Learn how to integrate specialized audio technology into your medical or mental health practice in this experiential training program.
Workshop Faculty: Eben Alexander, MD, Karen Newell, and Anna Yusim, MD
FOR: This course is designed for health professionals including physicians, nurses, mental health therapists, addiction specialists, counselors and related health practitioners, including life coaches, hypnotherapists, acupuncturists and other energy-healing modalities.
Explore methods to improve healing and wellness for your clients through the use of specialized audio technology, as demonstrated with NeuralHelix® recordings produced by Sacred Acoustics. In this course, you will learn how to facilitate your patients/clients in applying practical techniques in their daily lives, and specifically how they might utilize specialized brainwave entrainment audio recordings as a tool for healing, harmony and wholeness. You will learn how meditation, heart awareness and other practices help the professional understand the value of personal experience as a link to mood stabilization and intuitive awareness. You will practice using focused attention in preparation for a range of patient/client contacts from office visits to treatments or surgery. You will learn techniques for becoming more whole – in mind, heart and spirit – and you will become more aware of the heart’s role in spiritual, emotional, mental and physical health. These are vital strategies for healing and maintaining optimum health.
Advanced brainwave entrainment audio technology offers some of the leading resources to improve stress, anxiety, depression, addiction, and insomnia, while also empowering the patient in the healing process. A 2018 pilot study performed in Anna Yusim’s psychiatric practice revealed a 26% reduction in anxiety after two weeks of following the listening protocol, as compared to a 7% reduction in anxiety in patients receiving regular therapy without the sound element. Patients reported a myriad of other benefits, such as better sleep, improved focus and personal breakthroughs.
Healing is multi-dimensional and interactive. Evolving standards of healthcare require attending professionals not simply to diagnose at arm’s length, but to be an active participant in their own personal wellness as well as that of their patients. When we acknowledge that life is not solely about the individual soul’s journey but an interwoven consciousness in which everyone partakes, then our purpose and effectiveness become clearer. Re-orienting our health services with this perspective requires more effective tools for healing.
During this course, participants will:
- Discuss non-conventional relationships of brain and consciousness
- Learn the scientific evidence for filter theory and metaphysical idealism
- Review the various causes of mental health disorders
- Gain a broader perspective on mental health treatment modalities
