Transition with Intention

We offer the option to add a bowl to your registration!

A Tibetan Singing bowl is required for this course and we know many have one at home, but not everyone does! You have the option to purchase a bowl with the course or bring your own! Meinl Singing Bowls have been designed to accommodate meditation and sound therapy practices. With a bellied design created from additional hammering, these bowls generate a sustained deep tone that will fill a room with ambient sounds. You have the option to purchase a 6.5" Meinl Singing Bowl and mallet with your course tuition or bring your own bowl!

Meet Your Instructors

Jessica Cross

Founder of Sound For Stress

Jessica Cross is a sound practitioner, meditation and yoga teacher serving the Austin, TX metro area. She uses sound to offer tools of deep relaxation to her students. Jessica is also an E-RYT 200/500 hr yoga teacher trainer and sound practitioner trainer and shares her passion for wellness with new teachers and practitioners. She first experienced the healing tones of a singing bowl while in savasana and knew sound would be an important part of her personal journey. She later began incorporating sound into her yoga classes and deepened her studies to share the ancient practice with others.

Susan Vichick-Johnson

Founder of Sacred Sounds ATX

Susan Vichick-Johnson, LCSW, tries to move through the world in peace & joy. Her intention is to create spaces for healing, so that others may move through the world in Peace & Joy. She creates these spaces through integrating sound, meditation and if desired, psychotherapy. Although some types of meditation and mindfulness have been a part of her life since she was a teen, it was not until sound; specifically, the Tibetan bowls, found her that she was awakened to the power of sound & vibration, combined with meditation, for healing.

What our students are saying

Cate J.

This workshop was wonderful - from start to finish. Jessica and Susan created a safe space for learning and growth. I feel like I received so much more out of it than what I initially invested. I highly recommend The Sound Academy.

Kristin P.

My sound sessions with both Jessica and Susan were life changing- and I truly mean that! The experience is both relaxing and eye opening at the same time. I cannot recommend these sessions enough!
