- Do you want to get onboard with the Sound Healing wave that is RISING all around us?
Sound can carry information into places where light cannot go. It penetrates us to our very core. It is in the darkness that we can feel safe to let go, to surrender the stories of pain, suffering, and fear, and to allow a new story to emerge.
Sound rearranges our molecules, literally forging a new existence within us – this is the medicine of the future.
I have witnessed Sound guide people through the loss of a loved one, the healing of cancer, the birth of a child, letting go of addiction, building a business, and so much more.
Sound Medicine is BIG. There is a wave of frequency shift RISING within us, and Sound can lead the way into new harmonic ways of being.
Now, more than ever, we need steady, clear, confident people to steward and serve the Medicine of Sound.
I’m excited to share everything I know with you!
Hi, I’m Rakai’el!
When I was a child, I would lay on the grass after sunset and listen to music that seemed to come from the sky itself, and sounded like Angels.
When I mentored with Erica Sandstedt who is an incredible Shaman, Sound Healer & teacher, I longed to play the beautiful instruments she had with as much ease and finesse as she did.
But I felt awkward with Sound. It was something I admired, but had never learned. These magical instruments produced a crystalline sound that simultaneously called to me and confounded me. I felt frustrated and confused. Finally, I let go of my dream to become a Sound Healer and focused on other things.
Then I was called to move to Maui, where I received a profound activation of my voice. It was through the magic of sharing my song that I was gifted my first set of Crystal Singing Bowls. Ever since then, my whole life has changed.
I’ve had the great honor to collaborate with some incredible Sound Healers and artists, release an EP of my Light Language toning, co-created a Sound Bath album, and travelled to share Sound for everything from moon circles, weddings, and corporate & private events.
Now after leading over a 150 Sound Journeys for groups as large as 80+ to individual Sound Healings, I want to share it ALL with you.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING…
From the moment I experienced my first sound bath, I knew this was part of my life’s calling. As I read the information provided about the class, I felt such resonance and clarity. I could really tell this would be taught from a very authentic loving nurturing place. The investment was absolutely worth it.
I love how this course has provided real world changes and shifts within me, and my work! I had some really cool experiences during a few private sound bath events I hosted. Two clients shared with me that they felt like they had gone on a journey. They were conscious but unconscious. I realized that even though I thought I had been playing the same way, there must have been a shift within myself (and maybe partially my intention while playing) that allowed my clients to have that experience. It was really cool for me to witness! And really cool for me to appreciate that I have that ability!
My biggest shift from taking this course was learning to truly trust my intuition and know that I have this ability deep within my soul from multiple lifetimes. The community and connection within this course was so beautiful and amazing! It was like hanging out with a bunch of friends, sharing what we’ve learned, hearing everyone’s experiences, and how they have been integrating Sound Medicine into their lives. It was so personal and authentic. I enjoyed the additional suggested resources as well. It was a really beautiful course that covered so much. I appreciate you for teaching me, thank you Rakai’el!
I had been looking for a class or teacher to help me better understand my Sound Bowls, when synchronistically I received the invitation to join Shamanic Star Sound! I was so excited, and said yes to the journey – I couldn’t wait to learn more about how to better use Sound as Medicine. After taking the course, I feel like I can really tap into this sacred space. I feel like the harmony of playing the bowls was something I was looking for, for a long time, and now I have some sequences that are Awakening beautiful frequencies in me. When I sit down to play, I feel like I tap into this river of sound medicine and it flows through me, I know it is not me, I am just given access to this portal to provide healing for others. From this more clear and authentic space, I created a new retreat called Sacred Space, that I will be offering in May. This was all born from the sacred space energies that opened up for me in this class! This was a beautiful course and I am so grateful for you sharing all your sacred wisdom with us! Thank you. I bow to you!
I was hesitant at first to make the investment in myself, but my intuition kept raising the volume until I followed the call. Learning from and co-creating with sound is such a gift that I will be forever grateful for, it truly has been a magical gateway for me to come home to myself. I LOVED the opening guided meditations, those were soooooo good! I also loved connecting with everyone on the call – hearing their questions and where they are in their journey inspired me to keep moving forward on mine! I enjoy learning from Rakai’el, and love her energy so much! I found myself laughing along with her in each video! 🙂 Connecting in this way made the course that much more powerful.
