Another Sound Healing course ?!
I heard about this course via WatsApp while I was in the middle of our last 200hour Yoga Teacher Training. Despite being fully immersed in that experience at the time, as soon as I read the program outline I felt called to join.
The course was due to start just a week after our 21 day YTT was supposed to end, And I had completed a 3 week Sound Healing training just a few months prior, so my rational mind told me it wasn’t such a wise idea…
Yet I could almost hear my heart say “Yes! Sign up, do it!“
In the past few years I’ve gotten better at listening to my heart. It always guides me to wonderful people and places and this was no exception.
So I booked my space on this 5 day intensive Sound Healing Program with Natalie at the Inner Sanctum and I am so happy I did.
Natalie’s message in the WatsApp group I am part of said:
One week immersive for anyone who wishes to connect on a deeper level with sound, frequency, and vibration. Sound is the most ancient tool used to harmonise, balance, and restore health to the body, to the earth, even to the cosmos. To understand frequency is the key to understanding the universe
This immersive offers a chance to: Connect to yourself in a deep way Understand the healing powers of sound Learn how to heal and harmonise yourself Learn to create healing soundscapes Get hands on with a variety of instruments Deep dive into frequency and vibration Learn to use your voice as a healing tool
Areas of learning:
Sound Alchemy Theory
Frequency of Emotion
Crystal and Tibetan Bowls
Chimes, flutes, bells, shakers
INCLUDES: 4 Sound Alchemy sessions Reading/listening resources Help curating your sound toolkit Feel free to ask any questions! Much love
Hopefully, you now know why I wanted to join the course as soon as I read the outline, or perhaps not everyone shares my excitement for Sound and it’s healing powers. If you’re still reading you most probably have at least a little interest.
I hadn’t met Natalie before, but I had full trust that she’d be a great teacher and I am happy to confirm that she is.
I wrote to Natalie to express my interest but didn’t book until the last minute and her patience while we exchanged messages was very encouraging.
Natalie is authentic, well intentioned and knowledgeable which makes for a great teacher.
She created a beautiful container where we could learn and play together and I am so grateful for that.
The course was a good mix of theoretical information, group practice and time for each one of us to share what we had learnt.
The course took place in her home “The inner Sanctum”, in Jaibalito – Lake Atitlan.
Part of the magic of the experience was spending time in that space every day.
I won’t share about what we learnt in detail as that doesn’t seem fair but if you look at the course outline above, you can get a good idea of what was covered during the course.
There were 2 other participants in the course and it was a joy to get to know them.
Julio is from Guatemala and Soraya is from Switzerland and both their presence was a blessing. I loved listening to their reflections and receive their medicine as well as sharing mine with them.
Gracias a los 2 🙂
Practice makes perfect
I no longer strive for perfection, but I do believe that practice is essential to develop our abilities in anything.
I particuarly loved being able to explore using different instruments, some of which I had already connected at the last training I did and some of which were completely new to me.
Having the space to offer 2 sound Healing Sessions (1 ‘private’ and one for Julio, Soraya and Natalie) was also a beautiful way to give back and discover that I am ready to offer Sound Healing Sessions.
Having said that, I recorded the 2 sessions on my phone and I’m sharing them here for anyone who’d like to listen.
The sound is not exactly high quality but if you listen with earphones and an open heart you may be able to enjoy it and relax.
Although the course was focused on Sound Healing, I recognised that as with every course I’ve taken, I have learnt a lot about myself and about the power of coming together in a circle.
If you are interested in offering safe and inclusive spaces, our upcoming Online Facilitator Training may be of interest.

Thank you for reading and Thank you for your interest in the Healing Arts
Love and blessings to All
One thought on “Sound Alchemy Immersive Training”
Wow what a beautiful account of our time together at the lake 🌺
I’m so eternally grateful for this experience with you and the rest of the group. It was as much a learning experience for me as it was for you. I feel I’ve made three true friends out of this experience and so happy that there are three more Sound Alchemists walking this planet spreading healing vibrations 🌻
So much love to you ❤️
