Sound Medicine Festival 2023


We believe that Music & Sound are the Medicine of the future and the future is NOW!!

This year we are super exited to make one of our dreams come true... A Gong Camp / Sound Healing Gathering / Chill out Jamming with friends by the River / A sharing of Grounding and Connecting Practices / Time for Music, Art, Movement, Nature, where we can release doing and drop into being. We have called it the "Sound Medicine Festival", and it is happening from 21 to 26 June 2023!!

Join us and our Guests for 4 full days of Gongs, Movement and Sound Healing in a celebration of life at the banks of the River Genal, in Andalucía, Spain! Celebrating the Summer solstice, where we will weave our dreams into being with threads of Sound.

Our aim is to share the use of sound and music as medicine in our daily lives. A time to disconnect from your routine and connect with your essence and wellbeing.

The Festival will take place at a beautiful spot at the banks of the Genal River. A peaceful heaven where you can feel the power of nature and all the elements caress your soul.

During this Festival we will have several special guests, who also happen to be dear friends, offering their art as part of the programme. Each of them professionals and masters of their offerings, which aim to connect you with you body and feelings through breath, movement and sound. Creating a space where you can release and empower yourself.

This gathering is for all ages. Families are welcome!!

Our daily practice is to connect deeply with nature and listen to her inner song, through the birds, the wind, the river and all the beings that inhabit this earth. Our mission is to gather with like minded people, who practice and search for new ways of connecting, with themselves, with nature and with humanity as a whole. Sustainable living woven together by the threads of Music and sound.

Sound Medicine Festival was borne of a dream...

Meet the dreamers: Tom Soltron & Abby Delsol of Tone of life

Just click on our names to read more about us...

Nature informs how we create and perceive sound. Over the years, there have been multiple systems set up to unify sound, often in a Western context and understanding of hertz, and universal tunings to them. We rely on earlier and more primal origins of sound based in nature and the elements (air, fire, water, ether, earth.), and our direct relationship with it.

Sound Medicine Festival is that return to a more primal, intuitive and felt way of perceiving the vibration that unites and heals us. We live in a modern world, with many new technological tools available to make sound, to share sound, to measure sound.... basically to 'science' sound and encapsulate everything into a concept or a system. It seems we have forgotten how to feel sound, how to bypass the mind and trust our most primal sense of intuition and non-analytical hearing... everything has to be explained, and what we overlook is that sometimes the explanation is just strengthening our mental approach and distancing us from just 'Feeling' though our skin, ears, eyes, nose, mouth and above all Heart.

This is a time to dance together, make music together, make art together, create ceremony together, experience the healing power of Nature and Sound together.

Meet our Friends:

Lukas Med aka El Coyotee MEDicina

“I am already given to the power that rules my fate. I cling to nothing, so I have nothing to defend. I have no thoughts, so I will See. I fear nothing, so I will remember myself. Detached and at ease, I will dart past the Eagle To be Free” -Carlos Castaneda

My first encounter with the Path of the Heart began in 2001, when accidentally a book, called “The Teachings of Don Juan: A Yaqui Way of Knowledge”, landed in my hands. This was the beginning. After finishing all Carlos books, it was time for the experience and practical work of the Unknown. I met my first teacher, and the encounters with the other side, plus Magical Passes (Tensegrity), which I practice and teach until this very day, began. Again, this was just an another beginning. I felt I have started on the path which will never end and I loved it. The year 2012 arrived, and with its new beginnings, with few brothers, we have created “The Men Drumming Circle” in Warsaw. Spending time in a sacred circle with brothers made me realised about the little dream that I had: going to Mexico and follow the stories of Carlos Castaneda and maybe find descendants of Toltecs. In 2015 the dream came true and I went for the 3-month journey to Mexico and Peru. I found the Huichol people, the descendants of Toltecs, set in the circle with their elders, met with the marakame, and much more. This journey changed me forever. I came back a different, but the same person, the person, which my heart always knew I had been. This is the path of the heart, which i am traveling, traversing, looking breathlessly and now I am sharing it with you and invite you to experience your own. Are you ready?

Tensegrity: Magical Passes are the series of movements delivered from ancient shamans of Mexico and transformed into Tensegrity by Carlos Castaneda to unlock, move and balance stuck energy in our bodies. Tense and integration which is hidden in the movements creates strong, positive vibrations use to silence our mind, free our potential, strengthen our bodies, remove toxins and give us courage to live our lives full-on. Power of the silenced mind, opens the door to perceive with our Heart. Teaches us to listen to the guide inside, to the healer, the master.
