We would like to welcome you as we do each year, to our magical space in the heart of the Polish mountains. Our retreat centre is a unique space surrounded by forests and nature with a hall full of Gongs and interesting instruments, where transformation and learning 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.
The meeting is dedicated to all of those who are fascinated by the Gong, Musical Improvisation, Sacred Geometry, Yoga and above all for those who feel resonance with the beauty of Nature, whose character in the place of our meeting is unique, primordial and cosmic at the same time.
The Intensive Gong and Sound Retreat 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 sound and light. 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
Each topic is a workshop unto itself that extends over time. The time you give it. We offer you tools to expand, experiment and develop your own practices with sound, movement and light.

“I am still vibrating but also bit tired after these 10 days. Still processing but also having so many ideas how to integrate the things I learned into my work. You both did a really great job. One thing which I also find quite outstanding is he way you interacted with the group, how you were available and open for questions and a chat during meal times. That’s not very common as many facilitators “disappear” during breaks… I really enjoyed your presence as a somewhat “normal” family with no “attitude”, very relaxed, warm and welcoming! you really made us feel at home! thanks for everything…” Sangeet, Germany – 9 day Intensive Gong & Sound Therapy Training, August 2017
During this training we work in an organic and integrated way:
We shall introduce MEM Yoga with profound yoga practices each morning. We will go through some techniques on how to practice MEM yoga for yourself, how to revitalise and strengthen your body through this simple yet effective practice which will support your personal process, whatever that may be. Sharing some simple exercises to share before the Gong Bath or Sound experience, understanding 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. Which in light of our evolution and the accelerated times in which we live are very useful tools in bringing forth the awareness of our Innate Self. Sound without a doubt is the strongest tool that allows our consciousness to travel to known and unknown realities. 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 the key to the fullest expression of the Soul and fulfilling our destination. This is the goal of our gathering. Through the Gong, the heavenly being which spiritualizes matter and is a friend to all, in spontaneous improvisation and with the love songs we gather in one space that helps you reach whatever your need may be in your life journey.
“The gong is the doorway! And for 9 days I stepped through every doorway presented to me. A full mind, body, spirit experience – a stillness and an awakening at the Tone of Life Gongs & Instruments sound healing training. Thank you to Tom Soltron andAbby DelSol for such a rejuvenating and restorative journey. I’m still in awe! I feel deeply connected to the gong and the mirror that it is.” Ashley, US – 9 day Intensive Gong & Sound Therapy Training, August 2017
Process of Letting Go
Our state Full of Potential seem to be hidden in our brain in low range Alfa waves very close to the frequency of the Earth. In the present time we are constantly bombarded with and into Beta waves where tension is high. When we experience Beta for a long time, our body, mind and soul becomes out of balance. HAARP, television, Cell phones, WIFI, processed foods and high expectations from the System and society we live in simply force us to be overload with information, fear and duality.
Traumatic experiences from the past or our Family tree which we do not embrace, also stop us from reaching our full potential and do not allow us to experience full Creative Heart Consciousness.
During our experiences we have found that one very effective way to move to natural a state of Deep Alfa is to bring yourself to a state of neutrality. This we have found can be achieved through the true forgiveness of your Self. For this we prepared a special way to exercise this process, which we will share with you during this workshop.
“I had a wonderful time in Poland with the team of Tone of Life. I have a deep understanding now of playing the gongs. I also experienced the wonderful and free atmosphere in the training as healing for myself. I could recommend this training to everybody who wants to be more free in making music and get a deep understanding of playing the gong and experience the healing sounds of these gongs.” Joyce, Holland – 9 day Intensive Gong & Sound Therapy Training, August 2017
Sound is one of the most powerful tools that very much supports all of the above.
The Sound of the Gong and other frequencies that we use in the workshop, help you to release, let go and open your self to all that you are.
MYSTERY OF MYSTERIES
Absolute is that, which is absolute;
Out of absolute comes absolute
If absolute is deprived of absolute,
