What is the Heart of Sound?

More than simply a profound approach to Sanskrit mantra and nada (the yoga of vibration). . . the Heart of Sound invites you into a harmonious way of being in the world.

The training will change how sweetly you digest your past, how richly you savor your present, and how gloriously you write the song of your future. 

Our sound training community explores sound healing in the deepest sense. Sound baths, gongs, tuning forks, and crystal bowls are wonderful... and it might be fair to say that the Heart of Sound begins where those sound healing trainings end.

Our careful, reverent approach to the time-tested yogic methods of mantra and nada is a gateway into nothing less than mystic communion. If that's not enough, you can also expect:

  • Profound personal transformation
  • Tangible nervous system self-regulation
  • Rejuvenating stress relief
  • Improved self-connection
  • Enhanced empathetic listening abilities
  • Gentle unwinding of layers of trauma defense mechanisms
  • A noticeable lack of dogma, weird guru hierarchy, conspiracy theories, and spiritual bypassing
  • Genuine, caring, life-long friendships with fellow sound-lovers around the world

We primarily offer voice training, and our kirtan chant leadership training also includes learning tanpura and harmonium. Voice cultivation is our priority because when we use our own voice as our instrument, the sound heals us in much more direct, profound ways. It's the difference between watching someone eat, and eating yourself. (Can you guess at another great analogy? 😉) This is music therapy training for your heart, mind, voice, and full embodiment!

Who are we? Meet the community!

Therapists, wellness practitioners, yoga teachers, life coaches, counselors, business executives, musicians, sound healers, music therapists, and educators of all kinds from over 55 countries have graduated from the Heart of Sound 200 & 500 hour teacher training programs since founder Anandra George started teaching in 2009.

"I totally underestimated the impact the Heart of Sound would have on my life. I’ve done many courses, with many great teachers, but studying with Anandra feels like hitting the jackpot; it's a gift that keeps on giving. I’m not kidding that it is a mind-blowing experience that can transform your life. I'm forever grateful."
