WHY IS TRAINING NECESSARY?
Right now we see sound healing gaining A LOT of traction in the news, sound healing is EVERYWHERE. Throw a rock and you’ll hit a sound healer.
YES, it is relatively easy to buy a curated set a bowls and start playing, BUT, their is a growing danger of a lot of inexperienced, untrained people administering sounds without knowing the impact they are having on their students and we are seeing A LOT of negative feedback.
AND WHY WE NEED YOU

Of that number, only 41% of adults with a mental illness received mental health services in the past year.

Melissa's sound meditation training was very informative, technical & hands-on. The intimate class size really allowed us all to work closely together & get in playtime. Melissa is a great instructor, which is not always true of performers, Melissa applies thoughtful intention with technical info & her extensive experience for all of us to benefit from. I look forward to more training with her & highly recommend her course for whatever you may be seeking to do with it.

I began Melissa’s Sound Healing 101 knowing nothing and I finished with a firm basic knowledge. Melissa’s enthusiasm and attention to each student’s learning process was perfect. I will be attending her next level class.

I can honestly say I felt more like ‘myself’ in one day in your training in Berkeley than I have my entire 30 years to date. I am incredibly excited for this new chapter and to learn from amazing healers, like Melissa. She tirelessly answered questions, provided one on one feedback, and handled a room full of insatiable, curious learners with grace. I feel ready and able to provide sound healing to my friends and family and highly recommend the training, without a doubt, the best thing I've done for myself in years.
