Sunday Evening Sound Healing

The Healing Power of Voice, Music, and Sound

with Lana Ryder and the Council of Sound

Join Lana and the Council of Sound for an evening of healing through the power of sound. 


The rich sonic textures and vibrations from a variety of indigenous and new world instruments will entrain you to a state of deep relaxation, stillness and magic. We’ll travel to that deep peace that passes understanding where your soul recognizes this call of yearning from your true home. We will immerse in the soothing assurance where your heart is safe to open anew and be comforted in the Secret Place of The Most High. We’ll enter there together and enjoin our authentic voices on that holy ground. This is truly a profoundly moving journey into sacred sound, beyond words, yet speaking to the deepest desires of our souls.
