For centuries sound and music have been part of healing rituals throughout the world. In this digital age our minds and bodies are in a constant state of overstimulation that can create stress in the body which, if not released, can manifest as anxiety and even lead to sickness, depression and burnouts. In this concert traditional healing instruments such as the Native American shamanic drums, Tibetan singing bowls, the Aboriginal Didgeridoo will be woven into a meditative musical journey together with the voice to break up blockages and bring balance to the energy centers of the body.

This session will be led by three amazing music professionals with deep spiritual roots Laura Bohn, Efraim Schulz-Wackerbarth and Eric van Grootel (Bearclaw). All three are trained in the ancient wisdom of Paleolithic shamanism as taught by Chief Dancing Thunder of the Susquehannock North American Tribe.

* Laura is a professional Opera singer and Yoga teacher born in Seattle. She has studied world music, the voice and its role in the healing arts for more than 20 years

* Efraim was born in Australia, studied jazz drums at the Conservatory in Amsterdam and now works as a professional drummer and teacher

*Eric is a trained singer, voice coach, composer & conductor. He has been leading workshops to integrate and strengthen the voice as part of a personal growing and healing process for more than 25 years.

In this approximately 90-minute-long lying-down concert we invite you to fully immerse yourself into the healing sounds from around the globe. Enter a sacred inner world where thoughts, concepts and emotions can flow freely and the mind-and body can find deep balance and relaxation. This concert is meant for anyone who appreciates the healing power of music and sound.

Entrance is €20 per person.

Mats, bolsters & blankets provided.
