Home tutorial course, Ancient Sounds for a New Age is the pre-requisite for attending the hands on workshops.
This course contains an ebook, dvd and cd. Students take a few months to work through the instructional material and keep a log of their practice sessions and bring the log to the workshop.
Two day Introductory Workshop
(15 hours) offered in the San Diego, Ca. area three times a year (January & June & October ). All workshop participants will have completed the tutorial materials and documented practice sessions to qualify for this therapeutic hands-on workshop. The workshop will build on the information provided in the home study course and introduce Basic Energy and Meditation Techniques. Upon completion of the workshop students will have conducted one introductory level healing session composed of Tingsha diagnosis, Ganta & Dorje energy simulation and a nine bowl matrix layout.
"While I had watched the DVD on several occasions, it was through the hands on weekend workshop that I could really begin to experience and appreciate the subtleties of striking the bowls around the head region in a softer and gentle manner, learn the importance of working with breath in sustained singing of a bowl, and become aware of the tingshaw nuances and the intricacies of the ganta. The workshop allows for all of this and so much more and is a very worthwhile endeavor to gaining mastery in the use of the instruments for sound healing."
"I just wanted to express how phenomenal your beginning weekend workshop was. I had bought and studied with the home course, but getting to work hands-on with the bowls, tingshaws, ganta & dorje with your mentoring was so valuable. There are so many subtleties to learn to really be able to know and understand the instruments and this can only be achieved by learning first-hand by a qualified instructor willing to share their knowledge. What a blessing that I have found that in you!
I left the workshop feeling like I had such a better knowledge of the sacred instruments and their usage. There is no substitution to being able to work on other students in groups and with partners in an environment of learning. Now, I feel that I can use my knowledge gained this weekend and partner that with the home study course to practice with confidence. I look forward to continuing my education at the Tibetan Bowl School."
Advanced Workshops areoffered once per year . Each workshop builds on the information of the previous one. Each level will provide 15-18 hours of class time plus student practice which is included in the total 200 hours required .
"The class was wonderful! I loved it and got so much out of it. The material was exactly what I needed -- the next level of complexity to begin to wrap myself around.. to experience its unfolding. Very exciting! And very inspiring. A wonderful group of people, too. And I loved the way you and Richard worked together -- very comfortable. It added a lot to have both perspectives and to witness such a lovely easy working relationship."
