Module 1 – Naad Yoga 101
An introduction to the yoga of sound & vibration. Naad (or nada) Yoga is one of the 22 branches of yoga. Learn basic theory & practice to enhance your relationship with sound and frequency, as a devotional path to experiencing oneness.
Naad means “the essence of all sound.” It is a particular vibration, a fundamental frequency that comes from one common source or sound current – the source of all creation! Naad can only truly be understood through experience, thus it is the foundation of our entire training as well as everything we do here at the School of Naad and Sound Temple.
Module 2 – Three Stages of Ceremony
Every ceremony is comprised of three distinct and equally important stages. AND here we treat everything we do as ceremony. Life is a ceremony! Preparation is the first stage, followed by execution and finally, integration.
Learn these three stages and how they apply to every session and ceremony you conduct as well as to your life as a whole; so that you can live with more integrity, ease and flow with all that is.
Module 3 – Body as Instrument
Each of us is a healing instrument in and of ourselves. Our voices are designed to heal us, as well as others. Through the practice of yogic asanas and pranayam (breath work) we can clear distortions from our field and align our chakras so that we become a clear channel for our true voice and soul song to flow through. Learn potent yogic exercises to prepare your own body instrument; and gain the confidence to lead these same practices in your own classes, kirtans and sound healing sessions as a way to prepare your audience to relax and receive.
Module 4 – Free Your Voice and Discover Your Unique Style
Here at the School of Naad we don’t teach the what, as much as the how! Discover & hone you own unique voice and teaching style. There is no one else like you, so why not be the best that you can be?! Only then does the concept of ‘competition’ go out the window.
Learn and practice playing with different sound healing tools & instruments to see how you flow and resonate with the intricacies of each, so that you can hone your own style and instrumentation family that best suits your unique sound healing practice and purposes.
Module 5 – Listen Deep and Let it Flow
The number one key to conducting a musical expression of any kind is to surrender in deep listening! Listening to not only the sounds that are being produced auditorily but also the unstruck sound (the anahat) of what is wanting to come through, directly from the heart chakra.
In this module you will learn the art of improvisation as it relates to composition; and experience the healing power of surrender to the song of your heart/soul to come forth in full power!
Module 6 – Power of Mantra and Leading Kirtan
Chanting mantra produces specific vibratory frequencies within the body. The sounds and thoughts produced by the body and mind radiate out from you. The frequency of a mantra draws to you whatever you are vibrating; you are like a magnet attracting vibrations to you by what you send out.
Learn mantras compatible with all belief systems and gain the confidence required to lead your own kirtans or singing circles.
Module 7 – Inducing Trance States
Yes, it is absolutely possible to induce shamanic trance states for your clients without the use of plant medicines. In this module we cover various elements of Laya Yoga, ‘Yoga of mergence’ which involves rythm and meditation on the inner sound current of the naad.
Here you will learn specific ways to induce these states of trance for your participants.
Module 8 – Tuning the Human Energy Field
Here you will learn and practice the art of performing private sound healing treatments with clients, treating the body at specific meridian points using various sound tools such as tibetan bowls, vocal toning & tuning forks.
With practice & commitment you can become a qualified ‘Sound Healer’.
Module 9 – Activate Abundance
Here we will cover many different creative ways to incorporate sound healing into your practice, teachings and life. Learn to apply sound healing in yoga, meditation, yoga nidra, group sessions, private sessions, different types of ceremonies, space clearings, etc. and how you can use your new found skills to earn significant income from your practice!
Throughout the course you will be provided the opportunity to practice sound healing hands-on; and at the end of your training we will provide the space for you to showcase your new skills to the community. Further we will cover the basics of how to set yourself for earning from your heart work, and you will receive all the activations necessary to fully claim your worth through your practice.
