You have arrived to the place where Sound & Silence meets in joyful celebration and heart-centered collaboration - A loving, safe and sacred space for highly sensitive souls to deeply relax into being, while enjoying the rapturous and bounteous artistry and workshops often found at the much larger festivals, yet without the maddening crowds, loud sounds and general over-stimulation. With a maximum of only 333 (generally 222) like-minded and kind-hearted souls in attendance, we hold a vibrant & ecstatic yet gentle and intimate container which gives our guests the feeling of spaciousness, along with plenty of room to feel the expansive nature of our exquisite offerings.
Our sacred gatherings host many gifted musicians, dancers, yogis, poets, group facilitators, artists and healers who have all chosen to contribute their talents in the spirit of loving and holy exchange, to help make what started as a simple vision, turn into the wonders of creation! With guided meditations, yoga, dance and healing music leading the way, we will enter into the blissful realms of sound and silence, and the joyful states of stillness and movement...AND WE DO THIS ALL ON ONE STAGE ONLY! We believe in traveling together as a family, so we are not spread out with multiple stages and too many choices...one program, one stage, one family, one LOVE.
All of our gatherings offer elements of: • Daily concerts and other artistic performances • Group sessions of yoga, meditation, sound healing and dance • Wide range of body/mind healing sessions • Healthy, organic, vegan and vegetarian food • Plenty of time to enjoy nature and integration • Lots of conscious community!
"While Sound & Silence is highly festive, it's not a festival, not really. It looks like a festival but it feels much more like a retreat. It's guided, it's orchestrated and it's extraordinary. A week with us is like a 7 day song, placing and pairing melodious and well timed notes into a hypnotic symphony - one sound leading to the next, always honoring the silence in-between, while enjoying ecstatic crescendos and moments of soft lulls, all ending in that pure and blissful space
BEYOND THE MUSIC
In fact, we are a well balanced and variety filled SacredART gathering. Not a music festival, as many think. Each day we offer about 16 hours of activities, and of that, only about 4 hours is dedicated to concerts. Our intention is to create a captivating, abundant and delicately designed program with a high level of talent, yet all on one stage and in one space, taking us on one collective journey. As the saying goes: "We are better together."
So there is no need to decide between various events and, therefore, there is no FOMO (fear of missing out). We also limit our ticket sales to only 333 guests, keeping it small, intimate and inclusive. In this way, we are more like a large retreat with an exquisite offering of music, dance and the meditative arts..."

These gatherings will always be intimate, mindful and artistic, rooted in the heart and with the spirit of togetherness, collaboration and celebration. Our carefully selected performers are not only gifted with great talent, but they are also warm hearted people with an eagerness to support, collaborate, connect and create as well. They join us from start to finish and their presence, openness and accessibility are just one of many reasons why Sound & Silence has become a unique gathering sought out by both performance artist and guest alike. There is a shared resonance between all of us in attendance, a kindness and joy that spreads from smiling face to smiling face.
These gatherings will always be about quality over quantity. We will never be a big gathering. We feel that keeping it small and intimate is a big reason behind the special vibe and strong unity we create together. Our focus is, and always will be on creating an abundance of magic for all to enjoy.
These gatherings will always be a great place to learn and try new things. From the first rays of the morning sun until well after the sun goes down, participants will gather on the sacred grounds of an ancient land, sampling music and meditative arts from far reaching lands and widely varying backgrounds and spiritual pathways. Zen, Tantra, Sufism, Astrology -- you name it and you can likely find it here.
These gatherings will always be open to all people from all backgrounds and faiths. We have no single dogma or creed at Sound & Silence, rather we are a collection of diverse individuals believing in the Oneness of all beings and the beauty of all pathways. You don't need to be a great meditator or be able to recite the Vedas. The only requirement of our guests is that they come with an open mind and open heart.
With healing hearts and exquisite arts leading the way... we will enter into the joyful of sound & silence, and the blissful realms of movement & meditation. For a short time, we will sing & dance to our hearts content, enter into sacred silences & moments of pure bliss, and experience what it feels like to be fully alive! Come Join the Sound & Silence Tribe in for an unforgettable celebration in paradise, where the days are long and the nights inviting!
