Sound Healing Retreat

Friday 30th November – Sunday 2nd December 2018

Our most popular retreat is back! Embrace the rhythm of life as we explore using sound to take us into our inner world of peace and joy.

Be immersed in a weekend of soulful music, sound healing, rhythmic workshops, restorative yin, deep meditation and bhakti yoga. Our Sound Healing Retreat is a treat for the senses and unlike anything you will have experienced before.

Once you see what’s on offer, and the amazing people we’re collaborating with, you’ll understand why we’re so excited to bring you this event!

Live Piano Concert and 7 Course Degustation Dinner

Classical Pianist, Katy Tsai and Happy Buddha Master Chef, Khanh Doan

The highlight of the Sound Healing Retreat will be an amazing 7 course degustation dinner with a matching musical performance exploring the seven energy chakras. Katy Tsai is an incredible classical pianist with over 36 years of experience, playing concert halls all over the world, and with three albums to her name. One of her most beautiful and healing works is the album Scarlet to Violet. An original seven track virtuoso composition which traverses through the seven chakras of our energy body. Matched to this exquisite musical performance will be a divine seven course degustation dinner created especially for this event. Our very own Master Chef, Khanh Doan, will lovingly prepare delicious delights to match each of the seven tracks. You’ll be nourished inside and out – total bliss for all the senses!

Crystal and Tibetan Bowl Sound Healing

Adriana Perez

To commence the retreat, we will be immersed in the mesmerising and healing vibrations of a sublime crystal and Tibetan bowl sound bath. Adriana is a sound therapist who skilfully utilises the power of these amazing instruments for healing and meditation. Crystal singing bowls are only one of two instruments capable of producing a perfect sine wave, also known as pure tone. This perfect wave is capable of correcting imbalances in the human body through the process of resonance. The busyness of city life will be dissolved as we descend into the present moment and experience a heart opening meditation of unparalleled depth.

Drumming Circle and Body Percussion

Emily Cooper

Uniting and making music together connects us socially and spiritually -– and we believe this is vital for our well-being. Emily Cooper from Hands Heart & Feet will take you on a healing drumming journey which will leave you feeling empowered, energised and connected on a whole new level.

Yin Yoga Class and Live Didgeridoo Sound Healing

Courtney Louise with Lulu & Mischka

There’s nothing that restores and rejuvenates the body and mind quite like a yin yoga class with Courtney Louise, our passionate yoga teacher here at Happy Buddha. Now imagine combining that with the healing sounds of Lulu & Mischka and a live didgeridoo! If you’ve never had a didgeridoo played directly over your heart this alone will be an unforgettable experience.

Meditation with Brain Wave Entrainment

Ethan Drozd

Have you ever wished there was a way to help calm your busy mind? The good news is, there is. Using sounds called isochronic tones it is possible to synchronise or “entrain” the brain to whatever frequency one desires. Brain wave entrainment is still a relatively new and little known breakthrough technology which helps to reduce stress and anxiety and bring the mind to a place of peace and calm. Ethan has been studying and practicing meditation and brainwave entrainment techniques for over 10 years. In this session you will have the opportunity to experience dropping into a deep meditative state that you will be able to effortlessly replicate outside of the retreat.

Live Kirtan and Sacred Chanting

Lulu and Mischka

Kirtan, also known as Bhakti yoga, is another form of sound meditation. What’s so beautiful about this form of meditation is that it is effortless and joyful; the music does the work for you as you flow with the melody and rhythm. The songs are ancient mantras which have been chanted for thousands of years by yogis and devotees in India and contain a transformative power and healing energy. Lulu and Mischka are a divine couple that travel the world gathering these ancient mantras and fusing them with modern melodies, soothing guitar and the magical sound of the harmonium. This year they have release their 3rd album ‘Enchanted’ – a live studio recording. It will be a very special treat to conclude this Sound Healing Retreat with their joyful heart songs.
