Sound Bowl Mastery and Level 1 Training

Dear friends,

We’re delighted to announce visiting practitioner Rj Noble, who will be leading sound bowl Level 1 and 2 singing bowl training workshops here in August and September. Having experienced 1:1 sessions, group sound meditation journeys and training with Rj, I can personally highly recommend him and am thrilled that he is able to join us!

29th August – 2nd September

(3 Days, 4 Nights) from $500

Every sound is a vibration and every living cell responds directly to vibration. Singing Bowls produce sounds that evoke a deep state of relaxation and restore the normal vibratory frequencies of the mind, body and soul.

Join Rj Noble in a hands-on experiential weekend training-retreat. Learn to master the techniques required to truly play a sound bowl and make it sing, then apply these techniques to the beautifully gentle, yet powerful practice of sound bowl healing.

Day 1: History and Sound Bowl Techniques

Learn about the history of sound bowls, their manufacture, the tools used to play them and the healing benefits of sound meditation.

In a hands-on day of guided experimentation, gain familiarity and mastery of the various techniques used to create healing vibrations on the bowls.

Day 2: Four Bowl Energetic Balancing

Following a question and answer session, you will have the opportunity to refine the playing techniques gained on day 2. Today you will also learn about the importance of sound in bringing balance to emotional and physical issues, and how sound healing can be utilised to retrain cellular memory.

You will master the correct alignment of bowls for healing and become proficient in the four bowl balancing techniques and patterns, utilised in 1:1 balancing healing sessions. You will also gain a basic grounding in energetic feng shui.

Day 3: Seven Bowl Healing

Following a second question and answer session, this morning will focus on practising the four bowl balancing healing technique. You will then extend your awareness of the importance and powerfully curative properties of sound healing.

The afternoon will be spent in advancing your skills to the seven bowl healing pattern with time to practice the application of this new technique.

End this wonderful weekend training-retreat with a closing discussion before receiving your certificate and enjoying a final sound bowl meditation journey.
