"The Frequency of Everything"
David Gibson

Once we know the frequency of everything we will be able to heal every disease, and wlll be able to access higher states of consciousness at will.

David shares discuss the multidimensional frequency hierarchy found in all living organisms: Frequencies, Timbres (combinations of frequencies), Musical Intervals and Chords (combinations of frequencies or timbres), Music (combinations of frequencies, timbres, musical intervals, chords -- and time), and Energy (which has all levels of vibration within it). He then will talk about how all of these different levels of vibration manifest within Love, the Soul and Spirit

We will also experience these frequencies as we use Sound to resonate stronger energetic resonant fields of Gratitude, Love and Joy.

“Quantifying Sound Healing”
Eileen McKusick

Those of us who are healers with sound see outcomes, we observe people relaxing, becoming more present and aware, achieving greater degrees of freedom. But what exactly is taking place in the body that brings about this response? And is there a way to quantify it?

Eileen Day McKusick has spent the last 20 years bouncing sound like sonar off the human body and the atmosphere around it and listening to what comes back. Her research has yielded both a profoundly powerful therapeutic treatment she calls Biofield Tuning, as well as a very specific structure of what appears to be mind and memory in the diffuse magnetic field around the body.

In this talk, Eileen will share data from her various experiments with different technologies along with some hypotheses on the mechanics of mind/body/sound interactions.

"Sangha - Spoken Word, Songs and Light Language of Healing"
Gwen Jensen

You are invited to participate in the Kundalini Song celebration and transmission. Gwen Jensen channels an ongoing transmission of deep inner awareness and healing.

This is a genuine transmission of spirit coming in through spoken word, songs and light languages of healing. Natural, yet profound purification and expanded levels of consciousness are revealed, simultaneously awakening the unique medicine of each participant. Opportunity to access the infinite realms within you is greatly heightened.

Using sound and song the mind entrains into alpha and theta states. Together we cross through the veils that blind us and sit in the field where deep meditation, sweet ecstasy and personal insight can arise.

We gather together in Sangha to create a group field, a vortex where the energetics are amplified, healing opportunity is strengthened and your connection to your higher/god self opens directly. Ignite your intuition!

Participants are invited to tone and explore the field while Gwen’s transmission continues, as a way to enhance & support the vibratory frequency she offers. This is an opportunity to be present to the universal transmission of love, connection and expanded awareness in ways that support all.

"Sacred Kirtan"
Lakshmi Devi

Kirtan is a form of ancient chanting, often in a call and response form, and often in the ancient sacred language of sanskrit. Its a form of singing and praying to the dieties, with the use of sacred language and melodies, to clear karma, mental and emotional activity and cultivate devotion and love in the heart. It is a wonderful, rich, enlivening practice that can cultivate deep and ecstatic states of being. Kirtan is as much about the silence in between the music as the music and singing itself. We together generate the opportunity to rest in the silent, profound presence that we cultivate through our soaring, ecstatic songs.

"Harmonics and the Human Chakra Systems"
Randy Masters

Globe Institute Instructor, Composer, Sound Healer and Sacred Scientist, Randy Masters, PH.D, will present a well tuned view of our evolving human chakra system and it's importance to coherent, proactive and healthy living and functioning. Those who might think that Chakras "are like so yesterday" are in for a surprise. Breakdowns in our full Chakra functioning can show up as breakdowns in our healthy wiring on the physical, emotional, mental and psychic levels and result in dis-ease. We were designed to be well tuned transceivers - receiving and transmitting in a flow with Creation.

Randy will show how certain tools such as Sound Tools, Sacred Numbers, Gemstones and Colors can help us stay in our sweet spot of well being and proactively lean into to our evolutionary advancement. Randy will explain why there are so many different approaches to the chakras that don't seem to agree. Some of the demonstrated frequencies will be based on an in depth study of the World Grid Pyramidal System synthesizing both Ancient and Contemporary wisdom and findings. Our chakra system is evolving and we have the opportunity to evolve more gracefully with it and become not just better, healthier and more loving Earth dwellers but Galactic and Divine Humans. Special tuning forks will be played as a sonic chakra offering. Stay tuned for further adventures!

