Upon completion of the courses, you may choose to take the online Master Class, which focuses on safely applying the settings you have learned. To become a certified Emily Hess® Basic Trust Coach, you must complete both the Masterclass and the Peter Hess® Sound Massage Level I course.

Basic Trust - Transformation

In this workshop, we'll explore how to cultivate your Basic Trust and authentic connection with your feelings. Using sounds creatively, we'll enhance self-positivity and release physical tension to access the power of your soul. This newfound security will empower you to make new impactful life decisions. Learn to perceive your body in a healing way, promote mindfulness, and receive instructions for safe sound application in client settings.


  • Introduction: What is Basic Trust and how does it develop?

  • Recognising the resources of each individual

  • Basic Trust Sound Massage

  • Basic Trust in an indigenous context (e.g. among the Newaris in Nepal)

  • Experience of Basic Trust in nourishing sound spaces

  • Scope: 24 hours

Basic Trust - In Dialogue with your Soul

In this course, we'll uncover hidden aspects within, restoring self-efficacy and shaping our world through newfound awareness. Sound harmonises our inner and outer worlds. Explore solution-focused sound spaces for self-liberation, understanding energy patterns, and personal development with a sense of lightness. Graduates apply these settings in daily problem-solving, finding life becomes easier. Each sound setting is client-friendly for practical use.


  • Basics of interpersonal communication

  • Sound spaces and Meditations

  • Exercises related to the use of sounds and their effect on this topic

  • Scope: 16 hours

Basic Trust - Sound of Life

This course aims to enrich and positively reframe your life journey. Life often brings tension and disconnection from our bodies, impacting well-being. Through deep relaxation techniques, including extended Sound Massages, we evoke a sense of 'aliveness' in the "dance of life" setting. Experimental sound spaces empower you to reclaim control, shaping life with creativity and responsibility. Reconnect with your inner resources and reshape your biography. Use the learned sound spaces creatively in therapeutic work.


  • Draw strength through resource-oriented connection to our ancestors

  • Experience your own life path through sound

  • "Dance of Life" 

  • Access dreams and visions through meditation

  • Become aware of the positive and sustaining force that exists within you

  • Scope: 24 hours

Information Masterclass online 

Through in-person courses, you'll explore 24 Basic Trust Settings and healing imaginations. The Master Class extends this knowledge, allowing you to guide clients in coaching and mentoring situations. The online program, spanning 24 hours, includes live mentorship sessions via Zoom for implementation in your professional life. Emily Hess provides insights and support to enhance your skills.

I am very excited to host this unique experience for the first time and can't wait to have you on board.