Since taking the course, I have been connecting with my voice on a daily basis, and I find myself tuning in so much more into my daily life – to the sounds, frequencies, energies, harmonies and dissonance that I observe…I never want it to stop! I’ve also started to share my sound journeys with close friends and family. Continuing to deepen my connection with sound, and all of the instruments that have come into my life, is cracking me open even further, allowing me to journey along my soul’s path. Learning to co-create a meaningful journey with my instruments was definitely my favorite piece of the program. This process has allowed me to see more deeply into creating levels and layers to the journey in order to facilitate deeper healing, and soul-stirring visions for myself and others.
When Rakai’el first launched Shamanic Star Sound it sparked deep intrigue in me. I’ve taken some of her other courses, and can’t get enough of her incredible videos and recordings. I didn’t sign up for the first go-around of Shamanic Star Sound as I wasn’t sure what to do with it, and was unfamiliar with sound healing. I was afraid at first to invest so much into something I had never even tried, but I knew this would be a big important step for me and that it would pay off. I started going to local sound baths to get some in-person experience, and once I experienced the power of sound for myself, I knew immediately I needed to begin working with sound healing.
After signing up for the course I purchased my first set of Crystal singing bowls. The first time I played them, my body remembered how to play them and it just flowed so naturally – it felt like something I had been doing my whole life, or more accurately, for lifetimes. Even still, every time I play these instruments it is like I am being transported to a different time and space. It is incredible how much more of myself I have remembered and been able to confidently express since taking this course and working so intimately with sound.
Shamanic Star Sound is such a beautiful experience! Not only is it packed FULL of EVERYTHING I could possibly want to know about sound healing and leading sound ceremonies, but it is also SO EMPOWERING to actually apply these teachings and work with sound in the ways Rakai’el teaches about! It is so much fun and so transformative in such subtle and gentle ways. I feel like sound was a missing link for me for a long time, and without this course I’m not sure how I would’ve learned so much so quickly, or had the confidence to begin working with it how I have! Sound healing has changed my life, and I know this is just the beginning! I can’t wait to see where it takes me next!!
Rakai’el’s Shamanic Star Sound course is truly an experience not from this world. This is so much more than a Sound Healing course. It is powerfully multidimensional on so many levels.
Rakai’el is such a profound teacher. Her teachings are incredibly activating, calling a deep soul remembrance of the skillsets we carry from lifetimes. It awoke dormant parts of my soul from the very first minute I listened to her sound healing in an email that was sent to me. It literally activated my Soul Star Chakra and had me buzzing for days!! I knew instantly I needed to dive into the course!! The synchronicities that unfolded after that moment absolutely blew my mind and I finally awoke to my dharma in this lifetime which has set me on THE MOST BEAUTIFUL and transformational journey.
Rakai’el holds such a magical and safe container for us to REMEMBER our gifts… this empowerment allowed me to begin sharing and letting my magic out in a bigger way! As soon as the course was finished I began incorporating Sound Healing into my monthly Cacao Ceremonies which took it to another level, and I am now hosting a retreat coming up on the weekend which is a dream come true!!
Not only did I awaken to my soul purpose and begin sharing my magic, I actually healed an Auto-Immune disease too!!! The Alchemy of sound is such a liberating tool for healing. The gift Rakai’el has given me through being of service in this way brings me to tears of love and appreciation very often. I have now also taken all of Rakai’el’s courses which have paved such a beautiful path in being of service to the light, and assisting in anchoring the new earth frequencies. Mahalo Rakai’el forever filled with love and gratitude.
I said ‘Yes’ the second this course was announced without any hesitation. My motivation to hop on board was not necessarily to teach, but to gain knowledge. I had attended a Sound Bath in my community, and when I found out it there was a way to go deeper and understand even more how could I resist. I felt it was a great modality of self care and healing, and now I have the ability to spread this to others and share this gift!
Some of the biggest miracles that have come out of this has been within my own home. Creating our own sound baths together is one of the best times my children and I have. They were born with these gifts, and so are we all. We are all wisdom seekers as healers, most can be found within, but when you collaborate with someone else’s magick that you haven’t been exposed too it’s a blessing from the YOUniverse.
