We welcome you on an Odyssey... into the heart space, beyond the senses, among conscious community, and into the precious nature of paradise. This is no ordinary gathering. In fact, at one point, we even called it a festival, because indeed we are celebrating this sweet life. However, we soon realized that this was more than a festival – it has become a living retreat, a conscious community of heart-centered beings from all walks of life who come together to radiate love and share moments of sheer joy and captivating experiences.
These gatherings are also a return to the essence and purity of live music, dance and the meditative arts. We are a conscious & clean gathering with no drugs or alcohol. AND WE BELIEVE TO TRAVEL AS ONE FAMILY - so there is only ONE stage and ONE program...not an overwhelm of choices; instead we journey together with intimacy, mastery, love & community <3
We invite you to envision this collective as a three part active meditation in which we will journey consciously from ‘activity’ to ‘non-activity’ from ‘doing’ to ‘non-doing’ from ‘body’ to ‘spirit’ from ‘earth’ to ‘space’! Our week together reveals a wide diversity of offerings, each day presenting sessions related to the theme of Move~Listen~Be, respectively. MOVE focuses more on movement based practices, LISTEN will offer more music & sound healing, and the BE will share more meditation & non-verbal workshops.
These magical gatherings take place in a handful of special locations worldwide. Far from cities and always in a powerful nature space near a healing body of water, we come together to deeply listen to our individual heart song and the songs of the earth. If you are ready to deep dive into the spirit realm, commune with a conscious tribe of heart-centered souls & celebrate life, then please join us at one of these magical gatherings as we journey into the heart through music, dance, yoga & community!
HOW IT ALL UNFOLDS...
We begin the Sound & Silence Experience with our focus on MOVE - 2-3 delicious days of connecting to and celebrating the body & spirit through dance, yoga & conscious movement-based practices. We have experienced that to express & channel physical energy can have a profound effect on our ability to discover inner silence. Thus, we created this section to MOVE the body, breath & energy so we can celebrate our journey into the heart, into being.
During these 2-3 days, we will explore the physical & non-physical realms through ecstatic dance, dance workshops, dance meditations, yoga, active meditations & more. Though we will include similar elements to the other days of Sound & Silence, this particular section will focus more on offering conscious movement-based practices to further prepare us for the journey into ecstasy.
Through MOVE, our vision is to inspire, connect, play and celebrate life. This part of the gathering is where you can sink into your body, breathe deeply and feel fully. It is where you can welcome the sunrise with sun salutations and dance away with the sunset. It is a playground for laughter, tears, expression, healing & release.
Here we also ground and prepare our bodies for the big lift off in the days to come...
The second section of this triad is LISTEN, 2-3 incredible days of connecting to the heart through the power of sound, musicality & meditative arts. When we actively LISTEN with our whole being, we awaken to the magnificence of each moment, allowing connection, co-creation & gratitude.
It is here, in LISTEN, that we find the balance of pure artistry and authenticity of being, that delicate edge which exists between sounds & silence, music & meditation. During these days, we will journey through sound healings, musical satsangs, conscious concerts, sound improvisations, kirtans, story telling, as well as keep connected to the body through dance, yoga & active meditations. Though we will include similar elements to the other two gatherings of this triad, this particular section will focus more on offering conscious sound-based practices to further prepare us for the journey into silence. Teachers, performers, musicians and participants from all over the Globe gather here in paradise to share their passion together as One.
Through LISTEN, our vision is to inspire, connect & commune. This is the space where you can commune through musicality. It is the gathering for finding your soul song, your spirit tribe, your voice and your rhythm for this sacred life.
Here is where we hit the highest highs, and ready ourselves for the big shift bringing us into BEing...
The third and final sequence of Sound & Silence is BE, 2-3 blissful days of integration & connecting to the spirit through silence, sound healing, meditative arts, massage & simple being. When we celebrate the meeting between sound, movement and stillness, we can simply BE.
BE is also our time to process, integrate and reflect. It is our soft landing and coming home after several days of flying high through the heavens. Here, we learn to be silent again, to feel and experience in dozens of new ways. Carefully chosen musicians, healers, yoga and massage teachers will help us bridge the gap between meditation and solitude, and shared listening and learning how to communicate with a touch, a glance. Each day is focused on bringing the individual fully into the present moment while being in a deep listening space, allowing the listener to become the sound...
Sound & Silence is a journey; an initiation into the mystery of mysteries. Join us as we go beyond music and meditation into the rapturous realms of pure joy and ecstasy. It's all just a small step away...
