Healing Sound Retreat - Exmoor National Park:4th - 6th November

A calm and safe place to come and put life into perspective. The gongs and gong baths took me to a sublime state and was very consciousness raising. New Place was as always nurturing.

Join us for an immersive weekend of rest and realignment with the healing sound of Nature and the Gongs. Give yourself valuable time out as you experience the harmonic qualities of sound and silence. And what more perfect place than the inspiring setting of Exmoor National Park with her coastal walks and peaceful woods. Within the ancient festival of Samhain you are invited to cleanse and release that which no longer serves your highest good. Let this frequency rising experience help you to open doors to the mystery of Life and dive deep!

New Place will be our haven to connect and listen to our inner voice. With a blend of gong baths, meditation, walking, private reflection, fireside storytelling, home-cooked locally sourced vegetarian/vegan food, peer-to-peer sharing, fresh air – including some solo time in Nature, you will come away feeling lighter, clearer, energised and more in touch with your intuitive Self and inner guidance.

Our generous host Heather will provide you with comfortable accommodation, delicious home-cooked vegan food, the luxury of her wonderful house / garden and home to our retreat.

* Relax deeply with a daily gong bath to help cleanse and clear your chakras

* Let Nature cradle and inspire you

* Practice grounding and tuning in to your higher Self

* Deepen your ability to listen and come into a state of ease and Presence

* Discover the rich warming sounds of Silence

* Experience meaningful connection, creative inspiration & storytelling

* Enjoy the peace of mindful breathing, walking and personal reflection

* Soothe away stress and tension with healing sounds

Wonderful singing, storytelling - the content and structure was perfect.  I feel so blessed to have been part of it. It shows me quite clearly that when we follow our intuition we are greatly rewarded.
