Sacred Soundworks Retreat with Vickie Dodd: Sound as a Bodywork

Sacred Soundworks Retreat with Vickie Dodd: Sound as a Bodywork

Welcome to our 9th annual Sacred SoundWorks retreat held within the deep layers of old growth forest and the shores of Lake Crescent, on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State. 

Vickie Dodd is offering a practitioner training for previous students of her Sacred SoundWorks trainings. During this week-long residential training you will learn the fundamentals of three dimensional touch, three dimensional sound, and listening to the inner terrain of other people's bodies. This training will be a deep immersion with much opportunity to experience a variety of bodies and layers of interest.


Vickie pioneered Sound as a Bodywork with her clients in the early 1970s. She observed that matching the frequency or rhythm of the tissue she was massaging changed the shape of that tissue.  She is excited to share and pass on her experience of what she has gleaned in these decades. The most important step for working with others is that we must continue our own self-work. What a gift, and what an opportunity! 

This retreat introduces the foundational teachings of Sound as a Bodywork, that Vickie began developing in the mid 1970's. This work has been shared by thousands of people across the world.


Sacred SoundWorks principles include:

  • Frequency
  • Light
  • Shape
  • Movement
  • Accessing Sound as our Teacher is the primary focus

This training will provide you the tools and confidence to use Sound as a Bodywork in your practice. There will be guest teachers that use sound in their specific therapies.

We will be on Lake Crescent in the deep old growth forest in Olympic National Park. Those of you that have experienced this place know and remember its magic to quiet us and mend and attend to our nervous systems. There will be many opportunities to receive the healing that being in the old growth forest provides, and the teachings that restore us to our own nature.


This 2019 Sound Retreat weaves together a variety of body/mind healing modalities. Vickie Dodd teaches the use of sound to dissolve emotional memories held in the physical body using the harmonics of the rainforest, waterfalls, and a glacier-fed mountain lake to facilitate our spiritual solution. 

During our time together we will explore…

  • How we approach a body
  • Aston Kinetic Concepts
  • Deep Listening
  • Learning to match that which we perceive
  • Gaining confidence in what we perceive
  • Daily meditations to reflect our inner landscape
