Profile and Credentials        

Zacciah began a conscious journey to self awakening in 1969, soon guided to develop understanding in intuitive healing, in sacred sound cultures, and in the making of musical instruments of sacred sound cultures. His studies exposed him to the sacred music, sound healing traditions, and master teachers of numerous cultures

In 1985, Zacciah began to use his knowledge and experience in creating studies and a healing practice to share with others. He utilized sound coupled with sacred intention as a therapeutic tool, in shamanic style settings, for personal healing and transformation.

He has since offered numerous programs on the nature of self transformation through the use of esoteric and alchemical practices and exercises, invoking sacred sound streams in his work, which he calls Sacred Sound Transmissions. He has built and directs programs at the Center of Light Institute of Sound Healing and Shamanic Studies, in Ascutney, VT. He directs trainings in a 3 year certification program in sound healing, and offers esoteric studies in personal transformation, high alchemy, and outdoor shamanic programs, studying the mysteries of this Earth and her indigenous peoples.

No experience can equal the knowledge acquired through one's own passage into the Knowing of Self. Zacciah brings to his work this self passage, which he readily transmits to others, to assist with their own passage.

He brings with him a warmth and radiance that exudes through his work. We welcome you to experience with us this life transforming work of the journey into the Self, through the use of Sacred Sound.

Zacciah assisted in the creation of the New England Sound Healing Research Institute, and is now Board Member, and Director of Education for NESHRI (see neshri.org, now soundhealingnetwork.org.) He is also co-founder and Director of the World Sound Healing Organization, and All One Now Network, dedicated to bringing about global transformation, through the offerings of teachings of leaders in the fields of human consciousness development & sound healing, respected elders of indigenous cultures, and live ceremonies and sound healing events on line via free internet broadcasts.

Philosophy and Comments        

Sacred sound is one way of defining the nature of whom we are as vibrational beings. Sound is the nature of Creation, as spoken through so many cultures, from Aboriginal to Biblical to Hindu. When we attune to our own sacred nature, and voice this in resonance with clarity and trust, we come into contact with our very essence. Zacciah uses sound coupled with sacred intention to invoke the essence of higher being. This allows us each to enter more readily into a sacred space, more ready to explore the deeper nature of ourselves, and relationship to that which we personally hold as sacred. Integrating esoteric practices of shamanic and alchemical traditions, Zacciah creates the groundwork which assists us in walking through a rich tapestry of unfolding experiential insights into our essence. He also works with sacred earth sites, assisting us through ceremony and simple practices, to attune to earth energies and essences, again to deepen relationship, and awaken personal revelation of the nature of place.
