April Conduit Bowls.jpg

Singing Bowls of the Himalayas: Circles of Sacred Sound is a foundational examination into one of the most widely used sound tools in meditation, sound healing, mindfulness techniques and personal transformation. Their popularity is at an all time high, people draw deep connections with these instruments, but finding accurate information is a daunting task, much less finding a mentoring program that can create progressive skill sets enabling one to sink deep roots into the experience of working with them. Students are encouraged to bring their own bowls, or ones will be provided for student use. The focus of this workshop is built upon these preliminary steps:

• Selecting and evaluating Singing Bowls, in order to make the best buying decision so your not wasting money on Singing Bowls you lose interest in. This includes learning how the people of the Himalayas evaluate and choose them, and what types of Bowls are the most effective in western methods of sound therapy. Included in this aspect of the program is a video from Mitch’s most recent field studies...

Red Kachina 420 NEW.jpg

A rare outside or in this case 'inside' performance of the latest tonal soundscape composed by the Secret Gong Orchestra.

Live in the Widow Jane Mine with the Gong collections of Nancy Aleo, Mitch Nur, Ricarda O'Conner, Sam Weng, and Janet Young.

Within the indigenous Pueblo cultures of the American Southwest the Kachina represents ancestral spirits or the person who represents a Kachina spirit in ceremonial dances. Depending upon culture, the Kachina can represent the immortal beings that bring rain, control other aspects of the natural world and society, and act as messengers between humans and the spirit world.

In this presentation by the Secret Gong Orchestra, the Gong is being seen as the tonal messenger to the spirit world. An ambient soundscape with textural overlays, with dynamic overtures of harmonic nuances, and far reaching powerful energetic force.

Hopi legend tells the story of the Twins, symbolic guardian energies of the North and South poles of planet Earth. A Hopi prophesy tells the...

T E L O S 420.jpg

This program is congruent with RECHERCHE, and is an element in the 9ways transmission of Spiritual Harmonic Knowledge. Correspondingly, this is also a Silent Retreat format.

Both TELOS and RECHERCHE are stand alone programs showcasing sacred sound tools, their stories and the philosophy surrounding them. Both programs taken together, offer the student a greater perspective. Both programs are different, but follow the Path to understanding one of the oldest forms of Wisdom - Spiritual Harmonic Knowledge. Nearly every great teacher in antiquity was also a musician. People like Pythagoras, or Avicenna were polymaths, and music played immense roles in their lives. It was Music and Art that brought the West out of the Dark Ages, and it is through music that the Babylonians saw true harmony in the universe, with the responsibility of training the musicians at that time as being designated to the Chaldean priesthood.

Each program in the Spiritual Harmonic Knowledge series features different esoteric sound tools....

Harmonic Therapy is a non invasive, translational based treatment, where the direct, live, presentation of indigenous sound, rhythm, and melody is used within a therapeutic relationship to address physical, emotional, cognitive, and societal needs of individuals. Employing the over and undertones of sound through the use of transcultural instruments, they allow the listener an enhanced firsthand experience, which can produce extraordinary states of consciousness; and can initiate the Relaxation Response. Sessions can also lead to a higher sense of self, and create an entry point for self discovery.

Session Times: 11am, 2pm, 3:30pm, 5pm, 7:30pm

Circles of Wisdom, 90 Main St., Andover, MA 01810 • 781-474-8010 • Website

Sonic Theology NEW SC.jpeg

Sonic Theology is the metaphysics of sound, and features an examination of Western, Mid Eastern, and Far Eastern theoretical approaches to Sound Therapy. A 2500 year analysis of the footprints of Sound Therapy, and beyond. One of the power-points features over 60 frames of information alone; and there are 5 power-points. We even have a movie night! Sonic Theology is everything missing from all sound healing programs presented in the West, and may very well be the most thorough historical investigation on the subject ever presented. Don't be fooled into thinking that the western model of Sound Therapy is important, because it is based on much older systems outside the Greek model. This program is limited to just 11 new students to insure an intimate learning environment. Discover what Pythagoras brought to Crotana from India, why is the House of Wisdom important, follow the thread from Gobustan to Anatolia, and discover ancient systems that are useful today. This program explains everything, to the point, that you will feel you have previously been taught nothing. Unless YOU...

Sonic Theology Science of Sound Master 420.jpg

Distinctions in understanding the Science of Sound Therapy, presented in a clear transmission. This program examines all the latest information drawn from cognitive neuroscience, brain studies, psychology, music therapy, acoustical physics, wave phenomena, behavioral neurology, harmonic theory, understanding musical terminology, and more. This is the how and why sound influences the mind-body complex. This program goes far beyond the current 'talking points' found in most sound healing studies; and stretches the boundaries on how to train the Sound Therapist of tomorrow.

We are not an instrument based program like so many training's that are offered worldwide; and we see the student as the instrument that requires tuning. Teaching sound therapy with instruments is simply musical instrument lessons disguised as theory, this approach leaves the student unprepared for dealing with many issues including trauma. Sound is the motivator behind the transformation of consciousness, and this is the basis of our training protocol.

Our program is considered a college level...
