Hi, I’m Shirley!
I’m a sound healer and your teacher for this course. I’m so thrilled you’re considering this sound healing course and continuing your journey into different healing modalities.
What I love about Sound Healing is that every culture has roots in the practice. No matter who you are, or where you come from, you’ll have your own cultural history to relate back to. This is an incredibly inclusive modality that provides healing benefits to yourself and others.
Growing up, I loved music and sound, so when I was looking to deepen my meditation practice, I looked towards various instruments that could help me get into a meditative state. With the help of crystal bowls, I found that I immediately was more relaxed and calmer in my day to day. And I was intrigued! How could playing these bowls in particular have such a stronger effect than just listening to relaxing music?
This kicked off my curiosity and education on the impacts of sound on your body, what happens to your brain as you listen to specific frequencies, and how to best guide others to also experience the healing benefits of sound. And now, I’d love to share that knowledge with you!
I hope that you decide to join me in your exploration of sound healing!

Yes! This course is for anyone who is curious about sound healing and wants to learn more.
Can I do this course without any instruments?
Absolutely, and know that you are not without any sound healing instruments… you have your voice! 🙂
Where can I purchase sound healing instruments?
Look to see if any local music stores carry any. Many times crystal stores/bookshops will carry certain instruments. Crystal bowls are easily purchasable on Amazon or Etsy.
