Tibetan Bowl Sound Healing School


Sound Healing

Certification Program & Distance Learning Option


Programs Available:

Advanced Certification Process is a step-by-step process. It includes a series of  online videos and accompanying material that represent 4 live hands on workshops. Each workshop introduces increasingly advanced levels of training. This permits students to learn the material at their own pace without the added expense incurred by travel, but we do negotiate a time-frame for completion of work.  The videos can be viewed repeatedly to thoroughly integrate the material. You will explore the extraordinary world of the Tibetan bowl family of instruments, their harmonics and learn to conduct sound healing sessions. The Certification Course demands substantial time and practice, just as if you were in a hands- on class. You will be required to do the same practice sessions, logs, readings as on site students plus make a few videos so I can see your work and provide feedbackduring our personal mentoring sessions.  But you will be a well trained sound healing practitioner when you finish and be part of our referral network. 

If this is too rigorous for you, CLICK HERE to see the Non- Certification section.

Please read carefully. This process takes time and dedication. We train you to be effective healing practitioners. There is a lot to learn and do and you need to devote the time to the work that it and you deserve:. Upon Completion students will receive a certificate and be placed on our directory for referrals.

Detailed Description of Steps:

Workshop edition -Home Study Course, Ancient Sounds for a New Age eBook

This prerequisite course contains an ebook,an online dvd and MP3.. Students take a few months to work through the instructional material and keep a log of their practice sessions to bring to the Intro 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 hoe study course documented simple practice sessions to qualify for the 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 an eleven 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."

-Kathy- BC


"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."

-Tanya, CA


Advanced Workshops 1-3: Each workshop builds on the information of the previous one.

"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."

INSTRUMENT COSTS: depend on what you might already have and your goals. In general you will need a good set of tingshas, ($65) a sets of ganta/dorjes ($45-$110) )and 9-11 singing bowls.(Some people want to be full sound healing practitioners, others want only to introduce some sound into a practice they already have ( ie massage etc). To begin you can certainly work with a minimum of 5 bowls by moving them around but that is not ideal and you can build your collection over time. (We provide highest quality, CERTIFIED ANCIENT bowls to our students and help you to select those needed for the layouts we teach).. If you intend to take this course, please do NOT to go and purchase bowls without first contacting me to make sure your instruments will work for the material we teach.
