We will use a variety of instruments throughout the week as we learn about the nature of sound and how to use various instruments, in private, personal and professional therapeutic situations, but also in reverence to the Living Elements of Earth and Sky.
Zacciah 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 sound 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.
Zacciah brings with him a warmth and radiance that exudes through his work.
We invite you to join us in this insightful and uplifting program for personal and professional development.
Zacciah will be joined by his uniquely qualified partner Dorothy Stone, who assists us on many levels, offering her insight and wisdom, pure heart, and compelling, transformative voice, as well as in depth knowledge and experience with Sacred Chant. Dorothy also brings decades of experience as a licensed body therapist, with years of applied sound therapies within her practice, and will offer her perspective on sound's use in bodywork.
Dorothy also overseas the needs of individuals in the program, and all logistics. She, also, is a compassionate builder of community, which adds even greater depths to these programs!

FEEDBACK FROM OUR STUDENTS
Certificates of training are given to those completing each phase of this training, with a special presentation at the end of each series. Certificates will indicate the level of training completed.
This program certificate will indicate the number of hours and days completed in the training. It can serve to meet the Module I requirement in future Level I (year long) programs.
Completion of the Level I programs are a foundation for, and a requirement of, higher level studies, which will integrate deeper experiential practical application in therapeutic settings. See Advanced Level II program information here. Level III participation will incorporate a more in depth process of coherent process, applications of technique, intake, and supervisory guidance as a sound therapist.
