Tune in and Tune up!


A new initiative for Luminate 2019, the Sound Healing Sanctuary is an intentional, ambient aural landscape for relaxation, meditation and healing heart-brain coherence, through the interplay of sound and silence offered by healers and musical alchemists.


Curated and held by the sound healers at Luminate, it is a deep and heartfelt offering of a relaxing space of aural intention, and perhaps come into a new consciousness around sound; an opportunity to tune in to a fuller resonance with ourselves and others, and tune up to the higher frequencies of human consciousness.


As this is an evening activity please be self-responsible about nurturing your body for warmth and optimal receptivity, and feel free to bring blankets or cushions, and perhaps a warm drink from Chill or Superfood café.


Thursday 31st directly after the Welcome Ceremony


Sacred Sound Journey, with sound healer Nikki Wilmsett, will open our hearts and guide our journey in setting clear intentions for Luminate. Nikki uses rose quartz crystal bowls and instruments tuned to 432 hz & 528hz, the vibration of nature and our deeper heart resonance. She will be joined by Georgia Duder-Wood and Sonia Wilson, both healers working in voice, to open and tune the space and ourselves to the energies of the crystal mountain on which we gather.



Wednesday 6th directly after the Integration Ceremony
