Shamanic Sound Healing: The 5-Month Series at Hidden Lake

With Dr. Lauri Shainsky, Ph.D. 

Offered by LightSong School of 21st Century Shamanism and Energy Medicine 

Saturdays 10 am-4 pm at Hidden Lake Retreat

Feb 2, Mar 9, April 13, May 11, June 22

Cost: $395/ $250* if you are a returning student (have taken the 5-month or 10-week course with me before).

This course is based on the fundamental philosophy that intentional, spirit-guided sound makes shamanism more potent and powerful, following in the footsteps of ancient shamanism. As Bradford Keeney once said, “No song, no shaman”. 

Many of us received messages at an early age that quieted our voice, this course helps erase those programs, setting us on a powerful journey of strengthening our vocal expression. This serves our shamanism, as well as all other aspects of our vocal life. 

We experience more deeply how to channel the vibrations of the divine, of spirit, through us, through sound, attuning and learning from the wisdom encoded in that sound. We work with singing bowls, our drums and rattles, with a heightened awareness of how their sounds and the spirits that ride those sounds into ordinary reality, set our healing intentions into motion. 

Together in a sacred, warm-hearted safe circle we will: 

Examine and experience how catalytic and coherent sounds facilitate extraction and filling processes in shamanic healing; 

Clear blockages and impediments to our being the Hollow bone, the clear and open channel to benevolent compassionate spirits; 

Discover more potently our connections with spirits and how we can be their conduit of power and wisdom needed by ourselves, others, the Earth.  

The framework and style of this course is shamanic, therapeutic, and non-hierarchical. You bring your top-of-the-mind, deep-in-the-heart issues you are currently work on, and we apply the techniques we learn to heal and transform and manifest the highest outcomes for these topics. We have the opportunity that a small group brings to have insightful honest discussions about what we need, how we noticed our healing exercises worked, and hypothesize about how to apply our methods to others and everyday life. 

Learning and healing comes through working in pairs and in the larger group practicing sound healing techniques, journeying for information, doing ceremonies for enhancing our personal vibration and states of consciousness. 

Journeying skills are required. *People who have taken this course before can repeat this course at a discount; new material will be included each week. 

Course format: 5 6-hour sessions Saturdays 

Cost: $395/ $250*if you are a returning student (have taken the 5-month or 10-week course with me before). Please register online by January 28 and make a deposit or full payment by the first day of class (check or paypal); If a deposit is made, one subsequent payment can be made by the 3rd class. 

This course is part of the LightSong School of 21st Century Shamanism curriculum and satisfies elective requirements for the advanced programs (LMT, Bachelors in Community Shamanism). 

This course is perfect for level 3 people, assisting them to remove blockages in their vocal expression of their regalia spirit. It will assist Level 2 people in adding more sound to their extraction and other fundamental shamanic healing processes.

Advanced Shamanic Sound Healing: Spring 5-Month Series 

With Shamanic Sound Healer and Instructor Lauri Shainsky 

 Offered by LightSong School of 21st Century Shamanism and Energy Medicine 

Begins Feb. 3rd 

Sundays 10 am-4 pm at Hidden Lake  

Feb. 3, March 10,April 14, May 19, June 23 

Cost: $395   

This course is a healing & learning adventure for those seeking advanced techniques in shamanism & sound healing. Deep experimentation and discussion are key components of this intimate course of inquiry. We allow ourselves the time and space to really work with a technique, then discuss, critique, refine. We hypothesize about how sound, spirit, and the universe works!  It is a study group and support circle wrapped in a refined, loving, fun shamanic sound curriculum. 

Together, we will cover how to use spirit-guided sound more potently in:  

energetic removal techniques—extract, remove, or transmute what blocks or impedes health, well-being and manifestation at physical, emotional, mental, spiritual levels; 

 Filling techniques—what to call in, and how to incorporate and activate high frequency qualities, aspects, energies, resources, support features to promote health, well-being and manifestation. 

 We specifically focus on refined learnings and teachings that explore how to use’  “energy field theory” in the creative application of sound, for doctoring the body, mind, soul. 

 Incorporating more Nature beings and cycles of nature into our healing practices will also be explored. 

This course is perfect for level 3 people, assisting them to remove blockages in their vocal expression of their regalia spirit. It will assist Level 2 people in adding more sound to their extraction and other fundamental shamanic healing processes. It  is a reflection of my overall philosophy that shamanism is made more powerful by sound, and sound healing is made more powerful by incorporating shamanism into it. And that it is everyone’s birthright to commune with compassionate spirits of the Divine Realms for healing self, others, Earth.

This course is part of the LightSong School of 21st Century Shamanism curriculum and satisfies elective requirements for the advanced programs (LMT, Bachelors in Community Shamanism).  

 Dates: Feb. 3, March 10, April 14, May 19, June 23 

Cost: $395 

Payment: Please register online by January 28 and make a deposit or full payment by the first day of class (check or paypal); If a deposit is made, one subsequent  payment can be made by the 3rd class.

Shamanic Sound Intensive Spring 2019

April 26-28 6:30 pm Friday -5 pm Sunday.

Cost: $485 residential/$300 commuting 

Students who have taken the Intensive before: $425 residential/$250 commuting

Facilitated by Dr. Lauri Shainsky, Shamanic Sound Healing Practitioner, Associate Teacher and Healer, LightSong School of  21st Century Shamanism, & Hidden Lake Retreat, Inc.  

This intensive designed to immerse people in healing with spirit-guided sound. Whether you are seeking to add sound to your toolbag of skills or to accomplish some healing, you will have the opportunity to be welcomed into a spirit-filled, safe container with other like-hearted people and explore the magic of shamanic sound. Healing and learning happen simultaneously.  Topics and processes are tailored to you, the participant, and to what is most relevant and pressing for you at this time. 

The Intensive is a reflection of my overall philosophy that shamanism is made more powerful by sound, and sound healing is made more powerful by incorporating shamanism into it. And that it is everyone’s birthright to commune with compassionate spirits of the Divine Realms for healing self, others, Earth.

This weekend course will help people: 

  • Expand their abilities to use their sacred voice for creating shifts in consciousness and well-being, and setting intentions into motion 
  • Be a clearer and more open channel for bringing power and wisdom to your life, the life of those around you, and to Earth using intentional vibration 
  • Connect more deeply with the spiritual realms and utilize the messages coming from these landscapes in Non-Ordinary Reality 
  • Be more open to receiving and transmitting healing sound & 
  • Bring more creative power and manifestation into their daily lives through sound & song 

This workshop is fully experiential and will facilitate your learning, your healing, and your expansion in shamanism and sound healing, and most importantly, in your Human Beingness. We will be doing dyads and triads, ceremony and exploration. This is a completely hands-on experience. Ceremony, initiations, good nourishing food, community, laughter and nature all contribute to your fulfillment through learning and healing. Journeying skills are highly recommended. 

My style of facilitation is spontaneous, spirit-directed according to what they notice about your needs, non-hierarchical, fun-loving, and supportive. 

New material will be presented so people who have attended past intensives will absolutely learn new things!!! This course is part of the LightSong School of 21st Century  Shamanism’s curriculum and satisfies elective requirements for the LightSong accredited advanced programs.
