Sound Healing Certification Level I: Online AND in-Person Experiential…
Want to receive your Sound Healing Certificate, but cannot commit to 8 days in person?
Want a deeper dive into the experience of healing sound as well?
We heard you! Sound Healing Level I Certificate Program will be Offered beginning in February 2014 as an Online and In-Person Course…. Details below…
Build A Solid Foundation in Sound Healing Therapy
Sound Healing Mastery with Kay Grace, CAEH, (See more about Kay at bottom of page) is a Sound Healing Practitioner Level I Certificate Program offering 10 2.5 hour online classes (LIVE webcasts), as well as a 3 full-day weekend retreat designed to build a solid foundation in vibrational or sound therapy.
In this groundbreaking series you will learn the art and science of sound healing, from how it works, to experiencing it through immersion. You will also learn to use the tools of Sound Healing, from focusing your intention to using Tibetan Singing Bowls, Tuning Forks, Crystals, Crystal Singing Bowls, Drums, Light and Color, sacred geometry, music and movement, and using your own Voice to heal as you practice both giving and receiving the healing power of sound.
Sound Healing is a form of energy medicine or vibrational therapy. Every living thing has a frequency or vibration. When we harness the power of these frequencies and add new ones with conscious intention, we create a positive, healing reaction, not only in the body, but also in the energy field, and the mental, emotional and spiritual realms. Sound healing is amazing and effective in helping you manage pain, stress, and to face challenges more easily. It’s also a powerful way to become more conscious and aware, deepening your compassion and opening new pathways to becoming more of your authentic self. These tools are something you can use in a practical way whether you take the course to explore becoming a sound healing practitioner, to add sound healing to your existing work, or for your own personal growth and self-healing.
You’ll also learn the ethics of vibrational therapy, and how not to project your own issues into a healing session. How to create and maintain good energetic boundaries is also included so that you can keep your energy strong and clear while you help others, instead of feeling drained.
In the final retreat immersion experience, (see more juicy details below) you’ll be able to practice hands-on with the tools and learn how to conduct a sound healing session. You’ll be introduced to heart based business practices, to create a solid foundation for your healing work, whether you use it for self-healing, friends and family, or as the foundation or addition to a thriving client practice.
- 10 LIVE Webcasts – 2 ½ hours each – Interactive Online Classes you can Access from the Comfort of your Home! All online classes (webcasts) will be on Thursday evenings from 6:30 – 9:00pm beginning February 13th, 2014.
- ALL WEBCASTS will be RECORDED, so you can listen to the replay if you miss one, though it is assumed you will always let the instructor know if you will not be present live, and will contact her when you have completed listening to the replay, so you can receive your CEUs for it.
- 3 Day Immersion Retreat Experience begins Thursday evening, May 1st at 7:00pm, and ends Sunday May 4th at 4:00pm. It will be held at a lovely retreat center a little over one hour from Minneapolis, MN, U.S., and includes 8 meals, snacks and lodging, guest presenters and LOTS of hands-on sound healing experiences you’ll never forget. Attending the webcasts AND the retreat is mandatory to receive your certificate (more details on the Retreat are below).
What Others Are Saying:
“We found the course with Kay Grace very illuminating on the methodology of Sound Healing. Kay brought more than her knowledge and methods; she added a wonderful sense of warmth, humor and wisdom that made her an ideal teacher and mentor. We feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to learn from her in an interactive setting. Would highly recommend her to others.”
~Carla & Andrew Grivas, Minneapolis, MN (Dental Hygienist and Medical Illustrator)

“I am taking the entire series and it has been fabulous – loving every class!”

Curriculum & Class Details
Online Webcast Classes #1 & 2: The Healing Power of Sound – Foundation
Thurs 6:30pm – 9pm; February 13th 2014
Thurs 6:30pm – 9pm; February 20th 2014
Explore the art and science of Sound Healing through immersion and hands on experiential learning. We will cover the how and the why, as well as an overview of the chakras and the Human Energetic System as it relates to Sound Healing. You’ll learn how to connect with your Higher Self and to trust the guidance it brings. We’ll cover the ethics of vibrational therapy, and how not to project your own issues into a healing session, and the importance of doing your own healing work on yourself. As you are introduced to the tools of sound healing, you’ll practice live on the webcast with your classmates on giving and receiving Higher Self guidance in unique and powerful Mastermind mini-sessions designed to help you open and trust your intuitive gifts. Discover some simple yet powerful sound practices to incorporate into your everyday life.
