Description

Reconnect to source

Sika's sounds invoke a primal memory; a gateway for reconnection to ourselves, to earth and to great mystery.

In this one-day workshop Sika will gently hold space for our own inner enquiry. We'll experience a series of healing sound journeys throughout the day, carrying us into a state of deep relaxation.

We'll hear the hypnotic rhythms of didgeridoo and drums. Exquisite native flutes. Voice, rattles and Māori taonga puoro (‘singing treasures’). Leaves, shells and obscure natural objects. Soundscapes recorded by Sika in the wilds of New Zealand and Australia.

Sika has been offering Sound Journeys for 25 years. Sound journeys are a shamanic style of sound bath. Like gong and sound baths, people lie down and relax to healing sounds. But the ‘journey’ really is a journey – a powerful inner experience. Workshop participants will also sense the physical vibration of the didgeridoo, as Sika moves around the space while playing.

The day will combine:

  • 'Live' sound journeys

  • Time for personal reflection / journalling

  • Wisdom teachings

  • Sharing together as a group

Practical information

Doors will open at 10am so we can settle into the space ready for a 10.30am start. We'll finish at 4pm.

A limited number of Early Bird tickets will be offered until 12th May 2019. Advance booking is recommended as drop-in availability cannot be guaranteed.

Some prior experience of meditation or sound journeys is a bonus, but really not necesary. If you feel called to attend it will be a pleasure to welcome you.


What should I bring?

People generally lie down during the sound journeys, so it's important to make yourself comfortable. We recommend:

  • A yoga mat and/or blanket to lie on

  • A pillow or cushion

  • An extra blanket or shawl to stay warm

You will also need:

  • A notebook for journalling

  • A bottle of water.

  • A packed lunch. Dartington Hall also has a cafe if you prefer to buy food and drinks at lunchtime.

The room has chairs for those who prefer to be seated for some or all of the day. You can bring a meditation cushion if you'd like to use one.

If you have additional mobility needs or questions please let us know asap so we can accommodate you.
