Part I​

This seminar is open and designed for all those who enjoy storytelling, presenting meditations and lyrical texts, or wish to work with imaginations in individual settings, groups, or as coaches for various purposes. Participants will learn to deepen the impact of Imaginary Journeys and texts through the creative use of Singing Bowls and Gongs. In a lively atmosphere, practical sessions will teach you how to craft beautiful "soundscapes" that enhance the resonance of our stories. Theory and practical exercises alternate throughout the seminar.

Part I​I

In this seminar, we learn to create our own Imaginary Sound Journeys. We will dive deeply into language as it plays a crucial role in the effectiveness of the experience.

Language has something magical about it. Through language, we connect with others, present ourselves, share our lives, and encourage others to take action. Language has the power to shape the world, especially when used imaginatively. Listeners in deep relaxation translate every image we paint with our words directly into an inner picture. Inner pictures, in turn, create reality.

Imaginary Sound Journeys can help to

  • Develop new ideas in life

  • Recognize healthy pathways

  • Facilitate learning

  • (Re)discover spirituality

  • Find creative solutions

  • And much more..​.

After this seminar, you will be able to write your own Imaginary Sound Journeys tailored to each client. This gives your practice a unique offering.

What to expect:
Lectures, demonstrations, Sound Meditations, experiential exercises, practicing (giving & receiving) and verbal sharing.
We will use massage tables and floor mats with cushions in our practice sessions.
We only use therapeutic Peter Hess® Therapy Singing Bowls and Sangha® Meditation Singing Bowls which are available at the courses.
