Workshop Program

Overview of the course.  Healing with Himalayan/Tibetan singing bowls.  

Day Two

Working with Crystal Singing Bowls.  Tuning Forks in Sound Therapy.  

Day Three

Drums and Percussion for healing. Introduction to Gongs  

Day Four

Voice Therapy for Health and Wellness. Bringing it all together to create your own toolbox to help yourself and others.      






Each Day

 Each day there will be some gentle warm-up exercises.








This is a hands on practical workshop. You will have plenty of opportunity to practice with the instruments, to both give and receive sound healing.            


From this Level 1 Certificate course you will come away with

more than a dozen separate and distinct Sound Therapy techniques which vary in length. Each has a specific healing purpose.  


For example

      •        techniques specifically designed for relaxation and stress relief

      •        to release excess energy

      •        to bring in energy to areas where it is needed

      •        for pain relief

      •        grounding techniques, often as part of another technique  


There are techniques

      •        for working  directly on the body

      •        for working in the biosphere or energy field, around the body  


Sound Therapy packages.  

Each of these techniques is an individual Sound Therapy package. They vary in length from 5 minutes to 15 minutes. Many of them can be lengthened into a whole Sound Therapy session.


Each of these packages uses one Sound Therapy instrument.

 The advantage of this is that you can start your journey into the healing power of sounds with just one Sound Therapy instrument, which you may already have!  


If you are wanting to help your friends and family these packages are ideal, as they can be easily fitted into daily life.  


If you are wanting to engage in your own personal healing these packages are simple and very effective, as you will soon discover for yourself!  


If you are a practitioner these Sound Therapy packages are ideal for integration into your existing practice.    


You will learn how to play Tibetan singing bowls, crystal singing bowls, tuning forks, drums, and gongs. All the instruments are provided. And of course you can bring your own instruments too.    


Combining the Sound Therapy packages.


On the final day each participant will both give, and receive, a full Sound Therapy treatment.


A variety of instruments and several of the packages will be combined to provide a cohesive extended Sound Therapy session.  





By the end of the workshop will be able to both give and receive a sound therapy treatment for the health and well being of yourself and others.






This workshop is a healing space.

You will be experiencing for yourself the healing power of sound in a nurturing, healing and transformative space.  


You will learn how to create this safe nurturing healing space for others, and for yourself.


 Holding Space. You will experience how to hold this positive healing energy, through which to play the sounds. This in itself is a powerful and vital aspect of Sound Therapy and the workshop experience.  


Intention. You will learn how to incorporate intention into your sound therapy treatments. The intention you, your client, family member or friend has for a positive outcome is key to the success of Sound Therapy.

Each participant works with their own personal intention for a positive outcome for themselves.


There is more about the power of intention and how it is supported by scientific research in the Level 2 Practitioner Diploma Course.


Basic scientific principles which underly sound therapy are introduced.

NOTE that that the Level 1 Handbook covers this in more depth. In the workshop the science is introduced at a basic level.    

This course does not assume any knowledge, and you are welcome to ask where you need clarification.  


At the same time if you are a therapist, musician, or carer, with much experience, you will bring this all knowledge to bear on the information and techniques and personally engage at that level. Roise holds a great depth of understanding of the healing process, and the ability to pass this on.    



Participants are well supported in their healing. As well as Roise there is at least one experienced support person on hand in the workshop.    


The whole workshop is a positive nurturing space within which you personally will discover the power of sound to heal, and how to use this to help others.

My life has changed because of it, in a beautiful opening way. Roise has been a great support, extremely helpful and has gently guided us through.  Thank you!

I loved every minute of the workshop. Roise’s pace was wonderful, her delivery was with passion and grace.

Her calmness and invitation to question/participate in group feedback was wonderful. She is extremely knowledgable and approachable.

She seems to cup her hands and invite people into her space rather than ask them to. Very intimate, supportive and nourishing.

Michelle 2016    


 I am well and truly hooked, and the possibilities and numerous tools that can be used for sound therapy provide a fun environment, and don’t ever get uninteresting.

I liked the online help and the videos a lot, and it was very easy to navigate through it.
