Sound Healing Certificate Program with Kay Grace,CAEH, Day Class Series, Minneapolis, MN
NEW! For those who cannot commit to 8 weekend days, we have created a Hybrid Series with amazing, online study course and live webinars you attend in the comfort of your own home, AND a Full 3 Day Retreat for Hands-On Experience at the end of the online course series, so you only need to travel once! Details on the NEW Hybrid Certificate Program are HERE:
This Sound Healing Training Program (Mastery Level I) will also be offered as a 7 day retreat intensive in Summer 2023! Check out the beautiful pictures of our location overlooking Lake Superior, near Grand Marais, click HERE for the photos!
Sound Healing Mastery is a Sound Healing Practitioner Certificate Program offering 9 individual classes as well as a weekend retreat designed to build a solid foundation in vibrational or sound therapy. In this groundbreaking series you will learn the art and science of sound healing, from how it works, to experiencing it through immersion. You will also learn to use the tools of Sound Healing, from focusing your intention to using Tibetan bowls, tuning forks, crystals, crystal singing bowls, drums, light and color, sacred geometry, music and movement, and using your own voice to heal as you practice both giving and receiving the healing power of sound.
Sound Healing is a form of energy medicine or vibrational therapy. Every living thing has a frequency or vibration. When we harness the power of these frequencies and add new ones with conscious intention, we create a positive, healing reaction, not only in the body, but also in the realms of energy, mental, emotional and spiritual.
You’ll also learn the ethics of vibrational therapy, and how not to project your own issues into a healing session. How to create and maintain good energetic boundaries is also included so that you can keep your energy strong and clear while you help others, instead of feeling drained.
In the final class, you’ll learn exactly how to conduct a sound healing session, and be introduced to heart based business practices, to create a solid foundation for your healing work, whether you use it for friends and family, or as the foundation or addition to a thriving client practice.
Using sound and vibration with attention, awareness and positive intention helps us create greater harmony and happiness in our lives, our communities and the world, as we connect to the power within us and use it to raise our own vibration to the highest level we can imagine.
You may register for one class, or for the entire series at a discount.
When Spring Dates for 2022 are available, the weekend day classes will be listed here.

Sound Healing Mastery Certificate Program:
INTRODUCTION CLASS: Sound Healing Basics
Discover how sound healing works and why it is emerging as a highly respected and invaluable treatment method in the field of integrative health and wellness. Learn to use basic sound healing tools to shift into any state of being you want, and find out how sound is used to clear mental, physical and emotional roadblocks, and to harmonize with your environment. Experience an introduction to Tibetan Singing Bowls, Tuning Forks, Crystal Singing Bowls, Drums, and using your own Voice to create a circle of healing sound.
CLASS 1: The Healing Power of Sound – Foundation
Explore the art and science of Sound Healing through immersion and hands on experiential learning. We will cover the how and the why, as well as an overview of the chakras and the Human Energetic System as it relates to Sound Healing. You’ll learn how to connect with your Higher Self and to trust the guidance it brings. We’ll cover the ethics of vibrational therapy, and how not to project your own issues into a healing session, and the importance of doing your own healing work on yourself. As you are introduced to the tools of sound healing, you’ll practice giving and receiving mini sound sessions, and learn some simple yet powerful practices to incorporate into your everyday life.
CLASS 2: Sounding the Earth – Drums, Dance & Didgeridoo
Sound healing has been around for thousands of years, and many of these methods are just as powerful today as they were then. From tribal or ecstatic dance, to rhythm, drums and the didgeridoo of the Australian Aborigines, these ancient sounds connect us to the Earth in a primal way, as the vibrations make us want to move. Shamans have used drums to anchor vision quests, while others have used drums to call in a state of being, create a ritual, raise energy, or to release a stuck or stagnant energy. Experience using movement, earth music, voice, drums, and rattles, take yourself on a guided sound journey to access your inner wisdom, and to let go of anything that is not serving your highest good.
Guest co-teacher: Hanakia Zedek: with Inner Voice & the Talking Woods.
CLASS 3: Voice I – Your Soul Signature
Intention is everything, but what if you’re not aware of them all? Learn to recognize when something is honoring your authentic Voice, and when it is not. Uncover unconscious “ counter intentions” which may be blocking you from your highest potential. Use your voice to shift your energy with sound toward greater harmony and toward what you DO want, while letting go of whatever is no longer serving your highest good. We’ll explore the ancient art of chanting and sacred mantras to experience this first hand.
