Sound has been used as a spiritual vehicle throughout all cultures around the globe to bring community together, to raise energy, to dive deeply into Shamanic journeys and for our own personal healing and awakening. Throughout this experiential retreat you will have a chance to experience sound on many levels in support of your own personal healing journey. The retreat will be framed by Loving-kindness Meditations to provide refuge and safety for the community of participants and will also include meditations on sound and music.
Awakening Through Relationships

Learning to work with both the Self and its relationship to Other can be frustrating, challenging, but also deeply liberating.
