Our ancestors have utilized the sacred elements of sound in healing and transforming the body since the beginning of our conscious journey aboard planet Earth. During this presentation, we will explore the physical, spiritual, and emotional benefits of sound and music. I will share how my desire to thrive outside of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder led me to music making. We will explore sound and music making as a modality for self and community healing. Tools and techniques for toning the body will then be offered to assist in positive intention and goal-setting and we will close by coming together and sharing in a sacred sound circle.
