9ways is currently focused on training the Sound Worker of tomorrow. If you desire to rise above the mundane, and wish to tread in the footsteps of those that go about seeking the aim or purpose of Wisdom, give serious attention to our programs.
The enormous popularity of working with Sound has taken the term ‘sound healing’ mainstream, and a day does not go by where people are not talking about sound immersions, gong baths, kirtans, and a host of sound healing events promoted on social media. With this popularity comes interest, and with interest comes the responsibility of gaining accurate and useful information in becoming proficient in the use of sound tools, developing an effective skilll-set, and knowing how to assess and demonstrate proficiency; to be perfumed with the cultural Wisdom and traditional uses.
This hands on approach is necessary in developing confidence, and learning how the cultures worked with these sound tools in a traditional manner, rounds out an effective learning process that will propel you in grasping the subject material. High academic standards are critical, and being mentored by experienced sound workers is the best way to start training in a serious manner.
" You must accept the Truth from whatever source it comes" . . . Maimonides
