Facilitating: Healing Journey to your Soul Essence
This inner journey is a gift to you. Gosia Anna Sereda provides a healing channel and opens with her words deep aspects within you that want to be healed, liberated and seen. Further this yourney helps you to open for your own unique gifts and aktivates your individual life purpose/potentials through the essence of love. It is no coincidence that you are sitting amidst this group. Your soul wants to share something within you, heal old wounds, express itself freely with its unique gifts and finally arriving and beeing here in peace and grace. This healing space stands for this and more.
Supported and carried by incomparable sounds of the sound mystic Mitsch Kohn, which can touch us "like coming from infinity" infinitely and support and anchor your healing process.
Channeling multi-dimensionally, Caroline combines her subtle connections with Gosia's and Mitsch's. She invites you to open your senses, and connect with the cycle of the in & out breath of your own heart, with the Universal Heart, merging together. Bringing presence of your own being as well as of the global planetary entity and its current shifts.
The space will be opened at the right moment for deeper recognition & releasing: The participants will have the possibility of asking individual questions. Gosia will open herself to the corresponding soul field and begin to read both in the subconscious inner world and in the conscious space of the soul...
Caroline will assist with individual and group channeling coupled with the cosmic 'weather', opening awareness to the interconnection of all. She will transmit new downloads and activation in the fields as well as guiding through the integration of the week together.
Since 2007 Gosia Anna Sereda accompanies people in their self-empowerment, gives tools for self-help and supports in the re-connection into their pure soul essence through healing treatments, soulreadings & groupreadings. Her clear channel, her sensitivity and the connection to the divine source is her gift to people. Her single readings and her soul-letters gives her great joy. She „reads“ the energy of people & their subconscious inner world, believe systems and their environment (workspace, family, partner…). She also provides informations about health, tools to heal relationships and gives impulses for solutions from recurring (ancestral) patterns. Actually her main concern is to show & activate the individual life purpose/potentials. Her own past is marked by aberrations and distractions. She knows about the unfortunate search for meaning of life & the importance of living life meaningfully. Therefore she loves to support people in walking their soul path.
Channel, gridwalker and cosmic catalyst, Caroline connects multi-dimensionally with the multiverse, beings, lives, that we all are. It serves and translates into energy activations, upgrades, clearing and readings for people, animals, lands and gateways at the cellular and collective levels.
Facilitating: Conscious Masculinity (Also the MC of our Open Mic)
Darren will be taking us through his process he calls - Heroic Consciousness: A Journey Through the Archetypes of Masculine Empowerment is a four-part course created by Darren Austin Hall to guide men through engagement of the four major masculine archetypes (King, Warrior, Magician and Lover). The course is a dynamic intersection of philosophy, prayer, guided meditation, dream-work, qigong and sound therapy. As each archetype is explored, it is commonplace for men to find themselves being profoundly activated and roused to virtue as the archetypes are truly hard-wired in human consciousness, albeit obscured by social conditioning. By taking this course you can expect to unearth your true power through identifying with each of the four archetypes, nourishing your personality with multi-dimensional dynamism and a diversity of rich character growth.
Darren Austin Hall "The Multidimentional Musician" has spent much of his life being enchanted by the sacred power of music and sound. Initially, Darren discovered this ability during his childhood, when in moments of solitude, he would find himself impressed upon by a critical mass of interstellar music and channeled sounds. From his earliest memories as a child, Darren recalls hearing music constantly in his mind, so much so that every night he would sing himself to sleep, sometimes upwards of hours, while trembling in ecstatic in his bed and even banging his head on his pillow as a makeshift drum. He noted that especially when he was ill with fever or some other illness, he would go to this ecstatic practice of music as a means to bring him back to health, intuitively so.

She holds space for and shares space with individuals, couples and groups to explore and expand their own awareness of Energy, Body, Mind, Soul and Heart. Simona is devoted to share the Way back to the Essence and the re-awakening of the courageous and willing to take the big Jump into the Unknown and into the Mystery, flying on the Wings of Magic.
Simona was initiated into the Shamanic Arts by the Spirit of her grandmother, a creole woman of an african lineage from French Guyana, in the heart of Amazonia, a psychic, medium and medicine woman in direct and deep connection with the World of Spirit and of Pachamama. She devotedly shares sacred Cacao Ceremonies directly guided by Spirit and powerful, liberating and electrifying Tantric Activations.
WORKSHOP: Simona’s call at the Sound & Silence Gathering is to initiate you to the Secret Mysteries of your true Feminine Essence as a sacred “womb-an-ess”, creating a safe, loving spirit-guided space for you to remember and reconnect to your unique flavors, sounds, colors, inner beauty, unapologetic creative power and melting softness. It’s an embodied journey back home, into your sovereign Heart, into your luscious sensual body, back into the bliss and luminous darkness of the Cosmic Womb, back to inner silence and active listening, dancing between movement and stillness, feeling the energy arising and weaving from the inside to eternity, back to flow, glow and surrender in deep trust.
The Shine Playshop is a fun and exhilarating tripartite process. Following the Move ~ Listen ~ Be formula, we will essentially fit a mini Sound & Silence gathering into a 2 hour interactive group experience, with the intention to playfully and lightly let it all hang out. During the Move section, we will work on grounding exercises (shaking, jumping, skipping, etc) to prepare the body for flight. During the Listen phase, we will open the throat using voicing exercises (catharsis, gibberish, laughter yoga, etc) before entering our final stage, which is an invitation into stillness and pure Being. This final stage will be soft dancing followed by a guided meditation and sound healing.
Sarvaan is the creator of Sound & Silence gatherings, and a man on a mission to bring more and more joy into the world. His events explore the arts through frequency and energy flow, while seeking the depths of authenticity and the expansion of the human heart and soul. A lover of nuance and subtleties, he is always experimenting with ways to slip a new and unique story into the unfolding of each event. He wishes all who come to S&S walk away mind blown and totally transformed. And yet, as much as he loves all the magic at Sound & Silence, what he loves most is connecting creative souls, and watching their collaborations and co-creations spread far out into the world. He is fond of the phrase "Everything done with love, is Art" and he believes that even brushing your teeth can be artful, if done with love.