*Gongster's Sound treatment is a personal journey that touches the delicate Strings of our soul.

*When we are in harmony, our health returns, our light shines, we become centered, and awake. Raising our consciousness here on earth and dimensions beyond

*Gongster IS NOT about Kundalini Gong because we DO NOT play to a” physical" yoga practice and there is no crashing or banging.

BIO of Gongster: http://www.gongster.com/About-Lisa.html

The sound healing of the Gong uses vibration & sound that enters every cell of the body for healing and release. These frequencies bring together the 5 senses, elevating us above them.

Our bodies are energy, our organs operate at a certain frequency. The gongs vibration will entrain to what is needed for optima health, and remove toxins that do not belong.

We are going from our cultures stigma of, no pain no gain; thinking and doing, and entering a place of Feeling and Being. This is where all the healing takes place. Our bodies are amazing healers when we stay out of the way. Best of all we get to Relax, Reset, Feel, Be and Belong!

"Tomatis, Listening Programs and the "Sonic Birth"
Elizabeth Grambsch

Dr. Alfred Tomatis launched the field of psychoacoustics with his pioneering and ground breaking discoveries. He was the first to recognize the cybernetic relationship between the ear and the voice - -called the Tomatis Effect - -and the relationship between the vestibular system and the body - -which led to his use of bone conducted sound to help brain and body integration. He was the first researcher to uncover the energizing effect of high frequency sounds to improve alertness, attentiveness and creativity and the importance of developing a dominant ear to control language and musicality.

Through his research he came to understand that babies hear the high frequencies in the womb through bone conduction and when they are born they go through a complex process of engaging and integrating their first experience with air conduction sound. He called this a “sonic birth”. He invented The Electronic Ear - - psychoacoustically modified music -- and developed a program with it called The Tomatis Method to help people with many previously inaccessible developmental, language and learning difficulties. Tomatis was also well known for his ability to help musicians, singers and actors with their musical and vocal productions (e.g. Maria Callas, Gerard Depardieu).

In addition to a brief history of Dr. Tomatis’s work and key concepts this presentation will cover prenatal listening, the impact of birth interventions on auditory processing, the healthy development of listening and the auditory-psychophysiological effects on the conscious ear from early childhood experiences. Special emphasis will be given to Tomatis’ concept of the “sonic birth” - -the complex process the baby goes through to engage and integrate their first experience with air conducted sound. Understanding Tomatis’ foundational work helps in designing complementary sound healing sessions.

"SENSORIUM LSV II – VIBRATIONAL THERAPY SYSTEM"

A multi-media presentation utilizing slides, wall-charts and equipment that discusses the features and benefits of the new Sensorium LSV II sensory interface and vibrational therapy system and demonstrations of its capabilities. 
Don will be presenting the history, current status and latest discoveries in the field of vibrational therapy and how the new VibraSound Sensorium LSV II represents the latest, most advanced embodiment of this technology.

We'll discuss the following:

  • The Absolute Scale of Relative Cosmic Reality – the vibrational spectrum.
  • The difference between various forms of vibration
  • The history and current status of the vibrational therapy field
  • The connection between consciousness and the senses
  • The development of sensory interface devices
  • Sensory Resonance – the ultimate state of mind
  • The Sensorium LSV II –features, applications and demonstration
  • Dimensionalizing and restoring the transformative effects of music
  • Direct versus indirect forms of quantum biofeedback
  • The science of Automata and how it forms the geometry of sound

Light and sound devices have been around since the beginning of the 20th century but didn’t gain scientific acceptance until 1950 when the first clinical version appeared.  Since that time many companies have come and gone, with a few making it through to the current day.  However, the technology hasn’t changed that much.  In 1997 InnerSense launched the first light and sound device that included a third channel for vibrotactile vibration in addition to music modulation of the lights.  It, along with the VibraSound suite of vibrotactile platforms has been considered state of art in that field for almost 20 years. 

