Your Senior Instructor:
Lana has been fortunate to study with some of the most knowledgeable and gifted sound healing masters in the world but it all began with being born to a musician mother from a long line of professional musicians and healers. She never dreamt all those years ago that she would lead the way to helping bring the art and science of sound healing into the mainstream. She is a certified holistic health coach, Usui Reiki Master teacher, former worship music director and vocal soloist in gospel music ministry, blues and jazz bands, and past board member of the Interdisciplinary Society for Quantitative Research in Music and Medicine. Sharing the healing power of sound, voice and music in a wide variety of modalities and numerous venues over the past fifty years has brought her to the place in recent years to focusing on introducing others to its life-changing force. Lana’s training, education and experience has been almost totally in health care, twenty-five years in allopathic medicine and the last 27 years in holistic healthcare. She has studied voice with Margaret Moul Carli, Sandra Stouffer and Larry Carey. She has had additional healing voice classes with Chloe Goodchild, Kae Thompson Liu and Jill Mattson. Lana is dedicated to continuing to raise the standards and awareness of Sound Healing as a teacher, mentor, and practitioner in both private and group sound immersions at her studio and through numerous expos, retreats, corporations, healthcare facilities, colleges and other wellness events.
Assistant Instructor: Rickie Freedman

Next ReikiSound class to be held late Fall/early winter 2022 depending on covid-19 guidelines.
You need not be a reiki practitioner to take this class, but you must have received reiki and be familiar with energy healing. However, priority is given to reiki practitioners when attendance is limited. This is for any level reiki practitioner. Venues determine whether or not masks and other covid guidelines will be followed. We do want to use caution in spite of the discrepancies and ongoing changes in cdc, state health agencies and medical scientists' findings.
Second Sunday Sound Meditations are held at Soundwise Health Studio in Lancaster, Pa. every month. from 6:30-8:00pm usually on the second Sunday of the month. We use the gentle sounds of singing bowls, gongs, crystal tuning forks and pyramids, sansula, monochord, indigenous percussion and frame drums, chimes, shruti box, the voice and throughout the year have special feature sound artists using didgeridoo, sitar, hand pan and tone drum, harmonium, kalimba, harp, flute, guitar, or whatever comes our way! Light weaving, prayerful light language and reiki are often part of these meditations. We have limited attendance and observe other precautions due to covid, so tickets are limited. As CDC guidelines are ever-changing we will continue to respect the health and beliefs of others, inclusive of everyone.
Leading the meditations is Lana Ryder, trained and experienced sound therapist of 20+ years, musician, holistic practitioner, licensed massage therapist, reiki master-teacher and certified holistic health coach with 50 years' experience in using sound, voice and music for healing, inspiration and transformation both personally and in community. Lana offers her trained associates, students and mentorees the opportunity to experience assisting in the meditations. Many have gone forward in feeling confident to offer their own group meditations and are doing very well!
Next Group Sound Meditation Immersion (sometimes called "sound bath" but is really much more than that) is March 13. Our beautiful sanctuary of sound is peaceful, uplifting and sometimes people find it to be healing in a number of ways. The deep relaxation certainly supports our immune systems. Tickets are available through Eventbrite: Sound Journey, The Inner Kingdom. We do start on time. Please plan to be in the room ready to start at least 5 minutes before 6:30 PM. No one will be at the front door to let you in after 6:25 pm. Plenty of free parking. For more detailed information and to purchase tickets:
Learn how to begin using sound, voice and music in the healing arts. Your choice of a 26 or 44 hour course is designed to introduce hands-on experience for holistic practitioners such as massage and energy therapists, yoga instructors, acupuncturists and hospice workers to begin using crystal and metal bowls, gongs, chimes, tuning forks, drums/percussion, sansula, kalimba, monochord, voice and other instruments. The 26 hour course lasts 3 months, and the 44 hour class is for six months. Write to us for an application at firstname.lastname@example.org
Next class begins February 8, 2022 depending on covid-19 impact and guidelines. Individual private classes are ongoing on a limited basis. Please contact Lana Ryder for more detailed information at email@example.com. Sound Therapy is a vast topic. Both courses introduce you to the basic science, principles and suggested protocols for working with a number of instruments. The 44 hour course gives you the opportunity to learn more than the singing bowls and tuning forks than the 26 hour course. Please understand that a weekend class does not make you a sound therapist. There is much more to it and we will get you started on the right path so that you have enough information to help you decide in which direction or what specific instruments you wish to pursue in more depth. A certificate of completion is given when you have met all requirements, including prerequisite reading, videos, practice sessions on clients and in class practicum.
Limited private students accepted for the 24 hour class with 10 hour practicum, $550 per student. This class is scheduled over 3-4 months. Private instruction takes place in the Soundwise Health Studio in Lancaster. Schedule is determined by availability of student and instructor, determined by their individual needs.

Frequencies and vibrations are not just about what we listen to. They are about everything, including what we choose to eat. A graduate of The Integrative Institute of Nutrition, Sound and Energy Practitioner Lana Ryder shares some tips on choosing more healthy vibe food. Lana's first studies in holistic medicine and natural living lifestyles began with an herbal medicine class at The Rosemary House in Mechanicsburg, Pa way back in 1969. Her education in holistic health has been ongoing ever since.
8 hour holistic business class taught by Lana Ryder, former business course instructor at two area massage schools. Lana wrote the 23 hour business curriculum for these schools based on her experience as founder and director of a successful holistic healing center of 11 years and experience and training as a television and radio account executive and medical practice manager. Lana also appreciates and uses an adaptive version of Sacred Economics as taught and practiced by author Charles Eisenstein.
Helping to birth the new earth, we must begin to let go of the old patriarchal business paradigm of competing and trying to win, over our fellow healers and lightworkers. Collaboration, cooperation and celebration of each other helps advance and include us all in the union and community of the new earth. Love, Peace, Unity and Inclusion are born of compassion and a generous heart.
