Himalayan Drums. Buddhist, Bon, and Shamanic ritual pieces.

Hermes, Stapp, Rife, Bohm, Pribham, Bohr, Emoto and more.
We have selected Taos Mountain Center in Taos, New Mexico to host
this year's event. This beautiful high altitude location will not only be a wonderful backdrop for our program, but will afford
us the opportunity to launch an optional day trip to Puye Cliff Dwelling, Rio Grande Gorge, or Chaco Canyon. This will enable
us to work directly with the Earth Spirits and Ancestors by making offerings, and connecting through our sound tools and with
Our next western USA 5 day Retreat will not be until 2006.
This series of classes and workshops are designed to assist the
student, artist, or practitioner to gain new perspectives and experiences through the ancient world of sacred sounds, vibrational
healing, and meditation; with centuries old, authentic tools and techniques.
Our Retreats are organized to consolidate a diverse group of gifted
individuals within an atmosphere that is Academic ( in Knowledge ), Shamanic ( in Nature ), and Sanctified ( for Respect to
All ). You will gain invaluable experience with these instruments and these Shamanic, Buddhist, and Bon avenues of training
and perspectives. This approach gives you a solid foundation in sonic applications, vibrational healing, and shamanic and
enlightened meditative practices.
This is our 11th annual Retreat. Our past Retreats have been a joyful,
at times intensive, but always a transformative event that can allow for New Perspectives and New Directions to emerge in
one's personal and professional life. This is truly a unique and unforgettable experience. As always, our 5 day event features
new and exciting workshops as well as new updates on sonic technologies.
