KliK® is a project of applying the sound of sound bowls in working with children.
KliK® means “sound in children’s groups” and a program according to which children’s pedagogues and therapists for children in kindergartens can use the sound of sound bowls in everyday play and daily events in groups and individually, stimulating the development of motor skills and emotional abilities of children. KliK® contributes to the creation of optimal conditions for the efficient implementation of cognitive programs.
Strengthening of efficiency – developing of learning skills
The overall goal of the KliK® project is sensuality, awareness raising and strengthening of the basic skills needed for observing, learning and solving problems.
By such basic abilities we mean, for example, good, safe and conscious perception of the body. The body is our main contact medium for the inner and outer world. We feel stimuluses and impulses by the body, also receive important signals and communicate (gestures – facial expressions).
Creating pre conditions for concentration and attention
The physical vibrations of sound bowls create vibro-tactile stimulans that can be used for specific stimulations. In addition, the auditory impulse relaxes and reduces stress with harmonious sounds. Relaxation is a pre condition for concentration and attention, thus making it easier to adopt and apply the assigned lessons.
The medium of sound bowls, within the pedagogical application of sound, enables a holistic approach at all levels
The training within Peter Hess® sound pedagogy is intended for professional pedagogical and therapeutic work and ends with a certificate – KliK® expert.
In KliK® seminars we learn about sound and games that belong to today’s concepts and theory of learning (cf. G. Huether, M. Spitzer). They are useful not only for raising awareness of the physical image, but also for training in society and helping to develop communication skills.
Our goal is to teach children how they can use the knowledge and skills they have learned and on their own with responsibllity positively influence the improvement of the learning process.
Different experiences are harmonized, which leads to success in work. Success contributes to the development of a sense of self-efficancy. It inspires our children to grow up into strong, creative and responsible people.
Education for the KliK® program is an offer that allows you to meet the growing demands for professionalism at the basic level and very quickly facilitate everyday work with children.
Price of programs and areas of work
The education for the program “KliK® – sound in children’s groups” is intended for pedagogues and therapists from the primary sector and their good cooperation, which is necessary to facilitate the transition of children from kindergarten to school.
Institutions and areas of work for the application of the KliK® program
- living room
- elementary schools
- occupational therapy
KliK® enables teachers to use different, systematic and creative applications of sound bowls in working with children. They are a stimulus and accompaniment in the game that cannot be compared to any other medium. Sound bowls create a harmonious atmosphere in the group and facilitate the work of teachers.
The KliK® program can be effortlessly integrated into the curriculum and further contribute to the learning effects and create a balanced and relaxed atmosphere.
Sound bowls are available in many kindergartens in Europe. Many teachers have accumulated rich experience in working with sound bowls.
Based on these experiences, the Peter Hess® Institute has developed a educaton concept that deepens 4 aspects of this paper:
- Large collection of games with sound bowls in kindergartens
- Experience with Peter Hess® sound massage
- Stimulation of learning
- Development of speaking skills
- Strengthening self-confidence – developing the ability to learn
- Creating pre conditions for concentration and attention

We hear long before we are born
The ear is fully developed with all their functions after 4-5 months from fertilization.
We hear much longer before we are born, and research related about dying shows that the sense of hearing is last that lost. Our ear is not only an auditory organ but it is also responsible for many other body functions.
Research by a French doctor, Alfred Tomatis, connects almost all cerebral nerves with the ears. The ears are in a unique way neurologically connected with the optic and oculomotor nerves and are therefore connected with both sight and movement.
Impulses from the ear lead to the larynx, bronchi, heart and intestinal tract. This means that our voice, breathing, pulse and digestions are under the impact of ears.
On the examples of listening games, in addition to the entire aspect of perception, we also monitor the perception of volume, direction of movement, volume, ie. auditory context.
Education for Peter Hess – KliK® experts and Peter Hess – KliK® practitioners consists of 4 modules
