For millennia, indigenous people have communicated with the deep wisdom of the earth and the healing powers inherent within sacred sound.

DATE CHANGE March dates will bechanged to later in teh year. Stay tuned!

As we remember this way of living, of being in harmony and balance with All That Is, we truly become a bridge between Heaven and Earth – aware of the divine nature of ourselves and all of creation.

Through our heart felt sense, shamanic practices, meditations, gentle energy activations, story and direct experiences of sacred sound work, we learn to be in creative partnership with nature – to listen with and be guided by the land, the trees and the herbs – for support and spiritual insight on our unfolding journeys.

Everything that exists has a vibration – everything is an orchestra of sound and light. Allowing the power of sound to resonate and express through our being opens up a more acute and dynamic perception, and our heart, creativity and compassion can blossom.

                             This special retreat is very experiential, with individual
                             and group exercises to support our communication with
                             nature and sound, and to deepen into a greater sense
                                                   of union with Beloved.