The course is laid out perfectly and is much more than just sound and music, it’s an adventure. I knew it was going to have scientific data to support it’s true medicinal use, but boy did this course take me by surprise, it was much more than I anticipated. This course will be one you revisit.. It’s a cycle of weaving the information into your current life… or shall I say spiraling back to heart and mind center with love frequencies. x0x0

I’ve been looking for guidance and information around Sound Healing for a while. I live in an area where there aren’t a lot of resources for Sound Healers, so when my friend told me about Rakai’el’s Shamanic Star Sound Course, I was so happy! After reading about the course it just felt right to sign up! Rakai’el is so relatable and genuine. I enjoyed her statement that she would provide the information, and we could take or leave what we needed. This is exactly what I needed to hear and experience, to see how others do it and then be able to make it my own! After taking the course, I have come to realize that I am stronger and more capable than I give myself credit for! I’ve only been doing this for a year, but the shifts that I feel within myself are so profound; I feel so comfortable and much more confident. My biggest takeaway from this journey is that this isn’t my first-lifetime helping others, and I’m exactly where I need to be! I am surrendering and trusting that this shift I have made for myself is encoded in my DNA! I personally learn better by seeing and doing, so I particularly enjoyed the fact that this course had so many amazing videos to watch! This course was absolutely perfect, thank you!!
When I saw a photo of Rakai’el surrounded by crystal singing bowls on Instagram, with the invitation to join Shamanic Star Sound, I knew I had to enroll. I am working towards my mission of bridging spirituality and psychology to treat my clients as a whole being, as well as one day hosting public sound journey events. This course is the perfect learning tool for me to be able to incorporate sound medicine into psychotherapy. I’ve learned alternative ways of expanding my consciousness, methods for healing the whole being, and ideas on sharing a shamanic experience with an entire group. I truly appreciated Rakai’el’s genuine self coming through the videos. It made learning feel approachable and engaging. I was very surprised how much I learned via online since I am someone who is typically better with in-person trainings. Thank you for a GREAT experience!
I have always been connected deeply to the art of music. It is a part of my lineage to express in this way and I always felt I had a different way about sharing my voice, I just hadn’t entirely discovered what that meant yet. As soon as I saw Shamanic Star Sound – it was an immediate YES for me as I have always loved sound healing and knew it could be a path for me to walk.
Since taking the course, I am now remembering more of my inherent abilities to share my voice and do so in a way that feels in such alignment and service to the world. I am reclaiming my light and acknowledging the call I’ve always heard to share music as therapy. I play for myself as well as for others wether in 1:1 energy healing session, during small gatherings, or larger events. It is fascinating and so much fun!
I said YES to Shamanic Star Sound because I’ve been curious about sound healing. I also LOVE going to sound baths, and I wanted to learn how to facilitate this sort of healing myself! It felt a little scary but SO good and exciting to be starting this path. Taking Shamanic Star Sound was the first step in a year long initiation into spiritual healing, and I’m so glad I did it.
I had been aware of, but ignoring, my spiritual gifts for so long, and taking this course helped me start standing in my power. Now, almost exactly a year later, I am such a different person. I have shed so much of the fear that’s been holding me back. I have awoken the spiritual healer inside me, rather than solely depending on my 3D knowledge of healing. I have said YES to so many things I would have been too afraid to before, and those experiences have been incredible. I am in so much more alignment with my soul’s mission.
My favorite topic covered was the integration of sound with essential oils, stones, etc. This knowledge really super-charged my healing practice, both with myself and working with patients! This was the starting point for me having a multi-modal healing practice. I really loved all of this course and am excited to take it again. I use the energetic hygiene and setting the container regularly!
What inspired me to say yes to Shamanic Star Sound was I had been craving a feminine energetic to sound alchemy, as all my previous teachers had been male. Since taking the course, everything has shifted. I began leading sacred sound ceremony temples as soon as the course completed. My sound alchemy took on more of a shamanic energetic than before. My voice has begun opening in ways I never imagined. I’m now leading cound ceremonies every month, recording guided sound meditations for online transformations, working my voice everyday, and swimming in the sound currents deeper than ever before! I’ve finally graciously stepped up to and honor my medicine as a Sound Priestess of the Rose and Moon, in honor of all sentient beings past, present, and future!