CLASS 4: Voice II– As A Healing Tool
Your voice is the most powerful of all the sound healing tools. Learn how to tone to clear and balance the energy centers in yourself and others, as well as how to use the voice to dissolve physical, mental, emotional or even spiritual blocks. We’ll practice how to use toning to do distance healing and healing with groups of people. We’ll also cover using the voice as a diagnostic tool, and an introduction to overtone singing, also known as vocal harmonics. You’ll learn how to use your voice effectively without hurting your throat or vocal cords.
CLASS 5: Singing Metals: Tibetan Bowls, Chimes & Tuning Forks
Learn how to use Tibetan Bowls to balance the energy centers, to clear blocks and to entrain a person into a state of peace and calming. These amazing metal singing bowls can also be used to determine where a block may be in the energy system. Tuning Forks, Metal chimes and Ting-Shas are additional sound healing tools from the singing metals family; learn how they work and practice some great self-care methods as well as ways to work with others to balance and harmonize the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies. You’ll learn to use tuning forks both on the body at acupressure points, as well as off the body, in the energy field, depending on the desired outcome.
CLASS 6: Sounding the Light; Color & Clarity
Sound waves are actually physical matter (atoms and molecules), where light waves are electromagnetic and appear as different colors when dispersed through a prism. Learn how to use sound, light and color together to create a powerful healing effect. Many healing systems connect specific colors to specific chakras or energy centers, and specific sounds to certain colors as well, while others feel that any color can be “encoded” onto any sound, as long as the intention is clear. You’ll learn to work with colors in both ways, and to trust your intuition about which method is best in a particular situation.
CLASS 7: Crystals and Clairaudience
Crystal singing bowls and crystals amplify, transform, store, focus, transfer and transmute energy. Our bodies also contain “crystalline structures,” as bones, and the myelin sheaths of the nervous system, which is why using them is so powerful as a sound healing tool – it affects us “bone deep.” When we master the use of crystal, we open ourselves to become an instrument of transmission and reception – of higher wisdom and healing sound. Learn how to use crystals with sound effectively both for healing and to develop your intuition and clairaudience – the power to hear sounds & messages beyond the reach of ordinary experience.
CLASS 8: Ethics & Building a Sound Healing Practice
Now that you’ve learned the tools and gained real experience in using sound to help real people, it’s time to step into your new role as a guide and healing presence. You will learn how to conduct a complete Sound Healing session with a friend or client, from intake and regulatory concerns, to asking from the heart for your client to book their next appointment. We’ll cover the ethics of vibrational therapy in more depth, and how to create and maintain good energetic boundaries so that you can keep your energy strong and clear while you help others. We’ll discuss the importance of doing your own self-healing work, and provide useful tools for a daily practice to keep you clear and grounded, and provide resources for times when the healer needs healing!

Understand and experience for yourself what it’s like to focus on your BEING, instead of on DOING, and on what else is possible, as you practice allowing, receiving and letting go of judgments and limited thinking that may have stopped you from stepping into your magnificence – your authentic self hood.
We’ll experience the use of music as medicine. Music speaks to both sides of the brain, logical/ verbal AND emotional/non verbal, which is why music and singing is so effective in helping people with Alzheimer’s regain some memory and even the ability to speak in some cases. The more complex music is, the more it draws the listener in as it both intrigues the mind and touches the emotions. We’ll explore music from the perspective of both creators and active listeners, and learn what kinds of music works well in different situations, from healing sessions to better productivity, to studying for tests, or reducing stress and anxiety.
Whether you plan to serve clients as a sound healing practitioner, or simply to use what you have learned to create greater harmony, healing and happiness in your life, this retreat will be an anchor of well-being, confidence and self-mastery.
You will also receive a ticket (my treat) to a fantastic concert held right in our location, given by Michael James Wachner, a Minneapolis based producer, songwriter and musician. Michael has an incredible way of channeling pure spirit when he plays, embodying and radiating healing energy in and through the music.
Michael’s performances are a catalyst for healing, meditation and transformation and seem to embody the beauty and spirit of the woods and water surrounding us.
His soul shines through his music, and you will never forget how it makes you feel. He will help us to anchor the sacred sound space with a very special musical meditation as well. Michael’s Website
