The Sonic Being Method :: Sound Healing Training Level 1
May 2nd & 3rd, 2020, 10am - 7pm, Saturday & Sunday
The Sanctuary :: Mar Vista, CA (Address released to registered students)
Learn the fundamentals of Sound Healing, the different instruments, how to play them, techniques to relax, release, and balance energy, basic science of how and why sound healing works, and more. Students will learn how to hold space for individuals, small groups. and most importantly, self-care.
Walk away with basic sound healing skills to integrate into your current healing practice or enough to get started if completely new to working with vibrational healing. This course is great for body workers, acupuncturists, meditation teachers, yoga instructors and other practitioners wishing to broaden their offerings. No prior knowledge in sound healing needed but there will be a book list to start reading to begin your journey into this dynamic subject before the training.
Included in the course is learning about the Sonic Being Method, a protocol developed over the past ten years that offers a gentle yet powerful way to give your client the proper dosage of sounds and vibrations without over-activating them. With this knowledge, you will be a very skillful and powerful sound healer.
Students will receive a Level 1 certificate after completing the following:
– Completion of the 2 day course
– Perform 5 complimentary and 5 donation-based sound baths for friends (10 total) and turn in feedback forms
– Read 2 books from book list – turn in short book report (1 page)
– Take short Quiz on Basic Sound Healing Knowledge
– Apprentice at a Sonic Being Sound Bath if your goal is to facilitate group sound baths (minimum of one session but may apprentice additional to expand “real life” sound bath experience. This is not mandatory yet encouraged.)

A Personal Note from Michelle:
I am excited to continue to offer the level 1 sound healing training. The workshops over the last two years were a huge success and it expands my heart to bring this program to fruition and see a growing community of sound healers. I am thrilled to educate others about this dynamic subject and share tricks of the trade with like-minded souls.
In this training, I will share my knowledge which will be a blend of the best teachings I’ve gained from over a decade of studies and facilitating sound healing experiences. This will also include teaching the Sonic Being Method – a fine-tuned recipe of vibrations that offers a gentle yet powerful healing session to perform for private or group sessions.
Sound Baths have become very popular and many dive in without proper training. So many people have come to me sharing their experiences from other sounds baths where they have walked away with headaches, feeling off balance, or over-activated. The Sonic Being Method is a balanced protocol where you won’t overdose your client with vibration and will only offer an effective and enjoyable healing soundscape experience.
I feel, creating music and creating a healing soundscape are two very different things. One is a personal expression and the other is creating an experience with the healing of others at your highest priority. There is some overlap, but it is important to understand the difference between the two. This starts with the knowing that it’s not about you but it starts with you. It’s about developing your own connection with sound and vibration that allows you to consciously facilitate for others. It’s one thing to learn how to play these powerful instruments and it’s another to learn how to properly apply their sounds and vibrations in a healing session.
In this training, we focus on developing an understanding of what the different types of vibrations and frequencies are and how they impact the human body physically, mentally, and energetically. When working with private clients or groups, the knowledge of how to pin point and navigate what is needed for a unique individual or an overall group energy is just one of many important topics we discuss. The level one course will be a wonderful introduction of many sound healing techniques as we introduce an array of applications with different instruments. Sound healing is a dynamic subject with many modalities under its umbrella. My intention is to show you the lay of the land, and then let you be inspired to either focus on one area or explore them all!
Join me for a two day hands on training and walk away feeling confident to get started in the most authentic and effective way possible. You can also consider taking the training even if you plan to focus on self-care only. Since the level 1 class establishes the foundation and is an introduction to the array of sound healing modalities, later this year I will introduce master classes for level 1 students to hone in on their skills in each specific modality within sound healing. It takes time to study, absorb the information, and to practice and share. The Sonic Being Sound Healing program is a place for a community of sound healers to learn, grow, and activate together.
Please contact me with any questions!
“I cannot say enough about Michelle and her Sonic Being Sound Healing Level 1 Training Class. It was exactly what I was seeking for a sound healing training class. The hands on time paired with the extensive knowledge shared helped me truly feel like I could heal with sound for myself and others. The information Michelle compiled and shared was so detailed yet very understandable for all skill levels. I cannot wait to complete my certification and move on to level 2! Thank you so much Michelle for opening my mind and hear to the possibilities of healing with sound!” – VS
“Michelle’s program not only touches on the scientific knowledge but offers hands on opportunity for her students to learn, and practice with each other. I am excited that she offers an apprenticeship program following completion of level 1 training, and looking forward to being apart of it.” – LA
“I can’t believe how much I learned about sound healing over a 2 day period. This experience has changed my perspective of how I move through my own healing and with holding space for others. I loved being able to play each type of instrument. This allowed me to figure out which are my favorite so I can confidently purchase my first few singing bowls and tuning forks. I also love the reading list. So many great books to dive into!” Thank you Michelle for sharing your knowledge with us so we can pass it along! – KS
