Music therapy is an allied health profession and one of the expressive therapies, consisting of a process in which a music therapist uses music and all of its facets physical, emotional, mental, social, aesthetic, and spiritual—to help clients improve their physical and mental health.


Color therapy, also known as chromo therapy, is often facilitated in the healing rooms of alternative health practitioners. Color therapy is classified as a vibrational healing modality. is simply a form of visible light, of electromagnetic energy. All the primary colors reflected in the rainbow carry their own unique healing properties. The sun alone is a wonderful healer! It has been proven that lack of sunlight contributes to depression for some people.


Aromatherapy is a form of alternative medicine that uses plant materials and aromatic plant oils, including essential oils, and other aromatic compounds for the purpose of altering one’s mood, cognitive, psychological or physical well being.


Crystal therapy or crystal healing is a form of vibrational medicine. Crystal therapy involves the application of crystals or gemstones to facilitate healing. Each type of stone has its own unique talent. Stones are ancient and wise. Gemstone colors, shapes, and textures all have special meanings. Crystals absorb, focus, direct and diffuse our energy fields to enable a diseased or out of balance body to find it’s natural energetic rhythm once again.


 The Tibetan Singing Bowls are an ancient technology, about 2500 years old, for stimulating our brainwaves. Just like the new technologies of Brainwave Entrainment, Binaural Beats & Isochronic Tones, Tibetan Singing Bowl create a pulsation of sound to enter in our brain.

The sounds generated by Tibetan Singing Bowls are a type of energy medicine that promote healing from stress disorders, pain, depression, and most forms of dis-ease. Healing processes are initiated through entraining our brainwaves to synchronize with the perfect resonance of the bowls. Unique tones create the perfect state for deep meditation, creative thinking and intuitive messages. The pure sonic waves that ring from Tibetan Singing Bowls wake up our ability to hear with more than our ears.


Ancient Symbols: These are ancient geometrical formations from the galaxy Kordulah. Used in old times from the Lemurian and Atlantic priests.
According to the information about these symbols, crystals can receive this energetic frequency and act on Transformation of human patterns, also on the arising energy of the whole planet. This Mandalas and the whole wisdom is channeled by Werner Neuner.

Workshop for Healers Feb 2016 (7) (Medium)

Facilitator: Sonia Indigo

The Natural Healing Tools came in my life in a intuitive way.

In 2009, I started to perform massage sessions, and I started make guided relaxations with colors before the session. Later on, from 2010 I use a similar technique in the relaxation part of the yoga classes.

In 2013, during the practice of the Reiki sessions, I started to intuitively read the chakras using a pendulum, and in 2014 I incorporated the aromatherapy into the Reiki session.

In the beginning of 2015, a lady brought to me Sage, which I started to smudge in the beginning of the Reiki sessions. Later on that year, during a 4 reiki sessions work with a client that had all her chakras unbalanced, I felt the need to incorporate the use of prayers and crystals in order to become the Healing Session more effective. In this same year I started to incorporate the use of the Tibetan Singing Balls into the Reiki Sessions.

Prayers have been present during all my life and I have experienced “miracles” happening in in the most “limit edge” situations.

The Reiki sessions have been highly effective and the feedback from the clients, has been excellent. I felt to share this experience and knowledge to the world and that’s the reason for this workshop.

During the Workshops for Healers I teach and I learn with You as well. As the Indian proverb says:

“The best way to learn is to become a teacher”.

Your questions and your own experiences are a source of wisdom for me and the other students.

What makes this workshop different than other workshops out there?

This process of alternative healing therapies is happening all over the world. And it is awesome! There are many amazing teachers and practices to choose from, and this workshop is not the only way. However, the Workshop For Healers on the Indigo Academy was created originally by Sonia Indigo, so you hardly will find one like this one, and offers an intensive program: we will be meeting for 11 hours for 2 days! The workshops are packed with various alternative meditation, yoga and healing practices all aimed at empowering you to be the powerful and mystical healer/therapist/counselor that you truly are. And it is only with consistent and deep practice that we can achieve long lasting results. Not many people offer a workshop like this.
I really wanted to create a program that will allow people be fully in their connection with their healing capacity, explore various corners of their own healing power, and come back to the world, strong, radiant, alive and empowered. And I am offering this program to You!

Is airfare/travel insurance/visa fees included in the price?
