Sound Wellness is Headed to Costa Rica!

June 21st to June 28th, 2020

Join us at the exquisite Heaven and Earth Sanctuary retreat centre for Sound Wellness Practitioner Training in COSTA RICA!

Imagine combining :

  • professional Sound Wellness practitioner training
  • filled with the vibrant life force energy in the heart of the Costa Rica jungle in a retreat centre built on sacred land, nestled by a river flowing from Mount Chirripo, the highest mountain in Costa Rica, the “land of eternal waters”
  • with fresh food prepared for you by their amazing chef ‘Maritza’
  • and the deep nurturing of healing sound.

If you are saying YES! to more than a couple of these, consider joining us for our professional Sound Wellness training in the heart of Costa Rica.

Learning and building your skills at the Sound Wellness retreat allows you to:

  • Focus on your practice with no distractions
  • Be fully cared for while you learn
  • Stay at a retreat centre that is consciously created sacred space with high vibration and care for the land
  • Be replenished by the vibrant life force energy of the Costa Rica rainforest and sacred mountains
  • Earn our competency certification to give you confidence in your skills to serve your clients.

Here is what Dixie Bennett, owner of Stillpoint Bodyworks in Calgary shared with us the day after she completed the three day Fundamentals in Healing with Sound and Music course:

“I’ve had brilliant experiences today with each and every one of my clients. So excited to use this and infuse more playfully with my clients!  My sessions were way deeper today.  All four are regular clients and they all enjoyed it. This has brought my play box up to a whole new level!”

Our program is fully approved by the Natural Health Practitioners of Canada Association. Those joining us from Canada who complete Level 2 Certification are welcome to apply for membership with NHPCA. This is a first for practitioners specializing in a sound modality!

Here is what Patricia Guillemin of Trinity Vibrational Healing shared following completing the Level 2.

“Once in a while the world will surprise us with an amazing opportunity. Over the past year and a half I have experienced such an opportunity. My journey through the Sound Wellness program with Sharon and Ed Carne at the helm has been nothing short of amazing. The training has been second to none and the trainers go to the ‘nth degree to ensure a solid background in the modality, use of tools as practitioner and client, and science behind the teachings. I feel blessed though to be taught by Ed and Sharon because they CARE deeply about the people taking their program. Honestly I have never experienced this level of an all-encompassing training. Not that I haven’t experienced other amazing programs, but this session and the past two have blown me away and far surpassed my expectations. I’m so much gratitude for the others who took the training with me.”