I’m so grateful for the way you show up to share your medicine! It’s inspiring, and has shifted everything in remembering my medicine on every level. Sisterhood reminds me of my own medicine, which is why I was craving another priestess as a sound teacher! I’m truly so pleased with this course. I got everything and more than I anticipated.

Q: Do you offer payment plans?
A: Yes! See above for details & choose the plan that works best for you!
Q: How does the monthly payment plan work? Will the charge show on my statement each month, one month exactly from when I first paid?
A: Yes, that is correct. If you choose the 3-month payment plan, you will see the charge once per month, for three months, on the date you first paid. For example, if you sign up and pay for your first payment on the 20th, the remaining two installments will pull on the 20th of the following two months.

Q: What if I decide I don’t want to take this course after I sign up? What is your refund policy?
A: Remember there are no “bad or wrong” decisions. You can’t F it up Sometimes when we choose to make an investment in ourselves – especially if it might bring more awareness into our lives, illuminating ways in which we’ve been holding ourselves back under the guise of playing safe – we can start to doubt our decisions and want to run away. (Sound familiar?). I totally know bc I’ve been there so many times. This is why I wrote the refund policy directly on the sales page under the sign-up button. Empowerment can be extremely threatening to the parts of ourselves that want to stay small. The vision I hold for you is one where you trust yourself completely, knowing that whatever comes up, you are strong enough, compassionate enough, and smart enough to handle it – especially the more you begin to work with the planetary energies as loving guides and allies. Place your hand upon your heart and feel how safe and held you are by your higher self. You’ve got this!! And here is the official Refund Policy from above: I want you to be intentional in everything you do. Place your hand on your heart and take a deep breath before you complete your payment. Read the affirmation on the payment page out loud. Really feel all of the people in your life who will benefit (most of all YOU) from this decision to invest in yourself. I always say, the money I spend on me comes back to me times 3! That said, if after 1 week from the exact date and time when the first module’s content has been released on 10/13, you don’t feel like this is for you, you have until 8am Pacific time on 10/20 to request a refund by sending us an email. After 8am on 10/20, no refunds will be offered. I honor this commitment you are making to yourself, and take your intention to participate very seriously. If you are not certain if this course is for you, please email us HERE with any questions you may have.

A: 100% YES! This course will be the best thing that ever happened to you as you begin your journey with Sound Medicine! I am so excited for you!!
Q: I don’t have any sound healing instruments yet, can I still take the course?
A: YES yes yes! It will give you everything you need to know to get set up to be an AMAZING Sound Healer!
Q: What kind of instruments do you teach about?
A: I only teach about those instruments I’ve played and can demonstrate for you (crystal singing bowls, crystal lyre/harp, crystal pyramid, tuning forks, koshi chimes, bells, rattles, rainsticks, ocean drum, practitioner crystal singing bowls). I will NOT be teaching about didgeridoo, gongs, Tibetan bowls – but you are still welcome to participate in the class if you have these instruments! 🙂
Q: Do I have to buy sound healing instruments to take the course?
A: Not at all! You can just sit back and learn, and then decided whether or not to purchase instruments.
Q: OMG I’m soooo excited to get some Sound Healing instruments!! Which ones do you recommend???
A: Yay!! I love your excitement!! As soon as you sign up, you’ll get access to a video where I describe everything about which instruments I recommend, where to get them, etc. I also went over the basics here.
Q: Do you offer a Sound Healing Certification with this course?
