A weekend workshop for therapists, somatic professionals, coaches, medical doctors and caregivers 

The intentional use of carefully crafted acoustic stimuli together with embodied listening practices is one of the most effective and creative ways to exercise and regulate the autonomic nervous system. When we listen to stimulating sounds, we activate the sympathetic nervous system being responsible for agility and assertiveness. On the other hand, when we hear soothing sounds, we activate the parasympathetic part of our autonomous nervous system that regulates rest and regeneration functions. The Somatic Sound Immersion is part of the Acoustic Body® program and opens up a gateway for the therapeutic use of the inner and outer worlds of sound.

Take time to explore some applications of sound for your
professional and personal life in a small group setting of only 20 participants

The human body is wired to be exquisitely sensitive to sound. The faculty of hearing is one of the first senses to be developed in the uterus, and the last to depart before death. Nevertheless, this sense is under-appreciated.

The Somatic Sound Immersion introduces you to the immense power that sound has to transport us into various brainwave states, to strengthen our dynamic sensory memory and to helps us find an inner state of centred awareness. By alternately activating both parts of the autonomous nervous system, it also supports the creation of a broad platform of resilience for experiences and a dynamic balancing of the nervous system, while at the same time deepens our skills of experiencing our the body and the abilities to listen through it.

The Acoustic Body tools are breaking new ground equally in therapeutic, technological and social fields by uniting leading visionaries in the creation of a coherent new way to work with sound. The concept has been proven in workshops throughout Europe and is now taking the next step forward into a whole professional training. The Somatic Sound Immersion is designed specifically for people in the therapeutic and medical fields who are interested in incorporating the use of sound and embodied listening tools as a part of their practice.
