Sonadora is about sacred shamanic sound, about tuning into subtle vibrations and learning how to heal with sacred sound and vibrations. Sacred shamanic sound is an ancient science that is for healing and consciousness and is based on vibration, frequency and intention or focus.
In this workshop, we will focus on listening, awareness, intention and intuition as we learn sound healing techniques, awaken to the inner voice and intuitive energies. We will focus on opening the voice through vocal exercises, sacred mantras, indigenous songs and chants and creating sacred sound through shamanic sacred sound healing instruments.
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.
