A life-changing, 5-day, in-person event
June 14-19, 2023
Sunrise Ranch, Loveland, Colorado

Featuring Sound-Healing Practitioners, Teachers,
and Musical Performers From Around the World!
Only days left to register for this transformative week of sound, movement, and ceremony!
 
 
 

Gather with world-renowned experts and immerse yourself in a sanctuary of sound, movement, and ceremony in the beautiful Rocky Mountain foothills

 

You’re invited to join us for five spectacular days to immerse yourself in the latest science, healing music, technological innovation, and breakthrough possibilities in the field of sound healing — as you connect intimately with many of the world’s most accomplished leaders in the field.

As you enter into the sonic ceremony that we’ll be co-creating over five days, you’ll have an opportunity to activate your body’s innate healing powers through proven sound-therapy techniques... receive profound cellular healings... learn practices to harmonize your body, mind, and spirit... and elevate your awareness to a higher level of consciousness.

World-renowned leaders in sound healing will guide you to explore various instruments, tools, and technologies in a supportive and nurturing space, so you can experience the blessing of this work and make it part of your daily life.

Many participants in the first year’s retreat described it as “heaven,” perhaps because we’re creating a truly elevated and enlightened way of being — a glimpse of heaven on Earth.

Sound-healing research continues to demonstrate what our ancient ancestors innately knew as they worked with drums, flutes, rattles, and more — sound is uniquely healing, uplifting, and unifying.

From ancient shamanic rituals to frontier technologies, sound offers a powerful way to heal disease, reduce stress, and uplift our emotional state — making it not only effective, but also enjoyable. Carefully curated frequencies help release tension, calm the mind, and promote a state of deep relaxation.

The location for this year’s Sacred Sound Healing Retreat is a 400-acre ranch in Loveland, Colorado, close to the natural geologic marvel known as Red Rocks. In addition to its rugged mountainous terrain and breathtaking natural beauty, the area is also known for its incredible natural acoustics. For hundreds of years, its spiritual and healing qualities have drawn musicians and healers to practice their crafts and ceremonies.

Seen through the lens of frequency, your body is itself an electrical instrument in vibratory relationship with the world... and when you take the time to properly tune it, a natural alignment process can lead to the healing you seek.

From a place of harmonious alignment between your self and the collective, far more is possible in your life.

If you’re feeling the call to not only explore the next step on your healing journey, but also to take a profound leap forward in the evolution of who you’re becoming... this promises to be one of the deepest places that you can do so, immersed in a community of awakening individuals and profound technologies of the sacred.

You’ll have a chance to build community with like-minded enthusiasts and sound-healing practitioners, and create new, meaningful connections that can last a lifetime.

You’ll explore and experience leading-edge modalities practiced by renowned sound healers from around the world — who are harnessing ancient and modern practices that are increasingly validated by scientific research.

You’ll deepen your path of self-discovery and healing — awakening, liberating, and aligning your unique voice — to harmonize your biofield and awaken the powers that lie within you.

Here’s What You’ll Receive Each Day:

  • Morning breakout sessions offering diverse practices to begin your day with movement, sound, and ritual — whether it’s a sound bath, a cacao ceremony, yoga, drumming, or more — you’ll choose what calls to you in the moment
  • Faculty keynote presentations with world-renowned sound-healing experts
  • Sound-healing attunements — experiential presentations to introduce you to faculty and techniques, so you’ll have a sense of which faculty and modalities you’d like to explore further in the afternoon breakout sessions
  • Afternoon breakout sessions to receive feedback as you more fully explore and practice specific sound-healing modalities
  • Collaborative community sessions for hands-on musical co-creations
  • Evening performances featuring faculty concerts, sound baths, ceremonial sound healings, ecstatic dance, and more
  • Farm-to-table meals — featuring fresh food from the on-site gardens and greenhouses, with the ranch’s own grass-fed beef and lamb, and eggs from their pasture-raised chickens
  • Plenty of time for meditation, reflection, relaxation, absorbing newfound wisdom, and aha! moments
  • A deeper understanding of how to apply music and frequencies to heal specific traumas and access higher states of consciousness
  • Opportunities to soak in the serene, spiritual beauty of this magical Colorado valley at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains
 
 
 
 

This event served as a healing balm and an opportunity to see the power and strength within myself — to come back to myself using my own voice! Every facilitator was so incredibly supportive, meeting us where we were and radiating such joy about sound that they created the perfect safe container for all... I could not have asked for a better sound-healing experience!
— Jennifer, North Carolina (2022 retreat participant)

I went to the retreat hoping for a complete reset. After a week immersed in sound and frequency, I came away with not only a complete reset, but a novel approach to attaining health and wellbeing.

