Some of your questions answered in this short video
Here myself and fellow Tutor Alexandra discuss some common questions that we get about this training.
I have been practicing and teaching and sharing sacred sounds for almost fifteen years. I have a deep and ongoing commitment to deepening my own understanding and experience of sound. I believe in, and have witnessed and experience many times with myself and other, the power of our own voice to heal, transform and remember our true nature.
I am so passionate about the power of sacred sound and feel honoured to be offering this training to share the power of this work to you an anyone you work with.
It has helped me open my heart, my awareness, my voice and my confidence to sound and sing. I have also discovered an amazing healing modality that I enjoy sharing with others and experiencing myself.
Fantastic course. I felt very safe and held all the way through. I could really arrive each weekend safe in the knowing that however I was feeling could be used to gain more insight into my process and I could use the practices to help me through.
I have developed a lot of confidence about my own voice. I got a really clear structure for one-to-one treatments that I love.
Lucia is an amazing facilitator, truly gifted at being real and honest throughout the course. Thank You
“It changed my life. It opened my heart and made me more aware of my own voice, my sound and the sounds around me.”
“Lucia brought us through the year with such grace and love. Her teaching was really fluid and flowing.”
“I really appreciated the structure of the case studies and the fact that we had to do so many meant that I really had the time to practice and make any mistakes before being able to work with the public!”
The course has been hugely beneficial, connecting with my voice, a connection I lost a while back but now I’m re-establishing my connection. Plus it’s the connection to the authentic voice. What a journey I feel very blessed. The link I’ve been missing that the journey is now underway.
Each and everyday I use sound to ground myself and bring myself home. I feel that my intentions are stronger and I have a better understanding of how to integrate into family/work life. I am happy in my own skin! “I can now look into the mirror”. The tutors were extremely professional throughout the year and were extremely informative. The treatments were powerful and heartfelt. I was blown away as it brought and heightened my gifts.
I have been sounding the bija mantras – I love this practice! Your rendition has far more resonance than when I have done them previously and it really does feel like a bell being struck. I have found the course to be really deeply nourishing and reaching into parts of me that I don’t usually access.
This course is for you if you have ever been touched by the power of sound. Whether you are a musician, a therapist, or simply curious how the utterance of human sound can relax us, heal us and ultimately liberate us.
Each weekend will be held in-person in the Limerick area – venue will depend on numbers.
