SONADORA with Brooke Hamre Gillespie

A sonadora is one who is a sacred sounder, one who heals with sacred sound and vibrations. Sacred sound is an ancient science that is based on vibration, frequency and intention.  In this workshop series we will focus on learning sound healing techniques, awakening to your inner voice and intuitive energies and opening the pathways to working with sacred sound. We will focus on opening the voice through vocal exercises, sacred mantras, indigenous songs and chants.  

We will work with quartz crystal singing bowls, tuning forks, tibetan singing bowls, gongs, flutes, bells, drums, rattles and other sound healing instruments to explore and learn how to create healing spaces with sound.  We will study elements of sacred sound, color, the medicine wheel and the elements, the chakras and various movement techniques to get into the body, move energy and access our intuition.  

Participants are encouraged to bring their own sound healing instruments to work with but there will be crystal singing bowls and other instruments available.  It is recommended to bring your own instrument so that you can begin to develop a deeper relationship with it and learn how to work with it.
