Welcome to the S&S Mystery School!
Thank you for your wish to share your gifts and explore the arts with us. We are grateful that our gathering has called forth your soul to be warmed by our fire. We bow to and welcome you!
Before we take our first steps into co-creation together, we would like to share a little of who we are and what we are looking for.
Sound & Silence is about energy, frequency, and harmony. Shared resonance, deep connection, collaboration and support are all important to us.
At our core, we are building a loving and lasting community, not a fleeting festival experience. So while artistic genius is greatly valued, what we value most, is the quality of your heart.
Our contributors share a collective desire to connect deeply and authentically with their audiences and each other. They create spaces that invite an energetic exchange, soulful interaction and deep healing.
"Pure Magic ... Sound & Silence is much more than a festival, it is like coming home. Home to a place, where my visions of how a new society could work got an example ... there is space for the heart is speaking, space for silence and expression, for love and creativity, for laughter and tears... and space for everyone's truth.
It is not about music ...it is beyond music, it is - what I felt since a while for myself but never found on a festival so far - about being and melting with all beauty we are in the field of universal sound that is surrounding us always, within nature, within silence, within a strong feeling of connection, and share this magic with everyone. A new tribe was born, (or maybe just remembered :-) ... thank you universe for guiding me to that place....thank you Corfu-tribe for the experience of the new earth community. Thank you love."

"Being invited to the Sound and Silence gatherings in 2016 & 2017 to join the group of international artists was the biggest honour of my career to date. The gatherings themselves took me on a journey of deep healing, radical inspiration and personal transformation. The days spent within this mothership of beauty, music and magical unfoldings, were genuinely some of the most profoundly affirmative experiences of bringing me home to who I truly am as a soul, an artist, and a being with a purpose. I will always have endless gratitude for Sarvaan for "seeing me" early in my career and inviting me to step up and stand alongside my idols - artists who continue to inspire me for both their work in the world musically and humanitarianly. I have so much love for these sacred gatherings and hope they grow from strength to strength, and that I am able to join you for many more to come."

"I bow down with such gratitude - there aren't adequate words to describe the depth of beauty that was present in so many forms these past 8 days. Sarvaan Ziva thank you from the expanses of my heart for having me as part of this exquisite group. It touches me deeply to know that each one of the beings present at the gathering is going back into their lives with a deeper knowing of the truth of their beautiful Beingness. This is how the world changes, with people who are willing to BE and to Shine and to deeply LOVE. I love you all."

I've been traveling all over the world the last 30 years playing in hundreds of festivals and this is the most unique gathering I have ever been to.
