Practitioner Training November 2021

In March 2020, just as the world was entering lockdowns, we were in the midst of one our largest Sound Practitioner Trainings to date. It was one of the last group gatherings for the better part of the year as all of our other trainings were cancelled. In November 2020 and February 2021, we re-emerged to conduct more group trainings. They were absolutely beautiful experiences and reminders of how healing it is to be amongst people, in community, creating beautiful sounds and sharing our stories.

With a greater sense of how important and life changing these trainings are, we are returning in November 2021 for what will inevitably be a phenomenal fall training.

About Shasta

Mount Shasta, located near the Oregon border in northern California, holds the distinction of being one of the world’s preeminent sacred mountains. It is recognized as an eligible Native American cultural and cosmological property on the National Register of Historic Places. Artifacts found in the surrounding area conservatively suggest at least 11,000 years of human habitation, designating this region as one of the longest-occupied areas of North America.

Mount Shasta’s vast antiquity and mythic relevance places its significance on par, historically and categorically, with other sacred sites found among the world’s oldest known civilizations, including the temples and pyramids of Egypt, Stonehenge, the the Mayan Pyramids and Machu Picchu. 

Today experts recognize that these “sacred sites” around the world influence human consciousness and other living organisms in a number of unusual and remarkable ways. They have become colloquially known as ancient “power spots,” places where people commonly experience unusual phenomenon such as UFO-related activity, portals into other dimensions, consciousness-altering experiences, and other paranormal-phenomenon. 

When one enters into a sacred site of so-called “powerful energy,” the mind, body, and spirit are instantly affected. The energy at these places can be felt, sensed, dowsed, photographed, and measured with scientific instrumentation.

What’s Icluded:
  • Food: Simple, Organic, & Vegetarian (vegan + GF options available): 4 dinners, 4 breakfasts & 3 lunches. Lindsey will be preparing the food using her holistic chef skills, along with an assistant.
  • Accommodation: 4 nights at Sheep Rock Ranch
  • Daily Yoga: Led by Lindsey every morning on the outdoor deck facing immaculate views of Mt. Shasta and the high dessert.
  • 25-Hour Sound Practitioner Training: 25hr YACEP Yoga Alliance continuing education hours, and Level 1 certification (if not registered with Yoga Alliance). Hamid will be the main instructor and Lindsey will be assisting.
  • Visit to Mt. Shasta: We will take a trip to visit the sacred mountain where we will explore nature & silence.
  • Optional Activities: Participants may choose to take a trip to nearby mineral springs, schedule massage, and explore the local trails.

Breathwork Sound Journey

Join Hamid and Jill Honeywell for a night of deep breathwork and sound at Abundant Space. Breathwork provides access to subconscious memories stored throughout the body, enabling safe release and reprocessing and deep emotional healing. In addition, breathwork can take participants into the same sorts of transpersonal states as other practices, such as plant medicines and psychedelic medicines. When combined with live sound of drums, flutes, voice, gongs, singing bowls and more, the practice becomes one of deep entrainment of the entire being.

Trance Dance & Cacao Ceremony

Trance dance is a traditional shamanic healing technique that draws on percussive rhythms combined with breath work, entrancing sounds and the use of blindfolds to take participants on an embodied psycho-spiritual journey into deep states of consciousness. The experience, led by Kari Levine and Hamid Jabbar, will begin with setting the sacred space, where ceremonial cacao will be served. This traditional medicine facilitates greater access to heart-centered intuition and connection to the spiritual realm. During the dance, participants are encouraged to move without inhibition in any way the music and energy of the space guides them. Facilitators will safely guide participants into ecstatic states of consciousness where deep physical and emotional healing, as well as spiritual insights, can occur.
