About us

This is a retreat to empower your voice in freedom as a healing instrument for love.  

You don't need to be a singer to use your voice as a healing tool. Each and every person's unique voice is needed on this planet at this time, to help raise our vibration into Harmony with the Earth.

“Harmony is the source of manifestation, the cause of its existence, and the medium between God and man.” ~Hazrat Inayat Khan

Join Astaria, Light of Sound, in Costa Rica for this transformational vocal expression retreat.

Not only will you immerse yourself in the world of your voice, you will also rejuvenate your being within the natural jungle environment that Casa Antorcha is situated. You will be served delicious healthy vegan meals to support your body and energy during the retreat and have space to dive deep within yourself to connect to your true essence.

Astaria is one of the most gifted and talented healers I have ever met. Her sound baths are transformative and incredibly healing and powerful. I could feel the healing vibration of the music through my entire body and it relaxed my parasympathetic nervous system.

Venue Highlights

Costa Rica is a very special natural place that holds a strong loving vibration. The sound of the jungle is very powerful!
We will attune to the frequency of Mama Earth, opening the ear of our heart to Her Songs, while allowing our voice to be empowered as an instrument for healing.

Casa Antorcha (Spanish for Light Torch House) is nestled in the heart of the jungle, a peaceful place where the sounds of nature create a wild symphony for the senses.
This space is held with the deep intention of reconnecting to our nature. The house is made mostly of local and natural materials and the water used is all collected from the tropical rains. It is a pleasure for us to receive you here.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Because I sometimes work up to 16 hours a day, and need time to stop and breathe. Mary
