We would like to welcome you, as we do each year to an experiential Training/Retreat all about Gongs, Sound Therapy and You!
Will take place from the
19th to the 27th of May 2023 at our Urban retreat Centre in the magical peaceful village of Jubrique in Andalusia, Spain. Just 40 minutes from the seaside, this little piece of paradise is set in a unique micro climate expressed not only by its diverse nature, forests, streams, rivers, wild aromatic herbs, organic ecological conscious farming and breathtaking views, but also the people who live in this small, lively White village. Acceptance and community are the driving force here in this place where nature dictates the pace of life and each season shows its own force through smells, colours and sounds. We have found this place to be a perfect setting for our Sound Medicine Retreats.
At the Tone of Life Holistic Centre we have a hall full of Gongs and interesting instruments, where transformation and learning can happen in an organic and gentle way. Taking you on a journey through sound where you can learn new techniques, and practice diverse and varied methods of delivering sound as a way of healing.

Setting the Stage
The meeting is dedicated to all of those looking to incorporate
Sound Therapy into their healing practice, fascinated by the Gong, Musical Improvisation, Movement, Yoga and above all for those who feel resonance with the beauty of Art and Nature, whose character in the place of our meeting is unique, primordial and cosmic at the same time.
The Intensive Gong and Sound Therapy Training accommodates both beginner, intermediate and advanced students of the Gong and Sound as a tool for healing. A time to go deep within yourself and the practice of healing through movement & sound. Through living the experience we become more attuned when we offer the experience. Dance the dance, sing the song, lead your own journey.
“The 9 day Intensive Gong and Sound Therapy Training is much more than a training, it is a continuous sharing of life experiences and knowledge.I feel that I have digged to the bottom of questions that are fundamental for my evolution as a human being and as a being of light. I had the opportunity to see the world in a 360 degree view and broke the barrier of time and space. Here you have no judges we are all the same. Before I met you I felt that I connected with your lifestyle and vision about the world and the universe, I had the confirmation during these 9 days. Thank you, you are lovely and very special ♥”
Tiago, Portugal – 9 day Intensive Gong & Sound Therapy Training, July 2017

Thank you for an incredible 10 days! It was truly a life changing experience for me. I loved being able to experiment with music in such a playful way. You created a warm, safe space for us to explore with confidence, and to rise to meet unexpected challenges.
It was a privilege to be educated by such enthusiasts and experts in music, holistic therapies and living the good life!
It was refreshing to be taught by teachers who could talk openly about their own mistakes and fears.
I would love to come back for another course and would happily recommend you to others!
Thanks for everything, lots of love!
Kulvinder, London – 9-Day Intensive Gong & Sound Therapy Training, May/June 2018
Heart opening Yoga
Working in an organic and integrated way:
We shall introduce Nature Flow
(MEM) Yoga with profound yoga practices each morning. We will touch on some techniques to revitalise and strengthen your body through this simple yet effective practice which draws from the cycles of nature to support your personal process, whatever that may be. Simple exercises to share before the Gong Bath or Sound experience, with an understanding of the relation between physical and emotional trauma.
We will share with you practical tips in creating
Sacred Sound Healing Ceremonies and spontaneous improvisation as part of the Holistic Healing experience.
Alpha and Omega Music in the present time. How we create it and the effect this has on the individual and evolution of humanity. You will experience the power of the sounds you create with the aid of our professional recording studio facilities.
Together we will practice techniques of meditation and sound which we have been using for many years.
Sound without a doubt is the strongest tool that allows our consciousness to travel to known and unknown spaces. These are the years of assimilation of our feelings, emotions; the time of release and purification. Moving forward to the next level of evolution, we move to our
Heart space. The power of intention, gathering in groups, the feeling of love and creative art, are one of the keys to the fullest expression of the Soul. This is the goal of our gathering. Through the Gong, in spontaneous improvisation and with love songs we gather in one space that helps you reach whatever your need may be in your life journey.
My main intent was to find a tool to calm my busy mind, when I booked the 9 days intense training. But what I got out of this experience is beyond words. My passion for music, instruments and intuitive playing evoke and the result was that I immediately unpacked my guitar (which I never learned to play) after returning to Germany. Abby, Tom and our guest teacher Esteban shared their wisdom and passion in a genuine and authentic way. Every little detail reflected their love behind it. The space they created seemed like a little paradise, which felt like home. My personal workshop experience was like a flow with the waves of the gongs, which were our daily company. Sometimes the waves were gentle, sometimes they would reach peaks and then would glide into silence accompanied by peace. Many voices, sounds, movements, songs, laughter, tears, stories and emotions have been shared between us and led to a beautiful memorable experience.
Daria Meinert, Germany – 9-Day Intensive Gong & Sound Therapy Training, July 2018
During this time, we use
many instruments as well as the Gongs with their various qualities and characters, including the elements. As after all, we are made up of all the elements which represent each one of us on a very unique level. We work with these elements with the Gongs, the voice, dance and movement. These are all very simple techniques which we used naturally as children. We offer them in a ceremonial way with awareness, reconnecting with our inner child, our intention, our need, our desire beyond our mind. By clearing the space we can meet in our heart and hear the voice of our soul which is constantly in touch with us.
Simple practices which come from the elements themselves, from the earth, from the forest, from the ocean, from the desert, from the mountains, from the sky, from the stars, from our soul… to go deep within ourselves though music, meditations and movement. Originating from our many years of experience, listening and responding to the needs of many from all the layers of existence!
Here are just some of the activities we wish to share:
Many, many Sacred Sound Ceremonies & Gong Baths
Lots of Gonging
Tribal Sound Journey
Trance Dance & Dynamic Meditations
Singing Bowl Massage
Chanting, Toning, Singing…
Singing Bowl Massage in the Water