We are now please to announce the release of our latest release version that will take this form of technology to the next level.  Instead of a light and sound device, the new Sensorium LSV II is the basis of a fully functional vibrational therapy system.  It can generate, coordinate and synchronized vibrations from almost any form of vibration like pulsed light, sound frequencies, vibrotactile vibrations, music, color, electromagnetic coils, electro-stimulus devices, plasma tubes and more...into a manually operated or pre-programmed session of any length. 

The Sensorium LSV II is constructed from the highest-grade components for the ultimate purity of signal and reliability for professional use.  It has many unique features never before available in such systems and takes the pressure of running many devices at the same time off of the operator so that they can focus on their interaction with the client, or simply walk away and allow the system to fun its full course without interruption.  It allows full control by the operator or user in real time.  Sessions are programmable, storable and sharable. 

This presentation will be an overview of this system along with a demonstration to the entire audience of its power and capabilities.  Please join us for an experience of the latest generation of the science and technology of vibrational therapy.

Scott Huckabay


Scott Huckabay's vibrational love melodies shine through invisible sound frequencies to create a sensory landscape of living bliss. Within each unique, inspirational live stage transformance, Scott presents a new level of how the guitar can be played. He is a very creative, passionate, rhythmic, high energy, one man band performer, developing complex and energetic world tribal progressions on his alternately tuned guitar, 'Oceana' that resonate with the heart chakra. Scott's musical alchemy turns sound into gold through electrifying inner-dimensional sound explorations that can be experienced in your body that uplifts the hearts of humanity. He is truly a show stopper that leave the audience wanting more. Come experience the sound of pure presence
For more info: www.scotthuckabay.com

Guitar Avatar, Scott Huckabay creates a contemporary, shamanistic musical style, inspiring trance states resonant with the heart chakra, creating sounds in an ancient frequency that induces feelings of love and healing.

Scott's act is reminiscent of transcended master Michael Hedges meets Jimi Hendrix meets Ravi Shankar. He is a very rhythmic live looping performer, developing complex and energetic tribal progressions on his alternately tuned guitar. He takes the audience by surprise, leading them through dancing and joyous celebration into the realm of his celestial worship – the courtyard of the Divine. Various guitar tools assist in the journey of this vision caster from the land of Mu and his six stringed instrument of divination.

Each prayformance slowly brings the audience into his swirling, celebrating dance. And then he takes them to new heights - his love and adoration of the Great Spirit.

People often cry and or have profound life changing experiences at his performances, for the sheer power of the love in his song melts away their bitter sorrows, opening their hearts in this radiant love and joy. Scott once played inside the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt for whole earth healing. Scott Huckabay is rapidly gaining widespread recognition as the “Universal Guitarist for the Spiritual Renaissance.”

Scott never played guitar before a motorcycle accident left him partially paralyzed. His life dramatically changed after making a pact with God/Creator the moment before he hit the highway crashing at high speed. He woke up from being unconscious with a guitar mysteriously laid by his feet. As Scott touched the instrument, music began streaming through him. Experimenting like no guitarist would learn or imagine, Scott hit, kicked, scraped, and shook the instrument all over to pioneer novel ways to play the music he heard inside. Strumming, picking, and bowing the strings were used for his own accompaniment. The ensuing year, for his own healing and musical mastery, he communed daily with dolphins and whales in Hawaii, listening and learning their hydro-sonic secrets. His guitar became a physical extension, therapeutic invention, and spiritual blessing for Scott and civilization.

"Sound and Science - New Directions in Sound Therapy"
Jennifer Catalano

Sound therapy can be viewed as a set of solutions for problems, and it is important to understand which sound solutions match which specific problems. Understanding the system of matches will help expand the effectiveness and success of therapy. Creativity, current literature, and experimentation are discussed as ways of building a bridge to the future.

