Join John and Anne Marie on a journey sonic healing. The workshops will include a brief history of sound healing, then participants will then have a chance to play the instruments and learn a variety of techniques and strokes on the gong. The session will end with a 30-minute sound Journey.
Satsangs will begin with light breath work and then flow into a multi-sensory soundscape with a full array of musical experience combining gongs, chimes, bowls and other instruments.
Offered as 3 satsangs and 2 workshops (subject to change).
The presentations associated with this Yoga Vacation Program begin with an 8pm satsang on the first day of the program and conclude with an 8pm satsang on the last day of the program.

Through the harmonious fusion of instruments like tuned plates, gongs, crystals, flutes, khomus, Tibetan singing bowls, shruti box, and tuning forks, John curates a tailored and cohesive experience! With over 17 years of studying and exploring the healing power of sound, John’s musical journey has taken him from the lush Brazilian rainforest to the enchanting Hawaiian islands and beyond. He is an experienced didgeridoo player and also possesses a profound understanding of the healing properties of the guitar in conjunction with plant medicines.
Having studied under renowned sound practitioners such as Don Conreaux, Mitch Nur, Broder Oetken, and Mike Tamburo, John has honed his skills and knowledge to curate a truly unique and transformative sound experience. His sessions are not just sound baths but rather a molecular massage with sound, deepening your inner journey and connecting you with the expansive realms of sound healing.
Anne Marie Miller is a gifted percussionist and Djembe player, exploring the power of sound as a healing modality for over 12 years. In deepening her connection with the drum through the study of Brazilian shamanic music, she recognizes the drumbeat as a maternal, vibratory vehicle that can transport listeners to new states of consciousness, creating a sense of liberation from the mind, and the space to encounter fresh ways of being. Her study and knowledge of the drum translates to gong playing wonderfully. Anne Marie co-hosts sound retreats with her husband and sound partner John Minks.
