Rudi Bach Sound Meditation Facilitator at Kripalu Center (MA, USA)

Guy Yair Beider is a core teacher in my development as a sound therapy practitioner. He has thoughtfully guided my approach and ethos during a time when my work has expanded into larger groups. While some teachers tend towards theory, and others more towards practicum, Guy blends both with wisdom, humor, and a heart the size of a bus. One of the things you come away with when studying with him is his love of the instruments, and the way he cares for the soundscape. His approach is grounded in deep experience, and he has a clear eye for any unnecessary baggage the student may be carrying. I've learned so much from Guy, and enjoyed it!

Lee R Horsman Sound Meditation Facilitator (NC, USA)

Not new to singing bowls but interested in developing my skill in using them therapeutically and in support of meditation, I had no clear idea of the many kinds of singing bowls there are, what their properties and ranges of sound are, how they perform both alone and together, and certainly knew nothing of how to pull together a set of bowls that would work well [synergistically] together, both musically as well as therapeutically. Guy brings science and art - plus a touch of mysticism - together in presenting his class. He is highly skilled in being able to share of his wisdom and experience through a clear presentation of the material. He also very helpfully debunks popular misconceptions including some that sales people use. Step by step, Guy describes the sound dynamics that exist in the varying intervals between pitches, all in a way that I could develop a sense of both what I wanted in terms of creating the sound I was searching for as well as how to wisely choose the pitches needed. Guy makes use of numerous online links, video tutorials and interactive exercises which demonstrate points he is illustrating, making even the rather complex concepts easily understandable. I have not elsewhere found video clips as clear and helpful as these. Taking this class has put really helpful tools in my hands, deepened my understanding in very practical ways, and provided an inspiration that makes my search possible and real. I am very grateful for this exquisitely well written class!

I consider myself so lucky, having learned sound healing from Guy as he unveiled a whole new world of sound to me. Guy has an extremely wide scope of knowledge and deep understanding in the field of sound healing. Prior to studying with him I took two sound healing courses with a famous internationally acknowledged Sound Healing school: One on One Sound Healing and Group Sound Healing. Having paid around £2300, I was left with lots of questions that were not answered by my tutors. I was not satisfied with vague, “trust-your -intuition-and-play” answers. Moreover, I realized that it was not only my problem: my friend who took a sound healing course with another famous school, had no idea about harmony and awareness of the dissonant intervals whatsoever, so it was like an unconscious beating onto a bowl, with notes being attributed to a particular chakra. With Guy's methods of teaching, I was able to get a really deep understanding of sound and how things work. In a clear, practical, and enthusiastic way, he passed his knowledge of how to apply sound to generate deep healing responses. As his teachings are based on profound scientific research combined with intuitive knowledge, Guy encouraged me to develop intuition through a conscious listening. His course is so comprehensive and there is no need to learn more from other sources. I truly recommend him!

Guy Beider

For many years I was seeking a practice that would help me become a better version of myself and bring benefits to others. In 2007 my path brought me to the sound of Himalayan singing bowls. That moment that I heard the complex simplicity of the singing bowl for the first time, I skipped a breath. It felt like the world just stopped. It appeared to me right away that I had to learn about these instruments… Lots of information I was finding didn't make sense to me at all. YouTube videos of people striking loudly sacred instruments made me doubtful. I was drawn to the subtle beauty of sound and committed to unveil and share this beauty. I bought several singing bowls and started to gently play hypnotic sequences for individuals and groups. Singing bowls and the audience became my best teachers. For a better understanding of the dynamics between my instruments, I began to explore the acoustical properties of each bowl. I deepened myself into the judicious listening and study of musicology, physics, psychoacoustics, and psychology. Now I was feeling — and knowing — what was happening. Since 2010 I've conducted hundreds of sound journeys. I've been blessed to witness and document real miracles happening to my audience. These miracles made me confident and motivated to share my expertise with you. I take this mission with humility, great honor, and even greater responsibility!
