Musical training is a more potent instrument than any other

in the integration of the human being

because rhythm and harmony find their way into the inward places of the Soul

on which they mightily fasten, imparting grace,

and making the Soul of him who is rightly educated truly graceful.

Acoustic Sound Healing Practitioner


and Guest Teacher MARIA McGONIGAL

We feel honored and privileged to continue sharing and teaching in the lineage of such great "Sound Masters" as: Pythagoras, Hermann Helmholtz, Hazrat Inayat Khan, Johannes Kepler and more recent ones as: Fabien Maman, Jonathan Goldman, Don Campbell, Alfred Tomatis and many others. We were deeply inspired by them all!

Our vision is to continue being messengers and re-creators of such magnificent wisdom
for the benefit of the individual and Humanity.

Russill Paul, author of "Yoga of Sound", informs us that: "The human species suffers from a pervading imbalance because the eye dominates the ear, which corresponds to male forms dominating the female. Many of our problems, ranging from unrest in our relationships to international conflict, can be minimized through reevaluating the way we view, utilize, and relate to sound - and, consequently, to the feminine in our lives."

This Certification Program is the culmination of Rian's lifetime relationship with music and sound. For the last 33 years he has been researching, experimenting and developing the potential of sound to balance, harmonize and heal on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels.

Rian McGonigal has been a pioneer of the Acoustic Sound Healing movement since the late 1980's. A healing crisis he went through provided the opportunity to bring
Acoustic Sound Healing to the Cancer Treatment Centers of America and the Dr. O. Carl Simonton Cancer & Counseling Center where Rian developed and directed the
Therapeutic Music & Sound Departments. 

Maria is a Soul Coaching® Master Practitioner & Trainer, Advanced Yoga & Meditation Teacher, International Retreat Leader and Speaker and International Best Selling Author.

Rian & Maria met in 1993, got married in 1996 and have worked together as a team ever   since.
They beautifully blend the female and male energies and consciously apply the theory
that couples in love magnify the healing power.
