illuminating hearts: Heart Fire + the Secret of Sound

“Certain forms of music, like beautiful fragrances, awaken associations in us that are primordial, eternal, and ultimate. These timeless associations call us to the core of our spiritual being.” – Wayne Teasdale

All that exists in the cosmos, including human beings, consists of sound vibrations, called nāda. Reignite your heart fire and light up the world.

The Weekend’s Sound Events

“The gong…is an inter-vibratory system. It is the sound of Creativity itself. One who plays the gong plays the universe.” – Yogi Bhajan

Blossom your heart and soul with illuminating hearts in a restorative resonance, multi-instrumental sound bath called Organic Sound Alchemy. Musical traditions and instruments from around the world, such as gongs, didgeridoos, flutes, and bell bowls, to name a few, blend in a channeled sound journey, unique to the vibration of the group gathered. Follow the strike of the gong, the lilt of the voice, the drone of the didgeridoo, the tone of the bowls, and resulting resonance across all frequencies into infinite drops of emptiness. Step through the sacred threshold of sound and vibration into beingness.

Everyone and everything, including this planet, the stars and you, has a signature frequency that is magical and alive. We call your signature frequency your song. Using vocal toning and dynamic instruments, we sound you into wholeness. The sound acts as a non-invasive vibrational massage at the cellular level, supporting the embodiment of your song. Discover being “of sound mind and body.”

Organic Sound Alchemy stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, providing an antidote to the over-stimulation of the sympathetic nervous system found in modern life. Alchemize, transform and whole yourself today. Love your life out loud. Each sound event has a theme throughout this special weekend:

Heart Fire Alchemy: Journey into your sacred heart to activate your fire within and in turn light up the world around you. Your illumination catches on, around, and through the planet.

Inner Sound Alchemy: Each of us has an inner sacred sound. Let the positive frequencies of the ancient instruments help you drop into that sound.

Soul Journey: Let the soundscape be a gate to the wisdom inside you. Journey to your inner shaman and sage to for healing and to discover answers to your deepest questions.

Full Moon Alchemy: Harness the strength and sweetness of the Strawberry moon to amplify your intentions and renew your spirit.
