The Sacred Sound Retreat offers you the opportunity to interact with instruments
and ritual pieces from the 4 corners of the world and antiquity. No musical experience is required for this program.
This year's program will be hosted by Mitch Nur,PhD. and Two Horses Running; with Special
This is Mitch's 12th year with the Sacred Sound Retreat. He has been a practitioner of sacred
sound applications and vibrational healing for 30 years. He is an energetic and provoking teacher who has traveled all over
the world and has studied many traditional and non-traditional methods. His lectures and demonstrations feature a extensive
blend of history, science, and culture; with a hands on approach enabling students to not only fully grasp a subject, but
to go beyond the academic to genuinely experiencing the discipline. And lets not forget his penchant for humor, which makes
his lectures very unique. The primary focus of his work is to provide all students the means by which to use sacred sound
instruments to heal and strenghten their physical and mental states. In turn, enabling them to help others. What primarily
seperates Dr.Nur from other instructors in this field is that he has actually lived and studied in the Himalayas. He is a
student and teacher of these eastern traditions, and is a practitioner who incorporates the teachings into his daily life.
He is currently in study with Bon and Nyingma Lineage Lamas.
Two Horses Running is a senior teacher of the 9ways Mystery School. She is a practicing Native
American Buddhist/Bon shaman in training since the age of 9. She has developed a unique manner to present multi cultural shamanic
practices and vibrational healing techniques. Two Horses is a compelling and direct instructor, enabling students to grasp
the essence of her teachings quickly and completely. She is a highly regarded teacher of the ancient Bonpo Shang, Himalayan
Shamanic Rituals and Ritual Elements of the Buddhist, Bon, and Native American traditions, as well as an accomplished author,
artist, and Traditional Buckskin Dancer. This is her 8th year with the Sacred Sound Retreat. Two Horses is currently in study
with Bon and Nyingma Lineage Lamas.
