I am inspired to offer this class based on my years of study of sound and music. In 2006, 2007, 2008, I accompanied singers and dancers and presented my rhythm work at the International Sound Healing Conference in Santa Fe NM, where I was able to study with the top teachers and practitioners in the field of Sound Healing. I hosted World Sound Healing Day (Feb 14) in Sebastopol several years in a row and have collaborated with several local sound workers including Rene Jenkins, Blue Muse, The Celestial Voice, Caroluna, and Bodhi Starwater.
