  From a participant in last year's conference;

I have just returned from the Omega Center where I was honored to attend the Sound and Healing Symposium. I was blown away by the level of commitment of those who attended and those who did the offering. Hats off to Zacciah Blackburn, John Beaulieu, Mitchell Gaynor and the others for their contribution to this field of study and healing. Not only was there a remarkable amount of information and participation but also the level of commitment on the part of the attendees. They actively seeked other healers to network with and connect to.  ....please continue... to connect and participate in a workshop/symposium of this quality..... Thanks you and be Blessed with the know!

 The Art and Science of Healing with Rhythm

Experience the power of rhythm. Jeff Strong will guide you on a journey into ancient rhythmic healing practices from around the world and demonstrate how these practices are being used today for a variety of conditions. You will explore the three universal traditional rhythm practices and feel the power of these techniques for yourself:

 •Experience how the shamanic rhythm can aid not only mediation but also problem-solving and creativity
 •Feel the stress-reducing and synchronizing power of the rhythm circle
 •Explore the deeply transforming effects of rhythm-healing.

By explaining the science behind these practices, Jeff will demystify the core mechanisms involved in their power and show you how you can employ therapeutic rhythm to improve your life.
