Welcome to the Sacred Sound Institute

The use of sacred sound for spiritually-healing purposes is known the world over, from medicine songs to chanted mantra, from calls-to-prayer to Gregorian chant and Protestant hymn. In many cultures, sound is seen as a primary means of access to the divine, providing wholeness through its healing and soothing properties. The Sacred Sound Institute is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 that acts as an advocate for the use of music and sacred sound, especially in the fields of health and wellness, patient care, and inter-religious understanding.
