25hr Art & Science of Sound

Discover the theory and science of sound and dip your toes into the vast ocean of the history and uses of sound across religions, healing and timeless sacred rituals.


Vibration is at the core of all life. The miraculous phenomenon of sound and music has played a key role in our human experience throughout the ages. Music can inspire us, give us strength and courage and dispel the illusion of being separate from nature and one another.

Sound has the power to alleviate physical pain, shift emotional and psychological states and re-align us with our natural frequency, bringing about healing, harmony and connection.

This course is designed to introduce you to the theory and science of sound together with dipping your toes into the vast ocean of the practice and uses of sound for transformation and healing.

By the end of this course you will have a basic understanding of the principles of sound healing. You will gain some tools and practices as well as the confidence and clarity to be able to share sound in a meaningful and intentional way to support both your students and yourself through life’s waves of change.

Course facilitator Avishai Barnatan started exploring different aspects of sound and its uses for physical & emotional transformation and healing in 1990. He is a fulltime sound healer facilitating group and individual sound healing sessions - applying different techniques of voice work and vibrational therapy to help inspire, alleviate pain, stress and anxiety and give people support on their healing journey.

Now, he is ready to share is wealth of wisdom and experience with YOU.

The Essence of Living Art & Science of Sound (25hrs) training takes place at the Essence of Living Tallebudgera Valley Retreat on the stunning Gold Coast, Australia.

We welcome you to the Academy!