Online Webcast Classes #3: Sounding the Earth – Drums, Dance & Didgeridoo
Thurs 6:30pm – 9pm; February 27th 2014
Sound healing has been around for thousands of years, and many of these methods are just as powerful today as they were then. From tribal or ecstatic dance, to rhythm, drums and the didgeridoo of the Australian Aborigines, these ancient sounds connect us to the Earth in a primal way, as the vibrations make us want to move. Shamans have used drums to anchor vision quests, while others have used drums to call in a state of being, create a ritual, raise energy, or to release a stuck or stagnant energy. Learn some basics on using drums, voice and nature-based sounds for both self-healing and working with others.
NOTE: On the retreat you’ll experience this live using movement, earth music, voice, drums, and rattles, and be taken on a guided sound journey to access your inner wisdom, and to let go of anything that is not serving your highest good.
Guest presenter on retreat: Hanakia Zedek: Inner Voice & the Talking Woods.
Guest presenter on retreat: Cheri Bunker: Drumming Health Rhythms
Online Webcast Classes #4: Voice I – Your Soul Signature
Thurs 6:30pm – 9pm; March 6th 2014
Intention is everything, but what if you’re not aware of them all? Learn to recognize when something is honoring your authentic Voice, and when it is not. Uncover unconscious “ counter intentions” which may be blocking you from your highest potential. Use your voice to shift your energy with sound toward greater harmony and toward what you DO want, while letting go of whatever is no longer serving your highest good. We’ll explore the ancient art of chanting and sacred mantras to experience this first hand, both in a special listening experience through Normandale’s online distance learning system before you arrive on this webcast, and in person with even greater depth during the 3 day retreat.
Online Webcast Classes #5: Voice II– As A Healing Tool
Thurs 6:30pm – 9pm; March 13th 2014
Your voice is the most powerful of all the sound healing tools. Learn how to use toning to clear and balance the energy centers in yourself and others, as well as how to use the voice to dissolve physical, mental, emotional or even spiritual blocks. We’ll practice how to use toning to do distance healing and healing with groups of people. We’ll also cover using the voice as a diagnostic tool, and an introduction to overtone singing, also known as vocal harmonics. You’ll learn how to use your voice effectively without hurting your throat or vocal cords. There will be short review videos available so you can practice anytime you like, and we’ll play more with creating vocal harmonics on the retreat as well.
Online Webcast Classes #6: Singing Metals: Tibetan (Himalayan) Bowls & Chimes
Thurs 6:30pm – 9pm; March 20th 2014
Learn how to use Tibetan Bowls to balance the energy centers, to clear blocks and to entrain a person into a state of peace and calming. These amazing metal singing bowls can also be used to determine where a block may be in the energy system. Metal chimes and Ting-Shas are additional sound healing tools from the singing metals family; learn how they work and practice some great self-care methods as well as ways to work with others to balance and harmonize the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies. There will be short videos available for review as well, so you can “see” as well as “hear,” and you will experience them live on the retreat.
Online Webcast Classes #7: Singing Metals: Tuning Forks
Thurs 6:30pm – 9pm; March 27th 2014
Tuning Forks are also members of the Singing Metals family of sound healing tools. They have a powerful and focused effect on the nervous system, nourishing the brain, and helping people get out of the “fight or flight” panic mode, and back into peace and calming. They are also known to help relieve acute physical pain, especially swelling and inflammation. You’ll learn how this works, and a couple of simple protocols to use tuning forks both on the body at acupressure points, as well as off the body, in the energy field, depending on the desired outcome, which you can practice in person on the retreat.
Online Webcast Classes #8: Sounding the Light; Color & Sound for Healing
Thurs 6:30pm – 9pm; April 3rd 2014
Sound waves are actually physical matter (atoms and molecules), where light waves are electromagnetic and appear as different colors when dispersed through a prism. Learn how to use sound, light and color together to create a powerful healing effect. Many healing systems connect specific colors to specific chakras or energy centers, and specific sounds to certain colors as well, while others feel that any color can be “encoded” onto any sound, as long as the intention is clear. You’ll learn to work with colors in both ways, and to trust your intuition about which method is best in a particular situation.
Online Webcast Classes #9: Crystal Singing Bowls, Crystals & Clairaudience
Thurs 6:30pm – 9pm; April 10th 2014
Crystal singing bowls and crystals amplify, transform, store, focus, transfer and transmute energy. Our bodies also contain “crystalline structures,” as bones, and the myelin sheaths of the nervous system, which is why using them is so powerful as a sound healing tool – it affects us “bone deep.” The binaural beats and unusual harmonics produced by the singing bowls can profoundly affect our nervous system and assist with both physical and emotional healing. During the retreat, you will experience this for yourself as you are surrounded by the celestial sounds of the Crystal Singing Bowls.
