What’s included in the training price?
Do I need my own Crystal Bowls?
You do not have to own Crystal Bowls to participate in the training. A range of bowls will be provided during the training sessions. However, after completing the training and integrating sound into your daily life, we recommend having a set of 1-3 bowls. There will be an opportunity for 1:1 bowl consultations in cooperation with Alchemy Bowl Studio if desired.
What are the requirements to complete the training with a ŌHIA Certificate?
Can I participate even if I don’t live in Berlin?
This is an in-presence training. But you can travel from another city, staying in Berlin for one night (not included in training price). On Saturdays training begins at 12:00 and ends Sundays at 16:15 (however we recommend staying a little longer on Sundays and visiting Sound Bath classes at ŌHIA).
Can I become an ŌHIA Sound Bath teacher after completing the training?
Yes you can potentially start as a Sub and get your own class later on. To become a teacher, you will need to own your own set of bowls/instruments..
What is a Sound Bath?
A sound bath is a powerful and deep journey into sacred sound. You lie down and feel a refreshing bath of vibrations – alchemy or crystal singing bowls and/or gongs and a wide variety of other ancient sound-healing instruments. Once the room is engulfed with these ancient cosmic vibrations you will immerse yourself into a state of deep relaxation and inner peace. Leaving your always “on” existence behind and getting in touch with your deeper layers of consciousness. Moreover, the sound promotes circulation, energy flow and rejuvenation on a cellular level.
