Forging Sound and Self
Orkney has been calling us - sometimes in a quiet whisper or a song coming in from the winds…at other times beckoning with a deep tug…
Bring the people, the forge and craft sound...
Be with the ancients, the stars, the land, the sea, the stones...and those yet to come.
You are invited to bring new instruments into form, each carrying unique vibrational frequencies of sound in a landscape that seems so close to the star origins we each carry.
This is a journey that invites you to come into your own resonance through Sound and with the Earth through the crafting and forging of a singing bowl and attunement to place.
During this six day retreat we will spend three days visiting and receiving the energies of the land, the special sites, the standing stones, circles, cairns and initiation places and three days forging an instrument – your own singing bowl - in co-creation with the energies of the pre-solstice season and place.
Through both the visits to these sites and the singing bowl crafting we can develop and extend our ‘listening’, ie perceiving, sensing and expanded awareness - attunement tools that open our lives to living more consciously in relation to all of life.
We will explore and work with sound and resonance to enter into communion with the land and the sky.
The islands of Orkney off the north coast of Scotland hold incredible treasure - the largest stone circles of the British Isles under a vast open sky – home to chambered cairns, standing stones, ancient settlements and much more.
Recent archaeological and spiritual findings suggest that a high culture of great magnitude existed in these islands – spreading out as far as Scandinavia and all across the British Isles, of which Orkney seemed to be the hub. This culture predates the Egyptian high culture. Artefacts, symbols and other evidence found in Egypt have been traced back to Scotland and in particular Orkney.
Spiritual research has shown that The Orkney Islands were a vast galactic university accessing information from many star-nations that were involved in seeding the Earth - the stone circles themselves transmitting and receiving for thousands of years. Through inner vision we have seen that the original 60 stones of The Ring of Brodgar have been anchor points for pillars of light and portals of information.
Whether consciously or not, being on Orkney gives us access to our history way beyond the linear stories of our history books. Each of the stones and sites has the ability to trigger and unlock or awaken codes. The invitation for this journey is not only to allow ourselves to receive and activate these codes but also to co-create with them, birthing new instruments that will outlast you and many future generations.
Venue - Woodwick House
Our home base will be an inviting guest house and gathering place near the northern eastern coast of the main island.
Woodwick House is close to the shore in one of the few groves of trees that exist on Orkney. We will work in a magical garden with a stream running through it…early summer bluebells providing the gift of this season of maximum light!!!
