“Sound has been my teacher, inspiration, mentor, path of discovery and awakening my entire life. I would love to share with you some of the experiences gained from this relationship.”
About Vickie Dodd
Director of Sacred SoundWorks, Vickie is an internationally known pioneer in the field of Sound as a Bodywork. She is an Aston-Patterning Teacher, author, poet, nutritionist, herbalist, workshop leader and musician. She started using sound as a healing modality in her work with her clients over 30 years ago. She has trained with many master teachers in the art of body therapies and spiritual purification tools.
The essence of Vickie’s work is a multi-dimensional approach to using Sound as an evolutionary tool, emphasizing maturation of the emotional body. Vickie has the rare ability to “sense” the subtle rhythm, vibrations, and tones that all matter produces. She uses her remarkable gift of “sounding” to match the unique soundprint of a person. To this sensitivity Vickie has added serious study and exploration into the curative aspects of sound, color and movement.
Vickie has designed a system, which integrates emotional memories within the physical body and facilitates the release of long held emotional distress.
Vickie teaches others how to listen to themselves and to use their voices to recapitulate the memories and history that resides in their bodies. These teachings empower and educate the serious sound student to direct and evolve their emotional and physical maturation. She has consulted with organizations and professional groups, assisting them to address specific issues they encounter in their work and life responsibilities.
She is the author of “Tuning The Blues To Gold: Soundprints” and has several recordings available. As director of Sacred SoundWorks she lives in Port Angeles, Washington, and teaches in Europe. Latin America, and many locations around the USA.
A few of her teachers that have been crucial to her evolving this work are: Dr. Joseph Liss, Dr. Ramurtri Mishra, William David (Elias De Mohan) and Judith Aston.
“Sounds literally shape our realities…
Everything that occurred in our lives is recorded in our bodies. These events are recorded in our tissue as memories that actually exude a sound, and respond and change shape when engaged by our voice. Sound touches us where hands and words cannot reach.”
Sound is a discernment medium.
Sound has the ability to audibly let one know what is theirs and what isn’t.
Sound acts as an instrument of divining, of distinguishing functional holding patterns, versus anatomical, structural holding patterns. We use Sound in this form to allow the body to move memories, feelings, imprints; in a sense we allow the body to release the past that is held in the tissues and any cells.
Our main interest within this work is evolution.
And we are working from a premise that to move toward an evolutionary angle, one needs to know what is their particular frequencies, what are their particular patterns or imprints and how have they shaped the psychology of their body.
Sound is used in this work to sound enough that is functional; i.e.: how the environment shapes us, computer terminals, car seats, subways, noise (traffic, construction) yelling, violent energy or words, these are just a few examples of how we are easily impressed daily by a multitude of various shaping. So we learn to use sound to neutralize, de-charge, unhook from the shaping of our daily lifestyle. So we first learn discernment, learn to recognize what is our frequency so then we can easily feel when another frequency is not ours and then we can use sound to move that which is not ours into a place of neutral.
