>>Due to the transformative nature of this event, please mindfully invite loved ones. <<

Alexandre Tannous is an ethnomusicologist, a sound therapist and researcher. For the past 13 years he has been investigating the therapeutic and esoteric properties of sound from three different perspectives—Western scientific and academic, Eastern philosophical, and shamanic societal beliefs—to gain a deeper understanding of how, and to what extent, sound has been used to affect human consciousness. This search has led him to the intersection of art, science, philosophy, and spirituality, and has provided him with a deeper understanding of how sound reveals and unlocks hidden powers that promote profound inner transformation and healing.

In ancient Tibet and India, meditation was a mental but also a physical yoga -- a dynamic exploration into what it means to be alive biologically and spiritually at our most vibrant levels. Moving in guided ways, including Continuum -- a slow, spontaneous yoga for our time invented by the late great Emilie Conrad -- we use breath and our moving bodies to gain access to the deep cosmic oceans within. 

You will have the unique opportunity to soak in live raga music performances during your journey-work sound meditation and through out the weekend from acclaimed raga musicians as supplements enhance deep listening.
