What is Sound Healing?

Sound healing is a profound and powerful experience of sound and vibrational frequency, which combines live music, pure natural sound, ancient mantras & soulful vocals. Sound has been utilized in various cultures for thousands of years as a tool for the body, mind and soul of a person for harmony and healing.

The Sound Healing Training of Punnu Wasu and Amín Varkonyioffers a deep immersion into the world of sound, devotion and music as a way of healing. The workshop contains both learning through receiving various sound healing modalities and exploring them through guided practice. Participants are guided into silence through meditation, receive sound immersion such as gong baths and Tibetan bowls, and thereafter go into the practice of exploring the voice and different instruments as sound healing tools. The practical learning experience is supported by lectures about the introduced modalities and their foundation. The content of the workshop draws from a rich array of multi-faceted self-healing approaches of different cultures, including devotional mantra singing, Tibetan sound bowls and gongs, Nada Yoga (the sound of silence), active meditation practice, hand pan playing, toning and overtone singing among others.

About Amín Varkonyi

Amín Varkonyi is a multi-cultural musician, sound healer and hand pan teacher. He was born into a family of artists, his father being a percussionist and music teacher. From an early age he was exposed to music and rhythm and soon found his own passion and heartfelt dedication for music. Through the teachings of his father Amín learned to play percussions and consequently became an inspired and professional hand pan player. On his simultaneous healing journey, he explored sound as one of the most powerful tools to be at peace. The healing nature of Amín’s music became undeniable and organically turned into his deep-rooted purpose. No matter if on stage as a musician, in class as a teacher or in a workshop as sound healer, Amín intuitively opens the space for people of all kinds to reconnect to their inner core. His gentle and life-affirming presence allows participants to both individually and collectively dive into the deep experience of being.
