will find articles on the nature of Sound Healing linked below, which may give you further insight into this work, and a link here to Zacciah's background.
