Dive Into Life!

A transformational healing circle for women
A programme of six study/retreat days from
May to November 2018


An Invitation to all women…

  • Find and express your Authentic Voice
  • Connect to your Feminine Wisdom and Power
  • Heal – Release – Transform!
  • Dive into a sacred path of personal and spiritual development, connecting to your heart’s purpose and joy.
  • CURIOUS? Arrange a free, personal one-to-one call (Skype or telephone) to explore how this may support you at this time. (Via contact form)

This programme supports women to co-create a transformative and healing Sacred Sound Circle. We will draw upon cross-cultural sound techniques – chant, mantra, vocal maps, music journeying, shamanic healing postures, silence and inquiry.

“For thousands of years sacred sound, chant and mantra have been used for health, healing and spiritual connection.

“The vibration clears, balances and strengthens us mentally, physically and emotionally. And it goes beyond our physical self – to our “Soul-Self”: supporting our spiritual development and growth. Ancient healing for 21st century souls.”

“Amazing! I absolutely loved this programme and can’t wait for level 2” LD, Winscombe. Somerset.

This is for you if:

  • Your Heart desires healing – from pain, grief, loss, rejection, life’s events that shape and make us… transform these wounds into places of peace, self-compassion, joy.
  • You would like to develop true confidence, self-esteem and inner strength to ride the waves of life.
  • You serve others in this world – as a therapist, carer, wife, mother, teacher, doctor, daughter… and this work offers you a sacred way of self-care.
  • You want to have fun, laugh, be more joyous, crazy, and connect with fellow wild, wise women!

What you’ll find happening on the course…

We will engage with cross-cultural music and ancient healing postures to access our inner wisdom, clear blocks, inspire, uplift and empower – supporting and protecting us as we travel through this life and learn to ride the waves.

The ‘Vocal Maps’ we explore will allow us to clear, heal and energise our energy centres (chakras); individual voice assessments are included in this work to reveal energetic blocks, (stagnation or ‘over-use’) and sound/music ‘prescriptions’ are offered for individual practice.

Individual, diad and triad ‘Naked Voice’ practices are incorporated, providing a safe, compassionate listening space in which we are truly heard, from the Heart; expressing yourself freely, without hesitation, with strength, joy and liberation! You are accepted as you are, where you are, and gently guided and encouraged to be so much more…

“This has truly connected me to my inner spirituality in a way other paths haven’t” LF, Axbridge.

“The Sound of Grace helped me at a very difficult personal time; the chants, vocal work, healing music and the supportive group dynamic kept me afloat.” HF, Hants.

What’s included:
We meet for 6 retreat days between May and November 2018*, co-creating a sacred circle of supportive women – your Tribe! You will benefit from individual and group healing.

A study/practice booklet is provided each session, building to a powerful resource for your future. Recordings of mantras taught are shared via private Dropbox facility.

“Sarena has that rare combination of authenticity, compassion and commitment in both her study and practice of cross-cultural music, sound, and voice therapies. She is an excellent coach and guide to the wide-ranging power of music, sound and chant to inspire, educate and heal.
