Master Class The Healing Power of Sound

Cultivating Greater Attunement, Connection, and Present Moment Embodiment

Through the Therapeutic Use of Sound

The World Needs More Safety…

As humans we have an instinctual need to belong – a sense of belonging to ourselves, our groups, and our communities, and our ecosystem is part of our human blueprint that supports health, happiness, and our sense of purpose in life. In today’s modern world, we have moved away from our inherent blueprint of connectivity – away from cooperative living and a shared sense of safety. We are instead, operating mostly from nervous systems that are wired for defense – we are out of tune with ourselves, others, and the world around us. Now more than ever, the world needs creative solutions that will assist us in re-tuning ourselves so that we can better attune to our inner rhythms, our relational spaces, and our surrounding ecosystem.

Are You Ready for a Modern Approach to Ancient Wisdom?

Sound which has its roots in ancient traditions, is emerging as a contemporary methodology that can have potent effects on our physiology, our experience of intimacy and connection, and even support the realization of our human potential

Are you looking for the next step in your personal or professional growth?

Here is what I have found…

  • Sound and vibration can be used to access our capacity for ventral engagement.

  • We can enhance the effectiveness of the delivery of The Safe and Sound Protocol by experiencing it ourselves as providers.
  • Psychoacoustics is an emerging field that can be easily integrated into your existing practice.
  • The ancient tools of sound healing can be explained through the lens of the nervous system and supported by modern science.
  • Through sound, we can support shifts in our neurobiology, physiology, mental constructs, and emotional processing – allowing us greater access to our joy, spontaneity, and creative expression.

Hear What Individuals Are Saying:

“I am offering my wholehearted (and unsolicited) recommendation for this course. Paula is a very skilled facilitator. She has honed her ability to witness the collective and individual vibrations within a group, and she uses her observations to provide gentle, specific feedback while maintaining the strength and integrity of the group container. You will receive, and thereby open your own connection to, Compassion”. Anna Sanders, LMBT, SSP Certified Provider, Somatic Experiencing Practitioner

“SSP is a game-changer. Paula is an attuned guide and innovator. Her group process brings everything together for a transformational journey.” Madigan Kent, Coach, SEP, SSP certified, LCSW

“Paula has a gentle, supportive, intuitive way of holding space for participants to explore and practice attuning to the messages of their body and respond effectively. This course felt like an unfolding. It allowed me to hone my resiliency skills, clear away the noise that gets in the way of yielding into the present moment, and illuminated clarity for my path. As a fellow therapist, I was grateful for a healing space that didn’t feel like I got too involved in other people’s process, but rather could focus on my own journey with the group energy fortifying the container. I would recommend this course to anyone seeking a shift towards receptivity and the embodied feminine.”

Heidi Andersen, LCMHC-S, RYT, Certified Body Trust Specialist, Certified Safe and Sound Protocol Provider

“Paula offers a beautiful space of exploration, connection, containments and wisdom as one takes the embodied journey using sound and vibration. It’s been a beautiful experience filled with kindness, wisdom and support to stay connected to my authentic and whole self.” Jenna Little, MA, MS, LCMHCA, RDN, LDN, RYT-200, SSP certified