What Participants Said About Last Year’s Sacred Sound Healing Retreat

 
 

2022 Sacred Sound Healing Retreat attendees experienced a sanctuary of nourishing sound therapies to cleanse them of the density of recent years — leaving them replenished, energized, and whole. Here’s what participants had to say about last year’s retreat...

Here’s what participants had to say about last year’s retreat...

“... a powerful week to explore the full range of what sound and sound healing can do for us…”
 

This was a powerful week to explore the full range of what sound and sound healing can do for us — physically, emotionally, spiritually, and socially. From the very first session to the very last — sound, voice, and the body as a sacred tuning instrument and a powerful activator of peace, love, health, and community was explored and shared. I’ve known we’re electrical, vibrational beings, but my commitment to living in and through that knowing has deepened considerably. That’s a powerful gift, a powerful shift.
— Allannah, California

“I could not have asked for a better sound-healing experience!”
 

This event served as a healing balm and an opportunity to see the power and strength within myself — to come back to myself using my own voice ! Every facilitator was so incredibly supportive, meeting us where we were and radiating such joy about sound that they created the perfect safe container for all. I could not have asked for a better sound-healing experience!
— Jennifer, North Carolina

“... a novel approach to attaining health and wellbeing.”
 

I went to the retreat hoping for a complete reset. After a week immersed in sound and frequency, I came away with not only a complete reset, but a novel approach to attaining health and wellbeing.

“It felt like coming home…”

“I left wanting to make it a core part of my everyday life…”
 

The retreat made me realize how much sound means to me. I left wanting to make it a core part of my everyday life, not just an add-on.
— Anonymous

“The toning really opened me up to a lot of emotional processing…”
 

This is the first time I was able to access my inner child wound and release. The toning really opened me up to a lot of emotional processing, which was really appreciated. The fire ceremony was beautiful and one of the highlights of the week!
— Anonymous

“... a reminder to take time daily for my personal sound-healing practice.”
 

This was a reminder to take time daily for my personal sound-healing practice. I experienced sounding and toning different sounds to help the chakras and different parts of the body, which I will integrate into my sound-healing practice. This helped me realize that I need to let go of the fear of using my own voice in front of people and my clients to achieve a deeper healing experience.

Here’s What Students of Our Sacred Sound Healing Retreat Faculty Are Saying...

 
“Eileen McKusick’s instruction inspired me to trust my instincts...”

It always surprises and inspires me how sound vibrations can reach the stuck spaces and release emotional blocks. Eileen McKusick’s instruction inspired me to trust my instincts and to allow “play” to guide my choices with tones, energy centers, elements, voicing, color, and healing imagery with specific organs in the body. Super grateful for Eileen’s genuine delivery and teaching skills.
Reba Wiedner, Seguin, Texas

“The whole experience is like a taste of heaven.”

I have had such a vibrant experience. The Brothers Koren are so true, generous, and welcoming. It really is a soul-to-soul walk in a safe environment. I found myself so much more able to sing my soul and express my voice with more confidence. The whole experience is like a taste of heaven.
— Josette Boucher, Québec, Canada

“This was the perfect gift to myself to ease the stress of these difficult times.”

This was the perfect gift to myself to ease the stress of these difficult times. Using the breath, connecting to nature through a wooden flute... the sound helps to soothe my soul and calm my emotions during turbulent times. Thank you, Christine Stevens, for all you offer!
— Jayna, Minneapolis, Minnesota

“Fred Johnson weaves magic with his improv voice and drumming...”

Fred Johnson weaves magic with his improv voice and drumming, and creates a vibrant ambiance that inspires connection, creativity, and play. Fred is the music director and lead musical facilitator for many of Jack Canfield’s large group events (Jack authored the Chicken Soup for the Soul books), and he’s invited back year after year because of the high vibe space he creates in the room.
