Sound Healing Academy
Discover Your Gifts Through Sound
December 11 - 15, 2024
The Yoga Barn in Ubud, Bali
Sound Healing is a profound and powerful experience of sound and vibrational frequency which combines instrumental live music, pure natural sound, vocal activation, ancient mantras & soulful voices. Sound has been utilised in various cultures for thousands of years as a tool for the body, mind and spirit of a person for harmony and healing.
Punnu Wasu's Sound Healing training offers a deep immersion into the world of sound, devotion, music as a way of healing and to express yourself through music. The course contains both learning through receiving various sound healing modalities and exploring them through guided practice by Punnu's playful and empowering teaching style supported by other highly qualified and professional musician teachers. Participants are guided into silence through meditation, receive sound immersion, and thereafter go into the practice of exploring the voice and different instruments as sound healing tools.
Whether you are looking to simply learn about sound healing, how to incorporate it into your offerings, or if you have the ambition to begin hosting your own sound baths, Punnu invites you to join him to discover yourself and your gifts through sound.
The practical learning experience is supported by lectures about the introduced modalities and their foundation. The content of the workshop draws from a rich array of multi-faceted self-healing approaches of different cultures, including devotional mantra singing, Tibetan sound bowls and gongs (in certain locations around the world), various sound healing instruments, Nada Yoga (yoga of sound), active meditation practice, toning and overtone singing among others.

I’ve been present at many of Punnu's sound baths over the years and I’ll keep coming back. The vibrations and healing sensations he creates with his instruments and soulful voice are from another world. He is truly amazing! Wonderful experience for the mind and soul... never expected music can be such a strong power to heal. It's always one of my highlights when travelling to Bali for receiving a session or joining as a student... feeling blessed with Punnu and his musician friends. I highly recommend his sound healing events and training to anyone interested!