A: No. Sound healing is an unregulated field. There is no governing body that moderates certifications, and there are no legally binding stamps of approval in any form for the practice. Anybody who has created a certification in sound healing is really just making up their own set of parameters, and setting a list of things that the students have to accomplish in order to obtain their own version of a certification. Basically, it’s all made up. In my experience, I spent so much of the early part of my career trying to get out from underneath someone else’s validation. (In my case it was a little bit different because acupuncture is a regulated field and it is required by law that you are licensed.) I allowed that degree/certification/license, to stand in the place of my self-confidence, but it was external validation, so I wasn’t actually inherently confident in my abilities and in my skills. I had to do so much deprogramming around that. It is for that very reason that I do not have any certifications, deliverable homework assignments, required activities or hours of completion in any of my courses. It is because I KNOW what it feels like to be confined by someone else’s definition of my value – and that is NOT the reality that I want to create for anybody else. This way YOU are in control of your experience and your confidence level. You know the degree to which you have moved through the content of the course, and level of practical application you have created for yourself. The experience, and your integration and application of what you learned in the course becomes your validation. This is a natural activation of your Integrity and personal Sovereignty. You don’t need a piece of paper or my stamp of approval to do this work. If it’s in you it’s in you, and you can use the information in this course as a form of self-initiation to educate and empower yourself in the field of Sound Healing.
Q: Does your course have voice activation as part of the program?
A: During our 9-week journey, we cover so much in the world of Sound Healing, that I felt like adding vocal activations would be too much. Maybe I’ll add it as a bonus module in the future! Once you become a Shamanic Star Sound student, you get lifetime access to all the information, plus any additional content. And if you’re feeling really called to work with local alchemy right now, I highly recommend the work of my sister Marya Stark.
Q: Are there any live components as Zoom calls or an interactive Facebook group in this course?
A: Yes, there are two live Q&A calls and an interactive group. The group is not on Facebook, it’s on a platform that many are using instead called Mighty Networks. It’s a very lovely platform with no ads or distractions, and the group vibe we co-create is always really sweet.
Q: I have absolutely no Sound Healing experience, but I want to start to use it in my Shamanic work. Will the class be live or can I take it at my own pace?
A: Shamanic Star Sound is an all levels sound healing class, so no experience is necessary. All the training videos are pre-recorded, so you can go at your own pace. New content will be released every week for the eight weeks of the course. We do have two live Q&A calls together, one midway through the course, and one the week after. You have access to all of the content and any additions I make overtime for life! And every time we open the course again, we always invite the alumni to “walk again” with the new class, so you can always jump back into the full experience if you’re not able to integrate it all at this time.
Q: Can I do the Sound Healing and the Astro Empowerment and/or Remembering Lemuria courses at the same time? I’m sitting with this question. I have a few bowls, I use them regularly. I want to expand but I also don’t want to crowd my learning plate completely.
A: You know what I’m going to say, sister! Trust your heart! Ask the bowls! Do a meditation with them and ask them to help you to tune in more deeply with your inner guidance. As I always say, you know if you are called.
Q: Are your bowls 432 or 440hz frequency? Are any of them ‘pitch perfect’? Have you found it difficult to play with other people whose bowls are not pitch perfect or not the same frequency as yours? Where did you source yours?
A: I have two sets of frosted crystal singing bowls. Both are 432 Hz, and both are from a brand called Top Fund that you can find on Amazon. One set is perfect pitch (this is my main set. They also nest inside each other, condensing down into two carrying cases). It is definitely difficult to play with other instruments that are not 432hz, especially other crystal singing bowls. I’ve been able to get away with playing with 440 handpans/pantams, gongs, and metal singing bowls, but I have found it nearly impossible to play with 440 crystal bowls.
Q: Is your Sound Healing course only for women?
A: The Shamanic Star Sound is open to anyone and everyone who resonates with the sacred medicine of Sound! We need as many Keepers of Frequency and Carriers of Sound Medicine as possible on this planet at this time!! If you are feeling called to this collective mission, trust that!
Have a question that I didn’t answer here? Send us an email and we’ll answer your questions asap!
I am in deepest gratitude to all of my teachers for supporting me and guiding me on this path. I am especially grateful to Erica Sandstedt for everything she taught me about how to hold a safe and sacred space for deep transformation and healing using Sound Medicine, and how to navigate the multidimensional realms. I’d also like to thank Rich Raffals and Rene Jenkins for their Sound guidance and support.
Thank you so much for exploring the possibility of becoming a Carrier of Sound Medicine and a Keeper of Frequency. Our world is moving through so many powerful shifts right now, and Sound Medicine is here as a teacher, guide, and ally during these potent times. Sound truly is the medicine of the future, and I want to share everything I know with you so that you can serve your community now. It is so important. I believe in you.
Let’s do this!
With endless devotion to your eternal empowerment,
