The structure of the education
The education is based on blocks of 7-day courses, where there are a maximum of 25 participants in each course. All week courses have the same structure, taking into account the needs and level of the participants. You sign up for one week at a time and plan how quickly you want to take the training. After a minimum of four week courses, you can choose to take the exam.
Homework between the weekly courses: mutual sound therapy, group work with each other/guinea pigs. We have a wonderful international network building up online because of the online part of this education (other courses).
Exams take place on an ongoing basis.
Prerequisite for taking the exam: 4 week courses, a film with excerpts from your sound scanning and or free singing by the client are sent to email@example.com, 30 documented cases, answers to evaluative questions are sent in print.
Examiners: Jytte Johansen; Lars Muhl and Githa Ben-David. The censors look at assignments, films and cases and come to the conclusion: passed or failed.
If you do not pass (but have 30 cases), you get the opportunity to make a new film/assignment. Emphasis is placed on you showing: the method, orderliness, care, presence, dedication and precision. When handing out exam papers, you receive the examiners’ written response/recommendation.
Introduction to the education
The basis for Githa Ben-David’s education in Vocal Sound Therapy is based on her books, 34 years of practical work, as well as the experiences her students/sound healing groups/previous educational teams over the years have contributed and still contribute.
The education is based on devotion to and unfolding of the individual person’s natural voice, ‘The Note from Heaven’, which you can read more about in the book ‘The Note from Heaven’/’The Ultimate Book on Vocal Sound Healing’ (published 2022). The students unfold the true potential of their voice and experience themselves connected to a field of Oneness, where past, future and present are united. In this field, trauma can be resolved. Each participant redeems the healing qualities of their gift of voice. There are not existing two voices alike. We work from a method where play and seriousness support the process in a fine balance, and where truth as a considered response is paramount.
