About The Event
The benefits of sound as a medium to help improve wellbeing are becoming increasingly well known, practiced and recognised. This day long retreat will consist of a series of workshops giving participants practical experiences of some of the traditional techniques used in different cultures around the world including; a gong bath sound journey, (a holistic immersion in healing sound waves), Kiritan (a call-and-response style song), vedic chanting, vocal toning, drumming and dance.
The Gong Bath is a combination of sound healing meditation and transcendent chants to elevate mind body and soul and awaken and ignite your dormant energies. In a sound journey deep relaxation and stress release happens. Tom has some incredible gongs which will amaze and inspire you plus crystal and Himalayan singing bowls that will awaken mind, body and soul. Sometimes other instruments are used such as chimes, bells, didgeridoo, shamanic drums, Tibetan ritual instruments and many others, to weave a rich tapestry of sacred healing to take you on a profound journey of awakening and self discovery.
Kirtan is a part of yogic practice and is an easy and very accessible way to experience some freedom from the turbulence of the monkey mind. Tom is an experienced Kirtan leader and musician who will lead the Kirtan session and often plays harmonium, guitar, tabla drums and other instruments to create a sacred space to connect with our spiritual essence and create some divine vibes. Kirtan is non-denominational, the Universal language of Spirit, the song of the Soul.
Feel free to bring an instrument, drum, rattle or a song if you would like to but no prior musical ability is required in order to benefit from the day.
