Voice of the Heart

A Transformational Vocal Retreat To Experience Freedom & Embody Your Truth

MAY 15-22, 2019
Los Angeles de Rivas, COSTA RICA


Light of Sound presents

Have you ever felt blocked in your self expression or challenged in speaking your truth? Are you familiar with that haunting feeling of fear to show up authentically in the world? 

Maybe you’ve felt the stirring of your soul calling, but the anxiety of sharing your voice keeps you from sharing your fullest expression. 

You know you are called to share your gifts with the world, but you have difficulty holding your boundaries. Or perhaps it is hard for you to be vulnerable in your intimate relationships and friendships.

You have begun your journey towards inner healing, and you yearn to break free from the traumas of your past wounds. You have done the work to connect more deeply with yourself, and you still crave the freedom that comes with really knowing your divine feminine essence.

You’re dreaming of moving beyond your limiting beliefs and embodying your medicine. You long for the confidence to show up fully and share your whole self. 

You’re done with feeling stuck and playing small. You’re ready to unleash your full self expression, embody your gifts, and share your medicine - your SOUL SONG - with the world.

Hello Beautiful One,

We feel it too, Sistar.

You are not alone. We are intimately familiar with that haunting anxiety. So caught up limiting beliefs, we were afraid to express ourselves, too. Trapped by silence and our own fear, we watched others blossom, wondering when we’d gain the courage to speak, to sing, to shine.

We are also on this Journey.

We still battle that fear, Amor. We just got tired of it holding us back. Through some hard, deep work -and some beautiful, lighthearted play- we went on a deep journey and came out on the other side to share. We don’t have it all figured out, but we have been doing this work long enough to know it works. We have tools and practices that have forever changed us. And now we want to share them with you.

Our Voices are the Key.

Our individual stories are different, but they began with coming home to the truest part of ourselves: the voice of the heart. Through discovering our singing voices, we were able to connect with our divine essence of love, more deeply tune into our soul’s purpose, shed the layers of programming that were holding us back, and find greater expression. We learned to use the vibrations of the voice to shift and align our thoughts, to break through the fear, find healing, and reclaim our own power. 

Will you join us, Love?

All the answers you seek are inside of you. We invite you to be held in sacred space with us on your own journey to connect with your heart, hear from your inner guidance, free your voice, empower yourself, and share your Soul Song.

With Your Soul's Purpose

The Obstacles

Your Soul Song

Through fire ceremonies, river plunging, toning, vocal activation & other modes of expression, we will move through the barriers to transformation. We will enter deep into the healing process and transmute the pain into power.

We’ll use group work, 1:1 coaching, and various practices to help you hear your voice and learn how to express it. Through ecstatic dance, cacao ceremony, and soul embodiment portraiture, you’ll connect with your soul song and find expression.

Join us in guided meditations, sound ceremonies, mantra chanting, journaling exercises, art therapy, and other creative modalities to tune into the deepest part of our yearning - the voice within that’s calling us into communion with our divine selves and the greatness and our mission.
