Everything in the Universe vibrates at a certain rhythm. Whether it is physical or non-physical, everything has a frequency. All the elements that make our physical and subtle bodies vibrate and have a frequency. Sound is also vibration and it interacts with our vibratory field, in fact everything in the universe interacts with other vibratory fields. This interaction of all the players in the symphony of the universe creates a Universal harmony that holds everything together.

Ancient cultures around the world have realized that everything owes its existence solely and completely to sound. Both in the Qur’an and the Bible there’s the mention: “First there was the word, and the word was God!”


This realization that everything is connected through vibration and rhythm is the basis of healing at all levels: physical and subtle. Whatever your favorite well-being or self-development activity is, the success depends on how clearly you can connect with this concept of wholeness.

Understanding how sound waves, harmonies and melodies affect our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies is shedding clarity on the potential we carry for being able to heal ourselves. We are natural music beings.


During this workshop I will be sharing music, research studies, experiments and exercises supporting the concept of music as a powerful medicine.
We will be looking at:


  • The mystic nature of sound and music - The importance and universality of music as a fundamental element for all existence, giving us a hint of its affinity with our well-being.


  • The macro and microcosmic sound - Sound in the perspective of the atom (particles) and the black hole.

  • The dynamics of the energy at the level of the Aura and the Chakras, and how music interacts with it - Understanding the essence of the energy thriving at these levels and how can music bring balance and harmony.

  • Understanding and using unconventional sound and music therapies.


  • Listening to original music compositions that will create channels that help us connect with different aspects of our deeper selves, and bring them to light in order to address any deep-rooted ‘emotions’ that may be causing imbalances and illness.


  • The Astral or Emotional level of our body, and how can music help support it - Emotions are behind old habits and old behaviors that can trigger dis-ease and illness.


  • Emotional awareness – Identifying specific emotions in music exercises.


  • Conscious, focused and intentional singing, listening and playing.


Whether you know concepts of music or not makes no difference. You can start using music to benefit your health straight away after this workshop.

JOSE has been involved in music since his first successful punk rock band as a teenager in Sintra which had a strong following for many years and made a number of recordings. He quickly moved into working with the uplifting, feel-good beat of ambient electronic music which he composed and produced as a professional musician for several record labels and  performed as an internationally acclaimed musical artist DJ for over a decade.
Performing to a live crowd gave him the knowledge of how music influences emotions, the sense of well being and connection to the whole.

His musical expression is continually evolving as he is continuously looking for new ways of communicating through music to now embrace the deep healing resonance phenomena of medicine songs and the healing frequencies of plant spirit vibrational medicine, especially to the essential oils and the aromatic herbs whose high frequency vibration has a commonality to harmonious musical resonance.

His warm, easy going and caring approach allows people working with him to relax into their own healing through close encounters with teacher plants and allies.