When we master the use of crystal, we open ourselves to become an instrument of transmission and reception – of higher wisdom and healing sound. Learn how to use crystals with sound effectively both for healing and to develop your intuition and clairaudience – the power to hear sounds & messages beyond the reach of ordinary experience.
Online Webcast Classes #10: Ethics & Becoming a Sound Healing Practitioner
Thurs 6:30pm – 9pm; April 17th 2014
Now that you’ve learned the tools and gained a bit of real experience in using sound, it’s time to learn what it’s like to be a healing practitioner, a guide and healing presence for others. You will learn how to conduct a complete Sound Healing session with a friend or client, from intake and regulatory concerns, to asking from the heart for your client to book their next appointment. You’ll do a short discovery process to help you get clear on whether you want to pursue becoming a practitioner, use what you’ve learned for self-healing, or add some sound work to an existing practice.
We’ll cover the ethics of vibrational therapy in more depth, and how to create and maintain good energetic boundaries so that you can keep your energy strong and clear while you help others. We’ll discuss the importance of doing your own self-healing work, and provide useful tools for a daily practice to keep you clear and grounded, and provide resources for times when the healer needs healing!
BONUS Webcast (optional): Q & A with Kay Thursday, April 24th Get your questions answered, and go through a guided meditation practice to connect with your inner wisdom about your next steps. Do you want to be a healer, or work on deep change in yourself? What does your guidance say?

A Sound Bath we create together with our Voices, Tibetan Singing Bowls, Crystal Singing Bowls & Drums.
Dive deep, bringing together all that you’ve learned, and practice the art and science of Sound Healing hands on with your fellow participants. This retreat is highly experiential; expect a transformational and healing experience as you step into Level I of the Mastery of Sound Healing.
Understand and experience for yourself what it’s like to focus on your BEING, instead of on DOING, and on what else is possible, as you practice allowing, receiving and letting go of judgments and limited thinking that may have stopped you from opening into your magnificence – your authentic self-hood.
Explore the use of music as medicine. Music speaks to both sides of the brain, logical/ verbal AND emotional/non verbal. The more complex music is, the more it draws the listener in as it both intrigues the mind and touches the emotions. We’ll explore music from the perspective of both creators and active listeners, and learn what kinds of music works well in different situations, from healing sessions to better productivity, to studying for tests, or reducing stress and anxiety.
Whether you plan to serve clients as a sound healing practitioner, or simply to use what you have learned to create greater harmony, healing and happiness in your life, this retreat will be an anchor of well-being, confidence and self-mastery.
You will also receive a ticket (my treat) to a fantastic concert held right in our location, given by Michael James Wachner, a Minneapolis based producer, songwriter and musician. Michael has an incredible way of channeling pure spirit when he plays, embodying and radiating healing energy in and through the music.
Michael’s performances are a catalyst for healing, meditation and transformation and seem to carry the beauty and spirit of the woods and water surrounding us.
His soul shines through his music, and you will never forget how it makes you feel. He will help us to anchor the sacred sound space with a very special musical meditation as well.
I’m not sure about the Webcasts – Can I really learn this way? Will they really be experiential and interactive?
This is the first time this series will be taught through Webcasts online, though I do have a Level II Year -Long Apprenticeship program which is made up of 2 retreats, plus 6 live day intensives, plus 22 webcasts, so I have lots of experience using this tool!
We connect by phone and computer, so we can all hear one another in real time. We open each class with a guided sound healing meditation or experience, and provide video “slides” which illustrate whatever we are discussing, as well as handouts (PDFs) which you receive for each webcast, so you have the content highlights and notes. I also provide links to various videos and audios, some of which I have created, some of which are out on YouTube and other websites, to more clearly illustrate what we are working on. The real beauty of these webcasts is the connection & bonding that takes place between students, and the opportunity to actually practice what you are learning about with each other.
Sound healing, being auditory, is a great fit for this, because techniques using voice don’t have to be supported visually. It’s possible to perform a full sound healing on someone remotely, or even by phone, which I have done for many years. I have found that it’s also easier for students to really get clear on their own Higher Self connection and inner wisdom when we practice it together on the phone or webcast – not being physically in the same room with each other actually takes any “pressure to perform” off.
I’d Love to Come – What is the Cost?
Since this is the first “Hybrid” version of the Sound Healing Mastery Certificate Program to be offered – where we will be together LIVE on 10 webcasts, have an online place to interact and connect for deeper review and listening experiences, PLUS a 3 Day In-Person Retreat, I’d really like to fill this class to capacity!
