    Chantdoc will teach the ancient art of toning and chanting to Florida nurses!

This week I will be in Jacksonville, Florida at a conference for nurses. (Go HERE for details.) These nurses are among the growing numbers of health professionals who want to learn about and understand the powerful healing properties of sound and vibration. Toning and chanting have existed from the dawn of civilization and humans have known intuitively that they promote healing and good health. Why? There are more reasons than I can enumerate here, but part of it is the simplicity of toning and the fact that, when combined with intention, healing is easily begun. Of course once must understand that healing is not necessarily “curing.” Healing is the amelioration of symptoms and the establishment of hope and empowerment in the patient. Powerful tools. We know that all of life is vibration; that is nothing new. What is new is the instruments that can measure vibrations so fast that we can now put numbers to them. For that reason we can know at what speeds healthy organs vibrate. When they fall into a state of “dis-ease” like the liver of an alcoholic or drug addict, they begin to vibrate faster in an effort to heal themselves. Amazing? Yes, but take a look at this! This is an actual photograph of cancer cells that are shrinking as a direct result of sound and vibration.

In addition, the power of intention by a group of people or an individual, to begin the healing process, is crucially important. If millions of people have toned and chanted for millennia, there must be something to it! There are several important books on toning but the one I would recommend first is a simple little book called “Toning: the Creative power of the Voice” by Laurel Elizabeth Keyes (click on the image to the left to order from Amazon). You can also hear an example of toning on my website by going HERE . It’s the 7th clip down under audio clips. I also have an entire tape of toning and chanting you can purchase it at my HME Shoppe. The title says “for addictions” but the process is the same no matter what the purpose. Toning can be done either alone or in a group and can also be used as a form of distant healing. If you can’t attend the workshop in Florida and would be interested in participating in a teleseminar, please Email me to get your name on the list. The teleseminar will take place sometime during April.

    Drumming for health and wellness comes to Louisville!

If you live in the Louisville area, you probably know that we now have drumming, toning and chanting every Sunday evening from 5:30-7 PM. The sessions take place at the new headquarters of Healing Music Enterprises, 2410 Frankfort Avenue, 40206. Everyone is welcome and a $10 donation is suggested. We are having a lot of fun and learning quickly about the power of tone, sound, music and rhythm to heal, empower, and bond people together. If you have a drum or rhythm instrument please bring it but I have lots of them ready in case you don’t own your own yet. It’s a good idea to call and let me know you’ll be there so I can plan accordingly! 502-419-1698.

Playing any instrument or singing is always preferable to passive listening in terms of health benefits. It takes no prior training to play many drums and other percussion instruments for fun and enjoyment. If you’re interested in trying a small steel drum, a thumb piano, or a recorder, try an instrument from Apollo’s Axes. You’ll be glad you did!

If you haven’t, do so quickly. You can find it HERE! Everyone who fills it out completely will get a free book and tape of their choice. Once I have gotten another couple dozen responses I will begin the remodeling of my site. I’ve gotten many good suggestions so far and have already started the coaching process with folks locally and far away. Let me know your needs and wants!

    Ask the Chantdoc


Alice, I have a 5 year old son who has been diagnosed with Autism. He loves music and knows over 100 songs. Do you work with Autistic children?


Yes I do. Now that I have a new office with a large group room, I am working individually with a few children and would like to start a small group of 4-5 kids and their Moms. Music, singing and playing simple rhythm instruments is an excellent way for children to learn social skills as well as many important life basics through music.