Like other therapies, sound therapy has effectiveness and limitations depending on the conditions under which it is administered. The current state of mainstream medicine is that different classes of medicines have different efficacy rates depending on the disease they intend to cure. Various ancient stories claim healing through that which is sacred. The connections between the sacred, the scientific, and sound can lead to new directions in effective therapy.

"Deep States of Consciousness, Transmuting Emotions and Shifting Energy"
Silvina Vergara

In this workshop we are going to learn different techniques for self care and self-healing through sound. Utilizing breathing techniques, stress management and the power of human voice, as our main tools.

We are going to work with the Pineal and Pituitary Glands, accessing deep states of awareness incorporating some information about the importance of working with these centers located in our brain. The brain functions with oxygen. It consumes oxygen in large quantities. If we increase the level of oxygenation within the brain itself there is an increase in brain function and potential.
Learning deep states of consciousness opens us up to the world of subconscious mind where we can create our reality from a different space.

During the presentation we are going to experience how Sound healing can change our emotional states, our perception and Spiritual awareness.

We will have the opportunity to experience and enjoy the soothing healing voice and transmissions through Silvina's voice. Learn specific and easy to use techniques for accessing higher spiritual awareness. Reawaken our inner wisdom, cultivate profound awareness and gain valuable tools in this transformational session.

Silvina Vergara channels melodies that transport and guide participants on a healing soul journey. Her work emphasizes the importance of accessing deep states of consciousness to transform emotions, change perceptions, and create new realities. She has xx years of experience in this field and had hosted workshops at the San Frnacisco General Hospital, SF Living Expo, and many more.

"Kototama: Cosmology of Sound and the Electromagnetism of Language"
Bonnie Johnstone

Kototama, sacred sound or “word spirits,” is an ancient Japanese cosmology and practice arising out of the Shinto tradition and central to Aikido. It is based on the creative principle of vibration. Its principles describe the energetics of sounds and the electromagnetism of language. Vowels are key and are considered the mother sounds. Consonants are the father sounds. These teachings can be applied to any language, bringing new depth and dimension to sacred languaging and our conscious use of sound, as well as our spiritual practices.

"Healing Sounds - Two as One"
ANIINA (Jovani & Karina)

ANIINA (Jovani & Karina) bring expansiveness, aliveness & qualities of light through sound. Most of us are familiar with the power of sound and it’s potential to impact our being. What ANIINA communicates during a sonic journey, is merely a response to what is alive moment to moment; to what is happening right now in space-time. That energy which arises from a spontaneous sensibility, is then transmitted via messages within the vibrations. The vibrations move toward an indescribable mystery, which can always be felt, yet is rarely understood.

Following heart and intuition, ANIINA strives to empower & heal by shifting energy, thereby providing more chi=wellness. Come experience how sound healing can benefit you. Receive sound harmonics from the angelic realm, which speaks to cellular molecular structures in the human body. These sound harmonics guide causal energy of the human heart & activate sound waves in the human brain.

Participants are invited to lie on the floor for the duration. Please bring a mat and or blanket for your comfort.

"The Kaballah, Tree of Life, and Sacred Chant -
Creating Vibratory Chanting for the Elevation of Consciousness"
Rabbi Steven Fisdel

Rabbi Steven Fisdel, a classical kabbalist and spiritual counselor, will be presenting an interactive demonstration on the use of sacred chant to facilitate ones access to higher states of consciousness.

In the Kabbalah, the Jewish mystic tradition, meditative practice involves chanting as the primary way of creating a vibratory carrier wave designed to elevate consciousness. Intention sets the direction of a meditation and the intonation of sacred sound patterns carries ones focused consciousness to higher realms of experience and knowledge of Self. Reaching these levels opens the doors of intuition, expanded awareness and spiritual insight.

Rabbi Fisdel will be taking participants up the through the Tree of Life to connect ones psycho-emotional reality with the spiritual platform that supports it through a series of specific chants. The objective of this process will be to illustrate the use of sacred chant as the vehicle for gaining information that is directly applicable to personal growth.
