Join us for an experiential class - a journey through the acoustical universe of ancestral sound healing. We will explore uses of instruments and their application to heal body, mind, and spirit. Working with a variety of instruments such as whistling vessels, zamponas, bamboo flutes, pututus (conch shell), ceramic antaras, feathers, seeds, bells, and drums and we will discover their uses in healing and connection to the spirit. We will explore how to use these instruments in ceremonies and rituals. The course will be taught using the knowledge and principals of the Cosmovision of the Peruvian Andes. It is a powerful and yet simple course on how to work shamanically with sound. You do not need to be a musician or even work with sound to benefit from taking this class. Its teachings may be applied to everyone.

TITO LA ROSA is a descendant of Quechua Indians of the Peruvian Andes. For many years, he has been recovering and preserving, studying and intuiting the ancestral music of Peru. He is also a Curandero de Sonido, a sound healer, who enters into an altered state to bring forth sound that elevates, allowing for healing and balance to occur.
Ancient Andean wisdom teaches us that the earth was made while the creator sang, thus all beings are made of sound, rhythm and harmony. Through his concerts, flower ceremonies and music classes La Rosa helps reawaken our memories (memoria antigua) - weaving sounds into frequencies that open the heart and encourage the spirit to soar.
La Rosa has recorded with Mary Youngblood on the Silver Wave record label. His 2002 CD, "The Prophecy of the Eagle and the Condor," was nominated for a Native American Music Award, for Best World Music Recording.