To honor your trust in taking this “maiden voyage” online AND in person, I very much want to make this training affordable, so Tuition is $1100 (plus retreat cost). For comparison, a typical Healing Touch Level I class, taken over 2 days (16 hours of instruction) costs about $375.00. Sound Healing Mastery provides 64 hours of instruction for less than $17 per hour – that’s about the cost of a high-end drop-in Yoga class!
There is an additional energy investment of $497 for the required Retreat, which covers the cost for 3 Full Days plus an evening in a lovely retreat facility, 3 Full Nights of Lodging, (most rooms are doubles), delicious local, mostly organic meals & snacks, all materials, surprises and amazing Guest Presenters!
Energy Investment: $1497 includes the entire Webcast Series plus Retreat, which includes food & lodging.
Bring A Friend: Take $100 off for Each of you! $1397 each
2- Part Option A: Take the Webcast Series first, then come to a second Retreat to be held in in late summer /early fall (if May does not work for you). Pay only the tuition for the webcast at this time; pay for the retreat tuition 60 days before the retreat is scheduled (summer/fall date to be announced) .
2- Part Option B: Take the Retreat first this May, then the webcast series in the Summer (after the retreat). Pay only for the May Retreat at this time; pay for the webcast tuition 30 days before its scheduled start time .
Non Certificate Option: You may also choose to take the Webcast Series alone, OR the May Retreat alone, without receiving your Level I Certificate (you must do both to receive the certificate).
The retreat facility can house approximately 20 people. Most will be sharing rooms with 2 single beds, though there are a few single rooms which will be offered first-come, first-served.
The energy is exceptionally beautiful this way, when we are not distracted by driving home and checking email, and talking to those who are not sharing the experience with us.
All your meals and snacks from Friday breakfast through Sunday lunch will be made with loving care from fresh, primarily organic ingredients by the awesome staff and there will also be a few edible surprises made by Michael, my husband and co-leader. As a healer himself, he will be adding intention and high vibration to the food, to keep us energized and grounded. We are able to accommodate those eating a gluten-free or vegan type diet; just let us know.
Each person must click on TWO “Add to Cart” Buttons – one for Tuition, and one for Retreat, unless you are choosing only the webcast series, or only the retreat at this time.
Once you click on the PayPal Add to Cart button, you will be taken to secure checkout page where you can pay using PayPal or a major credit card. We also accept checks, though it may take a bit longer while the check clears, to confirm your spot. Checks should be made payable to Two Spirits, LLC, and mailed to 4024 14th Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55407.
Please NOTE: All Retreat payments are non-refundable, since we must pay the facility in advance, and do not receive a refund for any changes or cancellations. All Tuition payments are non-refundable after December 9th, 2013, for the same reason – we can only take 18 -20 students, and may not have enough time to fill a slot after that date. If you are able to find a replacement student to take your place, your tuition would then be refunded once they have been confirmed.

Why would you want to do this?
From the comments of past students…
- To learn the fundamentals of Sound Healing, and to go beyond that, to experience healing and transformation.
- Knowledge and hands-on learning to use in my everyday life in the face of change and challenge
- To learn what it takes to become a profound healing presence for others
- To add unique skills and new tools to my existing work in order to serve more people
- To Find my Own Voice
Why wouldn’t you?
The truth is, we’re all scared of deep change, and building your sound healing skills and participating fully in your own healing journey (whether you ever become a practitioner or not) requires embracing a path of deep personal and transformational growth. This naturally brings up thoughts like “I don’t have enough time to do this, “ “I don’t have enough money to do this,” or “I’m not sure if I really have what it takes to do this.”
The key is to discern whether these thoughts are coming from a place of what is really so, or from internal resistance. Are they showing you that this course is not a good fit? Or are they showing you fear? If it’s fear, you’ll have to choose whether you are willing to go beyond it, and claim what your heart is telling you.
I believe your education, passion and commitment to serving others happens in stages, and each stage requires that you invest your time, money and passion to bring your dream to life. Sometimes that dream is a personal one – a journey to becoming your best self, living in the freedom of being who you really are, offering your gifts in service, not because you “should,” but because it’s your heart’s deepest desire. Choosing to participate in a program like this can be an important part of this journey, whether or not you choose to “hang out a shingle” in this field.
When you choose to study with me, I will do all that I can to honor your trust in me, and to co-create an experience that truly makes a difference in your life and in the lives of those you touch.
With love moving through me,
