Medicine Melodies: The Use of Music in Shamanic & Psychotherapy Practices with Silvia Nakkach

The class explores the use of music to clear and open energetic channels and as a gateway for therapeutic processes and community peacemaking. Through guided sound-centered contemplative practices, drumming, and chanting, students gather an original repertoire of medicine melodies to use in shamanic, psychotherapy, and healing sessions. Students experience the emotional magic that comes from singing the icaros of the Peruvian Amazon, and indigenous traditions from India, Tibet, Tuva, and beyond. The specific use of music to support spiritual healing in John of God's work and the Afro-Brazilian communities in Brazil will be examined through a multimedia presentation.


Silvia Nakkach,
MA, MMT, was named by Utne Reader as one of 40 cutting-edge artists who will shake the art world. She is an award-winning composer and pioneer in the field of sound. She has collaborated with renowned shamans from several traditions, and studied raga singing with Ali Akbar Khan. She is a teacher and academic advisor for the Sound, Voice, and Music Healing Certificate program at CIIS.
