Transforming women’s lives through the power of sacred sound.
A programme of six study/retreat days.
Next Programme:- Spring 2021
The Sound of Grace is...that moment when your heart softens, opens, and then soars with re-awakened joy.
The Sound of Grace is…that sense of knowing you have come home to yourself and connected deeply to your authenticity, truth and Oneness with all beings.
The Sound of Grace is...moving beyond your habitual thoughts, patterns of behaviour, history or even imagined future.
The Sound of Grace is…YOU! Open to receive divine healing through sacred sound practices that can transform your life.
Grace: Deliverance (bestowed by the divine) from enemies, affliction or adversity. Receiving daily guidance, forgiveness and preservation (of life). From the Greek ‘charis’ or ‘charo’ which means rejoice or sweetness.
By drawing on ancient healing modalities – sacred chant and mantra, cross-cultural music journeys, shamanic healing postures, vocal maps, movement, and silence – The Sound of Grace is when our heart-self, our soul, resonates deeply with, and dissolves into, the sacred vibration that is the Source of all life – Love.
For thousands of years music, sound and voice have been used for health, healing and spiritual connection. The Sound of Grace transformational programme for women draws on this wisdom, igniting, connecting and balancing both the sacred and the practical; we live in the 21st century yet our difficulties are no different to those that have walked the path before us.
“Before its incarnation the soul is sound.
It is for this reason that we love sound.”
Hazrat Inayat Khan

You will learn a wide repertoire of healing chants and mantras from the Hindu, Buddhist, Tibetan and Indonesian traditions. From simple, single syllable chakra chants to longer mantras to remove obstacles, call in abundance, heal karmic blocks, receive protection, increase love in your life, nourish and nurture…and so much more!
You will experience cross-cultural music journeying and ancient healing postures for self-enquiry and to access your inner wisdom, clear blocks, inspire, uplift and empower – supporting and protecting you as you travel through this life and learn to ride the waves.
The ‘Vocal Maps’ we explore will allow you to clear, heal and energise your 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 you 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…
We will co-create a safe, compassionate healing space, your Tribe, to support and encourage growth, moving beyond your comfort zones, embracing and expanding into Life!
You will receive individual and group coaching that explores your motivation, obstacles or resistance, supporting you to make the changes you desire, one step (mantra!) at a time…
Between session conference calls/webinars to keep connected, continue learning and create a regular self-care practice.
“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.
We meet for 6 retreat days between October 2020 and March 2020, co-creating a sacred circle of supportive women – your Tribe! You will benefit from individual and group healing. A mid-session conference call offering you on-going support and guidance, and a time to chant together. A study/practice booklet is provided for each session, building to a powerful resource for your future. Recordings of mantras taught are shared via private Dropbox facility. Personal guidance and support is offered for home practice – including mantra, chant and cross-cultural music ‘prescriptions’. I am so thankful to be joined and supported by Amanda Bailey M.A. Drama Therapist and Theta Healer/Teacher – she has co-facilitated the Sound of Grace programme since it’s inception.
