Unveil the unique Song and Sounds of your Soul

Use your voice as a healing tool

Within you is an unparalleled soul voice – a powerful and beautiful tool of expression, given to connect and communicate with life. The Song of our soul is the intimate expression of our true nature, the spontaneous sound of our spirit. To truly sing is a journey of remembering who you are, getting out of the mind, and trusting in ourselves as we surrender to the spirit of sound in us.

‘The purpose of music is for you to become who you are, to bring what is inside of you into play, to spin a vibrating thread through you into the world, to spark life…’

This workshop is held as a ceremonial journey of deep discovery; unveiling our naked and untamed voice and awakening the power and free expression of our Souls song. We do not ‘learn to sing’, instead we unlearn and release the judgement, fears and blockages that hold us back from something that is our nature, so that we are able to get out of the way and ‘be sung‘ as the hollow flute.

This is a special opportunity to experience this journey in the beautiful land of Terra Booma where the elements of nature are so present. In this intimate setting with nature, we have the special opportunity to ‘sing the elements’ and explore the sound of Earth, Air, Fire and Water to connect to the spirit of creation and the spirit within, and allow the elements to sing through us as we open our voice to the song of the earth and return it as our offering of gratitude.

The journey is held by the guidance and teachings of ancient sacred ways that remind us what truly means to sing; You will remember how to use song as tribal people have done for millennia, to connect to the source and speak with the spirit of life, to celebrate, to pray and to give flight to our intentions and dreams, so that we can step deeper into our soul purpose in this life.

Our voice brings us immediately into connection with ourselves, each other and the profundity of the present moment. We will be weaving between sound and silence, resting in the stillness from where our sound comes from; In doing so we return to the source of Life itself. This is a Journey of coming home to ourselves, Our body is our portal, our Voice is our tool, our silence is our home.

Sweat Lodge Ceremony – The rite of Purification

The Sweat lodge is an ancient, sacred and powerful healing ceremony from the Native Americans of North America. A purification ritual to cleanse, heal the body and gain strength of spirit through reconnecting us with our hearts, our prayers, with the elements and all our relations.

The Sweat lodge is an ancient,sacred and powerful healing ceremony from the Native Americans of North America.. A purification ritual to cleanse heal the body and gain strength of spirit through reconnecting us with our hearts, our prayers, with the elements and all our relations.

The lodge represents the womb of the earth where we enter into the darkness and where we find the light within and are reborn. This is a beautiful space where limitations and blockages are released and we find a powerful connection within and to the spirit of life.

The actual lodge itself is a dome constructed of Bamboo placed in a circle with prayers made at each stage of the construction: covered with blankets so no light can enter. Stones are heated up in a fireplace outside and then placed in the center of the lodge. We sit in circle pouring water upon the hot stones – the Grandmothers and Grandfathers, the ancient wisdom keepers from the earth.

We will work with the four elements and the four directions, offering our sweat, prayers and songs, receiving the spiritual, emotional and physical cleansing and healing from the elements of earth, air, water, fire, amoung with sacred herbs, drum and songs.

When we leave the lodge we emerge from dark to light being spiritually reborn.

If for whatever reason you cannot or do not wish to enter the Sweat lodge you are invited to join the ceremony by making your prayers and keeping your presence by the fire and remaining outside the lodge. This can be an equally powerful healing experience.
