There are times in all our lives when we feel stuck, lost and without direction. There are plenty of reasons why this might happen: the end of a relationship, a bereavement, stagnation in your career, children leaving home, a period of ill health, or feeling like you made a wrong turn somewhere and can’t find your path. And it can be really hard to find the time and space to reflect and process what’s going on away from the hustle and bustle of your daily life.
On this Sound Healing retreat you will share in a guided group conversation, get creative with somatic exercises, play the Flow Game, and work with the healing effect of Gongs, to set your intentions for your best life going forward, and find Your Path Revealed.
Sound Healing meditations provide the framework for this journey. We live in a world where mind and logic have priority, and we lose touch with the wisdom of our bodies. But when we slow down, listen and tune in, we realise that our bodies literally resonate with the story of our past, and that we can raise our vibrations for our highest future potential. Gongs relax us into deeper brainwave states so that our inner experiences, beliefs and emotional blocks can be revealed, and as we are mainly liquid, their powerful frequencies have the capacity to heal deep-seated energy blocks in the body.
On this retreat we'll work with Planet Gongs:
Saturn: for looking back and taking stock.
Mercury: for communication and finding your voice.
Nibiru: for setting intentions for the future so you have a focus for your path and a framework in which to make changes and to be in flow.
At the end of the Sound Healing Retreat feel refreshed and empowered, and in alignment with your highest intentions for ‘Your Path Revealed’.
