Medicine in the Music: Sound Healing Tips ‘n Tools for Everyone

We all know the healing power of music.  But did you know that the practice of sound healing traces its roots back to the beginning of recorded history?  From the time of the ancients, shamans, medicine people, and healers were revered for their abilities to diagnose, heal and prevent illness through the use of sound.

Yet, many of those practices are much more common than you might think.  Science has begun to catch up with this ancient art, and now more than ever before, we start to understand how managing and harnessing the power of sound – in a World filled with sound made up of vibrations – can prevent up to 90% of medical visits.  Why? Because the root causes of illness are mainly brought on by stress.  Looking back at how ancient cultures have used it, we can harness the power of sound using readily available instruments accessible to anyone.

After a brief history and a smattering of research, we get to the heart of the matter.  Learn and practice stimulating the vagus nerve, a primary key to reducing stress.  Practice better, more efficient breathing for producing oxygen-rich blood.  With demonstrations provided, opportunities for practice with various vibrational instruments, both large and small, will provide an excellent foundational working knowledge of sound healing.  Additionally, various tools will be available for purchase to continue the practice of sound healing.

Vibrational Medicine: A Practice To Heal What Ails You
2 Hour Workshop

Sunday, January 22, 2023           2pm  – 4 pm           Cost – $35

For many, the thought of another visit to the doctor is cause for alarm or at least an unpleasant feeling. It’s little wonder, in looking at our Western Model of Medicine, with a lack of adequate medical care for all, risings costs, and an over-dependency on pharmaceuticals often causing more harm than healing, even with all the advances in modern medicine, that we’re left wondering why we struggle so to achieve a better state of health. And yet, in looking back to Ancient Eastern Cultures, patients often only paid physicians when they were well and not when they were ill. The secrets of Eastern Healing are steeped in vibrational medicine, often called sound healing. Physicians, healers, and the like practice and prescribe working with these simple tools – vibrational sounding, nature journeys, and proper diet – to effect cures that get to the root of the problem.

Fortunately, many of these prescriptions for self-healing have been revealed and are now made available to aid in developing a healthier systems balance in the body. While we do not suggest that one cut out going to the doctor altogether, especially in emergencies, many so-called check-ups and follow-ups can be avoided by adopting some of these elementary practices. Often, after a session, clients indicate headaches and assorted aches and pains simply disappearing. Breathing is improved, mental clarity returns and there is an overall feeling of calm alertness. Posture and gait also benefit here.

Together, in this two-hour hands-on workshop, we’ll take turns giving and receiving vibrational medicine to relieve stress, ease tension, lower heart rate, and blood pressure, and normalize breathing to achieve a more balanced state of being. We’ll practice with gongs, Himalayan bowls, tuning forks, and energy chimes, as well as hand drums and hand pans, and rattles. All instruments and tools for effecting change will be made available for workshop practice. Additionally, there will be a good selection of instruments and tools available for purchase to help you continue to develop and build a more healthful state of being.

The date of this seminar is Sunday, January 22, 2023 from 2PM to 4 PM at the Fayetteville Village Hall. Space is very limited! Preregistration is required for this event. To preregister or to ask questions, call or text Jini Cerio at 315-450-6990.
