Why we offer Trainings:
Our hands-on workshops will give you the opportunity to play, experience, and learn more about the Feeltone Monochords including the Monolini or Monolina Body Therapy Monochords and the larger Concert and Meditation Monochord. While these instruments are completely intuitive and require no prior musical knowledge or ability to play, specific techniques are offered in this training that will deeply improve your ability to play the instruments with beauty, ease, and a variety of colors, as well as to evoke the elements of nature and to hold a deeply meditative space when playing for others. All of these techniques can be used for sound massage, group meditation sessions, to accompany singing and voice work, or to enhance any kind of hands-on healing work from acupuncture to massage therapy.
