The Sage Academy Of Sound Energy offers a Certificate Program in SoundHealing -- the study of the therapeutic effect of sound on human beings physiologically, psychologically, emotionally and spiritually.
The Certificate program is a comprehensive curriculum designed to provide students with a broad perspective on this expanding industry, enabling them to focus on their areas of interest.
The Certification program gets you to the point where you can utilize a variety of SoundHealing techniques for your own practice as a Sound Healer. With a certificate from The Academy Of Sound Energy, students should be better equipped to serve as practitioners, specialists, volunteers, interns, or even as members of a multidisciplinary treatment team within a health center or a community agency, as well as in a private healing or counseling practice.
We believe that the only way to truly absorb the teachings is by total immersion and a lot of practice time. The retreat style setting limits outside distraction and enhances the deep focus needed for personal healing to occur, which in turn clears the way for the teachings to be experienced and deeply retained.
Sage Academy of Sound Energy was founded in 2007 by Philippe & Lea Garnier, and has been offering SoundHealing Retreats and Trainings to their community since that time.

In 2010, Lea co-founded the first East coast Annual SoundHealing Intensive at Menla, NY.

Dear Philippe & Lea,
I am so grateful that our paths have crossed. The work both you and Lea -and of course all the masters I met this weekend - are doing has left me absolutely inspired and motivated!
I would also like you to know how much I appreciated the encouragement from you and Lea over the weekend. It's been many years since I have cared about something as much as I do learning the art of sound healing, and knowing that you both recognize and appreciate that means the world to me.

Sat naam dear souls!
I am just sitting in a moment of reflection right now and thinking of where I was a few years ago and where I am now. There have been many things that have happened that have transformed my life. Your training was probably the most significant along with the Kundalini Training. For me they are hand in hand for the technology is similar. I just wanted to express my gratitude for what you do. It inspires me everyday and I am now traveling to spread everything you have shown me. I continue to develop each day and am humbled by everything I learned. So thank you. I don’t know what else I need to say but thank you. With undying love and gratitude,
Jarrod, New York City.
