Both Scania and Heike are local to the area and have held many workshops at Gaunts which has fabulous grounds, a lake, woodland and a pool which can all be enjoyed exclusively by the group .

    It’s been on our radar for a while now to create an immersive & healing retreat. To allow individuals to take time for themselves within a beautiful space, surrounded with nature, freedom and flexibility. To offer an accessible affordable space that people can come to reboot, rebalance and reintegrate .

    In circle and alone, using all elements (fire, wind, earth, water and air) we experience Sound Medicine and access Portals into our depths. With the support of Scania and Heike and our retreat family, this journey is possible to allow you to relax and come back home to yourself transformed.

    We will acknowledge that we have just passed the Summer Solistice when this retreat starts.This open and perfect place is perfect to access visible connection between sky and earth, body and soul for deep Gong work, drumming, singing, healing and celebration. You are welcome to have private retreat time as well as integration when you want it.

    We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. You can do all of the workshops or dip in when you feel like it. It is after all your retreat time.

    The intention behind this Sound Medicine retreat is to dive into the healing alchemy of sound medicine. Sound healing is rooted in the principle that everything in existence is made of micro-vibrations and to keep our body/heart/mind in good health it makes sense to keep ourselves in tune. Through vocal practices, healing instruments, intention and tuning ourselves back into nature, we are able to bring ourselves back into vibrational alignment.

    This retreat is suitable for all adults and all levels of experience, all we need is an open heart. Great care will be taken to ensure that everyone feels they have support and feels safe and comfortable at all times.
