Imagine spending a transformative year amplifying your healing skills by integrating the science, theory, and leading-edge practices of sound healing confidently making them your own.

Leverage your passion for music in the growing, evidence-based field of sound healing that is thriving in yoga studios, retreat centers, festivals, and hospitals.

Scientific research continues to show that many of the world’s ancient sound-healing traditions have measurable frequency effects on the mind. Tools like tuning forks and sacred drumming can help you access altered states of consciousness, the creative flow state, and higher states of realization.

Sound healing, which is complementary to virtually every other healing modality, is the easiest way to bypass our conscious mind and release patterns that no longer serve us.

Throughout history, music has been used to celebrate and elevate humanity. Modern science now confirms that sound healing can do much more, including releasing trauma, elevating our emotional state, and accelerating the healing process from disease.

Through entrainment, our consciousness can reach higher octaves of creativity. We can open our hearts. We can use soundscapes for journeying and receiving clear intuitions and higher guidance. We can simply bathe in the healing frequencies of crystal bowls, flutes, and drums... naturally allowing the sounds to carry us to a more conscious space.

As you explore the foundational principles of sound, sound therapies, and healing musical practices, you’ll participate in guided exercises and practices learning how to design these sound-healing experiences yourself.

Ownership of sound-healing tools or instruments is not required in order to participate in, or complete, this training program.

Jeralyn is deeply sensitive to the healing influences of sound vibration. When she sings, her whole being becomes a crystal vessel for the pure light and sound of spirit. Jeralyn’s presence is uplifting, loving, and transformative.
Lilli Botchis, PhD

“Jeralyn’s songs and her voice have touched in a way that has left me transformed.”

Jeralyn is an extraordinary conduit for sacred sound! She is music, sound, and tone, which she brings forth in her phenomenal voice, and the gifts of her bowls with which she creates a beautiful dance of sound that reaches into your soul.

Fred Johnson

“[Fred’s] voice is soul-stirring.”

I’ve had the distinct pleasure of being in a couple of groups with Baba Fred, in which he guided me to find my... breath. It sounds simple, I know. But sometimes life has a way of knocking it out of you, and you don’t realize it until someone gently says “breathe.” It took me over five years to hear Baba Fred sing and not respond with tears. His voice is soul-stirring. His abandon for letting his light shine without pretenses, and without the negatives of ego, is captivating and freeing at the same time. He’s a true exemplar of “get out of your own way!”
Sophia Neghesti

“[Fred provides] a safe and nurturing space for expression...”

I’ve known Fred for over 20 years, and in that time he has provided the framework for the musician that I am now. Working with Fred has given me confidence as an improvisational musician and all-around performer. I’ve also had many chances to attend workshops and classes given by Fred events that have always provided opportunities to learn new skills as well as new ways to view the world around me. He does exceptional work with veterans, providing a safe and nurturing space for expression and the opportunity for civilians and veterans to interact and co-create. Fred has much to offer as a teacher, spiritual guide, and life coach.
Catherine Dana Costa, Largo, Florida

I have had such a vibrant experience. The Brothers Koren are so true, generous, and welcoming. The whole experience is like a taste of heaven. It really is a soul-to-soul walk in a safe environment. I found myself so much more confident and able to sing my soul and express my voice with more confidence and more often. A huge thanks to the Brothers Koren, those two angels on Earth.
Josette Boucher, Québec, Canada

Eileen McKusick

“Eileen’s enthusiasm is contagious and I am sooo thankful to have had this opportunity...”

I was so impressed with the effects of a sound treatment. It’s hard to explain the effects, they are so personal. But I have increased awareness, have begun a self-care routine with the sonic slider that is decreasing pain, toning muscle, shaping my body, giving me stamina, and I’m feeling some detoxification. I loved Eileen’s talks as well. I resonated with absolutely everything she said. I have studied Acutonics tuning forks for 14 years and this just ices the tuning fork cake! I am so excited to learn more about the energy anatomy and discerning the meanings of the overtones expressed in the sounds. Eileen’s enthusiasm is contagious and I am sooo thankful to have had this opportunity to start a new learning journey.
Mary Twombly Milla, Bingen, Washington

“Eileen’s incredible body of work... is... deeply nourishing.”

Eileen’s incredible body of work eloquently presented through this series is enlightening, releasing, empowering, informative, and deeply nourishing. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is looking to improve the quality of their relationship with themselves. I am not the same person as when I started.

The Yuval Ron Ensemble’s poetry, melodies, rhythms, and movements transcend political, linguistic, and religious divisions. Yuval Ron is a master storyteller, whose soft-spoken sincerity and insights promote human solidarity, serving as a powerful antidote to our pessimism and cynicism. By the end of the concert, the audience once again believes in the possibilities for peace and friendship among Muslims, Christians, and Jews.

Mayumi, Netherlands

“Puma brings an openness to a global perspective and a sense that we are participating in the co-creation of a new world view.”

There is a tremendous gratitude in my heart for these wisdom teachings that resonate with me, especially the incorporation of healing through the balance of the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine. Puma brings an openness to a global perspective and a sense that we are participating in the co-creation of a new world view. To me it is particularly helpful to hear from Puma that each of us is empowered to decide for ourselves what rings true and where to focus our energies. Many thanks for bringing us an authentic healer all the way from the mountains of Perú.
Susan McDevitt, San Diego, California

Lua Cheia, founder and creator of Clareia Botanicals

“... it is deep emotional and physical healing that takes place from [Lindsey’s] work.”

I run what many consider to be one of the best healing/detox programs on the planet. This is because I source some of the best healers from around the world and Lindsey Wise is one of these healers. I don’t have words for what Lindsey does but it is deep emotional and physical healing that takes place from her work. She is an absolute angel and facilitates amazing healing sessions with music, vibrational medicine, and much more. You will not be disappointed if you decide to work with her and I just hope she doesn’t get too much other work as I hope to have her at my programs for years to come.

A PERSONAL INVITATION FROM STEPHEN DINAN, FOUNDER AND CEO OF THE SHIFT NETWORK

 

Dear Friend,

I believe humanity’s future will literally be changed by sound healing.

It works on every level, from the physical to the emotional to the spiritual. Sound healing opens us to a higher octave of health, healing, and awakening.

You’ve likely already experienced the uniquely healing magic of sound and experienced its ability to help you shift your spiritual, mental, and emotional states.

Sound healing is used in hospitals, yoga studios, and practitioner clinics providing many opportunities for people seeking to transition into a new career.

Over the course of a year, you will explore sound through various lenses, theories, and modalities, engaging in both intellectual study and embodied experiences.

We opened the doors to our first-of-its-kind, 14-month deep dive into the scientific, shamanic, and sacred elements of sound healing last year. We were blown away by the trailblazers who raised their hands to be part of one of today’s most exciting, fastest-growing professions.

When we launched the first class of graduates into the world, we were inspired as we watched them use what they learned to deepen and amplify their existing work in the world, embark on brand-new careers, and share this profound healing modality with their family, friends, and communities.

Now, if you’re feeling called, I’m honored to invite you to step into the next evolution of who you’re becoming as part of this global phenomenon that’s opening new levels of healing, and making a difference in the lives of those who need it most.

If you’re feeling an inner YES, I encourage you to join us. It promises to be another exciting, liberating, and uplifting year!
