Sound and Vibrational Therapy Training

The Art of Sound

Shodan Training - Level 1 Black Belt, 1st Dan

Shodan is the first level of Sound and Vibrational Therapy Training/The Art of Sound. Shodan training will take 6 - 12 months depending on your commitment (Satori Training will allow 2 years to compete this). Training will be delivered in a workshop environment plus practical training, practical experience working in our Sound Chamber contributing to our Sound Sessions and participation in Crystal Spiral Sound Circles. Throughout our workshop times, meals will be provided and tea/coffee will flow to keep us focused and energised. Ongoing practical training times will be flexible and operated in daytime and evening hours.

The Shodan Training Program will commence with your first two day workshop on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th March 2019. A further two day workshop will be confirmed at a later date.

Here is where the training becomes serious.  Shodan is the first step in formal training, it is delivered within the discipline of Martial Arts.

Shodan begins with a two day workshop to cover relevant units of competency, these are; Work Safely in a Sound and Vibration Sound Chamber Environment; Participate in Sound and Vibration Therapy Sessions; Contribute to Supervised Sound and Vibration Therapy Sessions and Use and Sustain Singing Bowls.  This workshop delivers the knowledge of safety in the Sound Chamber environment and understanding your own bio mechanics combined with safe handling as you prepare to learn the instruments.

Our early training gives emphasis to the foundations to deliver Sound and Vibrational Therapy,  i.e., technique, body balance, timing, mallet control and safety (for both yourself and your client).  We also have a strong Theory component which has been built using the units of our Accredited Training Program.  ‘

Shodan also includes Chakra training, our second workshop is devoted to this, here you develop a strong understanding and will give and receive Chakra balance and alignment.  You will also participate in 10 Crystal Spiral Sound Circles incorporating 14 crystal singing bowls woven with tubular bells and gongs.
