Benefits of Sounds and Silence Retreat

Held monthly in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland sound healing Queensland offers this retreat as an opportunity for you to rest in deep presence surrounded by stunning nature. Our lives are profoundly busy with financial, work and family commitments and these can pull us in many directions. This can leave us feeling exhausted and overcommitted with no down time for healthy selfing or self-care. If this goes on too long our mental, emotional and physical health can suffer. So, this time is for YOU. Stress is the underlying cause of most diseases, making self-care and rejuvenation an important aspect of our health and happiness. 

“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything.”
– Plato
