Sound Therapy Training in Abu Dhabi
The training took place at The Abu Dhabi EDITION, an Ian Schrager hotel (which falls under Marriott), the therapists come from Mexico, Italy, Myanmar, Indonesia and Philippines. We had a full 3 days of training in the History of Sound Therapy, using ancient wisdom along with scientific side by educating the therapists on Cymatics and brain entrainment. We covered localized healing as well as a full body protocol and how to conduct a group sound meditation session. This is the first luxury hotel spa in the United Arab Emirates offering this treatment and so far is getting excellent feedback. The locals are curious and adding it to their massages!

His songs are heard on network television, radio, stage productions, YouTube, and included on the 2012 Grammy Award winning Best Children’s Album.

Did you ever wonder what kids or parents or grandparents would want to say if they could write with a professional songwriter? People experiencing success or trauma or love or new insight often have a story to tell! Songwriter Monte Selby tries to capture those stories, and here are examples of songs he’s written from people in schools, residential treatment facilities, senior citizen events, and correctional institutions.
