About This Event

HEARTSONG-a 5 soundhealing and voice exploration with yin and restorative yoga in Portugal.

Do you long to connect more deeply with yourself?

Do you want to free your voice?

Would you like to to explore practices that cultivate inner peace?

Come and connect with your highest wisdom through the vibration of sound! Siobhan and Gavin will take you on a journey through an array of practices to awaken the heart and nourish the soul. We will be using the HEART SUTRA as a central focus throughout the retreat. This powerful mantra alleviates suffering and encourages us to reach for the highest wisdom; the wisdom of the heart and a deeper more compassionate way of being.

We will also be working with world chant & mantra, free voice, meditation, yin and restorative yoga, sound healing, movement, ritual, breathing exercises and more.

Sound and voice has been a potent healing modality for centuries from the sacred plainchant of monks and the powerful intoning of a shaman’s voice, to the ancient mystery schools in India and Egypt. It is now being supported by western science to promote health and well being which can be beneficial for certain ailments as well as regulating the para-sympathetic nervous system in order to restore a deep sense of calm, equilibrium and homeostasis in the mind-body.

This is a unique opportunity to find your heart song and connect with your true inner vibration.

Come and explore the power of sound using voice, world chant, sound healing, yin yoga, meditation and much more!

No vocal experience needed.

A wonderful opportunity to relax, let go and recharge with experienced and supportive facilitators, Gavin Frank and Siobhan Swider.

The knower of the mystery of sound knows the mystery of the whole universe. Hazrat Inayat Khan
